Re: Symptom: RISC OS not recognising its partition

@trevj.....thanks for taking it up with Liz, I'm the originator of the subject you bumped this from, and it's great to get all the help I can! As I said on the original thread I've never seen RISC OS before and have no idea how to troubleshoot this, for that matter I'm very much a noob on Linux! ;) ...

Re: error on boot

Ive been seeing alot of stuff that seems to lead to the idea that RISC expects a 2GB card,
I'm using a 4GB card.
Now I'm wondering if the other people having this problem are on a 2GB or a 4GB card??

BTW I've looked around, there is nowhere local to me that I can get a 2GB card!

error on boot

Ok, first off understand I've NEVER seen a RISCOS before...ok? So, being the risk taking (no pun intended) soul that I am I immediately re-purposed my original 4GB sd card from raspbian to image RISCOS. Everything went as it should AFAICT, and I happily slung my Pi together and plugged it in, the go...

Re: Removing unnecessary connectors

Ive already pulled the composite vid off mine, takes a little persuasion but it will come out!
Can't say on the audio or USB/ethernet, probably what the other poster said.

Good luck and keep us updated!!

Re: A GUI player for MP3s?

You can always install VLC player as well (even if it is a little overkill for playing music). It takes some seconds to start but after that, it runs very well for music and provides an interface that is familiar and usable to most. :) Cool...can this be done thru apt-get?? or how exactly would we ...

GUI based MP3 players

I did look around, and i did see command line based players, but I'm just not that comfortable with command line to do all that.....are there GUI based MP3 players that I can apt-get???
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!

Manual Overclocking

Well, I'm sure this will seem odd to some, but I've grown tired of turbo mode!!
What is the simplest way to switch the Pi back to manual overclocking??

Many thanks in advance....Wolf :ugeek:

Re: Updated GPU firmware

@dom

In my case here, I havent had ANY corruption on my SD cards......will doing any of these changes
(as far as "init_emmc_clock=100000000" ..ect) affect how my Pi boots or runs??

Dont want to muck it up as its not broken (so to speak!)

The rest of us are wondering why you want to remove it :ugeek: Tell us more !!

This may have already been covered somewhere else, but I can't find it.

While I agree with you on testing and using good equiptment, I tend to dis-agree about the phone charger part of your statement. I'm running my Pi on a 700mA LG phone charger that I've confirmed puts out about 4.9V across TP1-TP2, and I can run full turbo mode without any issues. It seems to me that...

Re: Quake 3 random shutdown

It's not always just about how many mili-amps the supply pushes! I've got a bare minimum/cheap 700mA phone charger running my Pi. I'm currently running maxed turbo, have in the past manually OC'd it up to 1000MHz, and have had NO issues yet. Having said all that, the first phone charger i used (made...
