The joy of Pi
Well finally connected my Raspberry Pi up and problems already :-[
Don't know if I need a beefier power supply (was powering off wires laptop), but it boots to log in then as soon as I connect the keyboard it crashes :-[
If I try to boot with KB attached it stops with a kernal error 🙁
One thing to mention was the display was very clear and rock solid through HDMI 🙂
It really does need a beefier PSU. I'm using my Kindle one at the moment. Can't remember what amps it needs but it's more than a USB port can really supply (especially if you're then using the USB ports on the Pi itself).

Now thats interesting as I tried a Kindle one and it struggled more than when using the laptop USB ! :-
i remeber reading somewhere that you should not power the Pi from a usb socket on PC/laptop.... i use a Blackberry charger rated at 700Ma

I read that on the sheet that came in the box.
I used a Sony Ericsson charger from my LiveView 🙂
Think it needs 700+ 1000ma recommended I think I read!!
i use one from a HTC phone really stable
Amiga`s are still better than Atari st`s
My iPhone/iPad usb charger seems to play nicely with my Pi too.
Tried Nokia and Samsung chargers, not happy with either :-[ might just sell the damn thing ! >:(
You need a 1A PSU at least. Or attach keyboard, mouse etc via a powered USB hub.
