Why use an older kernel? Well it's Stable and has long term support! Not sure where your getting no longer supported the people behind the Pi are offering support for it. Old does not equal bad. If you need a newer Kernel use Testing (now Jessie), Sid, or compile your own. Jessie is available for te...

Re: FIRMWARE BROKEN YET AGAIN

Stop updating?

Re: Video issue on Raspbian

It is difficult for me to answer but it doesn't depend on the file type it is the encoding of the files. It sounds like the flv are using VP6.2 and the Pi does not support that see http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=18778&p=184755 and for the second part being choppy I am not sure if ...

Re: Newbie question ....

Power issues. What amps does the hubs supply output. What is the hub can you post a link or give model number. How many and what devices are plugged in. Is it just the FLirc and USB stick? It could also be the hub is back feeding power to the Pi does it have green polyfuses near the USB or black ones?

Re: missing raspi-config

I think it comes down to there isn't always one setting to be changed.

Hopefully the setting gets saved. I...

Re: Please Help Me Troubleshoot A Hardware Issue

Do they all have the same manufacturer printed on the Memory I don't believe that the Pi cares if the card is locked or not I believe that switch detect is a physical connection on the SD adapter which the Pi doesn't have.

Re: Why smartphones' filesystem do not corrupt like RPi?

Their file system isn't stored on an SD Card, are slimmed down, as well as locked down it gets more complicated than that but those are some of the basics. The Pi is operating much more like a PC than a smart phone.

Re: Modifying Pi Board HELP

For a beginner there is risk. It would be better to de-solder the USB and get a single USB in it's place I am assuming you need the ethernet otherwise get a model A. Plenty of YouTube on how to do it Ben Heck has done it recently but it is tricky if you have no experience

Re: SPI,I2C interfaces in Pi

A short answer is the Pi wasn't designed for real time. Rather a multi purpose teaching tool. There are many things going on in the background that interrupt such applications and can cause small delays. In most applications this isn't an issue but for true real time even a very tiny delay can cause...
