I decided to write this post due a silly trap that to be honest I think should be avoided in next updated of the raspbian pixel version. The last official downloadable version at the date is the 2016-11-25-raspbian-jessie.img Here and there there are tons of posts of users that are not able to connect via SSH to a fresh raspbain installation on a PI3 of this version; I had the same problem too and tried to solve the problem thinking to the most common issues like removing the .ssh/known_ ...
This is not a problem but a fact. And there is also a precise reason: the first model of the PI, with 256 Mb ram uses the I2C channel 0 instead of the I2C channel 1 adopted in the further versions. So, as the Microstack accelerometers is hardware compatible with the PI model A+, the software no. The key was to discover from what was depending this issue, that is the i2C channel settings. And nothing changes if you manually enable also the channel 1 because it is question of internal sett ...
I suppose that it is not rare that tying for a solution the approach will be installing packages on the Raspberry PI environment, check how the stuff works then abandoning the solution to move to a different approach. This usually means sudo apt-get install a certain number of packages and the related dependencies occupying storage space. Deciding that a certain approach is not what we want we can remove the packages in the same way se installed them: $> sudo apt-get remove <pac ...
There is something that I use almost intensively on the Linux environments and after testing this feature on Pi SSH connection I have decided to make this post. Frankly I am not sure if I have find nothing about the -Y feature mentioned around Element14 because it's so obvious to be silly or it is really a very few used feature. Apologise if it is the first case This feature has been tested with raspian wheezy on all the Raspberry PI models included the first version no more available on ...
