Re: lose ability to interact when closing X?

@piglet - try another rpi-update, I did one just over an hour ago and now logout from X gets me back to the command line again.

Re: lose ability to interact when closing X?

@clickykbd - thanks for the suggestions, unfortunately my keyboard just doesn't seem to work in X so no mashing of the F# keys gets me another console. It's the second keyboard I've tried along with two mice, two powered hubs and two wi-fi dongles and the combination I have now seems to work fine at...

Re: lose ability to interact when closing X?

No this is deliberate. A "sudo poweroff" (and probably halt) will now reset the board and sleep in bootcode.bin. I guess I don't understand the development methodology being used here, are such decisions discussed or announced anywhere before being rolled out? Do we know if the black screen hang wh...

Re: lose ability to interact when closing X?

Yup. Same here. The same thing happens if you are at a prompt and halt the system. Previously I got the system halted message so I knew when to unplug. Now I get the blank screen. I had thought it was an improvement but now realise from what is being said that it is more likely an indication of the...

Same here, I did an apt-get upgrade and an rpi-update a few days agao and since then logging out of X just gives me a black screen. I can't check a...

Re: X hangs - no mouse, no keyboard

rpi-update is a utility developed by Hexxeh to simplify updating the RPi's firmware. See https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update

Did you mean that Wheezy fixes your problem?

Re: X hangs - no mouse, no keyboard

@jakeblues - you're not alone in having this problem, there was an issue raised on github about a month ago - see https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/29 - it's been reported by numerous people now but it doesn't seem like anything is being done about it. I've tried both Squeeze and Wheezy - ...

Re: startx causes USB devices to fail

- RaTTuS Thanks for the suggestions, as it happened I decided to image a new SD card just in case something had been corrupted so I *had* to go back to using the wired ethernet link to get the necessary firmware etc and there did not seem to be any problems, I could start lxde and the mouse, keyboar...

Can you perhaps explain what that means? I've just tried to include the output from dmesg in a post but the forum would not let me upload it as an attachment and it was too big to go in the post itself.

startx causes USB devices to fail

I've been battling with my Raspberry Pi for a few weeks now, and, after replacing a hub (which was reported on http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals as problematic), a wi-fi dongle (which refused to be recognised even by lsusb) and a keyboard (which just seemed to cause problems when used with a...
