Re: USB HID failing to install on Rasp Pi wheezy since upgra

I did try the quirks, but (only from a blind test (no monitor attached)), it didn't seem to make any difference to the boot up process. Still halting until USB unplugged.

I may try the rpi-update method, but need to backup the SD card first. Something I will hopefully try soon.

Thanks

Re: USB HID failing to install on Rasp Pi wheezy since upgra

Thanks, I've not tried the quirk line yet. I intend to try all this after work tomorrow (whilst my girlfriend is at the gym .. she's never keen on me going near the boiler ever since I thought I could fix a simple thing myself (I had advice from a plumber, but not the right tools!)) So, will try and...

Re: USB HID failing to install on Rasp Pi wheezy since upgra

Many thanks for the advice ... uname -a shows "Linux raspberrypi 3.6.11+ #456 PREEMPT Mon May 20 17:42:15 BST 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux" I'm only guessing that it is based on 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.img .. I installed this SD card on March 17th 2013 ... The grep on syslog shows ... "Jun 1 16:18:08 ra...

USB HID failing to install on Rasp Pi wheezy since upgrade

I recently updated my raspberry pi which runs my home heating system via a USB relay. Since then the machine halts on boot whilst trying to install this USB device, stopping at the Manufacturer message and not showing the timeout until I unplug it. Here is my output from /var/log/messages (You can s...

Re: Wifi Reconnect on drop

Yes, it is likely that the Pi still has the IP address due to DHCP lease. So, it's not going to try and reconnect. I suppose I could use my ping test to reset the lease. Will try that.

Re: Wifi Reconnect on drop

Well, it seems that my IP address lease is just fine. I've written a ping test and the connection has dropped, yet this script has not kicked in. So, it seems that WiFi connectivity is a dirty, unstable area with Raspberry Pi. My system worked fine in development when in 100% wifi spot, but any chan...

Re: Wifi Reconnect on drop

... as I replaced the wifi dongle on my pi late yesterday with a router connected directly through the Ethernet port Yes, that is what I am thinking of doing at some point. My first Pi runs perfectly with ethernet. I am trialling this with a dongle. As would like to keep current setup. But as this ...

Re: Wifi Reconnect on drop

I did write a post, but discovered from the issues page on github what the issue was (although I thought the fix had been imported - but seems not?) .. basically, I was able to run from the command line myself, but was not running correctly when ran from cron ... I had to prefix the ifconfig, ifdown...

usb->rs232 crashes raspbian wheezy

Connected a Current Cost electricity monitor and as soon as it connects, my fresh build self-destructs. I have tried this twice. Tonight, when home, I will try Arch ... but there seems to be something unusual about the raspbian build, although it was very welcome to have the expand to rootfs tools. ...
