Skip to comments.Freeping on a 35 dollar Linux computer :-)
Posted on 06/24/2012 12:53:15 PM PDT by Bobalu
Just got my 35 dollar Raspberry Pi Debian Linux computer and thought I'd show fellow freepers how to get on the web and freep on the cheap. It's a Linux setup so it's pretty secure compared to Windows. I'm installing a web server on it now (Apache) and trying to get a cheap USB wifi dongle to work so I can disconnect the ethernet cable...the less cables the better!
Thanks! I and a few other FReepers will love this!
I’ve been following the progress with the Raspberry Pi project for some time now. A wonderful idea. Looks like the perfect web browser - media server solution.
Question: is there any progress on the packaging front? When will I be able to buy a full packaged RP?
You might want to get your money back. Every time I click on your post I get a “Service Temporarily Unavailable” message.
Yes, the first page I tried to bring up on the PI was FR and I got that error message! I thought at first it was the PI but FR is acting flakey today for some reason.
I’m far from an expert on The Pi having only been using it for about an hour here. There is a lot of info on the web though so just do a quick google.
Adafruit has a really nice clear case for the Pi, her stuff is always worth the money! You can see the 15 dollar case at this link. (I ordered one myself but it’s on backorder)
What are you using for input? Are you using a usb hub? I can’t access YouTube easily because I’m on my Edgejr tablet at the moment.
Got a link to a specs page?
I got distracted by the Barbara Eden videos you posted.
Don't forget to initialize the registers...
Watching your youtube video I believe something is wrong with it. I don’t see a 503 error displayed.
Great. Now we know who is causing all the 503s today.
I have a 7-port USB powered hub plugged in. Then there is a USB keyboard, USB mouse and a half watt Alfa USB wifi dongle...all plugged into the hub.
Please post the link, I can’t find the BE vids!
Yep, 3 clips. Two from an old TV movie called “The Woman Hunter” (I’m pretty much the only person with an HD copy)
And the one with her and Phil Spector.
Oh, and 1 more, a clip from “The Brass Bottle”
This is the film that led to the “I Dream Of Jeannie”
