Raspberry Pi needs upgrade


[link to this post]
 
My eagerly awaited Raspberry Pi arrived three days ago.

First thing to do was to change the sucurity to allow ssh logins from my other computers. So far, so good, I could now run it in headless mode without using the TV (which was the only device in the house suitable to use as an HDMI monitor).

Then the troubles started. The networking has crashed at least once every day so far. (either with just a PuTTY connection, or trying to run with an X remote desktop or having it running as a webserver with Apache2.).

About 3 hours ago, I read about performing an upgrade.(sudo apt-get upgrade). This stated that 45 packages would be upgraded, so I types 'yes'. Fingers crossed it has not yet crashed with a single permanent PuTTY session from my PC and a very low bandwith Internet website using the Pi's Apache2 webserver connected on my Zen ADSL line. Not tried the X desktop again, yet.

Is this using the stock Debain Pi image?

I'm currently mucking about with Raspbmc on mine - its fab..

When my 6 year old first saw my Pi running on the TV (after I explained it was a computer), he asked: "where do you type?"

Yes - out of the box - 4G SDHC card with "Raspberry Pi OS Installed" from RS Components.

I had only changed the boot.rc file as specified to allow SSH access from my PC ....
.... when it first failed as I tried to run a remote desktop (which did work for about 20 minutes).

With the upgrades, it is still running now with one PuTTY connection and the low bandwidth website. (25 file accesses since the upgrades - including Google looking at the robots.txt file, and going away as requested smile)

Post edited following morning to say that the Pi (with Apache2 at 82 file hits) is stilll running, following the S/W upgrade.

I looked at their website and decided that, as they did not know how to manage their Domain Name Servers properly, then other things might not be done properly. frown

Haha!! Bit harsh! Sam Nazarko is a very good programmer (more so considering he is only 18 years old) - he ported Ubuntu to the 1st gen Apple TV, Crystalbuntu..

No - not seen either - I will look at the magazine.

The Tracker site looks interesting - One in a school just round the corner smile

Yes, probably a bit harsh.

My main reason for staying with Debian is because that is what it came with.

I will change to Risc OS when they get past the current Alpha status released a few days ago. If I had the time, I would probably even go with the Alpha.

When the Pi is more readily available, I will get another (and another? smile)
I like the idea of a such a low cost webserver which costs only £3 a year to run.
And a tiny, silent, RiscOS computer running on a ARM chip - although my Viirtual Acorn computers will easily outperform the Pi.

Yeah - someone I know is playing with the RISC-OS on his Pi. Says its coming along nicely.. The bonus of course with the Pi, is that you can just swap SD cards to play with a new OS.. laugh

Simple, isn't it. The second SD card is ready.
