I have an old monitor that only takes VGA, a passive adapter from HDMI to VGA and a Raspberry Pi B with the most recent version of Raspbian. I followed this guide: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/three-ways-to-display-your-raspberry-pi-on-a-monitor-or-tv/, and it asks me to add a couple of lines to the config.txt. The file did not exist so I created it, and you can see the content below:
jdoe@jdoe:/media/jdoe/sdcard/boot$ ls -l total 4 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35 Jun 26 12:19 config.txt jdoe@jdoe:/media/jdoe/sdcard/boot$ cat config.txt hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_drive=2
I've checked the monitor with another computer, and it does work.
How do I solve this?
