I’m really enjoy reading about all the fantastic RPi projects out there. Just want to drop another one that me and a few friends have done. With GaddyGaddy as we call our project and site you can via a web interface configure your RPi’s functionallity and then you just install our image and we do all the nitty gritty installations needed to get the application(s) running. You don’t need a screen installed, you can follow the installation on the web interface. If something would fail you can also see this on a simplified log via the same interface.

We can also detect a few know Linux issues and if they occur send out an action to repair the device.

OK this project is not for the Linux geeks, it’s more for everyone that bought an RPi for fun and still keep it in a drawer at home. Let us unleach the RPi power for you 🙂

Among all applications available you will find: Squeezebox, AirPi, Minecraft, Lychee, NAS, Seafile, etc

So if you are interested check in at our web site and let us carry about all the Linux stuff and get you RPi going!!
