RPiconfig, Config.txt RPiconfig (Redirected from RPi config.txt) As the raspberry PI doesn’t have a conventional BIOS, the various system configuration parameters that would normally be kept and set using the BIOS are now stored on a text file named “config.txt”.The Raspberry Pi config.txt file is read by the GPU before the ARM core is initialised.This file is an optional file on the boot partition. It would normally be accessible as /boot/config.txt from Linux, but from Windows (or OS X) it would be

A simple and good looking case for our Raspberry

  A simple and good looking case for our Raspberry Veröffentlicht am 30 January 2013 von admin — Keine Kommentare ↓ One thing I knew for sure. I was not going to spend 10 euro for a nice and ready case for my raspberry pi. Certainly, I could better spend my money on, hmm let’s say 2 long islands or some fancy ouput capacitors or a P.I.L. Vinyl… So I just got prepared, and I followed what the guy behind Moebius Linux did, you can find his original

Setting Up LIRC on the RaspberryPi Setting Up LIRC on the RaspberryPi JAN 6TH, 2013 | COMMENTS June 8th 2013 Update: I have completed a soldered circuit prototype, complete with a full parts list and high resolution build pictures. Please read Open Source Universal Remote – Parts & Picturse to learn more. March 9th 2013 Update: I have formalized the schematic and parts list that I’m using and have made it available on Upverter. Please read RaspberryPi IR Schematic for LIRC for more details. March 4th Update: I’ve written a follow up post that describes

Controlling LIRC From the Web Controlling LIRC From the Web FEB 23RD, 2013 | COMMENTS In this post I will cover how to create a web interface + API for LIRC, the Linux Infrared Remote Control project. I will be using NodeJS and a RaspberryPi in this post, but the ideas generalize to other languages and hardware. This post will serve as Part 3 of my open source universal remote project posts. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read the first two posts, I suggest checking

Raspberry Pi – Client to upload to Dropbox (for the Surveillance WebCam in the Cloud) Raspberry Pi – Client to upload to Dropbox (for the Surveillance WebCam in the Cloud) Posted on April 4, 2013 by jasmeu As mentioned in the Raspberry Pi – Surveillance WebCam in the Cloud post, the idea is to continously upload the snaphosts in the cloud in order to have them safe and accessible from outside the local network. As there is no official Dropbox client for PI, and as I found no other solution on the web, I wrote my own little dropbox client

Raspberry-Pi / SMS Alarm System Raspberry-Pi / SMS Alarm System Description Here are some information about a little Python Project I’ve made based on a Raspberry-Pi Platform. This is My first Python Project Ever, my code is not super clean, but it works great.   This system send me an SMS and/or Email if my door is open, or if the PIR (passive infrared movement detector) is triggered. This can be easily expanded to 8 or mores zones, or control something else. In my

Gamepad Input in Python

Gamepad Input in Python I want to be able to command my upcoming Quadrotor with a game controller, so I purchased a Gigaware PC Wired Controller for $17 from Radioshack: Quadrotors are usually controlled with two thumbsticks (4 axes): Left Thumbstick Up/Down: Throttle Left Thumbstick Left/Right: Yaw Right Thumbstick Up/Down: Pitch Left Thumbstick Left/Right: Roll This inexpensive controller seems perfect for what I need it for, and there are some buttons I can use for initialization and other things.
