I got my very first Pi B in Japan from old days. So I think they are selling Pi now either.

On Chinese market, there are Japan-made Pi, other than the UK and China-made ones.

Re: Transmission Permission denied

I think it also worth checking "ls -l /media" to tell if the "library" directory could be written by the "debian-transmission" user.

Re: Transmission Permission denied

You need to tell us more.

What you did any way? We can't do telepath to know your situation, and we are lazy so we wont read your cooking recipe.

How did you installed Transmission?

What you see when doing "ls -l /mnt/library".

Re: Transmission Permission denied

Debian packaged Transmission would run as "debian-transmission" other than "pi": https://wiki.debian.org/BitTorrent/Transmission

So if you installed Transmission via "apt-get", you might try mount "UUID=EF4E-0CFC /mnt/library vfat nofail,uid=debian-transmission,gid=debian-transmission 0 0"

If you look closely to Raspbian torrent file URL, you would find out it's not an exactly file name, but something like "raspbian_lastest".

I added @reboot pi /bin/sleep 60;/usr/local/bin/transmission-daemon to /etc/crontab to make it start at boot.

The sleep 60 would wait 60 seconds, so the network system would have some time to boot.

Re: new procedure to enable Pi 2 UART pins for C programs?

- but do you mean: in /boot/config.txt no enable_uart=1 at all, opposite to what dgordon42 wrote? It's not opposite, it's about "complete". enable_uart=1 means lock the core_freq, so you have a stable baud rate for mini-UART. With this line, new Pi like Pi 3 or Pi W would work. But you have a Pi 2....

Re: Options for best 1st purchase of Raspberry Pi et al

Greetings.

I think a Pi, a power supply and a micro SD card is the minimum. There is the official power supply.

Other things depend on what are you going to do. I think use an ethernet cable connecting the Pi to a computer and boot them up could be the first step in the adventure.

I haven't tried those GPIO network modules, they should be slower than USB.

RN 171 looks like quite old, it's 802.11g. Why you choose that anyway?
