Re: Bad CRC for downloaded ISO?

Just downloaded and checked it and the CRC on the download page is correct, so it must be your download that's the problem.

You could try to clear caches, use a different browser or use the torrent.

connect a DSLR Camera with HDMI to the B101 HDMI to CSI-2 Bridge (or other Hardware solutions). After this, I will share (not save) the camera screen (Live View) with a android tablet.
Are you sure your camera uses HDMI out to show the LiveView image?

The one thing i dislike about Debian is that it literally takes years for new upstream versions to appear in a Debian release. And then some additional time to show up in Raspian.
Other distros are available.

Re: What governs a packages availability in the raspberrypi repository?

What the OP probably means - and it sometimes puzzles me, too - is that there are packages which have been in Debian for a long time, with no special hardware requirements, but they are omitted in Raspian. Looking at the example that's not what the OP is talking about. AFAICT Hiawatha is *not* pres...

First thing to check is your power supply.
Does the red power LED stay on at all times?

What's the rating of the PSU and are you sure you're using a good quality cable between PSU and Pi?

Re: Raspbian apt-get update Error - repository doesn't support architecture 'armel'

I'm guessing they use true armhf as Debian does. Raspbian was designed specifically to support armhf with the ARM CPU that the Pi 1 used which isn't supported with Debian armhf. I can see that, but why would they tag that specifically with 'For Raspberry Pi' and then giving instructions that could ...

Perhaps the is some ARM or Raspbian specific reason that the package is not available for Raspbian. In which case one could volunteer to fix it.

Re: What governs a packages availability in the raspberrypi repository?

There are 2 repositories involved: Raspbian and RPF (Raspberry Pi Foundation). Basically the Raspbian has all the basic packages and follows Debian. So in essence contents of this repo is determined by the Debian packagers. If you want to know about Raspbian packages I would search for 'debian packa...

Re: Raspbian apt-get update Error - repository doesn't support architecture 'armel'

Think this could be related to the command I ran as part of installing Resilio Sync on my Pi: "sudo dpkg --add-architecture armel". So maybe it's not an issue? Strange setup... they use armhf for Pi2/3 and armel for Pi1. You can get around the whole armel thing by downloading the deb file or a tar ...

If it's a Pi3B: did you check that the output of

If that's OK I would do a test with the latest Raspbian Desktop or Lite and take it from there.
