Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

I failed to mention that the time to dump the Debian image on the SD card (with 'dd' on a MacBook Pro w/built-in SD card reader/writer) was a little over three (3) minutes. Not bad at all.

With Arch Linux, it took 3m 10s.

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

<t>Thanks all, for the quick reply's.  I did look for the list on the WiKi before initially posting - I do not know why I couldn't find it, until wolfje pointed me straight to it.<br/> <br/> Even though a class 10 card may not be faster for the RaspberryPi, should a class 10 card work, in general?  ...

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

<t>I am ready to buy a few SD cards (thinking 8GB) for my ordered RaspberryPi.<br/> <br/> I have read several posts/discussions regarding SD card compatibility.  From ALL of the information, it is not clear exactly what is working and what is not.  There was one post (I believe from Liz) to refer to...
