Re: Booting from the SD card, but using a USB stick to run t

Be careful when updating the kernel, you also need to copy across the matching modules. rpi-update (http://hexxeh.net/?p=328117855) will do this for you, but if you're doing it by hand, you'll need to remember to do it yourself when updating kernel.img I tried the kernel updater, but my Pi wouldn't...

Re: Keyboard sticks!

I use a wireless keyboard and mousepad combined and occasionally get the stuck keyboard issue. A reboot solves the problem though. I think it is a software issue, as it has only ever done it after I have opened Midori. Mine does it all the time in Debian. Even before I start X it does it. Sometimes...

Re: Keyboard sticks!

My keyboard sticks too (also missing some keystrokes) & only about a third of my mouse clicks register. It's highly frustrating & makes trying to type anything on the Pi near impossible. I think it could be a Debian driver issue for the Logitech unifying receiver in my case. I've just tried using Fe...

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

All of this discussion is exactly why I started this tread.  There still doesn't seem to be good, clear information on what does really work or what to buy, if you want to make sure the SD card works with a Raspberry Pi. An SD card is not just an SD card... It seems that Class 4, full size SD cards...

Re: Name Colour?

If you mean your username for the forum then you don't. username colour means something in phpBB. red = admin, green = mod, black = registered user What does black mean & how do I become registered? you are posting on here so you are already a registered user But my name comes up blue ? :shock:

Fedora ARM

Does anyone know when "Fedora Remix" will be making a return the the "Downloads" page? It was going to be my preferred distro. Having said that, "Debian Squeeze" is not terrible by any means.

Re: Booting from the SD card, but using a USB stick to run t

Yeah, that's probably the easiest way of working around it. It's not ideal, but it shouldn't be an issue once the next versions of the SD card images ship with newer firmware on them to begin with. Thanks. I'll try your update tool & give it another go in a day or 2. I've been a bit quiet on this t...

Re: config.txt

With the command:

"arm_freq=800"

... will the ARM processor be constantly running at 800MHz, or does this set a max clock rate that the chip can reach?
