When we first heard of this little credit card size computer our jaws dropped and we were ready to throw our money into the hands of anyone selling it, of cause we were too late so the first batch slipped by us and we got stuck in the queue that formed as the developers ran into delivery difficulties and CE marking problems but finally it has arrived and what a treat it is
We have been following the development of the credit card size computer called Raspberry PI with great interest and were very happy to hear that the first order is being shipped to customers in the UK as we speak(… or type for that matter).
The little computer was delayed by lack of CE marking but this has been taken care of, and the Raspberry PI foundation now reports that mass production has started, when the rest of us will see any of them is still uncertain but it can’t be too long.
We’re planning on doing a write up about the little sensation and what we intend to use it for but this will have to wait until we get it!
After taking the plunge and getting into the Linux platform using a headless box running Ubuntu 11.04 using the built-in VNC server Vino we upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot earlier this week we encountered a problem, the VNC server did no longer work and this has sett off many topics in Ubuntu/Linux forums around the globe but no one has produced an answer that works, until NOW!
we decided to try to figure this one out without googeling or contacting Ubuntu and the answer was easy… we started by setting the VNC server up like always going into desktop sharing and enabled that, then we did a nmap localhost which showed no open ports… so just for the heck of it we decided to try this and it worked!
open terminal and write the following code: “sudo apt-get remove vino”
and when that’s done simply do “sudo apt-get install vino”
start desktop sharing again and disable and enable it and shazzam! VNC working!
