Re: Do I need to format when using etcher?

I am posting this from the chromium browser in my raspbian OS install. That's right, I'm up and running. That article you sent me to about HDMI issues made me try something I had never suspected, namely bypassing my 2-port HDMI switch. I wonder if there are any HDMI switches that actually work with...

Re: Rasp2 running on USB Stick, kernel upgrade problem

Sounds as if you upgraded the copy of Raspbian on the SD card and then failed to copy the upgraded Raspbian to the USB drive? Alternatively if you had run step 2 while running with root on the USB stick then it would have upgraded the Boot related files in the boot partition on the SD card and then ...

Re: Do I need to format when using etcher?

If you are getting the green LED flashing then the Pi is probably booting and then most likely issue is a compatibility problem with the monitor. Have you tried using it with a TV rather than a monitor? What monitor do you have - others may be able to comment on whether they have used that monitor w...

Re: Free ram [solved]

What I find quite interesting in this thread is that nobody has mentioned that the amount of RAM that is allocated to the GPU (and thus not available to user programs) is variable and user configurable. Whether this is relevant to the question the OP was seeking an answer to is not at all clear.

Re: libc.so.6 download

It sounds like you have a generic Linux version for Intel based systems. You will need a version that is specifically built for the ARM processor on the Pi (assuming one even exists).

Could you be more specific about how you mounted the card and found /etc/rc.local? I think I mounted the card but can't find /etc/rc.local
If you have mounted the card, then the location will be of the form /<mountpoint>/etc/rc.local where <mountpoint> is where the card is mounted.

Thanks, but you still need a SD card, and it said something about once you change it to boot from a USB device, you can't change it. I want it to be like if I was swapping SD cards, when you just power it off, take out the SD card, put a different one in and power it back up. But in this case, inst...

As far as I know, omxplayer is the only way to get hardware accelerated Video that uses the GPU and codecs.

There may be other ways of doing this, but I am not aware of them.

VLC does not use hardware acceleration (I.e. the codec via the GPU). You should instead try omxplayer if you want hardware acceleration of video playback.

Re: PI3 not operate

Also, the SD card must be in FAT32 format (and not exFAT). You may have to install a 3rd party tool to do this on a 64GB card as Windows will only allow exFAT for cards over 32GB.

you cannot using the standard OS level format. However there are third party utilities that CAN do this. It should be easy enough to find one appropriate to your system using Google.

Re: BOOT ERROR- unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179

The partitions are as expected. The first (small) one is the boot partition and the rest is the main Linux partition.

I suspect that thete is a problem with the SD card at the hardware level so that part of it is failing to read properly.
