True... Still, it's a fairly cheap part if you need all of what its components.

Rasberry Pi

([msg=69329]see Rasberry Pi[/msg])

Anyone heard of the new rasberry pi computer recently released in the UK? It's a fully functioning computer that only consists of a circuit board the size of a credit card and costs from 25$ to 35$ (USD). It comes with a 700 mHz processor and 256 mb RAM. It's easy to configure it to run as a server 24/7.

What do you guys think of it?

This thing has been around for quite awhile (in the US), in fact my brother in-law has one running as a full time server for his homework and such, just in case he forgets to bring it to class. Anyway, (according to him) they've downgraded the price of the 35$ one to 25$, or at least they did in the US. Also, I created a thread about this a while back:

Ah sorry, I had a feeling that we've talked about it before, but a few searches for 'rasberry' and 'rasberry pi' didn't bring anything up. Sorry.

That's because there's a 'p' in raspberry, ;)

I feel like I'm missing something pretty important. I bought a RPi and now have nothing to use it for as my main computer does everything I need it to. Guess I should have thought about some more stuff to do with it before buying it! Whoops :oops:

Necroing because I recently did a lot of reading on up these and I'm ready to buy 3-4 of them; and nearly everyone who took interest is still here. Anyone get their hands on one of these yet?

Project idea: Pocket WiFi Mine
Write scripts to automate the process of the hack (aircrack-ng, etc). Alter casing on wireless adapter to also encase raspberry pi. Still want a small antenna. Use a mobile cell charger for power. Idea is to be able to walk around casually and crack wep. wpa/wpa2 handshakes would be stored so I could use dictionaries on them later since that in itself can be a lengthy process. Since I won't need to check the results until later I don't need to go full on cyborg and make a screen attachment for sunglasses and a keyboard attachment on my arm of some sort. Though that would cool too.

I have one, a model B.

Are you mocking my toaster computer? Seriously though, my current PC has the same amount of RAM, and ~3x the processor speed. The raspberry pi wins overall though, because of the speed boost from running linux :D

centip3de wrote:With the limited storage space and the slow CPU speed, I thought it would be a genius idea to mod DamnSmallLinux to run on this machine. The only thing that would need to be done is to make sure it's compatible with the ARM processor. I would love to undertake this project, as I have a love connection with low-level theory and OS modding. <3


I haven't done much with it yet, but modding Damn Small Linux would be AWESOME! It seems as though DSL is for x86, but the RPi is ARM :( Perhaps Tiny Core Linux would be better? See here.

I've also been looking at the RPi port of linux form scratch, PiLFS.

I have 3 gripes about the RPi:

1.) Text is very hard to read on non-HDMI screen. This can be fixed by making all text huge and bold.
2.) Getting wireless is... Hard. You need a wifi dongle, and the cheapest one I found was ~$27, $8 less than the pi :roll: . Once I got the dongle, I plugged it in, and... The Pi freezes. great. I power cycle and try it again. Same thing. Turns out that I need a better power supply or a powered USB hub to use it :( .
3.) If you plug in a USB while the Pi is on, the Pi reboots :( .

All and all, an awesome little computer!
