Not booting correctly — ambient temperature?

Hi all, I am having an issue when starting my Pi from the "cold" (19°C / 66°F). I'm experiencing two types of problem states: 1. The power supply is plugged in and the PWR LED turns on, after 8 seconds the OK LED turns on and starts flashing as normal when booting up. Then the LED on the wifi stick ...

Re: Permanent green LED after rpi-update

I seem to have found the problem:

yesterday I edited the /etc/inittab file and commented out the lines for the virtual console tty4 to tty6 and that seems to have caused the problem. After I edited file the back to the original state my Pi booted up just fine.

Re: Permanent green LED after rpi-update

Permanent green LED after rpi-update

Hey,

yesterday I updated my Pi via rpi-update and powered it down with sudo halt. Today I tried to boot up and everything seemed fine, even the light on the usb wifi stick turned on, but then the green LED turned on and it's been like that for the last 45 minutes.
Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: PS3 Controller and the PI

I've tried connecting my Logitech PS3 controller (It uses an extra dongle) to my Pi and using it with XBMC and it moves in the right direction when using the arrow buttons but only a bit and then it stops and jumps back once you let the buttons go.

Is there a special driver that I could install?

Re: Raspcontrol - A Web Control Centre for the Pi

I think Raspcontrol still uses

Code: Select all

cat /proc/cpuinfo 
to get the current arm-frequency so there will probably be an update.

It would also be cool if the new temperature-feature get's integrated into Raspcontrol as well :)

Re: What WIFI device is best for Pi?

Is it one of those Wifi-Sticks that need extra power from another USB-hub or can it run on the Pi's power?

Other than that it seems like a great little thing, and its so cheap too!

The Pi can only boot from SD-Card. But other than that you should be able to use you're old HDD's.
