Re: Raspberry Pi Package Compatibility

Might be good to include the version as well, as some packages are available in for example squeeze but not in wheezy.

Re: Android Transporter

Not a clue unfortunately.

I still can't find a definitive source on the possibility of using MHL with the nexus 7.
iFixit just did a tear down and they mention their unit came with a USB to hdmi cable, which leads me to believe it will support MHL.

Re: Black screen and pointer arrow after typing startX

You could give the Debian wheezy beta a go.
It worked very well out of the box for me.

Just to make sure, your sd card isn't switched to read only, is it?

Re: Android Transporter

I am not in any way affiliated with the company/developers making this. That said, on their website they say they hope to go open source as soon as their APIs are mature enough. This leads me to believe that their software will be free (in both definitions). I'd guess it supports sound as well as th...

I have the same dongle and mine worked right out of the box.

I am running the Debian beta release combined with wicd and mine worked without installing any firmware etc.
Mine is plugged into the the op USB port, with a wireless keyboard/mouse combo in the bottom one.

Re: How-to: Enlightenment Desktop Environment under Arch

One thing to add anoknusa.

The reason you might get 404 errors if you do pacman -S some-package is that your package list is not up to date.
Pacman -Sy some-package does update the mirrors, however is not good practice either.

Solution? Always do pacman -Syu and then do pacman -S some-package

Re: Using usb hard drive as default boot and storage?

You could write the image to both your sd card and your HDD. Then remove the first partition on the HDD (the fat32 one). Change the /boot/cmdline.txt to point it to /dev/sda1 (on the sd card - fat32 partition). Expand the ext4 partition on the HDD to your preferred size and you should be good to go....

Re: Raspberry Surprise (My experiences with the Pi so far)

I dont know tbh.
I doubt it'll supply enough current without triggering the fuse.

You could search this forum, there are a couple of other threads on the subject.
I think Dom (on of the designers) had some interesting posts on the subject.

Re: Not recognising SD card as device when trying to load im

I think for those to work your sd card needs to be formatted as something that the OS can use. In the case of windows it will need to be FAT (or ntfs). Not sure what your easiest option to fix this is, I'd run gparted from an existing Linux install or the gparted live iso of a flash drive and make s...

Re: Raspberry Surprise (My experiences with the Pi so far)

The USB feeding back current has been found by others as well. It happens on poorly designed hubs. No need to worry AFAIK.

Make sure your keyboard uses as little power as possible (no flashy lights, USB hubs etc)

Re: Are bad blocks in SD cards the norm?

I assume this difference comes from the different ways to measure a gb.
On most USB sticks labeled as 2 gb you'll find that your computer will report them as 1.86 gb.
This is because the manufacturer probably calculated a gb as 10 ^9 bytes.
