Re: The much heralded "Buster"- When?

https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a ... 00003.html

Buster's currently scheduled to be released July 6

And given that security support's going to happen for stretch for a while longer, the RPF and raspbian developers have time to plan a migration

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

I can't help but think the pi2's update slipped through unnoticed and it'll be on 4.19 once rebooted?

Re: Does anyone know how much RAM will be in the Raspberry Pi 4?

I don't know that anyone knows yet. All I've seen is an alleged timeframe that's still a couple years out. But it's reasonable to say it won't be a VC4-based processor unless ARM comes out with a significantly better in some way core in the A53's niche. If this is the case, the Pi4B will likely have...

Re: A unimportant feature request related to the "Raspbian with recommended software" image

It'd be easier to install the dummy package and let apt do its thing when there's software added.

We're talking about something along the lines of all the (Ubuntu flavor name)-desktop packages in Ubuntu like lubuntu-desktop or xubuntu-desktop.

Re: Raspbian Lite: Please have SSH enabled by default

You don't need to become root to do malicious things, just saying.
Root just expands your options for mischief.

As others have said, ssh is staying disabled unless they go to the ubuntu style "no predefined account, set up first account on first boot" model.

It would make my use-case simpler to implement if there were a dummy package, for the sake of argument, let's call it "Raspbian-recommended-software" that depends on all the software that's included in the recommended software image but not the regular raspbian image. Though for what I know, this al...

Re: What support does the Raspberry Pi foundation provide to Raspbian

I'm sorry for this thread. I can get a little paranoid at times and become somewhat unreasonable. The fact that there's a large install base and a lot of technically inclined users in the raspberry pi community probably helps, to be honest.

Honestly, I can see the use case for more than 1 GB of RAM on a rpi.

Considering that there's one USB 2.0 bus that provides bandwidth for both the ethernet port and all the usb ports (though the pi3's wifi is via SDIO), there might be better options, depending on how much throughput you plan to get. The problem is most of these "better options" have nowhere near the ...

I'm not sure a full-size SD can be cut down to microsd and still work.

That said, I believe NOOBS 1.8 or whatever the Raspbian release before 2016-03-18 was (2016-02-26 I believe) would work. But why start with an outdated OS?

Judging from what the back of my Odroid C1 says, they do at least some of the manufacturing in Korea (see attached photo).

Tom's Hardware removed the heat sink from a number of running x86 machines and demonstrated that a CPU can burn up in less than a second or two.

As I understand it, the only change in the form factor is that the LEDs moved on the RPi 3 due to the wifi/bluetooth antenna. Other than that it should be the same.

My understanding is that part of the point of the RPi is that it's cheap. Adding a FPGA would probably mean a non-trivial price increase.
