Character LCD with Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black is a new guide on the learning system:

Looking for a simple way to add a text display to your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project? Consider using a character LCD with the Python character LCD library! These classic displays can show a few lines of text, are inexpensive, and easily readable during the day or night with a bright backlight. You can follow this guide to learn how to connect a character LCD to a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black and control the display from your own Python code!

  1. Bit of a random question, but is there a guide on setting up WIFI on the BBB?

  2. Unfortunately not right now since things have changed a bit with the move to Debian as the default BeagleBone Black operating system. I think your best bet is to ask the folks in the BeagleBone Black google group what the best setup for wifi is on the latest Debian image: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!categories/beagleboard/beaglebone-black

    I also saw this link has some more recent useful info, but might only apply to Ralink devices since it assumes an ra0 device. It’s worth a shot to check out and try using wicd-curses to configure WLAN though: http://inspire.logicsupply.com/2014/07/beaglebone-wifi-installation.html
