Orange Pis dont have any on-board storage, so theres no where to copy it to. Removing the SD means it wont boot.
I'm assuming you installed the version without the desktop then added it after as above. It should have been installed when you installed lxde.Try re-installing it: sudo apt-get install lightdm
Yeh, I use bucks like that in my projects. They are usually used to step down voltages. So for example 4 AA batteries are 6v which you would run through the buck to bring it down to 5v.The pi not showing anything on screen is a bit worrying but if the leds on then it may be the SD card, are you sure the image burnt ok? also does the monitor indicate that its receiving a signal?
Not sure why it went black, you shouldn't need to restart manually.On the power supply: apple chargers are only 1A. Most Pi's require a 2A supply. I haven't tried powering a Pi via the gpio but from what I've read previously, doing that bypasses the on-board protection. (you may have fried it)So.. get a better power supply (and connect it via the jack socket), then reformat your SD (as it could have been corrupted when you pulled the power).
Hi, I think its only possible using C code as python is too slow, here's what I used:http://uploaded.net/file/se9ffl4l(I had it inserting the data into an sqlite database, so 'ive removed that so it just prints to the terminal)
I would highly recommend installing Armbian.
Hi Kristian,Its difficult to tell without seeing your code (or is it just the code above?), but it looks like for some reason your code is trying to find the libraries in '/var/mail/'.this is unusual because time is a standard library. What OS are you using?
