      I've found that some micro usb cables are rubbish. I bought some on ebay, and the PI got about half way through booting before restarting. If the power supply seems ok it might be worth trying a different cable.

      Had similar problems here until I bought the 5.25V USB power supply and a decent memory card, both from Adafruit. Now it's been up for several days without a hitch. I've no association with Adafruit, I just like their stuff.

      who just got ver B PI . It shuts down after about 5-6 min. Power supply is stable, still puts out 5 volts after shut down . 3.3 V reg ok also.

      Hi folks. The pi port of BPQ32 is about ready for testing. There are sure to be problems with it still, but if anyone is willing to try it please let me know.

        Hi folks.
         
        The pi port of BPQ32 is about ready for testing. There are sure to be problems with it still, but if anyone is willing to try it please let me know. At least to start, I suggest testers should be familiar with BPQ32, and have a basic knowledge of linux commands - this isn't really something for those new to either BPQ or linux to play with at this stage.
        The basic features are:
         
        Has been tested on Raspberry PI and Ubuntu running on a PC.
        BPQ32 compatible Node, includng the APRS Digi/Igate feature
        Uses standard bpq32.cfg
        Drivers for KISS, AXIP, BPQEther, Telnet, SCS Tracker, SCSPTC. I2C Driver for PITNC on the PI. Others to follow.
        Includes the BBS part of BPQMailChat (not chat).
        BBS Configuration and BBS/Node monitoring via a Web interface.
         
        The instructions for installing BPQ on linux can be downloaded from https://dl.dropbox.com/u/31910649/InstallingLINBPQ.htm
