CirrusLogic/Wolfson Audio Card on Pidora?

I'd like to ask if anyone has gotten the CirrusLogic (Wolfson) audio card working with Pidora on the B+. I recently took delivery on a CirrusLogic audio card. Although CirrusLogic and Element14 advertised the card as being compatible with the Raspberry Pi 2 (which was the reason for my purchase), it...

Re: Serious problem with raspi-update

sorry if i gave you the wrong impression -- nobody's been removing SD cards from a powered-on system.

Re: Serious problem with raspi-update

yes, I put the disk into a linux box and tried to use dd for backup, and dd began to issue errors. the pi has been functioning flawlessly. interestingly, the SD card that i had previously been using in the pi had this problem, so i removed it, and did a clean install onto a brand new SD card. the ne...

Re: Serious problem with raspi-update

thanks for your help. i'm not exactly sure why you referred me to a thread for debugging boot problems, as the pi works just fine. the only problem is when it's SD card is removed to an external box for backup.

yum update wrecks the SD card

I've run into a problem where my SD card seems to have been corrupted through the normal process of updating. Just for reference, I'm not writing to the card a lot -- I've got the system configured so that the SD card is used for boot and OS load, but not for permanent storage (permanent storage is ...

Re: Serious problem with raspi-update

sorry, it seems as if i have mis-spoken. I didn't actually do an rpi-update. I did a regular software update, which seems to have had the same result. not quite sure how to undo what's been done...

Re: Serious problem with raspi-update

I'm having the same problem on a brand new SD card. Worked fine until I did an rpi-update, now the card works fine when I have it in the Pi, but dd backups fail with read errors.

Is there a fix that I can apply to get rid of the problem? I really don't like not being able to do backups.

Re: Problems with X11 in Pidora

edit: the condensed version of this post should read: 'Even in the advent of systemd, "startx" is not obsolete; it just isn't working on Pidora 2014-3.' I guess I need to clarify my response. Pidora is a port of Fedora 20 that unfortunately does not work like Fedora 20. Somewhere along the lines of...

Re: Problems with X11 in Pidora

It wasn't clear to me whether you were providing information or asking a question. I am familiar with the runlevel terminology, and also with the new boot target syntax that uses symlinks to replace runlevel numbers with language equivalents. In case you were asking a question: Runlevel 3 is multi-u...

External USB Drives with Pidora?

Does Pidora support the Raspbian commands "safe_mode_gpio=4" and "max_usb_current=1"?

I have used those commands previously with Raspbian, and I'd like to know if they (or something equivalent) can be used with Pidora, and if so, how to issue the commands.

Thanks.

Re: B+ and max_usb_current

Are the parameters "same_mode_gpio=4" and "max_usb_current=1" something that will only work in Raspbian, or can they be used in Pidora?

Re: Problems with X11 in Pidora

much to my amazement, Pidora will not allow you to startx if the machine has been booted in runlevel3. Specifically, if the user changes the /etc/systemd/system/default.target symlink to refer to /lib/systemd/system/runlevel3.target instead of the runlevel5.target, this causes a failure when startx ...

Re: How to find the current IP address?

Fedora installations are supposed to have net-tools installed by default, but Pidora doesn't include it. It should. Once net-tools is properly installed, the proper way to check the current ip address is to use the ifconfig utility followed by the device name. On the RPi, the device name for the eth...

Problems with X11 in Pidora

I've just installed the 2014-3 version of Pidora and I've run into a problem getting the GUI. My B+ is going to be used primarily in a headless format, though I will need to occasionally hook up a monitor and keyboard if there are problems. to that end, I installed Pidora using an HDMI-to-DVI adapte...
