Re: Quake 3 random shutdown

I did have it overclocked with the new firmware but the game wasn't playable. Right now I'm just using the normal speed of 700MHz, in which the game runs fine, but it still crashed while playing.

Quake 3 random shutdown

In playing Quake 3 today I was mid-way through the game when it crashed, and I was brought back to the Pi terminal. Could this be caused by the power supply? I'm using a BlackBerry charger rated at 700mA, the bare recommended minimum. It works for for basic operating tasks but I've never played high...

Re: YouTube on Raspbmc

I'm also having the same issue. I've tried both Youtube and the Wired.com add-on with no success. I've even tried a restart, but still getting the script error when I try to launch both add-ons. The Engadget add-on works fine, but the video is only playing on part of the screen.

Installing Logitech Media Server in Raspbmc

Is there a way to install Logitech Media Server in Raspbmc, and still be able to use the traditional Squeezeplayer remote for iPhone/Android as well as gain remote access to the server interface?

Re: Any online Linux groups out there?

Unfortunately none of those groups exist in my area. I live on an island with a very small Linux user base, if none at all. I don't think the Raspberry Pi has even reached this area yet; I may have the only one. I was hoping this work could be online based so I wouldn't have to physically go to an a...

Bodhi Linux worth a try?

I've been tinkering for a while with Bodhi Linux in a virtual machine. In terms of performance, does Raspbian fare better than other distributions? I think Bodhi ARMHF is still in it's alpha stage, but would love to try it out on the Pi, albeit it's not horribly slow.

No sound after rpi-update

I've encountered an issue where the sound over hdmi breaks when I update the Pi firmware. After copying the arm240_start.elf to start.elf, I run the audio test in /opt/vc/src/hello_pi and get the following error: Outputting audio to hdmi hello_audio.bin: audio.c:122: audioplay_create: Assertion `st-...

Re: rpi-update

The same thing happened to me as well. I made a backup of my previous Wheezy image, so I re-imaged my SD card and ran rpi-update again, which was successful. I would re-image and try again.

So I have to replace the `start.elf` file, but where can I get a replacement? You can find it here: https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware Click on the file you want and download by clicking on the "Raw" button on the right side. Just rename arm240_start.elf to start.elf (or overwrite the old one) ...

Re: rpi-update

I overwrote start.elf with arm240_start.elf using "cp arm240_start.elf start.elf", and rebooted.

Everything booted normally, but when I view the amount of available memory, it says I have 231MB available. I'm confused. It should say 240! :(

Would a micro-SD card inserted in an SD card adapter work with the Pi? I have a higher capacity micro-SD card that I want to use but before I buy an adapter for it I wanted to make sure it would work. Thanks.

I then copy one of the armxxx_start.elf images to start.elf (invariably start.elf is the corrupted file for me). Does this mean that you rename the armxx_start.elf file to start.elf?

Re: Power issues

In looking at the power rating on my keyboard I noticed that it's drawing 1.4A which is more than what my charger can provide. I will be replacing it with a keyboard that uses less power.

Is a 750mA charger good enough to use with a Pi, or should I invest in a 1000mA one?

Thanks for your help!
