Raspberry Pi credit-card sized computer

  • ^
    powered usb hub yata yun sir.
  • Ay opo powered usb hub po pala yun, di po kasi kaya ng RPi rev B yung external hard drive enclosure, kulang sa power. Kung USB flash drive kaya naman direkta sa RPi.

    Kung RPi B+ naman po eh kaya na yung ext hdd ng wala na powered usb hub.
  • @ormoreno

    Anong brand and model nung external drive sir?

    1TB seagate expansion 2.5" kaya naman with model B.
  • I wonder kung magkano yung USB powered hub yung gamit nya

    sa akin kasi DLink HUB gamit ko, at mahal sya for a price of 2k+ ata if I remember, I want to buy another one pero tight budget pa ako and I did a work around using a cheapo CDRKING 7Port USB Hub with adapter, but hey, that adapter is cheapass so dont expect anything to it, it cant even spinup a USB HDD or Powerup the Pi. Pero yung target ko lang talaga sa kanya is yung barrel socket nya which is very rare na makikita mo mabibili kahit sa raon wala sila ganyang barrel socket. Of course with little soldering job here and there and add diode sa USB hub for backfeed protection. Ayun ok na, it works fine now with 3 amps 5v powering up my 2 USB HDD and 2 flashdirves and the raspbery pi itself.
  • Got a dtech 4port powered hub from gilmore. Problem lang was it only came with 1amp adapter. Found a 2 port 3amp adapter and everything works great now.
  • Seagate 500gb with generic enclosure (yung silver aluminum, tig 250-280 ata) from cdr hari. Di talaga kaya eh hehe, pag sinaksak ko yung 2 male sa parehong port ng rev B ko namamatay sya.

    Eto po yung powered hub, binili ko po sa modmypi <click here for link> + shipping (may iba pa akong sinabay) mga nasa 650~700 siguro.

    Malamang meron po nyan locally, di ko lang na-search kay cdr hari.

    Edit:
    unga pala, yung powered usb hub kay modmypi wala din atang backfeed afaik.

  • -HDMI/RCA cable
    for display output, kelangan for initial setup
    mura lang kay cdr hari, 100+?

    I think hindi na kailangan to, Ive setup my pi without monitor by just connecting through SSH, kahit fresh installation, havent tried the NOOBS though, direct image kasi sa akin which is ArchLinux (burning the img file to SDCard), fastboot up lang yung archlinux for about 10seconds ready na yung pi.

    target ko lang kasi is headless lang sya.

    - currently installed

    * miniDLNA
    * rtorrent + rutorrent (need this, it has rss support that downloads animes and west tv shows automagically)
    * transmission-daemon (for seeding purpose)
    * pyload (for direct downloads)
    * znc (irc bouncer, keeps me online on IRC and also can keep IRC downloads on Pi without PC with XDCC scripting for batch downloads)
    * owncloud
    * samba (windows filesharing)
    * ESET Updatre caching (with lighttpd and tomato router for iptables redirection for eset updates server)
    * privoxy + dansguardian (with help of tomato router for transparent proxy settings)
  • ^depends, kung adv knowledge nya sa SSH or malakas google-fu nya, kahit walang display output ok lang. Kung beginner sya baka kelanganin nya. Anyways nanghingi lang din ako ng hdmi sa katrabaho ko. Depende na lang sa diskarte.

    Saan ka po nakakita ng img ng arch-linux? May 4gb ba na img file?
  • ^wait madali lang naman mag SSH ha using putty, you can even start the GUI (aka windows style) sa SSH, tried by myself.

    for arch linux image, makikita mo yan sa archlinux site, although hindi ko rin makita, pero na download ko yan directly sa file server nila, here's the link na lang <click here for link>

    tapos resizing the image is just a few command away, by default kasi 512mb lang yan, so if you have larger sd card you can follow this to resize it. <click here for link>

    edit: just installed webmin perfect for headless administration for archlinux.

  • @ormoreno

    maraming salamat sir !!

    buti kramihan meron na kay hari hehe..

    etong bakasyon pagaralan ko muna kung pano siya gumana..
  • You can also install webmin sa Debian...

    Another tool I use is mc (kung familiar ka sa Norton Commander, it's basically a clone).
  • @polka
    nag-run po ba agad kayo ng "pacman -Syyu" pagka-install ng ArchLinux? Sana hindi ko nainstallan ng kahit anong unneeded updates tong sakin..

    Edit:
    Ok, successfully changed my seedbox from Raspbian to Archlinux.
    Grabe ang hirap, buti nandyan si manong Google XD

    Got samba and transmission working.. So far so good..

  • @all

    hi!

    been a lurker on this thread since 2weeks ago... mostly nabasa ko na halos lahat ng pages...

    kakakuha ko lang ng pi ko kanina... eto installing ng noobs muna to test... pero may isa pa akong sd card dun ko balak gawin ung t*rrentbox ko... based sa mga nabasa ko... transmission and deluge ang mostly ginagamit nyo... ano po ba ang the best? then sa OS ano po ang mas maganda balak ko din gawin ung boot files lang sa sd card to minimize wear and tear...

    thanks guys! :)
  • @cabs_14

    Transmission ginamit ko dahil may remote clients sa Windows and Android.
    Sa OS nag download lang ako latest ng raspbian.

    Meron din yata android client yung deluge not sure.
    Surely may windows client yun.

    Boot files lang sa SD card tapos nakalagay sa portable HDD ko yung OS and downloads.

    Transfer OS to HDD
    <click here for link>
    Raspbian installation, minidlna, samba file sharing and deluge(optional)
    <click here for link>
    if transmission(optional)
    <click here for link>
    Para secure yung transmission access sa internet

    thanks sir! :) sige basa basa muna ako...
  • i'm planning to buy raspberry pi as a media player any advice po?

    ano po ba latest na apps for media player? TIA
  • Raspbmc works for me. Try OpenElec also.

    @cabs

    Learn the command line nang Linux also. Try Arch Linux when you're comfortable playing around in Linux. Ano Raspi nabile mo pala?
  • @Hesh

  • @cabs_14

    Mas newbie friendly gamitin yung nano under ng terminal.

    Okay din mag edit ng config file gamit yung WinSCP from Windows.

    Under ng WinSCP
