Updated 01-28-2013 at 06:10 PM by the dsc (fixing some stuff, redirection didn't work that way)

On openbox' rc.xml, in the corresponding section:

    <keybind key="W-z">

<execute>wget -O /dev/null</execute> 
    <keybind key="W-x">
      <action name="Execute">

Aye, aye, My Pi!

Posted 01-28-2013 at 08:45 AM by brianL

Been having tons of fun with my recently acquired Raspberry Pi, and a few ounces of frustration. So far I've got three distros to play with: Raspbian (based on Debian "Wheezy"), that came ready installed on an SD card; Arch Linux Arm, and SlackwareArm, which I've installed on SD myself. It's a bit particular about SD cards, the Pi. Some work, some don't. That was a source of some of the frustration.

Sockets -- A Chat Server with a non-blocking 'select' (i.e., GUI ready)

lqNetDog Addon For Experimenters
