Raspberry Pi - run program at start-up

Raspberry Pi - run program at start-up
Anyway, I wanted to get my Raspberry Pi to start no-ip dynamic dns service when it started-up, so I wouldn't have to remember to start it every time it was powered up. For details on how to install no-ip on the Pi, see this post. There are loads of ways of running a command at start-up in Linux but my favoured approach is to create an initialisation script in /etc/init.d and register it using update-rc.d. This way the application is started and stopped automatically when the system boots / shutdowns. Create script in /etc/init.d sudo nano /etc/init.d/NameOfYourScript The following is an example based on starting up the no-ip service [/usr/local/bin/noip], but change the name of the script and the command to start and stop it and it would work for any command. #! Make script executable sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/NameOfYourScript Test starting the program sudo /etc/init.d/NameOfYourScript start Test stopping the program sudo /etc/init.d/NameOfYourScript stop

Silverlight Developer » Blog Archive Bare Metal GPIO on the Raspberry Pi - Silverlight Developer The Raspberry Pi is classically used as a single board computer running Linux but it also offers the possibility of using the board without Linux (known as bare metal development). Add to this the availability of free ARM development tools and we have the opportunity to develop on a high speed ARM processor at a reasonable cost. This post explores the steps necessary to toggle a GPIO pin on the Raspberry Pi by directly accessing the registers without the presence of an operating system.

Auto-connect to wireless nets? lizdainis wrote:pjc123 can you share your script ? autoconnect First of all, don't expect to just copy my scripts and expect them to magically work for your application. You might find it a lot easier to use one of the gui applications like wicd, although I don't know their capabilities.

Windows Installation Windows installation is very simple and works on Windows 2000 / XP, Vista and Seven. First, fetch the Windows installer from this link here and extract the contents to a folder. Next up, run the program called “setup.exe”, you may receive a UAC prompt if running Vista or later. This is because the Raspbmc installer needs to run as an Administrator on your system to write to the SD card at block device level. You will now be presented with an interface such as this: Your SD card should be shown on the list.

Bare-metal Raspberry Pi Programming This book aims to be a guide and reference to low-level programming on the Raspberry Pi. If you are interested in porting an existing operating system, writing a new operating system, or just curious about the gory details of the Raspberry Pi then you've found the right place. The idea is to bring all the bits and pieces that are out there now together into a single place. Topics to be covered include Five Basic Raspberry Pi Projects At $35, the Raspberry Pi is almost an impulse purchase. Once its in your hands, its basic nature calls out for it to be used in some great projects. While its always tempting to jump in and build something completely mindblowing, it pays to start with a few easy projects and learn the system before jumping in to the deep end and experiencing frustration.

Raspberry Pi « Naich's crappy blog These are appendixes from the set of posts about setting up and using a Raspberry Pi. Appendix A: Selecting an IP Address As part of the boot process, your Pi used DHCP to get an IP address from the router. The problem with this is that it is an automated process which is invisible to you unless you log onto your router’s admin page to discover it. If only the Pi and your router know what its IP address is, you don’t know where to log on to your Pi. s Raspberry Pi Lesson 11.
