I have a short attention span

All I get is a white screen with the TFT so I switched to trying to get Qt installed on the pi.

Then I got to the step and error:

sudo apt-get install Qtcreator
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package Qtcreator

The problem was due to case-sensitivity.  The correct command was:

sudo apt-get install qtcreator

They should probably update the page…

OMG I love Raspberry Pi

So I have 2 Raspberry Pis.  These things are just absolutely amazing.

Tonight I spent some time configuring one of them to work with Adafruit’s PiTFT Mini Kit – 320×240 2.8″ TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi.  I soldered up the headers, plugged it in to the Pi and powered it up.  All I had was a white screen.

OK, fine I’ll read the instructions, I thought.  Apparently you need to replace the kernel in order for the screen to work.  I’m updating the software now…
