Re: `Cannot Join if Under 13

I hate this law.

Anyway, I believe that under 13's ARE allowed to sign up under this law if you get permission from a parent or guardian, so why don't you make a form that if they input the DoB to be under 13, request a parents email and get them to confirm. I have seen websites do this before.

Re: Installing a .deb?

You could also install gdebi using the command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gdebi
This is a graphical tool (also CLI if you want it) that automatically installs the package and it's dependencies, saving quite a lot of time :D

Re: Use initramfs?

After using rpi-update, I have found that whenever I click or the Pi is doing something, the screen flashes black for about a second. This didn't happen before the firmware update. I have not overclocked my Pi or anything like that. Please help! Do you have anything in config.txt? Are you using a 3...

(use start.elf, or one of the armxxx_start.elf files for a specific memory split)

Running rpi-update will also get it.
And I assume it allows an initramfs file using the parameters mentioned?

Re: Use initramfs?

Dom, there's one big problem with this start.elf I figured out this morning - it wont boot (stops on colorfull booterror screen) when no inittrams is configured (i.e. default config). Can you try latest GitHub version? That has the new tag in. It worked for me on default config. Where is the GitHub...

My kernel appears not to. What kernel do you use that allows it?

Use initramfs?

Hello! I am currently trying to use Plymouth on my Pi so I can have a Epic Splash Screen of Epicness! (r) (tm). However Plymouth requires that I use an initramfs. How can I provide the Pi this? I have heard you can patch it into the kernel however this isn't an option for me as I may constantly upda...
