Here's a video of Donkey Kong running on my Pi...

#57 Wireless Raspberry Pi?

Posted by brazen on 09 March 2012 - 08:37 AM

I noticed that Eben recently commented on some people's project ideas for the BBC, and pointed people to this page:

This has a list of, amongst other things, USB wireless dongles that people have apparently verified as working with the Pi on the Debian destribution.

Not sure what the relative power consumption is for using a shield rather than USB.

As I understand it, there are a number of Linux distributions that you can use, as long as they work on the ARMv6 architecture.

#2858 Pi webserver repository

Posted by RussoNC on 04 September 2013 - 12:47 AM

Hi ! I made a webserver with my Raspberry pi with the idea of sharing others webservers projects made in a raspberry pi too. 
The idea is simple, the webserver's owner post some basic information about his site like a short description, their location, mail, name's project etc. After sending the form your webserver is displayed as a post and all the users can acces the site only in one click or get into your own description page where a google map is displayed with your location and others informations.


So, here is the link http://www.pirepository.com


The site is in beta mode because there is a lot of work to do but I desided to make it public because I want to see users reactions. 
If you find some bugs or you think I should add or remove something or you only want to give your advice please contact me at contact@pirepository.com


Hope you enjoy my site and see you soon in the forum.


#2588 Useful Linux Commands

Posted by drewibbo on 14 May 2013 - 07:26 AM

So! You have received your Raspberry Pi or other Linux based computer and are now wondering what to do with it… Well don’t fret. I was thinking the same thing when I got mine.

After I had visited the Raspberry Pi website and installed the Debian “Wheezy” Operating System (OS) onto my Class 10 8Gb SD card I was ready to go… Or was I???

Being a hardened Windows user myself, I was a little daunted when faced with command lines. Here are some useful commands that have really helped me.


To Update your Debian “Wheezy” or other Linux OS software…


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


Start the graphical Interface (Linux version of Windows)…



Find the IP (internet protocol) address of your Pi… Next to the wlan0 entry you will see inet addr. This is the IP address of your Pi…

sudo ifconfig


Make a file executable (means you can run it in a terminal window)…

sudo chmod 755 /home/pi/path_to_file/file.sh


Change the current directory…

cd /home/pi/name_of_directory/


Open a file in a text editor…

nano /name_of_folder/name_of_file.txt


Check how much free space you have…

Check how much free space you have…


List directories & files recursively to a .txt file…

ls -1tr -l -R --group-directories-first | grep -v files > filedate.txt


See how long your Pi has been on for…



Search for text in files (recursively)…

grep -ril "TEXT TO FIND" /path/to/search


List all installed programs to a text file…

dpkg --get-selections > installed_progs_04-05-2013.txt


List all directories recursively to a file…

ls -l -R | grep ^d > filedate.txt

#2344 Sexiest PI case EVER?

Posted by BrianGarvey on 01 March 2013 - 03:09 PM

Hey, My name is Brian Garvey, I'm from the West of Ireland. Ive always had a keen interest in mechanical design. I have built up my own prototyping workshop which includes a drilling machine, lathe, a casting centre, and a cnc milling centre.

What is the Raspberry Slice? The Raspberry Slice is a unique and cool little enclosure I designed for use with the Raspberry pi computer.

Please find out more information on my kick-starter:

#2326 'Out of the Box' TV Challenge

Posted by outofthebox on 27 February 2013 - 02:48 AM

Call for participants to a developer meet up in London, 22-24 March 2013

The TV Triangle is pleased to announce the ‘Out of the Box’ TV Challenge, a unique competitive workshop bringing together teams and individuals from the creative and technology communities to rethink the way we watch television.

The convergence of television and the internet, the emergence of smart televisions, smartphones and tablets, and the availability of new open standards are opening up the world of television and enabling new opportunities for fresh thinking, out of the box.

The 'Out of the Box' TV Challenge is designed to allow anyone, from students, home hobbyists and small companies, to teams from within the television, creative and technology industries, to get involved and demonstrate their creative thinking and technical abilities. Over the weekend they will develop and present concepts or prototypes intended to explore what the future television viewing experience could look like.

Individuals or teams are invited to participate. The organisers are particularly keen to involve developers from the Raspberry Pi community. There will be awards and rewards for the winning teams, and the opportunity to network with like-minded developers and industry professionals.

Further information is available on the tvtriangle dot org dot uk web site.

#2138 [Project] Homemade Raspberry Pi Timelapse Dolly

Posted by zag on 03 January 2013 - 01:51 PM

Nice project here to build a moving timelapse camera:

An affordable solution for building a time lapse rig for cameras, using a Raspberry Pi as the controller.Parts are cheap and easy to source, and the results are on par with professional rigs that can cost 10 times as much as this set up.
Please note: I am not an expert in electronics, python or metalwork - all info on this site should be taken as is.

#830 Where have you bought your Raspberry Pi?

Posted by bertie40 on 16 December 2012 - 09:41 AM

I got mine from RS here in the UK.

Since I ordered it, countries have risen and fallen, the continents have shifted a bit and I no longer wear short trousers. Natural erosion has taken its toll and we now have things called microwave ovens and mobile phones. :)

I think you get the gist.

Other suppliers offer significantly shorter delivery times. Why RS take so long is just one of those little mysteries.

I thought there were big supply problems, and, as a main supplier, they would be faster.

Hay Ho.

#72 Raspberry Pi distributors tweak international pricing

Posted by Nick on 15 March 2012 - 07:52 PM

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has provided some pricing updates for the cheap educational computer, making it clear to buyers in various countries what they will have to pay.

A blog post on Tuesday provided updates from the two worldwide distributors of the Raspberry Pi, RS Components and Element 14/Premier Farnell.

RS Components said it had decided to set a single global price and delivery charge, namely £21.60 and £4.95 respectively. The supplier also said that UK VAT would be constant at £5.31 per device.

However, the foundation's Liz Upton added that those in the rest of the EU may have VAT calculated differently, and other local sales and import taxes may be applicable outside the EU instead of VAT.

Meanwhile, Element 14/Premier Farnell provided a grid showing how much would be payable in each country, in local currency. According to the distributor, customers who had already registered their intent to buy and were quoted different prices at the time would only pay the cheaper of the two prices.

#481 New to Raspberrypi

Posted by joshmu on 11 September 2012 - 09:36 AM

Hi everyone,
I'm in the waiting line to get a raspberry pi! Looking forward to it.
Learning programming at the moment and would love to flex my knowledge and see what I can come up with!
While I wait I figure I may as well download the VMWare Image and see what I can get up to on that.
Will let you all know of what I get up to.

#225 Have you received your Raspberry Pi yet?

Posted by bagpuss22 on 27 June 2012 - 10:08 PM


If you are using a faster SD Card, make sure you get the latest release from github...

I have an 8Gbyte, Class 6 micro SD and it would not work with the release on the Raspberry Pi site, so
I had to get the latest release of kernel files and place over the top.

Now works fine :-)
