Re: Simple Slideshow Navigator

Eye of Gnome supports the functionality you're looking for. Once it's loaded, and you've opened one of the images in the directory, you can simply hit F5 and it will launch into a slideshow mode with arrow keys available should you wish to use them. The package name under Debian is "eog", so instal...

Re: Learning how to code

There's actually a package of demo code containing a terminal based Snake game which you download here . It might look a little overwhelming at first, but try and make some small changes to it. A lot of professional programming is like this, where you work on making small changes to large projects.

Re: Xbox360 USB control pad

The 360 pad works very well with Linux generally. I've been using one recently for example to play Super Meat Boy under Ubuntu :-) With regards to getting the 360 pad to work with the Pi though, I understand that it requires 5v 450mA which is too much for the Pi's USB ports. Without some heavy modif...

Re: SD Cards and updates

Also, to answer your original question, you can fetch the rpi-update tool from Hexxeh. Run it, and it will pull down the rest of the data.

I still however recommend taking the beta image for a spin when you have the time ;-)

Good luck
