Richard's Raspberry Pi Adventures
Reading the chapter on sharing folders from other computers from Raspberry Pi Networking Cookbook this morning, I decided to do the opposite: share my Raspberry Pi over my local network with my Mac. Henrik Jachobsen has some easy-to-follow instructions, and there it is, my Raspberry Pi! (I named it Ix as an homage to Ford Prefect of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.) I followed the instructions exactly, except that I used Emacs, of course, and added Samba to the list of software I’ve installed on my Raspberry Pi. Did I mention that I have a list of software I’ve installed on my Raspberry Pi?
This came in for me last week, so I hope to be able to use create a Node.js-based iBeacon in my house using Bleacon and some instructions using Estimote. So far I’m unable to install Bleacon because, I believe, I insist on using the latest available binary for Node.js for Raspberry Pi.
At least the hardware works. It’s just the Node module failing to install. Getting software to work has always been easier than getting hardware to work, so I will persist.
