After lots of reading and frustration. First of all, make sure the normal user has read and write acces to the USB drive. The correct 'non-root' fix for having write acces to the USB drive is:
Step 1: Stop transmission daemon
sudo service transmission-daemon stop
Step 2: Add pi to debian-transmission group
sudo usermod -a -G debian-transmission pi
You could use qemu (http://wiki.qemu.org/Main_Page) to emulate a Raspberry Pi on your computer, and feed your SD card as the boot device in the command line options of qemu.
QEMU can be used on Windows/Linux/Mac.

Your original config was ok, except for the comma's in your first line.
So use auto lo eth0 wlan0 instead...
auto lo wlan0
iface lo inet loopback
iface wlan0 inet manual
iface default inet static
None of the answers here worked for me, so I am writing a new one referencing https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-torrentbox/ which worked great for me and allowed me to run transmission as pi user to access my USB drive. This is not directly answering the OP but this question is very popular (first Google result) for this sort of problem so I put it here.
In addition to @Krzystof 's excellent answer, I would quote what I read in this post:
Include the hdmi_ignore_cec_init=1 switch in /boot/config.txt.
Then in Settings>System>Input devices>Peripherals>CEC turn off the option: "Make XBMC the active source at start".
With Raspbmc, exit XBMC from the shutdown menu (choose exit, not shutdown). At the blue screen press Esc and you will be greeted with a login prompt. The default username is "pi", the default password is "raspberry". I believe you can also press Esc during boot to access the console. Alternatively you could log in via SSH.
This will not work on OpenELEC.
You could try this. It is best used on the Raspberry Pi 2, because this is pure software rendered and will use a lot of CPU. You need to have Chromium installed.
tar -xzf PepperFlash-220.127.116.11-armv7h.tar.gz
chmod +x *
sudo cp * /usr/lib/chromium/plugins
sudo nano /etc/...
There is an undocumented option in /boot/config.txt that might help you:
Tried and tested under Raspbian "Jessie" (not Raspbmc). The display goes to sleep after about 10 minutes of inactivity. Source: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/487
[Note that the Pi itself cannot sleep like grown-up PC-s do.]
Edit: Turns out that this ...
I solved with Apt-Pinning.
In that way you can choose to use jessie's repository to obtain an update (!not the latest!) version of transmission, actually is 2.82-1.1.
Here how you can do it:
sudo apt-cache show transmission-daemon | grep Version
Will show you only one version (the wheezy's version), right?
Add jessie repository to /etc/apt/sources.list:
After installing the cec-client per the above answer by HeatfanJohn, I am successfully able to power on/off my Vizio E390i-A1 LED HDTV. I wrote a script for the community:
Create new file via:
mkdir /opt/scripts; vi /opt/scripts/turntv.sh

Wireless is very generalised and mis understood.
You need to examine your Wireless configurations before you can try and adjust speed.
Many new routers come pre configured to run in mixed mode, using both the g and n standards. This is great if you want all your devices to work together but it becomes a real problem when you start to transfer large ...
Figured it out when I opened it up in a tmux window because it was getting annoying to keep killing the terminal tabs; just do a ctrl+D and that will dump you back in the shell:

Suppose your drive drains power from USB port, like most of 2"5: it does not work as PI does not give enough current on those ports. It the drive has its own power supply (most of 3"5), it should work fine.
Another option is to get a self-powered USB hub.
Disconnecting the Raspberry Pi will most likely solve the problem. Just remember that disconnecting Rpi straight from the power source will not cause physical nor driver damage to the SD Card. If you do reconnect and you find that the Raspberry Pi does not boot up or acts funny, reformat the SD card & reburn the OS (Noobs Image) back onto the Sd card.
The following worked for me, with an SD card that was originally prepared with NOOBS. I was going from a 32GB SD-Card to a 128 GB Card.
Insert the new card into an external card reader and attach it to the Pi.
Close all windows that pop up

Although this question is very old, I would like to post my answer that I found recently. I am running Raspberry PI 2 Model B with 2.8 PiTFT capactive display. Once I figured out how to get my pitft display to work with Raspberry PI, I could not get Raspberry PI to switch over to HDMI output no matter what I did. Then, I came across this information, which ...
Ctrl-Alt key combos won't work on Raspbmc because XBMC running on the Pi runs under OpenGL directly on the framebuffer, and not under X11 like it would on a regular Linux desktop.
In order to get a terminal in Raspbmc you need to quite out of XBMC without powering off. This should be possible by going to the little power icon and selecting "Exit".
Actually, there is some weird (but working!) way to avoid RaspBMC reinstallation in this case.
Firstly, you should prepare the following script:
echo "Start insserv clearing"
rm rc?.d/S* rc?.d/K*
typeset -l l=
while [[ $l != n ]]; do
for x in init.d/*; do
[[ -s $x ]] || continue
This is called CEC. It runs over pin13 of the HDMI connector
Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) is an HDMI feature designed to
allow the user to command and control up-to 15 CEC-enabled devices,
that are connected through HDMI
It can work in both directions. raspbmc can also turn the TV on and make itself the active source
There seems to be a way to do it (full disclosure: I haven't verified it, yet).
XBMC uses .nfo files to track playcount and other statistics (as well as to display thumbnails, descriptions aso.). It also has a mechanism to easily migrate your play settings (from another machine).
As described here, there is a way to import an "...
You should be able to set up a Samba Server on the Raspberry Pi which would be able to host your content to the other computers on your network.
You should only need to make minimal changes to the /etc/samba/smb.conf in order to set up network shares. According to this source the default config looks like the following:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
Is it posible?
If so how?
The most common approach is probably the LAMP stack (minus the "M" if you don't need an SQL server). There's tons and tons of information, books, etc. available about this.
There's nothing special about the raspberry pi in this context; raspbian is a normal linux distribution, so you can follow normal instructions for ...
well your topic is quiet interesting for me too, but..
IMHO i dont think that it is possible to boot a device via bluetooth remotly, because the system is completly unloaded.
you tried to switch hibernate/sleep mode with your bt keyboard? i think that should be just a configuration issue.. but ok.. offtopic.
maybe you can fit your needs with a remote ...
For me happened the same, I bought also the sd card with the rpi . There is a problem with some boards with the "M" logo chip aboard, and you must update to the last version of NOOBS for work (or the classic raspbian alternative, my favorite for "experts"). I can't blame them after all, the boards had some changes and the sd cards comes with some months of ...
Generally the only solution is to reconnect the drive. If it's bus powered plug it in through a powered hub. I suspect that your drive, and by extension the USB bus is getting hammered by the checksum stage of BT. This is causing it to drop out. I'm not sure you can disable that with BT Sync though. It seems there's a disk_low_priority setting though that ...
I think I solved the problem by replacing the SD card with one from SandDisk. Raspberry has worked for several days without freeze. Seems like GoodRAM SDHC 8GB Pro class 10 didn't play well with Raspberry Pi.
I updated list of SD cards compatibile with Raspberry Pi accordingly.
The person who wrote that blog is a bit of a twit. You do not need anything other than the cross-compiler to build and install a kernel. Ignore anything that involves the separate "tools" directory.
i was able to complete the configuration setup and compilation
Good. Go into the arch/arm/boot subdirectory. There should be a file there 2-4 MB in size ...
