Re: Post something about yourself here (The Hello Thread)

Hi, everyone. I have been popping into this web site for many years, thinking of someday building a scanner. I am a professor in the northeast part of the US. I have just about 500 books in my office, and whenever I go to a conference or travel, I always bring along a few books related to things I'm...

Re: RaspberryPi 2

I had downloaded the full version (not the small version) myself when I tried it yesterday. Then when that still had trouble, I used the Acid program (since I live in a Mac OS-X world these days) to have it automatically identify and download the experimental CHDK for me; it claimed it did the full ...

Re: RaspberryPi 2

After I posted my last update, it had also occurred to me that probably my version of CHDK was part of the problem. I had CHDK 1.3.0 (the stable version) before, now I have 1.4.0. Things are still not working. E.g. when I tried to run spread web, I got this: pi@raspberrypi: ~ $ spread web spreadsplu...

Still getting the same errors (in the terminal window and on camera screen) with no mouse/keyboard plugged in, doing commands over ssh.

Re: RaspberryPi 2

No, my Pi had an IP address, and I can ssh into it just fine. One other thing was that after each unsuccessful attempt to fire up spread, my keyboard would stop working. Unplugging and re-plugging in the USB plug for the keyboard would make it start working again. This keyboard strangeness doesn't h...

Re: RaspberryPi 2

Jonathon, thanks for your help. I tried your zipfile but still had trouble. At least it would boot up on my RPi2 fine without crashing the kernel. But spread still won't run for me. When I try to run "spread web", I get the errors shown below. If I run the chdkptp program from your RPi image, I can ...

Re: RaspberryPi 2

I have a Raspberry Pi 2 and have been trying to get SpreadPi working, with no luck. It always crashes when booting up. I also tried starting from a stock Raspbian install and getting things working (installing software myself into it), but that has also been very frustrating. I got chdkptp installed...
