For current versions of the OS, this script is no longer needed as the drivers are included in the distro.

Do you have to throw it away?
or can you just re-format it?
I am waiting for my raspberry pi and was wondering how many sd cards I should buy :?
You just re-image it. No need to reformat unless you want to use it instead as a SDcard for windows.

I setup the interfaces files so that they are located in the /boot directory and symbolically linked back to the original locations. This allows me to make changes using windows when access to the non-boot directory is not accessible. I documented it in http://rpi.tnet.com/project.faqs.winaccessinte...

Look at the pictures above and you can see the slot on the top of the case.

Well... if the script doesn't run.. having it auto-start might actually cause you bigger problems.

Make sure the script you are trying to use works first.

Re: FYI: persistent HDMI bug?

Curious... but you turn the power off on your RPi ? Mine is left on 7x24 as I never know when I will use it. It is used for more than just displaying things on the TV so I use it many times unrelated to TV use.

Re: Re-using SD card?

You don't need to reformat the card first... just re-image over the old image.

The only reason to reformat is if you want to use the card again as a SDCard for Windows use.

Re: Status LED's

The PWR blinking means the 5V power supply is dropping out. Makes sense in that the input voltage from the PSU is 5v not 3.3v. In any case, it means there is power to the unit.

Okay... you can set how much memory is used by using the option gpu_mem=256 This would set aside 1/2 of the 512mb of memory for use by the GPU...

Re: Status LED's

OK = SD card access indicator - Only blinks when read or write to SDCard
PWR = 5V input power present - Always on when there is power

FDX = Ethernet Full Duplex connection
LNK = Ethernet connection present
10M = 100 Mbps Ethernet connection
