Hello, and a good day to you all.  I am new to this list & ARMedSlack (not 
new to Slackware though).  I recently received a Raspberry PI, and did a 
-current install per the instructions listed here:


All went well, but when I issued the "reboot" command it did not reboot 
properly.  When the PI comes up now it has a solid green (OK) light, and a 
red light doing a quick 6 x flash.

I did a little googling, and found an article on the PI site with my 


In a nut shell the article explains the problem is due to corrupt 
start.elf file.  They recommended You should be able to download start.elf 
from here:
https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... aster/boot

and copy it on the SD card.

Does this sound about right for ARMedSlack?

Any thoughts or hints about this would be greatly appreciated.
