Regular wiki backups


Here is a lot of important information in this wiki. Do you have regular backups of database, files and configuration?

00:50, 26 August 2019

Yes, everything is backed up nightly.

11:02, 26 August 2019


There is a new page about Espresso and it is also listed in the main page.

However, Espresso is NOT an embedded linux device. This is one of famous esp8266 device but it does not use Linux at all.

I think it is inappropriate to this wiki and I would delete it from the main page. What do you think?

07:24, 2 September 2016

The Espresso page was added by request. The community around elinux is evolving to include much more technology than simply embedded linux. If you don't think that page should be here, I'd suggesting posting to the discussion page attached to the Espresso page and/or contacting the page authors directly. You can see who's worked on that page by looking on the page's history.

Change the link to "Renesas R-Car SILK" to "Renesas R-Car Boards"


could you please change the link to "Renesas R-Car SILK" to "Renesas R-Car Boards" [[R-Car | Renesas R-Car Boards]]? Few boards are described and available.


23:45, 6 May 2015

Sure. Done.

04:56, 7 May 2015

The link still points to Could you please fix?

19:18, 7 May 2015

The link now points to

There is no content at so I assume the link to R-Car is correct.

Let me know if it isn't.

Intel Edison

Please could someone add a link for the Intel Edison to the Hardware Pages?

I made a neat case for the Jetson TK1, and have an even better and cheaper one for the Edison...

and of course tech goodies in progress.


10:49, 18 April 2015

I can't just add a link to the Intel Edison without proposed content specific to that chip. It would look kind of silly if the only Intel Edison content were a link to your products. However, feel free to add a new page named appropriately and categorized with Intel Edison. That way, when or if Intel Edison pages ever get added to the wiki, your content will get picked up by the category.

I agree, don't see Edison ever migrating here, such a silly idea, why would they....


13:21, 19 April 2015

I'd be happy to have Intel Edison chips ducumented on the wiki.

13:27, 19 April 2015

Why did you link to dental floss? Is that an honest mistake?

Link to Renesas SILK board from the Main page

New Add-on Board UPS PIco

Hi, I'm the manufacturer of the UPS PIco and UPiS, Could you please add these boards to the hardware sections

Here below are links to both devices. The UPS PIco is a new device addressed to the B+ and A+. The UPiS is an old device addressed to the B and A. Module.pdf

Thank you in Advance Warmest regards

13:28, 17 December 2014

A better place for your boards would be here:

Please feel free to add them.

13:53, 18 December 2014

Hi, Happy New Year 2015 !! Thank you for your reply. I have added, however I do not know how to add the picture, and probably done something wrong, by adding only the link to the picture. Can you please check it and correct. Thank you in Advance PiMaster

Banana Pi section in Hardware Pages?

Hi, Please could you add a Banana Pi section to the hardware pages? I'd like to start compiling information on Banana Pi resources and community. Thanks.

Here's the logo:

03:47, 3 September 2014


BTW, if you'd like to send me a board, I perhaps could better help support Users.

Add new project to "Hardware Pages"


can someone please add OpenPhoenux to the "Hardware Pages" section (i.e. change it to a 3x3 grid)? I've created the initial content for the project and would like to have it more visible to a broader community, to encourage contributions.

The logo can be found here: Media:OpenPhoenux-1024.png

03:40, 21 April 2014

No problem.

04:33, 21 April 2014


Can you add the 'MIPS Creator CI20' to the hardware pages section as well please.
Image for thumbnail uploaded as File:CI20_square_small.png
Let me know if that is not suitable and I can regenerate.
Presume we can have 'MIPS Creator CI20' as the text linking off to a 'CI20' page?
I have pages ready to put up.
08:52, 6 August 2014


Let me know if you need anything else.

09:38, 6 August 2014

I've uploaded a slightly better picture for the CI20 icon on the main page. Please could it be updated:

05:35, 15 August 2014

Add the Parallella project too, please?

15:03, 25 May 2014


15:28, 25 May 2014

Thanks. Could you use the logo from the Parallella page? The picture of the board doesn't stand out very well.

14:36, 26 May 2014

Check it now, is that the one?

16:42, 26 May 2014

Yes, thanks!

Add new "Yocto" wiki page.

Can you add a link to a "Yocto" page in the "Development Portals". I think Yocto should be there since it can be used on many hardware devices.

Thanks ssinfod

13:24, 7 July 2014

I'm not sure I agree. Yocto is a software project that has it's own extensive wiki. All of the portal and hardware project links on the MainPage are to content internal to If I start putting links to external projects on the MainPage, everyone is going to want to add theirs. However, I'm not opposed to creating a page called External Projects and adding links there. I'd even add an External Projects icon to the MainPage.

06:18, 8 July 2014

I don't want to document yocto itself.. In fact, I would like to document more specific instructions for specific hardware.

Maybe, the way to do it could be to add a yocto section in each hardware devices (that is using yocto)...

What do you think ?

An idea: It would be great if we could search in the wiki pages with multiple selection filters (ex: yocto and Beagle Bone)


10:42, 8 July 2014

The way to organize is to properly categorize pages. Then, if you click on Category:Yocto for example, you'd list all pages within the Yocto category. Believe me, I'd love for this to be the case, but I haven't had the time to review all of the pages and categorize them properly. It's on my todo list though.

I'd had an idea a while ago to provide a form on the front page from which a user could select their board and have the wiki return all of the pages relevant to that board. This is in effect bypassing the selection of the Category as I described above. It requires proper and complete categorization of all of the pages though.

You're welcome to add Yocto sections to any hardware pages though. I'm sure the Yocto and the hardware vendors would be appreciative.

11:23, 8 July 2014

I say this because it is sometimes hard to find information on a subject for a specific board...

10:42, 8 July 2014

You're best bet is to use the search function.

Raspberry Pi - Raspbian Real Time Kernel


I am trying to make Raspbian kernel to support real time and to do that I cloned the latest kernel from raspbian github repository and applied rt patch for 3.10.25-rt23(

Ifollowed this link

I did everything correctly, but somthing goes wrong. When I try to reboot with the new rt-kernel raspbian starts booting, it finally prints the below lines and then stops there. Do you have any idea to solve this, or any recommendation for me ?

11:24, 9 January 2014

Please don't post the same message twice. And please don't post specific questions to the MainPage Discussion page. This question should be on the Discussion page it's related to.

I recommend unplugging your peripherals and rebooting.
