Kernel Sources [SOLVED]

I'm trying to get the kernel sources for the 2013-09-10 release. I know the kernel is 3.6 (the latest kernel is 3.6.11) Does anyone know the correct github 3.6 link?

Thanks

Re: My rant on Pi's

You might also consider buying some Linux magazines which often have project ideas for the Raspberry Pi. The May 2013 edition of Linux Journal might be a good place to start.

Re: Unable to use Raspebrri Pi with Kingston SD10V/8GB SDcar

I've got the same card and I can't get it to work properly either. It seems to be one of the cards that aren't compatible with the RPi. I swapped it out for another (Transcend Class 10, 16GB) and have had no problem since.

Given the uniformity of the 'errored' downloads thought I might try one anyway, and so downloaded the diskimager binaries (ignoring the bug warning) - The exe starts, but neither finds the SD card, nor has a working dropdown. So foiled again. It's unlikely the download from here is the problem...lo...

Re: External HDD connection problem

I believe it has to do with usb limitations on the RPi (I'm not an expert on these things). It's pretty safe to say that the clicks you hear are the drive trying to start up and then not having sufficient current to spin the drive. I seem to recall reading that a sata drive draws 1.2A when starting ...

Normal power up behaviour? Or not?

I finally got my portable USB hdd configured for my RPi, so I connected it with a usb y cable with one connector going to my powered hub and the other to the top usb port on my rev.b RPi. Lo and behold, the RPi powered up (without the 5v adapter connected). Is this normal behaviour?
