Re: Source?

The simplest way would be to click on the "Download" tab on that page, and then click the "Download as .tar.gz" button.

Re: Source?

I had similar freezing problems to yours, but they were resolved at some point by a newer Raspbian image. I'm not sure what version was used for the basis of IncrediblePie, though. I've also heard that a dodgy power supply could cause problems like that. You should also check your config.txt to see ...

Re: XBMC for Raspbian wheezy including airplay,nfs,dvdcss...

I'm having the same problem with AirPlay; the Pi shows up in the music app on my iPhone, I can select it, but no sound comes out. On my desktop it makes iTunes show the AirPlay menu, but it doesn't show up in the menu. The image works great otherwise, though.

Re: Constant crashing

I'm extremely pleased to report that the problem appears to have been resolved by switching to the Foundation's new Raspbian image. First I tried putting it on a different (from the previous two) SD card, and I was able to clone the XBMC repo into two different directories on two different terminals...

Everything appears to be in the right place. apt-file is happy, so is update-command-not-found. I'm getting suggestions for packages I haven't installed yet, as expected. It looks like the timestamps on the Contents files are later than the timestamps on the associated Packages files. You might want...

This looks exactly like what is happening to me, except I don't have a serial cable to capture the log with. See here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 5&p=127237

Re: Constant crashing

RaTTuS: I see the same endlessly scrolling error in the console, and I see nothing at all on my SSH sessions, because they become unresponsive the moment the crash happens. When I reboot, I've only got boot messages in /var/log/syslog, nothing else.

Installed rsyslogd. Sadly, still nothing in the logs. I tried taking a picture of the screen but it didn't come out very good. I can only make out a few bits: eth0: kevent 2 may have been dropped ...and at the end of a line a few lines above it (which may be the end of the previous looping message):...

It just blew up on the same way running off the iPad charger, which is rated at 2.1 amps, 5.1 volts... I guess I'll dig out the meter later just to double check, but given the variety of adapters I've tried it on and since I'm unable to find anyone else having what sounds like a similar problem, I'm...

Re: Contents file in repository?

We use: Contents: udebs percomponent allcomponents ..in conf/distributions for our repos, which is the maximal setting and generates an index for the udebs, one per "component" the repo, and then one for the entire repo. That is possibly overkill, though; reprepro's documentation indicates that pre-...

I've got it hooked up to a 1 amp adapter designed to charge an iPad 3. I think it ought to be sufficient...

I can't get my Raspberry Pi to run without crashing for any significant length of time. Under light loads, it seems to do fine, but if I wander off and then come back later, it's often unresponsive. Under moderate loads it crashes pretty quickly. I've been trying to "apt-get build-dep xbmc" tonight ...
