Re: Raspbian Pices R3


Thanks for the advice.  It works FB on Ubuntu on a portable.  I’ll check the firmware again but I believe it is current.  I don’t like to sound negative but I have not had good luck downloading rpi-update from the webpage.  I found it in other releases so it isn’t a problem.  I tried the 08-16 wheezy and it does not reset the USB port but my RF keyboard still is unusable due to repeat keying.

The current release 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian is a good basis but the latest firmware update is essetial. If you have not run "rpi-update" you will need to. This utility updates the firmware and related files. If you do not have the utility installed you can get instructions from The latest firmware seems to cure almost all my USB problems. I can now get all my sound devices, powered hubs and keyboards working without errors (except when RF gets into the USB cables). You still need to do the apt-get udate and apt-get upgrade afterwards to make sure your software is up to date.
