Re: R Pi 3, no sound through HDMI

Thanks for the replies, all good advice. I did a fresh install of Jessie on a spare card, and confirm HDMI audio works fine out of the box. I think I'm just going to start over with the pi. Edit: 'lsmod' does list the sound module on the non-working installation.

R Pi 3, no sound through HDMI

I've been working on this for a few hours; got a new Raspberry Pi 3, just installed the newest release of Raspian Jessie yesterday, but no sound through HDMI. I've tried adding "hdmi_drive=2" to /boot/config.txt, I've tried using raspi-config to force audio output to HDMI, I've even tried ...

Re: help? Cannot get rpi to boot to console, only X

Yes, that is good to know. (Now I have to decide whether to learn how systemd works, or replace it :)

Re: help? Cannot get rpi to boot to console, only X

Houston, we've found the problem. I found a web page that informed me that release "jessie" no longer uses "init" and the init.d and rcX.d scripts, it has moved on to using "systemd" for boot. From the Wiki article ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systemd : "As an in...

Re: help? Cannot get rpi to boot to console, only X

I was able to solve my problem by uninstalling X (along with gnome* and lxde*) and then reinstalling it, and creating an ~/.xinitrc that just has the line "openbox-session" (and of course a terminal and clock and such listed in ~/.xsession). I still see a number of messages along the line ...

Re: help? Cannot get rpi to boot to console, only X

My account didn't have an .xinitc, and the global one at /etc/X11/xinit/ doesn't seem to be able to interrupt the startup (by modifying it). So I'm looking around at the global Xsession and such. Thanks for the suggestions; it gave me ideas on where else to look in the boot chain (which I am learnin...

help? Cannot get rpi to boot to console, only X

Hello! I'm at the end of my rope trying to get my pi to boot to console by default. I made a system using raspbian-ua-netinst-v1.0.5, if you are familiar with it, I just added the option "release=jessie" to the config file, to use testing instead of wheezy. I did this to try and compile MA...
