I'm beginning to regret buying into the "$5" meme.
The Pi came with the MHDMI>HDMI adapter, the screen came with the VGA>DVI adapter, and the DVI>HDMI adapter was like $2.
A Raspberry Pi Zero with all the basic connections required connections for it to get input, output, and storage.
That's next on my list. I'm thinking I might have to solder on the GPIO header and put the keyboard there, and then get a USB>Ethernet adapter.
I WAS planning on using it as a NAS controller - my current one is a five year old Dell laptop running WinServe2016 which, while still operating relatively normally, no longer has a functional GPU.
Apparently I underestimated how much the thing can actually do.
Yeah that's what I just realized I can't do.
I didn't realize before it arrived that there's no separate power port. I figured I could have the network in one USB port, the HDD in the other, and the keyboard on the GPIO. But nope.
For a nas server get the $50 orange pi plus 2.
Better cpu, more ram, built in sata, and gigabit lan.
Also built in wifi if that's what you prefer.
Is there anything...well, cheaper?
The server itself will be connected to a 10/100 switch so gigabit lan doesn't matter
Don't really want to spend more than $30 or so on this, considering my old server is technically still serving files on my network so I'm not too desperate to change it
pi 1 and 2 owner here....once it does not have Ethernet or wifi its a fucking waste. With the pi1&2 you booth the OS plug in the ethernet cable and SSH into it....install remote desktop and you're good to go.
>Apparently I underestimated how much the thing can actually do.
overestimated. And that's still not right; you purchased something without knowing quite what it is.
You're either misunderstanding what the OP is saying, or misunderstanding what the posts you reply to are saying
>How would I SSH into a computer that doesn't have SSH set up, then?
You also apparently have no idea how to use a computer
>stole all the documentaion from the banana
Get a used pi2 or if you really want android/better lan/separate usb controller get a banana pi.
it is enabled by default you fuqin cunt read your fuqin documentation you cock sucking faggot! Plug in the ethernet cable check your router for the connected ip then connect with putty to port 22 Username: pi Password: raspberry you're welcome you fucking faggot! oh and enjoy your pi -=)
I have some problems to use mine
I'm using hdmi output from rpi, an vga/hdmi converter to connect my vga input monitor.
and I tried to connect my composite output rpi to my RCA input television
but nothing appear on my screens.
I have two adapters and tested with it, one converter, and not the other one
What kind of nas speeds can you get on that? My google search turned up results from 1MB/s to 7-8MB/s. I get 7-10MB/s with a usb hdd attached to my router, so i see no point in a pi nas if a router is faster.
There's a reason why it's cheap ya gook.
See my previous post.
Also, it's $15 + shipping + import duties + charger because it cant charge over usb
Why even bother shilling this chink shit?
>I'm beginning to regret buying into the "$5" meme.
Because it was fucking meant to be used as an overpowered microcontroller with all those GPIO pins not a fucking full fledged computer. So is you're disappointed, great, because that's your own fucking fault for buying something you don't even need.
>overpowered microcontroller with all those GPIO pins
It completely sucks as a microcontroller though.
No real-time units, only basic digital pins and very limited hardware pwm.
Just buy a cheap chinese digikey clone for a dollar for low-level electronics. Just as retard-friendly as the Pi.
WTF man, im a Pi1, 2, A and many other small SoC boards owner and Ethernet is required only for certain tasks... a Pi Zero is SOOO MUCH over hyped, people buy it to be a hipster.
A zero is for these small nice projects you dont need Ethernet for, no output or input unless you only need hdmi for some visual project.
N00bs learn the art of selecting the specific board for its task, there is no allrounder.
