Re: 8000 interrupts per second when idle!

On wheezy. I get stuck keys very rarely... (but i used to a lot with my other keyboards). This keyboard has been more stable but seems to do device resets fairly often. BUT the frequency of those resets seems to have increased with this patch, making the shell far less usable. It will stick a key if...

I expect you'll see the same kernel panic I am if you you are watching the serial console. But without serial it's really hard to know what just happened.

I've got gpm running also... don't have samba configured (yet) but I haven't noticed the effects you speak of otherwise with ssh sessions. Have you glanced at /var/log/messages to make sure your mouse itself isn't the culprit? I've had issues with USB devices including mice causing the network drive...

Re: Help test the next Debian image (wheezy)

is it then worth doing a 'sudo apt-get rpi-update', or will I already have the latest of everything? To further clarify. rpi-update is a script that is outside if the package management system (apt-get being a utility to interact with that system). rpi-update handles the firmware and bootcode ONLY ...

Re: Headless minimum hardware start?

Another thought though. With no display... likely the only way to troubleshoot SD cards is with serial-console cable. You can grab an FTDI serial adapter and some jumpers and follow the instructions here. http://www.skpang.co.uk/blog/archives/424 But I have a feeling your methods would work if you j...

Re: dosfsck errors on boot (wheezy)

[resolved]
I'm silly. I had previously added a line to /etc/fstab for my usb key... neglected to include "nofail" in options for when it is not present.

Learned something about how /etc/init.d/checkfs.sh works in the investigation though. Fun.

Re: dosfsck errors on boot (wheezy)

Another clue, running dosfsk manually on /dev/mmcblk0p1 reports no issues.

I'm gonna try another apt-get update and rpi-update and see if it goes away on subsequent boots.

@keithsuddick - Ohh! Will have to try logout again after another update. I didn't realize your keyboard was crapping out... thought it was just network woes within X. Carry on! (And good luck)

so to check the log files I have to close X first - now I can't even do that. Suds.

Re: Electronics Starter Kit for a beginner with nothing

Nothing wrong with getting the Arduino kits. It is more established, better docs for beginners. All the components will apply to both, but you'll have the bonus of owning an Arduino too (which you will probably want eventually anyway if you are interested in these topics).
