Re: timeout in locking authority file /home/pi/.Xauthority

Hi,
I don't know if there is something "cleaner" to do, but I managed to solve this problem by rewriting the SD card.
So I still don't know what caused this error, and why I have never seen it again.

Re: Is 60mV a normal voltage loss for a power supply cable ?

The results are the same if I use a powered USB hub or not.
That's my main problem. And whatever configuration I try, I am not able to have a stable wifi connection.
That's why I started to wonder about power supply, voltage and so one.

Re: Is 60mV a normal voltage loss for a power supply cable ?

Thank you for your advice, mahjongg.
The resistance of F3 is 0.3 Ohm

With a keyboard and a mouse, the voltage on F3 is 85.8mV.
If I plug HDMI too, the voltage is 89.9V (but sometimes reaches 100mV)
Then if I measure the resistance of F3 again I get 0.2 Ohm.

Re: Is 60mV a normal voltage loss for a power supply cable ?

So I tried with another voltmeter, and I got 4.89V. Results are similar wwith the two PSUs...
Still not so good.
It is the same if I use a powered USB hub or no hub at all...

Re: Is 60mV a normal voltage loss for a power supply cable ?

The cable I use is a Samsung one (provided with a smartphone), and the 4.79V is measured between TP1 and TP2.
I will tell you tonight the results with another voltmeter.
It's good to hear that Apple's PSUs are good as I only have those. :)

Re: Unable to login to GUI

Normally when you boot your Pi, it asks you to login and you have to type "pi" for the username ans "raspberry" for the password. If it is correct, it will then let you type whatever command you like (like "startx" to start the GUI for example). If it is wrong, it will just tell you to login again. ...

Thank you for the quick answers. I tried two different Apple power supplies, one rated 5V 1A, and the other 5V 2.1A.

Is 60mV a normal voltage loss for a power supply cable ?

Hello,
I measured voltage I have on my Pi, because I wasn't sure if it was enough.
The result was about 4.79V.
Then I asked myself what was the loss in the USB / micro USB cable (80 cm), and I found it is 60mV.

Is it normal or is the cable bad ?

Thanks for the support :)

You can extend the partition with GParted with the computer you used to format the SD card, too.
