If you're talking about the 3.3v on the GPIO pins, I don't think so. In fact, from what I've read, the Adafruit Pi Cobbler Breakout Kit that comes with it connects to the Do Not Connect pins as well. So you have to watch out for that.

Finally succumbed to temptation and ordered a Raspberry Pi last Wednesday (Jan. 16th). I wonder if anyone with sufficient knowhow is willing to write an article/howto about it for SlackDocs? There's a lot of good information in this thread, and scattered over the interwebbythingy, but it would be useful to get it all centralized.

I think people will have most Slackware+Raspberry documentation they need here:
http://www.daves-collective.co.uk/raspi/

It's not a task for the Granny, but hey, the only way to make it easier is by distributing pre built images of the SD card...

But yes, there is some extra information floating around that would be nice to have centralized. Now you "only" have to centralize it or find volunteers to do so :-D

Those who volunteered would win the Blessings of "Bob", and dwell in everlasting Slackness.

Does anybody know of a good piece of wifi hardware to work with a Raspberry Pi? I might try to make a backup home router out of it :-D

You can use anything that is supported by Linux. You may want to either use a powered USB hub, if you have a newer one without the polyfuses you should be OK.

Whoopeee! My Pi has landed!!! Posting from it now, running Raspbian, will sort out Slackwarearm sometime later.

EDIT
Why is it showing a Mac logo?

Are you sure you bought RPi? Perhaps you've bought a cheap iPad?

Mmm, could be. Those cunning devils at Apple, selling their overpriced stuff cheap. Well, they haven't fooled me. I'll send them a cheque for the difference in price.

Just out of curiosity, how is everyone building packages with their RPi? Cross compile? Build in VM?

I'm no expert (that's obvious to everyone ), but I was looking at this article, about cross-compiling a few days ago. Don't know whether it would be any use for Slackwarearm.
