Re: Where are all settings saved?

Settings are in summary stored all over the place! For your usage case I would configure the OS as you want it and then simply create an image of the pre-configured SD card.

I can't complain. Ordered premium Thursday afternoon, and arrived midday Friday.
Hi Roken,

Do you know who the courier company was that delivered it to you and did you get a tracking number?

Re: OKdo - Anyone else not received delivery yet?

I did not pay for premium shipping. I did get an odd tracking number, but it doesn't seem to work. Mine does say shipped. I ordered on Sunday, yesterday. It would appear you don’t get a tracking number even with the premium delivery service. I thought being part of the RS group OKdo would be a safe...

Re: aeroplane live feed to ground

Hmm sounds like an interesting project. What sort of aircraft are we talking about here? I am just guessing but if we are talking full size aircraft which come under CAA regulation then red tape is going to be a nightmare. Recording a video from on board an aircraft obviously happens all of the time...

Re: Wifi Aware

Nope because the hardware needs to be "certified" and the software never made it beyond android. It's a poor standard with even poorer uptake.

Re: Where are the DTBs for Raspbian kernels?

Raspian is the official pi OS and is developed by the foundation. Have you had a read through the official kernel compiling guide? If you follow it to the letter it works just fine.

As far as I am aware, the whole assembled unit would require testing and certifying but costs would be lower if built from pre-certified components.

Re: Clarification on using a 2 lead 5v fan

Never had a problem using a fan at either 3v or 5v. Use 3v for low speed and 5v for a higher speed.

Though those nuts securing the fan would concern me, have you ensured there is no way they can make contact with the board?

Re: DS18B20: Influence of supply voltage on temperature

I would go with 5v myself. To test the accuracy I would use a separate calibrated temperature probe to compare the results. But it depends on what you are trying to achieve and to what accuracy you are trying to measure.

Re: Adjusting system time on daily basis

I maybe wrong but I would have thought just restarting the ntp service would cause it to resync the time. Setup a cron script to run it daily.

sudo service ntp stop
sudo ntpdate -s time.nist.gov

Re: IP Camera interfaced with rpi consuming internet data on large extent

I agree with what B.goode has said, streaming video at decent resolution and framerate requires a lot of bandwidth. Every scenario is different but roughly speaking for video streaming it breaks down as follows.... Low quality video is very low-quality. think 240p or 320p. Low-quality settings will ...

Hi, I have never used webmin before, but looking at your screenshots you appear to be confusing mount points and folders.
