I’ve finally set up a build tool-chain for compiling my commandline programs for Raspberry Pi.
As a consequence of that I can now provide a DC2N4-LC commandline client for Raspberry Pi too :)
What I noticed is that the commandline client for DC2N4-LC has fallen behind in terms of features when compared to the GUI client, so that I will try to close the gap at some point soon!
Unfortunately the shipping estimates I had put together in a previous post are not applicable for international shipping as the “large letter” format can only be used to post documents.
Therefore, I’ve updated my sales page accordingly.
I’ve already commented on the fact that the Tiny C2N Monitor is a spoofing/monitor device intended to follow the C2N wherever it is attached to. Hence I advised it is possible to connect it to a DC2N device as well.
In particular, I’ve been asked a few times whether that’s true for DC2N4-LC. You might be wondering what’s the point of having a graphic monitor if the DC2N4-LC client has already got a graphic monitor within the GUI client. The answer to the latter is simple: the GUI client is not available and probably won’t be available for all OSes and architectures, where the commandline version is likely to be cross-compiled for a number of architectures.
Therefore asking the former question, whether Tiny C2N Monitor can be connected to a DC2N4-LC, has some relevance for those who know they will be primarily using an architecture for which the GUI client is not available.
The answer to such question is: obviously yes! Here’s my test setup showing how that is done in practice:
Tiny C2N Monitor and DC2N4-LC join forces when the DC2N4 commandline client is used
According to the Royal Mail webpage for international shipping the shipping of Tiny C2N Monitor kits and DC2N4-LC devices should be around 3 GBP within Europe and 4 GBP for most of the rest of the world (excluding Australia, New Zealand, and similarly far countries).
Those rates are for standard shipping, i.e. untracked and uninsured shipping only!
Shipping within UK is slightly less than 3 pounds according to the price page for second class mail.
I’ve finally received all components I need for my Tiny C2N Monitor kits and for DC2N4-LC.
I’ll be building a few DC2N4-LC devices during the weekend. By the end of Monday I will try to put together an estimate of the shipping costs to various areas in the world so that I can start confirming orders, take payments, and ship parcels :)
