Re: Debian Wheezy Wifi adapter support

I got lucky and ended up with two that seem to function fairly stable out of the box on wheezy, even without a powered USB hub and without bypassing any fuses (Using a 1A iphone charger). (my hubs are causing other problems on their own). Tenda W311MI b/g/n "pico" adapter. Rosewill RNX-EasyN1 Wirele...

Re: Controlling Pi via direct connection to Linux laptop

If the laptop has a functioning OS, you just need to make or buy a Cat5/6 network "crossover" cable and do a bit of configuring so that they can talk to eachother without a switch/hub. I need to set this up myself so I'll try to remember to author and share a howto when I do. You can get simple acce...

Re: Hub - No Solution Works..

Here is a "fun" variation on this theme. I have two hubs to test with (both powered). They both seem to work fine with basic devices (keyboard mouse etc). But I have a high quality audio USB/DAC I am trying to get to function stable. I've encountered this in both wheezy and squeeze. Both hubs will g...

Re: Did I order too many Pi's?

:-)

Can't fool us. Sequoia has more cores than total number of pi's shipped to date. But will be neat to see that balance change. ;-)

On that subject, anyone running any distributed computing client platforms on their RasPi yet? If yes which projects are you donating idle cycles to?

Re: Request: Make subscription emails more useful?

It seems like you get a "new subscribed post" email the first time there's an unread post in the topic, but not for any subsequent posts, which means you get "spammed" with less emails. You only get another "new subscribed post" email after there's a new post after you've read the topic in question...

Re: I added a little twist to my case

Very nice tweaks. I like the utility of the included usb-hub and the novelty of burying the microUSB requirement inside the case! Hah! Very functional case.

Just a request. I like that I can subscribe to updates on a topic. But right now the email notifications you get are a bare format with just links to the topic/post. It would be NICE if the content of the post was included too. As all topics here are publicly viewable I don't see a security issue wi...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

If you feel like doing some hardware hacking, I guess you could replace the speakers on the lapdock with a headphone jack? I dunno if the voltage-levels would be compatible though...? If that works but has trouble driving your headphones, there are always plenty of "economical" tiny devices that so...

Re: USB Port Current Boost

Plus there's the USB polyfuse resistance issue which can cause problems at lower currents with some devices. Are these issues often manifested by kernel panics (seemingly at random) when doing i/o to the usb device in question? I've got a USB DAC that is doing that to me right now and haven't narro...

Re: Thinking of making a "Kneetop"

I've been thinking along those lines myself... but minus the display. As my username would suggest... the desire to stick a RasPi inside a Model-M is going to be hard to resist. Many older full size keyboards do seem to have plenty of space for such insanity, I tore apart an old clacky Dell already ...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

With the number of lapdocks being snatched by members of the RasPi community... makes me wonder how long before we see a case design that couples with the factory lapdock connections (with a bit of port re-routing kung-foo)?

This needs to be paired with the "introduce yourself" thread somehow. hehe. Apple iicx (mom's) and a non-memorably branded 286 (dad's).

Re: Sound in Debian

How would one automate this?
You can add the module to load to the file /etc/modules. Just add an additional line containing:

Code: Select all

snd_bcm2835
It will load the sound driver during bootup. The other steps mentioned you should only have to do once.
