Re: Installing FreeBSD

I have just recently got FreeBSD working on my Pi. I have been using Raspbian Jessie lite (headless) with a TP LINK wifi adapter. The adapter is running flawlessly on that OS. I wanted to get the adapter work on FreeBSD so I can start learning more about it. I only have the Pi as a unix/linux machin...

Re: Colour squares in the corner

Ok, thanks to both of you. I will change it and see what happens. I have it running on a battery pack. 1Amp. Old Pi ran no problems on it, new Pi 2 draws more current. Makes sense. I will switch back to the plug in adaptor, I had to use it to charge the wife's phone.

Colour squares in the corner

I just hooked my rasp pi 2 up straight out of the box. I was using a R Pi prior to this. My desktop is Rasbian Jessie and I get this square colour box in the upper right corner of my monitor. It looks like a mini version of the boot up/ power on colours. I tried another SD with Kalu Linux on it and ...

Re: First boot - no mouse no keyboard

Thanks you everyone for your suggestions. I have not been online in a while. I ended up putting the raspbian on the SD again and it came up right away. What I meant by no mouse and keyboard is that the desktop showed up on the screen (TV) but the mouse and keyboard were unresponsive. Again thank you...

RPi 2 or B+

I am currently using a Raspberry Pi from my school and want to buy one of my own. I am stuck deciding between a B+ and a Pi 2. Other than the 1 GB of ram is there anything else that is different. Any comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Re: First boot - no mouse no keyboard

KLL, It is a working Raspbian desktop, I do have a PC and router within arms reach. Could you point me in the direction of tutorial? I think this is a older RPI - friend bought it two years ago, so probably not a 2B - I will look for the flashing led's, I can't recall, I think it was one red LED and...

Re: First boot - no mouse no keyboard

drgeoff, I meant that my keyboard and mouse are not responding to anything. The mouse is on and has power as the led is illuminated. The keyboard does not respond and there are no leds illuminating (such as caps lock, num lock). I have tried to keyboards, one a standard keyboard and the other a logi...

First boot - no mouse no keyboard

Hello, New to Raspberry Pi. Borrowed a friends. He has never used it and I have gotten it boot up to the desktop. I have no mouse or keyboard on the desktop. My power supply is a phone power bank for cell phones with 1 A output. I have a 2.1 A output but fear that it is too much for the Pi. Any sugg...
