Re: Defective ethernet > warranty return

Okay I agree it's the Farnell one, thanks!
This one is one of the first pi's, so it's ordered by farnell co.uk.
Now there's a reseller from Farnell for Belgium, I've just sent an email to verify and to inform what's next.

Re: Defective ethernet > warranty return

I know FN is "confusing", i've noticed this a long time before and i'm thinking the FN-one is the RS one,
It are "random" letters that match "FN" I suppose.

Defective ethernet > warranty return

Hello, I have a defective pi. In fact I have 2 pi's, one from Farnell and one from RS. Let's call them the "good" and the "bad" pi ;) I can't say if the bad pi is from RS or Farnell... How to figure it out? I can imagine sending a pi to the wrong company woudn't work. What's not ...

That's nothing new to me, maybe my information wasn't clear. I have another pi, plugged in the SD card... no problem at all.

Data is never inaccessible unless you encrypt it and lose the key. That's the most important How is the removable drive formatted? If it is FAT then there is no ownership actually stored on the disk; the permissions are just faked when the drive is mounted. With the right mount options it will be r...

And it is working great... Only USB 1.1 for ethernet also :(
Can't find a way to force that specific port in USB 1.1, information found but can't find the right "file" on the pi, even with find :(

How the pwm works (in theory)

Hello everyone, I'm used to use fast pwm with avr's, but I can't figure it out how it works on the pi. You have the clock frequency of 19,2 MHz, you use a prescaler of 32 What gives 600 KHz. I suppose this is a counter tick, but what with the range? It doesn't work like what I'm used to, the frequen...

Re: CLOCK REG INFO PLEASE HELP

I don't get it completely.

I think:
You divide 19,2 MHz by a prescaler 32, so you have 600 KHz "tick"
If I use a range that is 600000 I have a timebase from one second?
So if I want half second on, half second off I use 300000 as value, but I can't find what's wrong :cry:
