Re: Have one rasp pi detect when another stops working

I needed exactly what you are asking for. I ran into too many issues, plus, I needed another pi to detect if my "heartbeat" pi was working, etc. I ended up just going with uptime robot. It works great for me.

Re: Upgrading the Pi

The biggest problem is there won't be any security updates. Second problem is old NOOBS with new hardware won't boot and it's a pain in the tail to upgrade it (you have to muck about with the recovery partition). The underlying question is always "What stops you upgrading to Jessie Stretch, tell us...

So, you've been running sudo rpi-update and the SDCard doesn't contain NOOBS.
Correct.

Re: Upgrading the Pi

Old post, but I just wanted to update since there appears to be some incorrect responses to my initial question. An SD card with Wheezy can, in fact, be moved from a Raspberry Pi B+ to a Raspberry Pi 3. I just did that today without any issues. I was tired of the slowness in the B+ and bit the bulle...

I couldn't find the Libreoffice plugin in Nextcloud, but Libreoffice supports remote saving/editing using the Webdav URL interface. That actually works really well.

Re: Upgrading the Pi

So whats the easiest way to upgrade from Wheezie to Jessie? Is it just an apt-get dist upgrade? I guess one way I could do the upgrade is to clone the SD card, then attempt to do the dist upgrade on the cloned SD card to see if everything works in the new Pi... unless someone else has a better option.

So it sounds like in my current state, I just can't just do a swap. I'll have to upgrade Raspbian Wheezie to Jessie first?

Thats definitely risky.

Re: /var/run tmpfs

You are right! I just noticed that.

/var/run is linked to /run which is a tmpfs

tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,mode=755)
