Re: Raspbian released on 2015-05-05

Does this new release supports more WIFI chipsets out of the box?

ex: RTL8188eu

MrEngman fantastic thread about supporting "other" WIFI chipsets


Thank you,

Re: PI2B does not boot anymore

Worth noting there was a firmware update yesterday. Perhaps something went wrong there. Checking the md5sums of your /boot files to make sure there's no corruption could help. This sounds like a long shot, but worth trying. I am saying this because( I assume both PI are the same model): [...truncat...

Re: Installing micro camera in a vintage camera

I would suggest Use PI Camera, with the brilliant cable extender (I do not believe the PI will fit in your camera) from Petit_Studio Second step would be to install SMTP on the pi, and some buttons on the GPIO to start a script that will call raspistill & send the E-mail. you can read more about RPF...

Re: PI2B does not boot anymore

Really shooting in the dark here:

is it possible the IR sensor had a fault that shorted GPIOs?

if you touch the SOC, is is hot ?

Re: Why USB still causes reboot?

This might not be feasable in your situation.

My way of avoiding USB reboot (on a model B) is to use a powered hub, that provide power to the PI.
The data port from the hub is connected to the USB of the PI
The USB devices are connected and disconnected from the hub.

Having (quickly) read through (some of) the OSMC post I suspect there's some confusion w.r.t. NOOBS.

Both NOOBS full and NOOBS lite download other O.S. images (and Raspbian for NOOBS lite) to in...
