Shairport kills Pi

So I got onto the desktop of my pi and set up the wifi using the wpa_gui that's there. Everything is cool. Then I unplug the HDMI cable from my tv since I want to SSH into the pi to do things and the wifi doesn't work. It kept saying that the "Host was down." Eventually it did start working and I wa...

Re: Wireless auto connect wicd-curses

This may be a dumb question, but when I plugged up the pi to my tv using the HDMI port, it just brought up the same terminal environment that I get when I ssh into it.

Re: Wireless auto connect wicd-curses

Sorry, I always forget something important...

Wheezy is the OS yes. Just downloaded and installed 2 days ago. I tried to do the file changes and just messed things up so I did a fresh install and then found wicd and it's been the only thing to work so far.

What other option is there?

Re: SSH connection refused

Thanks for the en1 explanation, I was very curious about that. Literally, 10 minutes after this got approved I found this http://trevorappleton.blogspot.com/2013/03/remotely-find-raspberry-pi-ip-address.html I just had the wrong IP address and could never find an easy way to get the correct one. So ...

SSH connection refused

Hello, I've been googling things for hours now and nothing has worked for me. I am trying to ssh into the pi from my macbook. I use ssh frequently to connect to computers on campus so I have slight knowledge of using ssh. The lights on my board next to the power light all light up so it's connecting...
