OK, got all the periphs and conns and unit seems to be working. But, I get an error window:
"SD card has now been formated ready for NOOBS installation. Please re-copy the NOOBS files onto the card and reboot."
....and when I close it a panel comes up with these 4 choices:
Edit OS Edit config(e) Online help(h) Exit(esc)
Problem is, the first two are ghosted.
I formatted a 4G class4 SDHC card via an XP box. I put the NOOBS files on it from a Slackware box by mounting the card (-t auto) and copying the entire zip file to it, then uzipping it.
What now? Ferget NOOBS and try plain wheezy? I got a brand new 16G class10 SDHC card jes in case. Format from linux? Like I said, the Pi seems to be working. Running to an HDMI TV and display is excellent. Mouse and KB work. Jes can't seem to load the NOOBS software. ????
