Re: Bug Bluetooth Dongle not detected by hcitool

Hi, I the details of the patch are here:- http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=66336 I applied the patch and built the Kernel yesterday, I will try tonight to see if it works. I've never built a Kernel before, so there are some BIG question marks as to whether it will actually boot...

Re: What tools do I need to compile a kernel module ?

Hi, I agree there seems to be a fair degree of contradiction with the best methods to build the Kernel. I want to apply a patch to Bluetooth, so have been reading through the various posts and guides, the stock answer seems to be read :- http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilation However this guide al...

Re: USB Robotic Arm

Hi,

Bit of an old one, but I got one of the Maplin USB arms for Xmas, I found this thread and had a play, great........

But I also found this little Python gem that lets you control the arm via a PS3 controller...

Works a treat....

Bluetooth broken in latest releases

Hi, It has been noted elsewhere but thought I would pull things together here in the Raspbian thread... http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=65938 http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=63418&p=469447 http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=65265&p=479...

Re: Bug Bluetooth Dongle not detected by hcitool

Hi,

Many thanks for your reply, that has given me enough to google and find out how to do it...

Really do think this needs sorting out properly and quite quickly, shouldn't be too difficult as there is a working patch available....

Thanks again !

Re: Rii Mini Bluetooth keyboard

Seen the same problem, bit frustrating, fortunately I had a an old image so reverted back to that... Looks like there is a patch for the Kernel but from what I can see its not been accepted for whatever reason, be good if we could get it implemented... https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60824

However I now need it to work for an actual project so will try again with brian9640's suggestion...... However I did come across this and thought it would be worth a pop ...

Re: USB Hub and back power

Hi, To a layman I would say for the majority of cases back power would be a benefit, if you have a weak main PSU it would top it up so to speak..... My hub back powers and I use it to actually power the Pi when I run out of plug sockets... I did read about issues with fuses on the early Pi's whereby...

Hi, Have you seen these, not the cheapest option but you have the option of running stand alone or through the pi. I've got one but must confess not got round to trying it yet, I've seen quite a nice joystick shield my first project was going to try and get that sorted wit PiMAME... http://www.cooco...

Re: All leds blinking

Hiya,

Mine sits on top at the moment, was thinking of getting a ribbon so I can go side by side though this seems more practical. Could it be interference from the Pi causing this then ?

Should have a bread board and lots of link wires coming tomorrow so can have a proper play. :P

Cheers.
