Dirty Cow bug fix in place?

Is there a fix for the 'dirty cow' bug in the Raspian code base? I have several devices running and this issue sounds like a serious one but I was not sure where I should look to find out about the latest patches. If you know where I can look for those please just let me know. Thanks.

Re: Where do I place xset commands for xinit?

sudo nano ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart Yup, tried that... see the list of locations in my original post. I'm puzzled as the man pages for xinit led me to believe if you start it with a client then only X is invoked and then .xserverrc is checked but clearly something else is going on... BT...

Where do I place xset commands for xinit?

I'm starting up a kiosk like environment by starting up into a console then using a script to call xinit with a client browser application. However 10 minutes later the screen blanks, not very useful for a kiosk! I found that if I ssh into the pi and issue the commands: xset -display :0 s off xset -...

Re: Minimal Kiosk Browser

@gkreidl, your comment has explained a problem I have. Running Kweb in kiosk mode without a WM to host a Smart Mirror I have set the screen to be rotated, 1920x1080 instead of 1080x1920. As a mirror it is a much better display :) Unfortunately it then required that I choose a screen size that only u...

Re: Tontec 2.4-inch TFT LCD

Hi all, thanks for all of the useful information here, I just got the 2.8" version of the screen from Amazon and have found the downloaded driver is now called mzt280-pi-ext. I've found a couple of things so far. 1) I can only get the version I have downloaded to work in 640x480 mode. Simply ch...
