I've never been a fan of altering network setting using the GUI.Pi-n-Mash wrote:I get those warnings on Fedora 14 in the qtonpi distro. I also have to enable ethernet each time, because I don't know how to enable it permanently. the qt wiki says to use "dhclient eth0" followed by "ifconfig -a" to find out the IP address, so you can ssh into the RPi.
No doubt this is an absolute beginner's question, but I'd appreciate a pointer to enabling ethernet. The gui tools (sysadmin-config??) don't seem to be available.
I've also tried installing tiger vnc server (couldn't find tight vnc for fedora) and samba, but both fail, probably because there aren't arm5 versions out there. They're OK on the debian install.
Just got back to this! Your answer is spot on - the ifcfg-eth0 file had ONBOOT=no, so I changed it to yes and the qtonpi image now boots up with ethernet enabled, and I can ssh to the RPi.nicknml wrote:I just mounted in qtonpi image and the file does exist. (I hate the inability to edit posts)
But first of all, I've installed vi (vim) I can't stand nano and I've discovered that my fingers remember vi commands from ten or fifteen years ago, especially "." That's my favourite command of all time! [repeat last command]Pi-n-Mash wrote:Now for bigger problems - getting qt to work, possibly getting wifi to work, samba, vnc etc
Going through dmesg (type dmesg|more), I noticed in the kernel command line two parameters bcm2708_fb.fbwidth=720 and bcm2708_fb.fbheight=576, so I added them to the file /boot/cmdline.txt, with the values I needed; it worked.stetilley wrote:Hi guys,
I'm having real trouble changing my screen resolution. When I go into the monitor settings the only choice is 1920 x 1080. Now, I had the exact same issue when using this monitor (it's actually an HDTV) with Windows and had to change the resolution in the nvidia settings manager to resolve this (turns out the correct resolution for this screen is 1842 x 1026).
I've looked through the forum, and found a possible solution involving creating a file called config.txt in the boot folder, but Fedora isn't letting me create this file (access denied), and when I try to run "sudo openbox" in terminal it tells me that my user (the only one on the system) is not on the list of sudoers, and that the incident has been reported :S
