#1 New Radioactive@Home detectors might be coming...

Unread post by scole of TSBT » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:11 pm

The Radioactive@home admin, Krzysztof 'krzyszp' Piszczek, wants to know how many people would be interested in buying new detectors. The cost is estimated to be 30-33 Euros + shipping/handling. How many people would be willing to buy one? I just want to pass along the info about how much serious interest there is in it. Who is interested?

I committed to 5 units. If they have them built and I get 5, I'll have them ship how ever many the UK crowd wants, up to 3 of them, and the rest to me.

Krzysztof Piszczek is getting ready to ship the first batch of detectors. I think he may still be accepting orders. Join the project and PM him...http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/

Or of you want to become a Patreon, he accepts donations. He does a lot for Boinc. I'm sponsoring him a little...https://www.patreon.com/krzyszp

:dance:

It's an NCI app. To run on a raspberry pi (or maybe linux in general) you must configure permission to access USB devices to the boinc user. This worked for me...
As root (sudo....) create a file in the directory /etc/udev/rules.d/ the filename is 50-group.rules, with the following content

Code: Select all

# /etc/udev/rules.d/50-group.rules
SUBSYSTEM!="usb", GOTO="skip_rule"
ACTION=="add", GROUP="plugdev"
LABEL="skip_rule"
This will add a rule that whenever a usb device is added the group for the device-file is set to 'plugdev'. This group already exists on the RPi and the user 'pi' is already a member of that group.
To activate the rule the 'udev' service needs to be restarted

Code: Select all

sudo service udev restart
You can now plug in the detector. If it was already plugged in, unplug, wait, 1 minute, plug back in.

Now we need to add the user 'boinc' to the group 'plugdev'

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -a -G plugdev boinc
