Re: How can i stop my Raspberry from being dormant?

Which one are you using?
a) wired ethernet
b) wifi dongle

This is asked since wifi often has drop out issues while wired ethernet should stay alive easier and longer.

Re: /etc/rc.local not running at boot?

Add a simple echo to /etc/rc.local to verify if it runs or not:
echo "running rc.local" > /tmp/rc_test.txt

Re: Orange Pi Development Boards

Most opensource products are compiled with command like
make
And installed like
sudo make install

Surely this cannot be too difficult for average users. There are exceptions of course.

Re: using startx

What kind of display you have attached? HDMI ?
The error in Xorg.log is normal.

What error / messages are you getting from startx?
Are you using pi user to start it?

Re: Help me getting started!!

I recommend you buy a cheap network switch and connect both machines there.
Simple and working solution, which you can expand to more machines when needed.
And those do not cost that much.

With your not working B, try to add wall-charger to the other flat USB socket so that you backpower from it. After Raspberry has been started, add the the other flat USB to monitor like you are doing now. And finally add the monitor USB to Raspberry micro USB. Now it should work. If you now remove t...

According to the picture he is not backpowering.
(Backpowering means that the small micor usb is not used, but power comes from the normal flat USB.)

I have not yet seen a monitor which can not power Raspi, but not all Raspberries can be backpowered.

I have that same wifi adapter and it works nicely. But I have the same problem that it drops out (I have two other wifi dongles and they all drop out, so this is probably how wifi works when idle).

Re: Raspberry Pi A+ USB port bent pins

Just got my A+ and the USB slot indeed is tight and pins are high, but inserting Edimax carefully it worked.
So maybe just a warning message is enough to fix this issue.

Re: Raspbian and systemd?

On another note a large complaint about raspbian is it's longish boot times - 30ish seconds systemd will cut that in half or less. Have you tried that? How do you know? I doubt it. I do believe that systemd is faster in modern multicpu machines, but I do not believe systemd will be able to utilize ...

Re: CPU stuck at 700MHz

Let's test this a bit.

1) Are you running rasbian?

Code: Select all

uname -a
2) Check that overclocking is seen in boot:

Code: Select all

dmesg|grep cpufreq
3) test if it works (give system some work and check cpu freq):

Code: Select all

nice yes >/dev/null &
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
