Re: Raspberry Pi - a revolution?

I like the little tiny cube one.

They are all (at the moment) too expensive though.

Re: Raspberry Pi - a revolution?

I haven't got my Pi yet, I'm still waiting to be able to order it.

I put an old 4GB SD into my lappy and downloaded "win32diskimager-binary" & "debian6-19-04-2012" via the Pi site, ran the disk image file, selected debian.

A few minutes later the process finished and windows reports the SD as unformatted, so now the long wait.

Re: Raspberry Pi - a revolution?

Windows should not report the SD card as unformatted.

There should be a small (70mb)ish partition on it.

Re: Raspberry Pi - a revolution?

I just put it back in and theres 70mb, with 24 being used by some files.

How are you powering you Pi?

I have a adapter that plugs into the mains for powering USB devices its output says "5.0VDC/1000mA" would that be able to power it or would I need something else?

He's using a Blackberry micro USB mains charger plug (iirc) as the PC USB to micro USB cable wouldn't do the job.....

Excellent I just didn't want you to be dissapointed when you plug it in

I am using Natalies old Blackberry charger. (Which is 750mAh) so yours should be ok.

edit - another thought, if you're going to plug anything other than a keyboard / mouse in best get a powered usb hub too.

Re: Raspberry Pi - a revolution?

It is text but once you login at the prompt (pi then raspberry) just type startx press enter and you'll get the GUI up.

Re: Raspberry Pi - a revolution?

I'm definitely getting there now...

Running chrome browser, I've got open office running just fine too

So what with the cost of the unit, SD card, keyboard, mouse and charger I'v e got my really portable accessible PC that I can take with me to a job.

No more employers telling me an accessible PC is the best part of £9,000

I just wish I had a practical bone in my body so I could make a box for it
