Re: RPi output too big for monitor (composite)

You will want to adjust the overscan values in the boot configuration file. See http://elinux.org/R-Pi_ConfigurationFile . This post indicates values are in terms of pixels: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=6082&p=79924&hilit=overscan+pixels#p79924 . You may need to adjust it a...

Re: Can't get past startup screen!!

Should this be merged with http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 11#p146411 ?
Did you download 2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian.img or a different image for Arch Linux... or did you download two images?

Re: Can't get past startup screen!!

I downloaded Raspbian for my Pi, but after login and password I type in startx, but the command does not recognise this? Why is that? I can't get into my RPi at all...! Had same problem with Arch Linux. I'm a relatively new user myself, but I've seen in several forum messages that people ask for mo...

Re: Request tool/access to SD post mortem 'out-of-body'

I forgot to include the finish for the session after getting to the logs: For the remote access through ssh, use exit from su mode and logout . Then at the linux console use shutdown -h now (That way one does not have to manually enter commands to unmount the added devices: the Live CD will start up...

Re: Request tool/access to SD post mortem 'out-of-body'

Thank you alexchamberlain! (And thank you to the others too!) So far, I've found the logs on the raspian SD card's second partition, which is invisible to Windows XP. (One can search the forum and find posts that say it is invisible--if one realizes the need to do so and knows what search text to us...

Re: Request tool/access to SD post mortem 'out-of-body'

A utility for Windows would be fabulous: Windows users (such as I am) would be able to get the information without having to close applications for rebooting the PC. This would hold also for classrooms where Windows is the default OS. Read-only access should be sufficient (and safer) for diagnosis: ...

Re: Request tool/access to SD post mortem 'out-of-body'

There's the rub--when what should work does not or has stopped working, such a tool or procedure might help with diagnosis.

Request tool/access to SD post mortem 'out-of-body'

The minimum requirements for the RaspberryPi to boot are the SD card and power: the RaspberryPi may boot and work properly even if the other peripherals do not. Problem: My first session went smoothly, with keyboard and mouse on a hub and GUI via RCA composite to a TV, and with GUI via CygwinX on a ...
