Yes.  There are reports from others that the Microsoft 2.4GHz keyboard/mouse is problematic.  I was only trying to inform others of the issues.

I have no tried a wireless dongle other than the 2.4GHz Microsoft keyboard and mouse.  It doesn’t work correctly under any RPI image.

In addition, it does not work with any Linux distribution I’ve tried other than Fedora.  The issue is that the keyboard driver appears to present repeating characters to the OS even when I am not pressing a key.  So, the only way I can get them to work is with non-wireless keyboard and mouse.  Unfortunately for me, my portable does not have a functional touchpad and the shift on the keyboard doesn’t work.  So, I either have to use a direct connect keyboard or do the development and work on another computer.  Ugh.

After you got it going, how did it look compared to raspian wheezy distro?

I didnt notice you wrote you saw the leds cycling, on and off. The connection may be an issue, to the tv.

My first connection, to a vga monitor through a vga adapter to the rca video out recepticle, had terrible resoution,  480 at best. Big blocky fuzzy fonts etc.

 My second attempt to my new  46 inch hd tv through the hdmi, was dead, no image o the tv.

I disconneted the tv and reconnect to the hdmi outlet that was connected to the  blueray player worked great, with fantastic resolution. It turned out, this is the secound tv that had 1or more hdi out lets that didt work, from the factory.

Adafruit has a altered version of wheezy, called occidentalis ( latin for black raspberry).
It gives wifi dongle drivers, etc and scripts to use i2c and other hardware, sensor devices that can connect to her selection of raspberrry pi sheilds and accesories.
Check them out at Adafruit.com.

Subject: [Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO] Adafruit's own linux flavor Occidentalis

 

 

Adafruit has a altered version of wheezy, called occidentalis ( latin for black raspberry).
It gives wifi dongle drivers, etc and scripts to use i2c and other hardware, sensor devices that can connect to her selection of raspberrry pi sheilds and accesories.
Check them out at Adafruit.com.
Pretty neat site.


Re: RPI Rev 2 Board

Perry Chamberlain <canoeman@...>
 

Adafruits linux disro for the pi has this blurb about their version of wheezy.

"Our distro is based on "Wheezy" but comes with hardware SPII2Cone wire, and WiFi support for our wifi adapters. It also has some things to make overall hacking easier such sshd on startup (with key generation on first boot) and  Bonjour (so you can simply ssh raspberrypi.local from any computer on the local network)"

I am running Rasbian Wheezy also and have Xarchiver. I did not know that it was an unzip type program. I will give it a try and do some reading. I will get back to you....especially if I have some success.

  I'm not sure what distro you are running but I am running Rasbian Wheezy and it comes with "Xarchiver" that is a zip / unzip program that opens the .tar.gz files I just clicked on the file and it automaticly opend in Xarchiver then there is abunch of files there. There is a read me text file that has the instilation procedure but it wasen't real clear to me. Like I said earler it seamed beond my present Linux experence. If you don't have Xarchiver you should be able to do a apt-get and find it and get it installed. Maybe the install instructions makes more sence to you than it dose me.

Hello Danny,
    Thank you for your help.  Without the D-LINK-131
plugged in a USB port, I plugged in a cable to the network adapter of my Rasp Pi
and connected to the internet.   I went to the D-Link website and
downloaded the Linux driver for the     DWA-131
adapter.  Now I have the driver 
“dwa131_linux_drivers_100.tar.gz�  in the   
/home/pi/downloads   directory on my Rasp Pi.   I am not
sure how to proceed with this (tar.gz) file.   I think it has to be
decompressed and then install.   Can you or anybody else explain how
to do this.   Also .....does it have to be in a certain
directory?
Thank you
Don

Hi Don
In
the setup guide it says to install the drivers before you plug in the adaptor
but the included drivers are for windows or MAC you have to go to D-Link's web
site to get the Linux drives. I wen't and downloaded the drivers but I think the
instalation instructions assumes the user has more Linux
experence
than I have. I opened wicd and it was able to see my wirless router but when I
clicked connect it failed. Also when I logged into the router it sees the
Raspberry an has given it an I.P address. There is a help section on the company
web site that says to push the button on the end of the adaptor then push the
wps button on the router but I haven't tryed that yet if that dosen't work I
will contact the help center to see if they can help me get the drivers
installed. If one of us gets it working we should write it up and post it to the
files section.

Hello Danny
No I have not contacted D-Link support. The information that
came with the adapter only had information on how to setup with Window or Apple,
I figure if they had a fix for Linux, it would have been included in their
literature. I also have installed wicd but do not know how to proceed. Nothing
happens when I plug it into a USB port other than it flashing on and off! I know
that the Pi knows it there because when I run lsusb, the system sees it. Good
luck and let me know if you have any success.

If I recall, there is a tutorial on how to cross compile a OS.  Might be able to use that information to cross compile something else.

You can also use cross compile tool chains with gcc.  Use Google to find tutorials.

Is there a way to cross-compile it in Ubuntu or other distro? I wouldn't
expect the Pi to come with the libs etc. needed. Besides which it would
go much faster on a laptop or desktop. I've heard there is but don't
remember where.
