Re: Raspi Pi 1 + 2019.img on SD won't boot

Wow, how lucky can you get. Couln't figure it out because it still wasn't letting me ssh in to the Pi from the CL as root. So, i opened a new Tab in the Term and tried ssh as non-root. This worked and i'm now into the Pi. Uf. What a day - six hours later - a working OS on the SD card. Boy, this is n...

Re: Raspi Pi 1 + 2019.img on SD won't boot

This might be for you. In particular if you have successfully ssh-ed into the target host before. Following the discussion here, it appears that the problem, in summary, is KIO not being able to recognize a particular (new?) format of specifying a host in the ssh known_hosts list (a bug which has b...

Re: Raspi Pi 1 + 2019.img on SD won't boot

Well, removed the SD card and looked at the files. Under one of the directories there were what appeared to be files which had not been expanded. So we did a reinstall. Also added the ssh and wpa_supplicant.conf files again. This time the Pi boots and the home Ethernet router can see it. However try...

Took out SD card and placed in PCLinuxOS computer. The card has two partitions: rootfs and 485D-5902. Both have files in them. i'm running a headless install so this is more challenging. i've also tried installing the WiFi antenna which worked in the old install and reconnecting, but all we get is j...
