Solved: Wrong default keyboard on boot - gentoo 64-bit

I had to change the XkbLayout option in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf from "gb" to "us" in order to solve this.
BTW: Is there any way to mark a thread as SOLVED?

Re: Wrong default keyboard on boot - gentoo 64-bit

Thanks for the replies. I'm still stuck. When I boot up under gentoo I am auto logged into demouser. If I then do Applications Log Out Log Out I am presented with the Log in dialog box. There is where the problem occurs. If I have a password that contains characters where the same keys on my keyboar...

SOLVED: disable autologin gentoo 64-bit

Hi, I found what I wanted in the GitHub notes by sakaki. I don't know how I missed it. The mail spool warning may safely be ignored. Also, if you want your new user to be automatically logged in on boot (as demouser was), substitute your new username for demouser in the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.con...

Wrong default keyboard on boot - gentoo 64-bit

Hi, I can't seem to get a "US" keyboard recognized as such at the login prompt. Once I'm logged in it is set up correctly. I though if I wrote keymap="us" in /etc/conf.d/keymaps and then rebooted this would work, but it doesn't. Any suggestions on how to fix this are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Randy

Re: Using Dave Welch's bootloader07

Thanks to everyone who replied. I built a toolchain on linux using crosstool-ng, built and loaded blinker01using minicom and bootloader07 under linux and it worked. Hopefully I now have an environment in which I can develop my own programs for my Raspberry Pi A+. BTW the arm toolchain that didn't wo...

Re: Using Dave Welch's bootloader07

The problem does not seem to be speed related. As far as I can tell screen does not have a file transfer capability. I spent time on Saturday building a toolchain under linux but the resulting programs do not run on the raspberry pi. I'm going to try again using cross tool-ng to create the tool chai...

Re: Using Dave Welch's bootloader07

Well I've determined that the problem is minicom. I'm using a Mac and I installed minicom using brew. File transfer simply does not work! When I use minicom on linux everything works fine.

Re: Using Dave Welch's bootloader07

I'm sure I'm just doing something wrong in minicom when I try to send the hex file. I left minicom running and used cat to select the file and redirected the output from cat to the port opened by minicom and the program loaded via the boot loader and is running fine. I'd really like to figure why I ...

Using Dave Welch's bootloader07

Hi, I 've successfully booted up with Dave Welch's boot loader and see the IHEX prompt. I'm using minimum. I can't seem to load a .hex file. I don't know what protocol to use. Is it ASCII, which I have been trying. Whenever I try to transfer a file using the ASCII protocol I hear the bell three time...

Re: WiFi Issues ? Start here !

Hi,

It appears that putting the post-up iwconfig wlan0 power off command in /etc/network/interfaces works for me.

Thanks for posting this tip.

Re: WiFi Issues ? Start here !

Hi, I've tried the steps mentioned for creating /etc/network/if-up.d/wlan0 and they don't work for me. I checked the filename, that it is executable and that the command is correct several times. If I enter the ifconfig command from the command line or use sudo to execute the file it works fine. But...
