Re: Are microwave oven food healthy?

What the microwave does is make water molecules jiggle very fast, which results in the food getting warmer. As soon as the microwave is turned off, it's perfectly safe. Grmmmm, NO, factually wrong, depends on the size of the microwave: part of almost any water is Deuterium (heavy water). When shake...

Re: "FATAL ERROR: Cannot open disk drive:

Most likely: there is little sliding switch on the side of your SD card. Move it ;)

Second most likely: you can NOT install an OS for the Pi from the Pi itself, you will need another machine.

Third most likely: It is NOT device SDA1 but a different one.

If this still fails, give us more info.

Re: Where can I find "rpi-backend.so"

No need to....
Weston is included and working if you have Raspbian wheezy or Jessie.
In that case: don't boot into lxde but to the shell. You can change that in raspi-config.

After that, simply reboot and type weston-launch at the prompt.

These work with the CPU or possibly even on scriptlevel for now and are slow as long as PHP on the Pi doesn't utilize the GPU (theoretically possible). 1.
