Re: Automatic halt at certain time

It works for me on latest Raspdian, not waiting for 21:00 just a minute or two ahead of the present time. 52 15 * * * root halt 52 15 * * * root shutdown -h now 52 15 * * * root /sbin/shutdown -h now So if I'd replace the current line with: 02 21 * * * root halt 02 21 * * * root shutdown -h now 02 ...

Re: Automatic halt at certain time

Hi,

I added the following line to my crontab:

Code: Select all

0 21 * * * root /sbin/shutdown -h now
But it does not shut down at 21:00 (9P.M.).

I tested it two days in a row, that's why it took so long for me to reply ;)

Automatic halt at certain time

Hello,

Re: Hang at boot with Raspberry Pi logo

I tried changing the settings, but it doesn't help. :(

Is there anything else I could try?

EDIT:
I replaced start.elf and boot.bin with the ones here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... aster/boot
and it seems to work fine :D

Hang at boot with Raspberry Pi logo

Hi, I've had my Raspberry Pi turned off for about two weeks and today I decided to boot it up. Unfortunately it became stuck while booting. It shows the Raspberry Pi logo, and then freezes. I have tried two different (supported) SD cards, they both used to work perfectly. I also tried two different ...

Re: Hang at boot, configuring network interfaces

Hi,

Re: Hang at boot, configuring network interfaces

Hi,

I am using this power supply: http://dx.com/p/eu-type-mini-usb-micro- ... ones-51909

But for as far as I know, it is only the Raspbian distro that is not working. I have used Debian for about 2 months without any problem.

Hang at boot, configuring network interfaces

Hello, I have downloaded the Raspbian image. But after the second reboot, the bootup process hangs at 'configuring network interfaces...'. It does still respond to unplugging the ethernet cable, because I see the 'link down' and 'link up' messages. Voltage between TP1 & TP2: 4.28V SD card: Integral ...

Re: Password

Hi,

I was able to change/set a root password by typing

Code: Select all

sudo su
(as user 'pi'). Then you are logged in as root. Now set/change the password by typing

Code: Select all

passwd
. That worked for me on the Debian image. Might also work on other Linux distributions.

Good luck!
