This is great but is only 1GB is there an updated version that does not suffer from the 1gb problem and can see 3072 + working USB ports?

Re: Ubuntu 19.10 for the Raspberry Pi 4 with a KVM-enabled kernel & Windows 10 guest

I have to say I was very excited to see this post. My two favourite things, raspberry pi and Ubuntu. However I cannot get the image to complete a first boot. All looks good until it gets to installing new bcm2711-rpi-4-b.dtb then it hangs and does nothing. I left it for a good half an hour JIC it ne...

Re: Processing 3 is running for the first time on a Raspberr

Hi I tried downloading the image file and burning to a sdcard. I used 2 different sdcards both known good. There are errors on the image that stop booting. Maybe something is amiss with the build.

Tried the last 3 days images.

Re: Processing 3 is running for the first time on a Raspberr

Hi,

I was wondering if this driver can be used for a Rpi B+ Rpi 2 Jessie based Mate desktop system. For general HW Accelerated graphics on applications such as OpenCPN?

Many thanks

it would be great to have a 'Install Default pi User" option in the installer-config.txt file and have a pi user created as the default user added to sudoers and added to all the usual groups and disable root login etc. Some of that is being worked on in the 1.1 branch (https://github.com/debian-pi...

My objective is to start from a minimal Pi B+ 2 Jessie system and build up from there. There is a workaround for that, but you would need a Pi B/B+ 1 (which you seem to have): Install the minimum jessie system on a B/B+ 1 using the installer Install and run rpi-update to get the firmware/kernel nee...

Re: raspbian-ua-netinst - Raspbian unattended netinstaller

OK, many thanks for this. It seems a bit crazy to release the B+ 2 and not have a native kernel that supports it from the RPIF with Raspian.

I will give it a shot and post back results.

Re: raspbian-ua-netinst - Raspbian unattended netinstaller

I have used this script before with great success to install minimal B+ devices and posted here on other issues.

Can I use this installer to install a minimal Jessie install on B+ and Pi 2 ?
What changes would I need to make to the configs ?

Re: X starts at boot after upgrade to Jessie

Just wanted to say many thanks for this post, as I had been banging my head trying to get Jessie to boot to the command prompt.

Do you happen to know the reverse command to get it to boot the desktop automatically after disabling it with:

sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target
