You might want to check your power supply. A low voltage output will result in this condition.

Re: How to set time and date

the debian package ntpdate is a deamon that automatically sets the clock from an NTP server. It will keep you pi's clock up to date and automatically sets the clock on each reboot or cold start.

Re: need a good compatiable document package

Chrome Drive has a word processor that you can down load to a .docx file. It's great for the pi since the program is in the cloud and does not take up any space on your pi. You can access it from any computer that has an internet connection. It will require a gmail account to use.

Re: net doesn't come back up after cable reconnected

I don't know anything about raspian, but I do know debian. In debian the ability to get an ip address when plugging in the cable after boot can be configured in /etc/nettwork/interfaces. It should look like this

Code: Select all

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
