V0.2: 8th September 2012 V0.3: 30th November 2012 [Updated with less direct linking to MPICH2 downloads] V0.4: 9th January 2013 [Updated step 33] First steps to get machine up 1. I originally used: Updated 30/11/12: My advice is to to check the downloads page on and use the latest version. 2. You will use the “Write” option to put the image from the disk to your card 3. 4. $ sudo raspi-config 5. $ passwd 6. $ exit 7. 8. $ sudo apt-get update 9.

Raspberry Pi, Python & Arduino After the other night’s wonderfully slow detour into Processing, I thought I’d try the Raspberry Pi’s “native” language of Python to control an Arduino. This worked rather well, though I don’t have a slick GUI for it yet. pyFirmata is the magic that allows an Arduino running Firmata to talk to Python. It’s fairly easy to install under Raspbian: Get the required packages:sudo apt-get install python-serial mercurialDownload the pyFirmata code:hg clone cd pyfirmata sudo python install (If this succeeds, you can delete the pyfirmata folder.) Using pyFirmata is a bit different from other Arduino applications: Here’s some code that uses the same hardware as before, but simply reports the temperature and ramps the brightness of the LED up in 10% steps. The output from this might look like: If this doesn’t work, check the output of dmesg to see if you’re using the right port. which should generate something like Send the author to the moon!

Framboise 314, le Raspberry Pi à la sauce française…. | Le Raspberry Pi, un ordinateur à 35€ ? Je demande à voir ! Spark Linux Tablet Up for Pre-Order, Dev Discusses Economics of Project The upstart Spark Linux tablet is up for pre-order at for a target price tag of 200 euros (about $263 USD). You can indicate how many tablets you’re interested in, and your priority number will ensure you’re among the first to receive yours. The Spark folks are hoping to get a strong sense of device demand before the tablet launches. Developer Aaron Seigo also posted a new blog today discussing the financial aspect of the project. Overall, the idea is to put money that comes in back into the project and to Free Software (especially those around open devices) in general. “Where these funds will be targeted will depend on what needs doing, what needs supporting the most and how successful the products are in the market,” said Siego in the post. Seigo notes that part of that will be investing in partnerships with other people and companies that can create software and technologies that enhance Spark.

RoverPi Bienvenue sur le projet Rover Pi. Le but de ce projet, hors le simple fait de s'amuser avec les GPIO du Raspberry Pi et d'utiliser celui-ci à des fins robotique.Vous trouverez ici toutes les étapes nécessaires au développement et à la construction de ce robot. Ce projet est en cours de création. With Raspberry Pi and Cotton Candy, Linux Launches a Revolution All the world may be agog over Microsoft's Windows 8 previews this week, but at the same time a quiet revolution is taking place. It's powered by Linux, it costs a fraction of Windows' price, and its first tangible evidence is now available in not just one but two “sweet” forms: Raspberry Pi and Cotton Candy. Like the idea of freedom from the upgrade treadmill and a price that won't put you behind on your rent? Then you may want to check out this new category of computing devices. The Raspberry Pi There's been talk about the ARM-based, education-focused $25 Raspberry Pi for quite some time already, but this week the diminutive device made its official debut. That's been nothing if not exciting to watch, particularly because the launch was so successful that it brought the UK-based project's site to its knees amid overwhelming demand. Premier Farnell and RS Components have both signed up as licensed manufacturers of the devices, the first run of which apparently sold out within an hour or so.

Free GIS Datasets - Categorised List Introducing the mintBox In association with CompuLab, Linux Mint is proud to present the mintBox. The pro model is recognizable by its ribbed case (its faster performance requires more heat dissipation) We’re passionate about what we do and for our very first Mint device, we wanted something unique, something special and extraordinary. The mintBox is Mint in a box. It’s tiny, it’s silent, it’s extremely versatile and it comes packed with connectivity. The mintBox is the very first branded Mint device About CompuLab CompuLab has been making embedded computer-on-modules for over 15 years. We work with CompuLab on the fit-PC3 to make sure the software tightly fits the hardware and to provide a high level of integration. The Fit-PC3 Basic and the mintBox Pro The mintBox is a CompuLab fit-PC3 unit, with a green retro-lit Linux Mint logo, and 10% of each sale goes towards Linux Mint. About the mintBox The mintBox is amongst the toughest computers on the market. The mintBox features a die-cast solid-metal case Availability

Great Britain GIS Data Portal | McMaster University Library, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada Ordnance Survey is Great Britain's national mapping agency. Ordnance Survey has a variety geospatial datasets available from the website, but only the datatsets listed on the "OpenData" page are available for free download. No account creation is required to access data, but you must provide a functioning email address to which the download links can be sent. For detailed datasets, layers may be divided according to the Great Britain National Grid. Some useful datasets include: Meridian 2: A mid-scale representation of Great Britain, primarily consisting of administrative boundaries and transportation infrastructure. Boundary Line: A 1:10 000 scale boundaries dataset, containing all levels of electoral and administrative boundaries. 1:250 000 Colour Raster: A raster "roadmap" showing all motorways, A and B roads, all cities and towns, and many villages. OS Street View: A very detailed street-level raster, useful as a high resolution backdrop.
