Raspberry Pi

Here is a list of turorials and projects i've been working on with my Raspberry Pi. Over time you'll notice more and more blogs coming together to explain how to do new and cool things. So keep checking back!

  1. Following the statement:
    sudo dpkg -i omxplayer_0.0.1-arm.deb
    I get the error message
    "..package architecture (armel) does not match system (armhf)"
    Is this because I am using the hard float version of the operating system?

    Regards Trev

  2. I'm not that familiar with Hard Float versions. I used this version of Debian at the time of writing the omxplayer tutorial.


  3. I had the same problem with the 2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian image. Please go to http://omxplayer.sconde.net/ , where you can obtain the download link of the player version which will not give an error. The error message is also explained clearly, by the way. After a half hour, I was able to play a video by running the player. Now I will tackle the issue of displaying subtitles. Good luck to all. :)

  4. Hi Brianhensto ley,

    I'm an electronics Technician in Barcelona and surfing on the net I found your site. Congratulations!
    I'm happy to know that God and family is so important for you. For me too.

    I can see you know quite well electronics and Raspi. So my question is
    have you found a good design to isolate Raspi GPIO inputs and outputs? Searching on the net I've found a lot of confusing information and very poor designs (not yours :-) ). I was planning use a 4n25 opto with a BC337 transistor with common emiter. But actually I'm not sure of the best design. Can you give me a tip?

    Best regards,
