Re: RPi access point using cheap RTL8188 based dongle

Right,

I have managed to get it working now.

The only problem is, I seem to have to restart the uhdcpd service after boot-up to get the HDCP working. Is there a way to automate this re-start after startup (or delay it starting until the end of the boot sequence)?

Thanks again

Re: RPi access point using cheap RTL8188 based dongle

Thanks for the reply Paul The ../ was a typo on the forum post, I was definitely using just one dot in the Pi command line. I am at work at the moment, but will try your suggestions when I get home tonight. As part of my own fault finding I did do a $ dir command and the file install-rtl8188cus was ...

Re: RPi access point using cheap RTL8188 based dongle

Hi there, Thanks for posting this. I am trying to use your script to get my TL-WN725N device to work. It uses the 8188eu drivers, does this matter and if it does, can I use the 8188cus drivers instead? Unfortunately, when I type $ ./install-rtl8188cus.sh (the last command in your blog to run the scr...

Re: (Possible fault?) Pi boots sometimes but not always.

I RMAed my Pi shortly after my post. They sent me a new one and it worked fine. I was using HDMI to DVI, but HDMI to HDMi had the same problem. It is possible to back-power the Pi from the USB ports due to the way the board is wired up, but the instructions specifically say not to do this and it can...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

OK, I have fixed it now, I just typed:

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R root:root /media/storage
then

Code: Select all

sudo chmod -R 777 /media/storage
now I have full access - hopefully this means I will have OpenELEC working within seconds of the new Pi landing on the doormat!

Cheers

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Two things - if your Pi won't arrive for while, you might wanna delay compilation till right before it comes. You might wanna used gparted to just reformat the storage section, but if it's permission issues you might wanna check out what the permissions are try to change them instead. On my card, p...

Re: (Possible fault?) Pi boots sometimes but not always.

I have a similar problem with my Pi which was delivered two days ago from RS. I power it up, and it boots up correctly for about 10 seconds, sometime I get to the end of the boot where you enter your user name and password (using Debian "Squeeze"). I sometime even get passed that and boot into Debia...
