Re: Pi 3 Not Starting

See this thread (tells you how to install sysbench, etc): https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=921165#p921165 Did you ...

Re: No login and password :(

When I set up my RPi I didn't get prompted to put in a username and password.
Uncheck "auto login"' (user name is pi and password is whatever you choose, but default is raspberry)

Re: Raspberry Pi as a main computer

I use mine as a desktop. Chromium and YouTube videos are decent, and mp4 movies and videos play well in the pi's built in omxplayer.

I used this thread to get the most out of my pi3 made it fast and snappy. Results will vary though.

Epiphany browser bug

Using epiphany browser, right click "open image" ends up opening the image twice....

Is this a bug? Or is it supposed to open multiple windows for same image?

Re: Help moving from a 2 to a 3 please

Did you have OpenGL enabled? The colored splash screen is GPU related is it not?
