Re: Pi3 Will Not Boot

Pin 1 measures 5.5 mV pin 2 is 5.05 V

Pi3 Will Not Boot

I have a Pi3 B+ which was working but now will not boot. I have downloaded a fresh Buster lite to my SD, the SD works in another Pi. Pin 2 on GPIO measures 5.05 volts. When I power it up the red led comes on but nothing else. Also the power supply works fine with another Pi. Are there any other fixe...

Re: Failed to start Backend server for 1-wire control

Sorry I had missed this post. I am running with a Sheepwalk adapter. A basic config file (/etc/owfs.conf) is ! server: server = localhost:4304 server: device=/dev/i2c-1 # for modern Pi's, very early ones use i2c-0 You can also test with a fake adapter with server: fake=10.053C8A010800,10.2AFE8901080...

Re: Failed to start Backend server for 1-wire control - Fixed

OK I think I have fixed it. Looks like my /etc/owfs.conf file was screwed up. I was expecting it to have the default file with the fake server, but that wasn't there. I deleted that and created a new one and it is working again.

Re: Cannot install pysftp

No it is Jessie lite, runs headless so no desktop stuff.

How can I upgrade to Stretch? I thought that
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
would do it, but just tried that and it is still Jessie
