Re: cryptsetup luksOpen

What's the filesystem of your LUKS volume?

If it's NTFS for some reason (maybe accessing under Windows) then make sure you are mounting it with the ntfs-3g driver and not the Linux kernel's ntfs driver (which doesn't have full write support)

Re: Virtualise Arch on Raspbian

You can chroot (change root) from Raspbian to Arch. That's probably the fastest way. You'd still be running the Raspbian kernel but you'd have access to all the Arch utilities like pacman, etc. To do that you'd have to extract all the Arch files to some folder in your Raspbian install (e.g. /arch-ch...

Re: RAM drive??

They are just multiple ramdisks you can use. Each one is 16 MB by default, but the memory isn't reserved until you format them. I think these days it's usually better to use tmpfs or ramfs, though: http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2008/11/overview-of-ramfs-and-tmpfs-on-linux Like Tafkas said above, there...

I confirm I cannot install Firefox with apt-get in the emulator.


What about Iceweasel? That's Debian's version of Firefox which is basically the same thing just with different branding.

They appear to have packages for armel.

Re: Introduce yourself!

I'm Steve, 20 years old, and a big Linux/open-source fan.

Not much of a programmer yet, just some python and shell scripting, but I do enjoy tinkering with computers.

Really looking forward to getting my hands on an R-Pi
