Raspberry Pi doesn't start

This weekend I had some time, so I thought "today I will get the weels running with Python". Instead this happened: I followed these instructions directly while connected to my Raspberri Pi: http://forum.plumgeek.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=6575 I ran raspi-config and tried Expand Filesys...

Re: Making pictures and videos with the Spirit rover

I have used the steps from the Raspberry Pi website ( https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/getting-started-with-picamera/worksheet/ ) Python 3 is alread...

Installing WiFi

I would like to use an Internet connection of some kind on the rover. It makes it much easier installing new Python modules I want to use. And since the Ethernet port is blocked by the black frame, I bought an ESP8266 WiFi module. These are not expensive at all. But I can place the ESP8266 in two wa...
