Re: NFS root - totes worth it

Well working... I have no login prompt yet. It's hanging on starting dbus. I am not sure if this has anything todo with NFS or that its another misconfiguration (although I don't think anything changed since I ran it directly from sd). Is there anyway to debug why this is happening? There is hardly...

Re: Pi potentially broke my TV

The Raspberry-Pi can not source current from the TV. If you check the schematics you will find a diode in the HDMI 5V line which prevent this. The 'pi DOES do this. You might work at broadcom, you might know the designers personally, but this simply isn't true. When my 'pi is powered OFF, I can mea...

Have to unplug-and-replug power to fix it, which gets annoying :( I suppose it could be a power issue, I'll have to experim...

Re: NFS root - totes worth it

I've been using NFS root for a number of weeks now. I frequently get kernel panics from the networking driver though. Some stuff from asb(?) sorted this for me. * smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N in /boot/cmdline.txt * vm.min_free_kbytes = 12288 in /etc/sysctl.conf (or even higher I guess...) I haven't had a ...
