edit: the sdcard must be under the PCB.

I don't know... if he would just change the SD card, it should just click -- figuratively speaking of course.

Didn't you read the FAQ?  Class 10 SD cards are flakey.  Could I get you to redesign it for me with mounting holes in each corner?

You need to submit this to Lego at this web site

http://lego.cuusoo.com/

If it gets 10,000 votes then Lego will look into building it.

I think we could get 10k fans out there to vote and it would be a great way to promote the whole Raspberry Pi project

As a long time Lego fan, I would definitely like to see it submitted, and would encourage all I know to vote for it. Go for it!

Well this as only a 10 min build and uses an illegal connection that the Lego company would not use. So unless I do a redesign its not likely to happen.

Obviously you did some strange partitioning voodoo on your sd card. Three primary and one extended partion that contains two logical volumes??!

Repartition and you will be playing Minecraft in just no time!

Seriousily, try turning it off and back on again.

+1,000,000

I would check to see that all of the blocks have been verified, as bad blocks can result in all sorts of nefarious problems.  Choosing the correct block size will also help.  If you choose blocks that are too small, you will be slowed down trying to fit everything optimally.  If you choose blocks that are too big, you will waste space, most notably when you try to fit the Pi into a pocket or even a large-size Altoids tin.

At least you had the good sense to not try building it with Duplo blocks!  :D
