Re: Pi shuts down soon after powering up at random points

Just dropping in to say, that my RS Components power adapter is the cause for my Pi shutting down randomly. The MicroUSB connector is not a perfect fit and even the slightest shaking of the power wire can (or sometimes doesn't) turn off/reboot the Pi. Doesn't happen with my other power supplies, tho...

But to be honest sounds more like a faulty SD card to me.

Re: SD Card boot issues

How did you update the pi's firmware if you can't get the pi to boot? The firmware resides on the SD card, so all you need to do is to overwrite a file. Any suggestions on what to do next? I'm thinking it's time to try another SD Card. Did you take a look here (I think you did); http://elinux.org/R...

Re: Keyboard sticks!

I think it's a software related issue and it's quite annoying. Indeed. I'm using a wireless keyboard that misses keystrokes (usb receiver rated at 100mA). The thing is, that for every key press the receiver blinks once. It blinks once again when the key is released. Now I've noticed that I can pres...

Re: My Raspberry Pi won't boot. Was fine yesterday.

The error could be caused when the kernel is unable to find the root file system. This would mean something is wrong with the SD card, such as corrupted file system. However I don't see any errors in the picture you posted. The root file system seems to be mounted ( VFS: Mounted root (ext4 filesyste...

Re: SanDisk Extreme 8GB report.

The wiki page says on some SanDisk cards "Doesn't work with stock debian6-19-04-2012 image, but does work with freshly compiled kernel".

Sooooo.. I would say there's still some hope. Is compiling your own kernel beyond your skills? Alternatively you could try if the Arch Linux image boots..

Well, you answered it already, really. Arduino is very specific purpose, while Raspberry Pi is very general purpose.

As far as I can tell the debian image doesn't have a root account as a default..?

The default login is username "pi" and password "raspberry".

Did you do any software upgrades? The panic does happen at a point, where the USB probe would usually detect the ethernet connection. Suggest trying to remove ethernet cable too, though I'm doubtful it will be of any use. dmesg snip from a working boot ... Freeing init memory: 124K usb 1-1: New USB ...

Re: SSH login refused from Linux PC

Use something like ssh-keygen -R 192.168.1.5 where 192.168.1.5 is the host you're trying to connect to. Replace as necessary. the -R switch stands for remove . The defined host is removed from your known_hosts file. Alternatively like andyl said, you need to manually remove the offending line in ~/....
