Re: Raspbian

There are a million videos on YouTube about it. I actually only hooked a monitor up to it just to see what it looked like but I just use ssh.

Re: Raspbian

Oh, that was just a simple few lines in a shell script using the gpio command. e.g:

Turn a pin on send a 1, turn it off send a 0:

/usr/bin/gpio mode 7 output
/usr/bin/gpio write 7 1

Re: Raspbian

On the power strip that I added the Pi Zero to I just ssh in and set up a cron job to turn the lights on and off every day at the times I want. On an Arduino I would have to write a program and hook a cable up to it and upload the program. I can also control it from a web page, or a phone app. It's ...

Re: Raspbian

I was thinking about some sort of CNC device (like a plotter). I also have an Arduino that I picked up several years ago. It has "some" advantages over a Pi (analog GPIO pins) but overall a Pi is way more powerful.

Fedora 28

It looks like I haven't been keeping up with these posts. Of course I've been upgrading to every new release as they come out but there really isn't a reason to continue posting. Usually everything is uneventful. Linux is pretty much mainstream and easy these days. :) I haven't been visiting the for...

Raspbian

I picked up a few Raspberry Pi devices a couple of weeks ago and have been playing around with them. These things are friggin' awesome! I ordered all kinds of gadgets to hook up to them and play around. I have 2 of the Zero Ws and 1 3 B+. I modified a power strip with a relay and a Pi Zero and can c...

Sorry I've been MIA - Where I've been...

Been busy lately. My son and I are planning on doing a race clinic this Saturday and getting our race licenses. I am planning a father/son race team for next year. Here are a few pictures of us from a recent weekend at the track: Me: http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/i/track/green.jpg http://voidmain.is...

Re: Happy IPv6 Day!

I figured out what my YouTube problem was today. Well, someone else did actually but if fixed my problem too. Turned out to be an MTU issue. I set "AdvLinkMTU" to 1440 and bingo, everything works speedy over IPv6 now. Here's the list of VARs for OpenWrt's implementation of radvd: http://wiki.openwrt...

Re: eth0 won't start without NM in F16

I use NetworkManager in Fedora 16. :) Of course I've only installed it on Laptops so far and it NetworkManager works well there.

Re: Fedora 12 running on Android

Actually X isn't running on the phone's display. It is only running under the vncserver in everything mentioned in this thread but if GNOME3 runs under the vncserver (and I assume it would) then it should run on the phone.
