Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

I've been running 10902 since the post this morning.

I've not experienced any lockups, it is still running now, can connect to the ssh server on board, it played my 720p mkv fine. Looks to be a stability improvement.

<t>So, Pi arrived earlier, have been testing with build 10888.<br/> <br/> It regularly locks up in the GUI.

Re: Invitation to order from RS

Mine is also out for delivery now. I'm playing the "Where oh where in the University is it going to turn up" game if the label is what parcelforce said and not what my confirmation from RS said. Admittedly RS send a lot of packages to my department almost daily so hopefully that works out.

Re: How to install Chromium web browser

I wouldn't worry about apologising too strongly. We have some instructions up there now for people that are less able to work it out than ourselves. So long as something now works it should be good.

Instead of using host, perhaps you could ping an ip address like google.com?

Re: Unable to enter initial password using Debian

The user name is "pi" not "Pi".  Have you tried that?

That could possibly be the issue.

User: pi

password: raspberry

That should work.
