Re: Harddrives not recognised

Hi,

Try adding rootdelay=10 after rootwait in cmdline.txt

It maybe the Pi is booting before all the devices are registered, there was a thread about it on here somewhere....

If it works you may be able to trim 10 down a bit....

Failure to boot with "New" usb devices attached.

Hi All, Yet another Pi2 question I’m afraid... I seem to have an issue whereby the Pi wont boot with new USB devices attached, I either get a kernel panic or a load of text about not being able to execute Getty..... I’ve tried usb memory sticks, a joypad, wifi dongle bluetooth dongle, all cause the ...

Re: Temperature

When I was compiling yesterday using all 4 cores i got into the mid 70s C. My B never got anywhere near that hot. May buy a little heat sink for it, I would imagine if the gpu core was working hard as well it would get near critical.

Eye Candy

Guys, Is there a small lightweight package for Raspbian that looks something like the "Performance" tab in Windoze Task Manager, i.e. rolling graphs and current levels for memory & CPU. I've had a look but most of the stuff I've found is fairly heavy weight and requires lots of additional packages, ...

Re: The Correct way to add a RTC

All I can say is I did not need to compile my own kernel to use my ds1307 based RTC module.

The procedure above was done with a stock kernel and stock distribution.

Re: The Correct way to add a RTC

Hi Here is my updated Blog on Interfacing RaspberryPi with RTC, DS1307. A couple of points, a) The screen shots were Ubuntu, why not the Pi ? b) With Raspbian you do not need to mess with the Kernel. c) i2c-tools is available via apt-get, no need to download or compile. d) There was no mention of th...

Re: The Correct way to add a RTC

Hi, I dont think so, if I boot without the RTC attached my Pi boots with a date in the 1970's. It sounds to me like the fake hardware clock may still be running OR that your RTC and internet time do not match... Make sure pi is connected to internet so correct time is set....
