Geeky Linux blog for one the site admins at frambozenbier.org
We’ve been very busy this week…
As some of you may know Liam Fraser is now part of the Frambozenbier team, so we’ve been helping him with some of the work he has been doingfor the Raspberry Pi foundation.
Over the last week or so we have been up every night on Skype working on putting a download queue system and torrent in place for the Debian images that were released this week.
A big thank you also goes out to ZeroHour, webmaster at www.edugeek.net who provided some useful guidance and support.
(He also became a dad this week. Congartulations from all at Frambozenbier.org)
We’re trying to get some 2 page flyers ready as part of the communitiy documentation project we’re running:
Some of the content waiting to be translated can be found here:
I didn’t get any response back from the UK coputer magazine I contacted about running a weekly column
So it looks like that is not going to happen.
If any other magazines or publications out there want a regular Raspberry Pi section please get in touch.
We don’t wany paying for the coulmn, we’re all volunteers here.
Amongst the staff at Frambozenbier.org we’ve got:
- Software developers
- Arduino developers
- Electronics engineers
- School teachers
- School ICT staff
- Graphic designers
So we are pretty self sufficient when it comes to generating “print ready” content.
We’re back working on the site again.
We stopped breifly to work on a small project for the foundation but we should all be creating new articles for the site again from this week.
We’re busy working on another project at the moment (RasPi related), and should have more info next week.
Then we will be back working full time on the site again.
Just had confirmation that we can run a new set of “print ready” tutorials based on the work Russell Davis has already done on his RasPi VM.
Look in the Tutorials > Russell Davis section for the current versions, and keep checking back for the new versions.
Over the next few days we will be speaking to one of the site authors Liam Fraser (of YouTube RasPi Shooter fame) , about one of the projects he is currently working on:
RasPi Card – A cross-platfom tool for creating bootable SD cards for the Raspberry Pi
Check back on the site over the next few days.
We are just working on a new set of tutorials to help users who want to build a RasPi virtual machine to play with.
(For those who are unlucky and dont get one of the first 10,000 units when they go an sale over the next few weeks)
The tutorials will include:
- Building a Linux VM (if you dont already have a Linux machine
- Configuring the Linux VM
- Adding an ARM subsystem and build environment
Keep checking back here over the next few days
Just spoke to a well known UK computing magazine about writing a regular RasPi coulmn and tutorial section.
We will let you know how it goes when we have something else to report
If any of you have any suggestions about what a weekly column should contain then please send them to articles@fram…org
