Since a cople of weeks I own a Raspberry Pi. It's a nice toy. On one SD I installed XBMC. The other one has Raspbian. It took some time for me to get the Realtek 8192 USB WLAN stick to work. Now everything works fine.
 
Unfortunately I just got a kernel panic when I restarted the Pi. It's because I unplugged the power cable to restart the Pi quickly. Until now that's the way I did it until now and it worked fine. Even this tiny raspberry should be shut down the controlled way. Actually this was no big deal to recover: I plugged the SD card into a crad reader, connected it on my linux labtop and ran fsck on both partitions. Then my Pi started successfully again. 
 
 

cron usually runs on Linux per default. Unfortunately my script didn't run which I added to the crontab on raspxbmc.  That's because cron is not enabled on raspbxbmc per default. The following link explains in detail how to activate cron on xbmc.  Then everything works like a charme.

 
 

I backup my xbmc config on my raspberry pi with Linux and rsync.

On windows it's unfortunately not that easy. That's why I describe in the following paragraph how to create a backup on windows and how to restore a previous backup. In addition I provide two windows cmd files which execute the commands in sequence and make the backup and restore much easier. Three tools are requiered on windows: putty, pscp und plink which can be downloaded from the putty page. If you kick off the backup command with the at command on windows you will have an actual backup all the time.

raspiBackup code is maintained with git. Initially cvs was used.

1) git changehistory

2) cvs changehistory

 

Die folgende Datei .xbmc/userdata/keymaps/mouse.xml muss erstellt werden und den folgenden Inhalt bekommen:
 
<keymap>   
   <global>
      <mouse>
         <rightclick>leftclick</rightclick>
         <leftclick>rightclick</leftclick>
      </mouse>
   </global>
</keymap>

raspiBackup.sh is also used to store backups on Synology. I don't have a Synology and cannot execute any tests to help on any issues which pop up. That's  why I created this page to allow users of a Synology to share their experiences with Synology and raspiBackup via comments.
