Thank you for the very useful feedback. When I have an SSH session open from another computer, and I then start up X on the console, I'm seeing the SSH session slow down tremendously in terms of responsiveness. I presume this is because of the packet loss you describe. This happens whether the CPU is loaded or not -- X just needs to be started.RussB wrote:Bit of feedback, as per Scooby had to delete all the lines to get Eth0 working, done all the apt-get update/upgrade and rpi-update etc.. Generally quite a nippy feel to the build when it comes to responsiveness/boot times.
But I'm getting about a 50-60% packet drop running LXDE, if I don't bother starting X networking is OK with speedy downloads and no packet drops, also Userdel fails with a segmentation fault. I'll do some more digging on both tomorrow and try and give some more info on both.
Oh and if you boot it up with no Ethernet cable connected it hangs for quite a while trying to obtain an IP address again I'll take a look at it and advise.
I apologise I don't understand the rest of your post to try help reproduce. BUT - in terms of power I am running my Pi with 5V straight into pins 2 & 6 of the GPIO (based on some threads between Jan and May that suggested it was possible and bypasses the primary polyfuse. It works just fine - I get 4.9V across the test points which is what I am putting in from my PC power supply) which may be an idea to rule out power?marsman2020 wrote:... no one seems to have reproduced it in a way that rules out power to be able to file a good bug....
I can see many reasons to run X no a headless system. I'm doing so myself. The Raspi is just plugged into my main network switch and is sitting beside it in the basement.mike632t wrote: (why install X on a headless system)
I was about to say the same. An absolutely minimal system would be perfect as a basis for embedded projects. If it boots up and runs apt-get, that's enough. A list of the more likely packages might also be handy, but that could be provided by a list of recipes on a wiki.mike632t wrote:it would be very useful to be able to start with a very minimal image
Are you running as a user instead of root? Try sudo modprobe. I don't think /sbin is in a normal user's PATH.paaland wrote:I can't seem to find modprobe or depmod on the pisces image. And I cannot figure out which package they are supposed to be in. Anyone know?
