Re: SD filesystem noob question

If the Mac sees the EXT4 partition as read-only then backing up the SD card to the Mac does not help restore the card very well. What solutions are available?

Re: SD filesystem noob question

Unfortunately the Mac sees the EXT4 partition as read-only. I've tried enabling file sharing on the Mac and accessing the files with wget on the RPi; this seems like it must be possible but I have not had success. What has worked for me is to put the files in DropBox's public folder, get the public ...

Re: SD filesystem noob question

i followed this link http://blog.applegrew.com/2011/12/acces ... lion-10-7/ and now I can see the filesystem in the finder on osx 10.7. It mounts as a separate volume, disk1s2.

I didn't figure out where filesystem info was on the wiki, but I'm OK.

Thanks for your help!

Re: SD filesystem noob question

so the RPi can see both partititons, uses the stuff the PC writes for booting but also creates this EXT system. I will looks at the sourceforge link. Other approaches seem to be a USB stick or trying out the unused USB port on the router the RPi is plugged into. I don't know much about network file ...

SD filesystem noob question

I added apache and can see the default server page. The instructions I followed suggest proceeding with vi to edit the file index.html. It seems to me like I should be able to put the SD card in my Mac and use a GUI editor to modify the file and then reboot on the RPi and see my changes. It seems li...

noob ssh question

I am new to ssh. I connected my raspberry pi to a monitor and an apple keyboard and wheezy works but the Apple keyboard was very spotty, dropping almost as many keystrokes as it read. It didn't seem to work at all when a mouse was plugged in, too. I don't have a powered USB hub on hand and my goal i...

Re: Beginners help required to varify downloaded OS

from http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/verifying_an_image.html 3. Run "/usr/bin/openssl sha1" (without the quotes), then put a space, drag the image file into the command prompt it is no wonder he is frustrated. Why would he know to drag the .zip file when the instruction says to drag the image file?...

Re: How to start using your Raspberry Pi

The title of the topic seems appropriate although the discussion seems to revolve around other issues. I am trying to install the downloaded .img onto the SD card with my mac, following the instructions at http://elinux.org/RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup. It seems like the SD card is either not mounted or i...
