Re: Keyboard repeating characters

Yah, this seems to be getting worse.

Unplugging and plugging back in doesn't seem to work for me.

Frustration level is extremely high. Is it possible that variation in the hardware can make this worse? Its SOOOOO bad for me.

Re: Keyboard repeating characters

Any more info on this? Its so bad that I cant do anything via keyboard, even trying to type "sudo reboot" took over 5 times before I gave up and ssh'd in to reboot. Its incapacitating. I have a powered hub and power is not an issue. I verified that the key repeats happen whether using the powered hu...

Re: where to get proper power supply in Canada

I used my blackberry charger and it seemed to work good. Its rated at 700mA.

I also (and will be from now on) have used a powered USB hub to power my Pi and add peripherals.

You should be able to find either easily (Futureshop, Bestbuy. Walmart, Amazon.ca etc)

If you haven't already, then run Hexxeh's rpi-update (https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update)
DOH! That would be the step I missed.

I will give that a try. Thanks!

Re: New kernel+firmware=wireless keyboard not work

Nope. Its definetly an issue with either the new kernel ot firmware. When I boot from the older card with the older kernel and firmware again, it works just fine (except for sticky keys). But when I boot from my new cards ( both debian and arch) then the keyboard does not work at all ( no key presse...

New kernel+firmware=wireless keyboard not work

I had some issues with my SD cards not booting so it was suggested to update the firmware. It did work on an older card thouggh so i know it works. So I updated those from the newest at github. Now my newer SD cards boot, but the wireless keyboard/track pad combo I have doesn't. Would this be a bug ...

Re: Problem booting - hardware interupt

Dude! That worked!

I copied the elf and kernel image from github over to the cards and they booted.

However my wireless keyboard/track pad unit doesn't work with the new firmware. Arg.

Re: Problem booting - hardware interupt

Darn it! Yep, bad SD cards.

So, 3 out of the 4 cards I tried did not work.

I really hope there is a firmware fix for this.

Problem booting - hardware interupt

I am having issues booting into any image with my cards.

I get something like this:
mmc1 timeout waiting for hardware interrupt
(I think its mmc1, but it might have been mmc0 or 2)
and it just keeps repeating.

This is with a Sandisk Ultra SDHC I 8gb Class 6

Are these cards just not supported?
