RPi Reboots instead of Halting

If I have the Gertduino plugged in, and issue a "halt" command on the RPi, it does a reboot instead.

Repeatable every time.

RTC

How do you use the RTC?
What modules need to be loaded on the Pi?

Thanks

Re: Software from Farnell

Hi Gert,

It might be a good idea to include the initial set-up command in the zip file, or at least make it clear that there is no space between the "-" and the "U" at the end of the first line and the beginning of the second in the PDF file.

Re: Software from Farnell

I've already given element14 a nudge via Twitter. The "gertduino.tar" looks like an older file with stuff for the Gertboard perhaps? The user manual seems to be uploaded in two places on the element14 site. The versions are the same but looks like a recipe for one of them falling behind. Not all th...

Software from Farnell

I'm confused! Cannot relate the software from Farnell http://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-64547?ICID=knode-gertduino-space to the Manual. The downloaded software does not appear to work. There is a typo in "setup". "hwclcok" should I think be "hwclock". However the output when I run it is: S...

Probably a power supply issue.
The model A requires quite a bit less power than a model B.

Re: NOOBS v1.3 Beta testers feedback

It it possible to reinstall just one OS?
Suppose you have screwed up the instance of Arch for example, it wold be nice to go back to a fresh install of that but leave all the others untouched

Codec Licences

Downloaded and installed Lite version. Awesome so far!
What would be great is a way to enter codec licenses in one place to be used by all the OSes.

Dave Akerman ( http://www.daveakerman.com/ ) has used a Pi, PiCam, GPS receiver, Transmitter, etc in a small payload for his high Altitude Balloon. Perhaps he can tell us if he did anything special.

Video rotate by 270

Hi,
Perhaps a naive question, but is the detector square? If you rotate by 90 or 270 degree do you lose resolution? I.e. are there enough pixels for the width in either configuration?
