Re: RPI Rev 2 Board

Perry Chamberlain <canoeman@...>
 

Adafruits linux disro for the pi has this blurb about their version of wheezy.

"Our distro is based on "Wheezy" but comes with hardware SPII2Cone wire, and WiFi support for our wifi adapters. It also has some things to make overall hacking easier such sshd on startup (with key generation on first boot) and  Bonjour (so you can simply ssh raspberrypi.local from any computer on the local network)"

Adafruit's own linux flavor Occidentalis

perryc <canoeman@...>
 

Adafruit has a altered version of wheezy, called occidentalis ( latin for black raspberry).
It gives wifi dongle drivers, etc and scripts to use i2c and other hardware, sensor devices that can connect to her selection of raspberrry pi sheilds and accesories.
Check them out at Adafruit.com.
Pretty neat site.

I am running Rasbian Wheezy also and have Xarchiver. I did not know that it was an unzip type program. I will give it a try and do some reading. I will get back to you....especially if I have some success.

Hello Danny,
    Thank you for your help.  Without the D-LINK-131
plugged in a USB port, I plugged in a cable to the network adapter of my Rasp Pi
and connected to the internet.   I went to the D-Link website and
downloaded the Linux driver for the     DWA-131
adapter.  Now I have the driver 
“dwa131_linux_drivers_100.tar.gz�  in the   
/home/pi/downloads   directory on my Rasp Pi.   I am not
sure how to proceed with this (tar.gz) file.   I think it has to be
decompressed and then install.   Can you or anybody else explain how
to do this.   Also .....does it have to be in a certain
directory?
Thank you
Don

Hi Don
In
the setup guide it says to install the drivers before you plug in the adaptor
but the included drivers are for windows or MAC you have to go to D-Link's web
site to get the Linux drives. I wen't and downloaded the drivers but I think the
instalation instructions assumes the user has more Linux
experence
than I have. I opened wicd and it was able to see my wirless router but when I
clicked connect it failed. Also when I logged into the router it sees the
Raspberry an has given it an I.P address. There is a help section on the company
web site that says to push the button on the end of the adaptor then push the
wps button on the router but I haven't tryed that yet if that dosen't work I
will contact the help center to see if they can help me get the drivers
installed. If one of us gets it working we should write it up and post it to the
files section.

Hello Danny
No I have not contacted D-Link support. The information that
came with the adapter only had information on how to setup with Window or Apple,
I figure if they had a fix for Linux, it would have been included in their
literature. I also have installed wicd but do not know how to proceed. Nothing
happens when I plug it into a USB port other than it flashing on and off! I know
that the Pi knows it there because when I run lsusb, the system sees it. Good
luck and let me know if you have any success.

Is there a way to cross-compile it in Ubuntu or other distro? I wouldn't
expect the Pi to come with the libs etc. needed. Besides which it would
go much faster on a laptop or desktop. I've heard there is but don't
remember where.

Untarring (tar is the Unix/Linux equivalent of a zip file) -- is not what's going to trip up folks.  This file contains source code to compile, firmware to put in the right place in the file system, activating services, and so forth.

Remember, the Pi is not a "consumer" desktop that comes with everything already built and integrated, so users would be well advised to use the verified peripherals list and pick what you need from there, unless you are prepared to put in the time to understand building things from source, editing, debugging, etc. 

If you can't get what you need in a pre-built package (via apt-get or similar), this is going to be a common situation. 

It's a great learning experience and Google can be your best friend.  Taking the time to explain this step-by-step can be very consuming.  Many of us are willing to help with specific areas, just be sure you have done your own research and homework.

General questions about RasPi, and various programs to run under it are probably better served in the larger RasPi community (WiKis, blogs, forums, etc.) -- this one will be more valuable for Ham Radio related software and Ham Radio specific interfacing.

Hi Don
In the setup guide it says to install the drivers before you plug in the adaptor but the included drivers are for windows or MAC you have to go to D-Link's web site to get the Linux drives. I wen't and downloaded the drivers but I think the instalation instructions assumes the user has more Linux
experence than I have. I opened wicd and it was able to see my wirless router but when I clicked connect it failed. Also when I logged into the router it sees the Raspberry an has given it an I.P address. There is a help section on the company web site that says to push the button on the end of the adaptor then push the wps button on the router but I haven't tryed that yet if that dosen't work I will contact the help center to see if they can help me get the drivers installed. If one of us gets it working we should write it up and post it to the files section.

Hello Danny
No I have not contacted D-Link support. The information that came with the adapter only had information on how to setup with Window or Apple, I figure if they had a fix for Linux, it would have been included in their literature. I also have installed wicd but do not know how to proceed. Nothing happens when I plug it into a USB port other than it flashing on and off! I know that the Pi knows it there because when I run lsusb, the system sees it. Good luck and let me know if you have any success.

Hi, I am Andy G0SFJ, have a Pi - computing isn't really my line, wasn't too impressed by the Pi really, and am now looking at using it for ham radio applications only:

* tnc / aprs
*cw keyer
*gpredict (could not load it!)
* sound card and then some modulation/demod.


I think it is underpowered and I found the Composite video unreadable on a small tv set when I was messing around with Python, so am now going to use DVI.

BTW there are free Python courses at Coursera and elsewhere.

Also I hope to use a wireless access point from D-Link.

I am afraid I get lost with Lunix-speak and I hope towards an easy step-by-step soluton to installing these applications.

I have also just bought an rs232 interface off ebay (For the tnc) and understand that the vendor is interested in a top-ten of ham radio pcb add-ons.

All in all I don't think I'll be contributing much, but reading and hopefully learning...and asking for help sometimes!

I'm working on the same issue have you contacted D-Link support yet? I installed wicd which is a network manager but it still won't connect I have a few more things to try but if that dosen't work I will be contacting there support center.

I tried both ways.  Seemed to work better when I plugged it in direct.

Hi,

I used a USB to Serial adapter.  I did get it to work sort of.  I was attaching to my Kantronics KPC-3 through minicom.  I could get it to recognize the serial port, but when I slowed it down to 1200 baud, it crashed. (locked up)  I had to log into the unit via SSH and tell it to re-boot to get the unit to recover.  I'm getting a TTL to serial adapter, and I'm going to hook that up to the GPIO ports.  I'm thinking this will be a little cleaner than an adapter.  

I can get it to work on my Ubuntu box with the same cables, using the same software.  So I know it should work.
