Re: Boot the raspberry pi with a different kernel

It must be noted that ARM Kernel Support was added from version 3.7.x, prior to that, like Raspbian a specific Kernel had to be built, the Official Debian Kernels only support ARMv7 not the Pi's ARMv6 afaia. It may be an easier task to undertake making the specific software you want to run, run with...

Re: new (?) USB issue

Yes I do like to live with latest and have found that doing so has caused me no issues over the last few days since I started afresh with a new SD Card and Raspbian Image.

Though have not tested Bluetooth as yet with my USB BT2.0 (Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)) Dongle.

If you run rpi-update (with no parms) now, you'll get the very latest 3.10.18+ (built this afternoon) and it fixes some of the missing driver problems. Latest rpi-update (after running apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade) is now: uname -a Linux raspberrypi 3.10.18+ #587 Sun Nov 10 15:30:45 GMT ...

If it is not recognised by lsusb then no driver will make it work, you may need it plugged into a USB Powered Hub ?
