Re: Can't get my new Raspberry Pi to boot

DO NOT do 'dist-upgrade You keep saying this, but I don't understand why. Have you had a bad experience of dist-upgrade on another system? On Raspbian it should be fine to run it instead of plain upgrade. It is nothing like the rpi-update (there is no "raspi-update" command). opps. i meant 'rpi". Y...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3: Extreme Passive Cooling

At the end of all of this, my Pi went from thermally throttling at 82c, to never going above 37c even at max load, without need of a fan! Well worth the effort. What does "max load" mean? Actually test it by really putting a full cpu load on the Pi (100% all cores), then report your temps ;) SO YOU...

Make sure it is set for unlimited, other than that two things determine the speed: edit/preferences/bandwidth/ (upload & download " -1 " = unlimited ) 1. How many seeders and their broadband upload speeds. If the torrent has only a handful (or none) then it will take forever. Find a torrent with lot...

No. HDMI or DVI. VGA requires a special component to work. Try your HDTV via HDMI instead.

That is what you get when you buy a slow as molasses Pi2. What were you expecting? :shock:
