Re: Debian Jessie (codename Aliendeb) for Raspberry Pi 2

may i ask where you get the .zip file or the image to put on a sd card for the pi 2.. seems this dropbox link does not work for I thought that may be where the file is at.

Re: Some beginner / noob issues

probably what u will need to do is take the card out, then in another machine if you have linux,, use gparted and you will have to "unmount" each partition and then delete them 1 by one,, then create a new partition for the full size of the card,, format to fat32, hit apply and the card will be open...
