XBMC - Raspbian

XBMC - Raspbian
Instructions for building XMBC from source are below, but they will take over 12 hours to compile on the Pi. If this doesn't interest you and you just want a working, binary XBMC package, one is being built and provided by Michael Gorven. It can be installed by following the instructions in his blog post. The following instructions were derived from instructions passed to me from Obsy on the #raspbian IRC channel. These instructions document the steps necessary to build XBMC in Raspbian. These steps are not optimal and need to be refined, but they do result in a working build of XBMC that seems to work well within Raspbian. Build and Install XBMC Start with a Pisces or similar image of Raspbian. Prepare to Run XBMC Comment out the swap line in /etc/fstab by prepending a '#' character. XBMC Configuration Output The following is output from the XBMC configuration command. Related:  RaspberryQuick Start (Raspberry Pi)corestero

PiscesImages - Raspbian The Raspberry Pi Foundation has produced and released their own recommended image of Raspbian. All users are encouraged to download the Foundation image as it is the best supported image within the Raspberry Pi Forums. This "official" Raspbian image can be downloaded directly from the Raspberry Pi Website Downloads Page . Mike Thompson has produced a publicly available SD image of Raspbian that is bootable on Raspberry Pi hardware. This is called the "pisces" image as that is what Mike's Raspberry Pi system is named on his LAN. This image is a little newer and includes a more complete installation of Raspbian and LXDE than the more minimal Hexxeh image. Download the R3 Image The 449 MB R3 image can be downloaded from this link or torrent . Once booted, log into one of the two existing accounts: root raspbian Image Install To install the image file, you will need to unzip it and write it to a suitable 4G or larger SD card using the UNIX tool dd .

Dropbox on Raspberry Pi via SSHFS This tutorial will demonstrate how to mount Dropbox (or any filesystem) over the network on the Raspberry Pi using SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem). For this procedure to work for your Dropbox share, you will need another machine somewhere that is running Dropbox, and is accessible to the Raspberry Pi via SSH. Note: The following is not actually specific to the Raspberry Pi, nor to Dropbox. The tutorial generalizes for other systems and architectures that are not officially supported by Dropbox, as well as for mounting of other non Dropbox shares over the network. How it works SSH is a secure protocol for communicating between machines. On the local computer where the SSHFS is mounted, the implementation makes use of the FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) kernel module. Installation (remote host) The first step is to configure the remote host that the Raspberry Pi will connect to via SSH. Next, the remote machine will need to be running OpenSSH server. sudo apt-get install openssh-server

[Solved] USB Interface (Android VNC) Hello, I'm trying to set up my nexus 7 tablet as a screen, keyboard and mouse for my raspberry pi using USB tethering. Initially the tablet didn't have usb tethering so I flashed a ROM from here: Then I installed this: Next, I downloaded x11vnc on the RPi and configured it to autostart. Code: Select all sudo ifconfig usb0 I run this command through SSH in my computer. When I do all this I can access the RPi through my N7 however I want to know how to persistently configure the usb0 interface to avoid the need of using my computer to set the IP. Is it possible to set some kind of static ip or would it be better to make a udev script that runs every time I connect my tablet? Thanks a lot.

Treating a RaspberryPi as just another Windows machine | cymplecy (simplesi) This guide has been superceded by the AutoInstall version but it still shows the process needed to go through :) To access the files on your RPi over your network and to stop worrying about finding its IP address, you need to install and configure something called Samba – but don’t worry- I’ve made this easy peasy 1st off -need to run LXTerminal and then type (Answer any question it asks with OK or Y) Once its installed – we need another thing installing – so do this And then run this command You will be asked to enter the pi password twice – use raspberry as the password. Finally use And copy and paste the following to replace the existing file contents Save the file in nano (Ctrl-O, answer Y and then Ctrl-X) and finally issue the following command Your RPi should now be set to be reffered to as \\mypi from any windows machine on the same network.

Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters I have produced a script to allow automatic installation of the drivers for Realtek RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters and a document giving instructions on how to use it. The script is rather crude but does the job pretty well I think. All you have to do is edit the script to add your own SSID and PASSWORD and then run a single command. The rest is done automatically by the script. I use a Micronet Wireless LAN USB Adapter Model No: SP907NS which uses the Realtek RTL8188CUS device. Wifi adapters I've found using this chip are: I have only tried it with my device which work a treate. The instructions are available at: and the script at The nice thing about this installation is that you do not need an internet connection to your Pi to install the wifi drivers. If you try it let me know how you get on and which wifi adapter you are using. Simplicity is a prerequisite for reliability.

Contrôler son bureau à distance avec VNC sur le Raspberry pi Dans cet article nous allons voir comment télécommander son Raspberry pi à distance grâce à VNC (Virtual Network Connection), pour que cela fonctionne il faut que vous ayez suivi le tutoriel sur SSH et donc que vous puissiez vous connecter en SSH à votre Raspberry pi. La différence entre SSH et VNC est que SSH ne gère pas d’interface graphique il ne vous permet que d’exécuter des commandes dans le terminal, contrairement à VNC qui va vous donner la possibilité de contrôler votre Raspberry pi de manière graphique avec la souris et le clavier. Nous allons donc commencer par installer un serveur VNC, il en existe plusieurs, mais celui que je vous propose est tightvnc. Pour l’installer connecter vous en SSH au Raspberry pi et faites ces deux commandes sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tightvncserver Une fois que tightvnc est installé il faudra faire la commande vncserver :1 Si vous recevez un message d’avertissement cliquer sur continuer. Le bureau de votre Raspberry pi devrait apparaitre.

50 Things Everyone Should Know - StumbleUpon by Mark and Angel Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life. To be self-reliant one must master a basic set of skills, more or less making them a jack of all trades. Contrary to what you may have learned in school, a jack of all trades is far more equipped to deal with life than a specialized master of only one. While not totally comprehensive , here is a list of 50 things everyone should know how to do. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23.

3 Ways to Display Your Raspberry Pi On a Monitor Or TV Back in the 1980s and 1990s, home computers didn’t rely on dedicated monitors to display operating systems, applications and games. In those days, things were far simpler. Instead of paying extra for a monitor, the majority of home computer and console owners were happy to use their televisions. For some, the situation hasn’t changed all that much, with games consoles often connected to the family TV. If you think about it though, the option to connect to different types of display unit is pretty flexible. What The Developers Say… When I spoke to Raspberry Pi Foundation co-founder Eben Upton recently, he explained that the stripped down computer was borne from the spirit of the 8-bit era. “It’s a very cheap Linux PC, device in the spirit of the 1980s, a device which turns your TV into a computer, plug in to TV, plug a mouse and a keyboard in, give it some power and some kind of storage, an operating system and you’ve got a PC.” It’s Got HDMI!
