Re: SMTP Mail Server Help

Hi All,
I too struggled with all the above but finally what made it work for me is adding the following line in the /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf at the end of all the above:
AuthLogin=Yes
Hope this helps some one like me.

Re: usb audio works only after reinserting after boot

Update: After help from another thread (ALSA on Raspbian) I figured out that the USB sound card works OK with only the keyboard connected. It does not work at boot time if a USB hub to which a keyboard and mouse are connected. Problem seems to be with the usb stack of the OS or something to do with ...

Re: ALSA on Raspbian

Ok so I didn't understand you at first. Could you test this when everything except soundcard is disconnected from USB (including USB hub)? Ideally, you should use SSH for this. But if this is a problem, you can try connecting keyboard after everything has finished booting. I did that. But the probl...

Re: ALSA on Raspbian

It shouldn't matter if ALSA is already loaded or not when USB device is detected. And if I understand your situation correctly, the card works OK without unplugging after full power cycle, right? No. The USB sound card works only when I physically remove(unplug) it from the usb socket ( I am using ...

Re: ALSA on Raspbian

Update: I monitored the supply to the USB card during power up and found it raise to 5V in 10ms as clean ramp. I feel this should be good enough to initialize the card? I took a dump of system messages using dmesg and here it is: [ 0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpu [ 0.000000] Linux version 3...

Re: ALSA on Raspbian

@kadamski. Now that you have given me some lead , I will try and cycle the power to the USB sound card through a relay operated from GPIO after boot. I will also try to get hold of some other sound card and see if it behaves the same way. Thank you for your prompt response.

Re: ALSA on Raspbian

Exactly. It works fine after reinserting the USB sound card.
This problem is preventing me from going ahead with my project which requires that my application should run unattended. I am stuck with this problem for the last 2 weeks.

usb audio works only after reinserting after boot

Hello, I am using a generic USB sound card (Quantum). The card is detected correctly on boot and aplay -l shows it. But when I try to play a .wav file aplay -D plughw:1,0 WELCOME.wav it takes a while and prints out a lot of data about the file and one of the lines is aplay: set_params:1145: unable t...

Re: playing .mp4 files with hello_video

It looks like there is a bug introduced into the version of omxplayer that is in wheezy raspbian in that it prematurely terminates the playing of short videos. If you have a previous version of omxplayer you will probably find that your file plays OK but cannot be paused as its a short file. I trie...
