Re: Help with error

Don't underestimate the power-supply, the first time I had to use the shortest micro-usb-cable that I could find (length: about 12 cm), nothing else did work with my cheap usb-charger (5V, 1000mA). And with most of my cheap usb-cord-extensions the voltage on the RaspberryPi dropped to 4.5V. After th...

Re: Help with error

May be its just that the raspbian-image was not written correctly onto the sd-card.

Re: Larger boot partition wanted

@xterm, as has already been stated, your solution will not work for a windows machine, because windows only reads the first partition on a sd card. Edit: Yes thats true, forget the following... The method I described, does not need a windows-machine at all, it works completely on the rpi itself, yo...

Re: Larger boot partition wanted

Edit2: Sorry, but the following does not work! Everything is fine, except for the fact, that the newly created fat32-partition will not show up on a windows-machine ... I suggest to leave the boot-partition as it is! Changing the size of the boot-partition is indeed absolutely possible and not too ...
