Pi image issues...

Post by TechCom » Wed Apr 17, 2019 5:29 pm

Totally can't get the v1.2 image to work on an 8GB card. Get superblock errors, if those are corrected then can never connect to the vnc and webserver etc.

I ASSUME this is do to the image not really being small enough for some 8gb cards, and as I have no spares I haven't tested it out on any others. Just seeing if anyone else can concur this is the issue before getting another card (or alternatively the next release is shrunk a little).

All the images are shrunk down to 7G, so they should fit on all 8GB cards, unless yours is really bad?

Are you able to connect to the KerberosPi WiFi?

So a 32gb card was cheaper than I thought and I found some money...

Works fine now.

Wifi did work before supposedly with a static address.

Windows/linux would report different sizes of the card and image depending on what dialog window you looked at, and sometimes it showed the image larger than the card (rounding off?)

Or my card was just borked from the beginning.
