Re: Raspberry Pi


[re: RossMcG] [link to this post]
 
Well I have Arch Linux ARM running on my Raspberry Pi and the nameserver is up and running.

It took a bit of fiddling to give it a static IP address and disable the DHCP but it's all good now.

It seems perfectly suited to this role. I now feel I need another one to 'play' with to see what it does in the way of multimedia smile

Any progress?

I've just got a second Pi, not to play with but to run as another nameserver at a different site.

Patches on Arch Linux seem to be pretty fast with two bash patches yesterday to deal with the shellshock bug.

I'm currently cloning the SD card from my first Pi. The only difference on the second will be IP address and hostname.

No I need to get a third to play with. They're addictive! laugh

I gave up on the Xbox controller and opted for the PS3 controller. Almost everything works fine. Had to put on hold due to other tasks for now.

I am tempted to turn it into a NAS / Media Player / Smart TV unit.

I agree totaly addictive and great for learning smile

Pis are addictive.

Pi one is still running flawlessly 24/7 as a DNS server.

Pi two, which was going to be another DNS server, got hurriedly pressed into service as a DHCP server to meet a specific security requirement at a customer's site.

Pi three is now the second Pi DNS server.

These are all running Arch Linux and are Model B. All very unexciting but stable.

I've just ordered Pi four - my first Model B+ and the first I can really have some fun with.

I'm going to use it as an audio streaming device - along the lines of a Sonos Connect but without the hefty price tag. Now, don't get me wrong. I really like the Sonos system and use one regularly, but can't quite justify the high price when I can build something that will almost certainly end up sounding at least as good.

It's going to connect wirelessly to my network and will run Volumio - a distribution optimized for audio streaming playback.

Once I've got it working I'll be adding a HiFiBerry Digi+ which gives optical and coaxial S/PDIF digital outputs that I can feed into an external DAC with an optical connection.

Then I can have some fun smile
