Re: SD card problems first time

I would advice you to start with Debian wheezy instead of openelec. At this point wheezy seems to be the easiest and most reliable to use.

This allows you to ensure all your hardware works.

Re: SD card problems first time

When you write the image to sd, two partitions will be created.
The small fat32 one you found and a 2 gb ext4'partition that can only be seen from a Linux box.

I think you can just redo the image creation, but I am unsure.
I don't use windows.

Re: Netgear WNA1100 on Debian

For future reference I recommend installing Debian Wheezy that is currently in beta.
You can find info on it in the Debian subforum.

I use that dongle and it worked right out of the box in wheezy.

Re: What programms work

In general no, the packages you are referring to are build for x86, not arm. Therefor they will not work. That said, most Linux software is open source and can therefor be recompiled to work on a Pi. Quite a few have already been compiled for arm and as time passes many often used will be compiled f...

No. OS X is build for specific hardware.
It will not work on a pi.

Google hackintosh for info on OS X on non macs.

Re: No config.txt in boot folder?

This is correct. That partition is the fat32 partition which is mounted as /boot upon booting.

Have a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be ... ptional.29
For info on how to connect. I'd install something like wicd pretty soon to handle this on future reboots. See the arch wiki on wicd for info on the subject.

Re: WPA works but not WEP

I might misunderstand what you are doing, but it seems to me like you are trying to connect to a wep network with a wpa tool. This will not work. To test if your pi will connect to a wep network you can run # iwconfig wlan0 essid "MyNetwork" key "s:password" Then run dhcpcd wlan0 and it should work ...

Re: USB WiFi Arch Linux Install

If you run ip link set wlan0 up
And you do not get an error then you most likely do not need firmware.

Re: X hangs - no mouse, no keyboard

Is your power supply rated at 1A + ?

Another thing you could try is installing Debian wheezy. It is beta, but IMO more mature then squeeze in many areas.
