Problem solved. You need to hdmi_ignore_hotplug.

Less than obvious...

Works fine now.

Thanks!

Boot the system.

No video on the TV set, set is set up to run in Analog mode. What am I doing wrong? Using NOOB, Raspberian, clean system.

You will find the answer from the official raspberry pi website.

I ended up with an upside down mini milk crate and some zip ties to secure the monitor/tv set. Stuff goes inside, cables through the holes in the side.

On shielding.  Don't care and would not expect the 10 foot flat cable to be .

On the price.  You changed the color to something other than green or they corrected some error they had and set the price back to the other colors.  Who knows.

Have you checked if this cable is shielded? It probably is not and that could cause problems.

Apt & Synaptic do the same thing as far as dependencies is concerned, Synaptic being a gui front-end for Apt, but Synaptic is so much friendlier when looking for packages. Of course, if one runs totally headless with just a command line installation the choice of Synaptic is eliminated.

I had not played with my RPi in over a year -- other project, and with the NOOB system, things went MUCH more smoothly. Also having a 16 gig SD card did wonders, along with using Synaptic package manager. MUCH cleaner system than the command line approach.

just look for tightvncserver

$ sudo apt-get install tightvncserver

works well on several rip with several programs running

Re: Recovery after crash caused resizing of SD card

Are you sure that you lost the size, and not that the only parition

you'll have 2 partitions, you'll need to use the computer manager I
think is what it's called to find your sd memory card and remove both
partitons, re-format the partition to a single partition, then format
the partition, then copy noobs and boot-up from it.

Last 2-3 days I turned my RPI back on after 2 weeks Christmas vacation plus 2 weeks of other activity. I decided to do:
Sudo apt-get upgrade
Sudo apt-get update
Afterwards, when I booted, I never got to my GUI and had line items indicating a problem with keyboards..So no problem I snapped in my backup SD card,,
It came up just fine. So I started the upfate-upgrade on it and took the SD card to my machine #4 (Win7) that has a card reader to copy my latest backup back on it..
Well guess what? I couldn't get a fresh backup on the SD card.
At the same time the other SD car puked just like the first...
Well SD card #1 is 16Gb and SD card #2 was 32GB...So I figured... I'll start over because it was taking a long time to update-upgrade..

Well at Raspberrypi.org, they now have NOOBS V1_3_4
I downloaded and decided I was going to do a fresh install of NOOBS etc.
That when I found out both SD cards were 55mb... Windoze7 would only format for 55mb..Not enough to load NOOBS....

Well the answer was something blew away part of my SD cards and made them smaller than they were.
The solution is to go download and format the SD card with the SDCard formatter from this site...They have formatters for Windoze, Linux and Mac.. I downloaded SDformat V4.0 at:
http://www.sdcard.org
By setting some of the format options, Both cards returned to their proper size and I'm loading NOOBS now...

Whatever resized the cards it was repeatable and when the SD cards were in the PI..
I wondering if anyone else is seeing this and perhaps this may save someone time figuring it out.

Re: FLDIGI

 

Paul,

That was going to be my suggestion; I suspect that the Signalink requires more current than the RPi can output, which is why you were having trouble transmitting.

FWIIW, I found that my RPi doesn't like the SLUSB connected to it -- moved it to the hub, and works fine now with FLDIGI, PSK31, thus far.

Thanks for the help/hints!

Re: Recovery after crash caused resizing of SD card

Jim Unroe <rock.unroe@...>
 

When you use Win32DiskImager to write the Raspian (or other image), no matter how large the SD card is, it will only use the size of the image. And that space is likely partitioned into smaller sizes. The only one that windows recognized is 55 Mb.

Anyway, what you are seeing is normal. If you want to use the whole card after installing the Raspian image, you would have to use a partition manager like Partition Magic or EASUS Partition Master to resize the partitions.

Re: FLDIGI

OK, I disabled the multi feature. Now get good stable decodes, etc.

HOWEVER, when I attempt to transmit, indication is that it is OK, but interface won't key up.

SLUSB works fine on another computer, so that is not it, or the cable. I am plugged directly into the RPi.

Help!
