I would like to run a headless machine to perform some basic automation and statistical generation (e.g. generating netstats, uploading to pvoutput.org), as well as any other trivial batch jobs that may spring up. As the RaspPi has been designed…
I have been writing programs for my Raspberry Pi (running Raspbian) for a few weeks now and would like to make sure I protect the work I have done. How can I backup the files I have created? Can I simply plug the SD card into my Windows (XP or 7)…
I have followed (any one of hundreds) tutorial, and it does not work. How do I set up networking/WiFi/static IP address on the Raspberry Pi? After the Foundation introduced the dhcpcd networking system to Raspbian in May 2015 there were hundreds…
I'm not all that keen to buy a USB hard disk, but I'm aware that SD cards aren't suitable for many repetitions of reading and writing. Are there any steps I can take to extend the life of my SD card while it's being used by my Raspberry Pi?
I need to SSH my Pi over wifi but because it is a model A board (using a usb hub is not possible - ever) and I have no ethernet, i can't configure the Pi to connect to my secured wifi network. I want to have the SD card plugged into my laptop and I…
When using the RPi.GPIO library in Python you have to call import RPi.GPIO as GPIO and then GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD) or GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) What is the difference between these two options?
Has anyone successfully set up their Pi to run on solar power? If so, what would be the cheapest way to sensibly and reliably achieve this, using a combination of solar cells / batteries / voltage regulators? Is it a case of just building panels…
I wish to reformat my SD card to use normally again (it currently has one 78 MB FAT32 partition and one 3.9 GB Linux partition). How do I do this (on Windows/Mac/*nix)?
