Live streaming news channels via Youtube with RPi4? H265?

My latest RPi is a 2b and is too slow with both Raspbian / Chromium and Librelec / Kodi to stream live new streams like CNN and Sky via youtube. Is the RPi4 fast enough for this or does it halt / hang? The benchmarks look impressive but how well does it do in practice? And will it play H.265 video f...

NoScript XSS Warning on downloads page

I use Firefox 57.03 with NoScript. When accessing the Raspbian Downloads page I get this report: "NoScript XSS Warning NoScript detected a potential Cross-Site Scripting attack from https://www.raspberrypi.org to https://cdn.embedly.com. Suspicious data: window.name" Is it a threat? Thought RPi shou...

Re: openvpn tunnelbear raspbian_April2017

Success! Tunnelbear advised me that they had hardened their system so I looked to move from openvpn 2.3.x to 2.4.

I installed the file openvpn_2.4.0-3-bpo8+1_armhf.deb on my RPi2

and the vpn is now working again. It needed a reboot after the installation to get it fully working.

Re: openvpn tunnelbear raspbian_April2017

I got rid of that warning by changing the file permissions to be the same as with my Ubuntu setup but it has not solved the problem: your pointer on the networking update would be appreciated.

Re: openvpn tunnelbear raspbian_April2017

Thanks. No, am not aware of networking changes that you mention. Can you point me to the information please. Your idea about the Private Key being group accessible may be the problem: I see it does not come up with my successful Ubuntu login. I will check it.

openvpn tunnelbear raspbian_April2017

I have been using tunnelbear with openvpn successfully on my RPi 2 for some time. Recently I did a clean re-installation of Raspbian April 2017 onto a 16GB SD card, set the preferences and eth0, rebooted, updated and upgraded, then installed openvpn, and copied the tunnelbear .ovpn files + certifica...

Re: PI2 -Ubuntu mate Web error HTTPS

I had the same problem. Ubuntu / Firefox was ok but I wanted to leave the download going overnight in the RPi. And for the download to restart if the connection was flaky-which it was. So I captured the link in Ubuntu and copied it into RPi 2 Wheezy. Then used the link in a terminal with wget -c htt...

Re: Python Usage Guide

Hi Ben Just tried your Python examples with IDLE3. A number do not work as expected although they do with python in a terminal or with pyCharm on Ubuntu. eg for i in range(2): print("A") print("B") That was with two new last issues of raspian on a cleaned SD card using a B model with 8GB SD from RPi...

Re: RPi Model B faster than Cray 1 supercomputer!?

Thanks for all the comments. I am glad you found it interesting. The commented line was put in by Jim Gilbreath as a debugging aid and is not intended to be part of the benchmark. I included the remark in case others wanted to see some action. On a PC with an i7-4770K processor running Ubuntu 14.04 ...

RPi Model B faster than Cray 1 supercomputer!?

In 1981 and 1983 Byte Magazine ran two articles on computer and compiler speeds using a Sieve Of Erastosthenes program as a benchmark. I thought it would be interesting to compare the speeds then obtained with those I can get on newly built PC and then on my model B RPi. To my surprise the RPi came ...

I contacted Tenet regarding the mirror redirect. They were going to make contact if they agreed to it. Did Pugwash hear anything more?

Re: Update Mirrors?

The Speedtests that I got were 1.76 Mbps locally and 1.73 to the leaseweb sites DE and NL. It would be fine by me if you want to direct them as the preferred server. Thank you for your help.

Update Mirrors?

I find that in Johannesburg the download speeds when applying apt-get update & apt-get upgrade in wheezy are only around 20 kbps ie about 10% of my available speed of 200 kbps. It seems the downloads are coming from a .in server. I know there are mirrors locally so I installed <synaptic manager> to ...

Re: RPI-Update issue

I had programs which failed to load properly on sudo apt-get update, then sudo apt-get upgrade. Eventually I applied

sudo apt-get autoclean

after which normal operation returned.
