Re: 5ghz wifi adapter?

I have found this device to work natively with 5ghz support. https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/communication-1068/wifi-wireless-1070/wifi-dongle-dual-band-5ghz Thanks for posting your finding. It appears to be entirely generic. No manufacturer, no model number. I'd prefer to buy from a North Ame...

Re: Can't access Samba share on Pi (Access Denied)

I finally found a combination that works. This posting got me on the right track. Apparently umask is needed, not fmask and dmask. No idea why. sudo umount /dev/sda1 sudo mount -o rw,users,umask=000 /dev/sda1 /media/pi/disk1 These commands work. Local R/W access as well as over Samba. Now the permis...

Re: Can't access Samba share on Pi (Access Denied)

The idea of creating a share subdirectory on the USB drive (sudo mkdir /mnt/disk1/share) doesn't solve the problem because the purpose of the samba share is get full access to the USB drive, including the root directory, over the network. Setting up smb.conf with [usb] path = /mnt/disk1/share would ...

How to list packages that have been installed since Raspbian?

To rebuild or duplicate a specific Pi's environment, it would be helpful to know what packages have been installed by the user. How can that be listed? dpkg --get-selections tells me _everything_, but is there a way to see what has been installed (or removed) since the Raspbian OS installation? (No,...
