card stuck wrong state, busy_detect 0xf00 did my SD card go bad? Is this recoverable?

My rpi4 which runs all manner of services and has a butt load of configuration and images on it (but all the data is on hard drives..) suddenly stopped being accessible. When I booted it to a monitor, I see "card stuck in wrong state! card_busy_detect status 0xf00 mmcblk0: recovery failed and so on....

Re: What kind of power supply to this USB 3 hub?

Thanks for weighing in gents. Ali doesn't seem to sell that model # with a PS that I found. I did find this power adapter that I think fits the spec. I didn't try powering this up just in case :) It does fit, but as you can see in the picture it sticks out a bit. Is this good enough? I'm not sure I ...

What kind of power supply to this USB 3 hub?

Hi, I bought this USB 3 hub, but unpowered, connecting it to 3 USB hard drives that are powered themselves drains too much power from my PI and things don't work quite right. I'd like to buy an AC adapter (or use one that I have kicking around) but I don't want to blow up my stuff. The voltage is no...

pi4 game streaming, steamlink, parsec

Hey folks I got a little extra time on my hands and I like to stream to my TV sometimes. I bought a pi4 thinking it'd work well but unfortunately they don't. Steamlink is a great proof of concept on the pi4, but overall the current performance isn't good enough. It hitches, drops the sound out every...

The webapp link is not dead. http://pinn.mjh.nz If you are just resizing (and not adding it deleting OSes) then you could do it with gparted. Ohh thank you.

sharing a bluetooth keyboard, without tearing hair out?

Hey folks So, as some of you might, I have several devices in the living room. Up until lately, I had kind of a mess of wireless mini keyboards and remotes that take each their own dongles. I got a little sick of that, so I thought maybe I can get everything to use a little bluetooth keyboard I have...

Hey folks I have several RTL8811au dongles and they are 5ghz and work great for pi's that don't have their own wireless. This driver has always worked really well.

for raspbian10/debian10 why not use zram-tools which is found in official repositories rather than zram-config ?

Anything to report on trying both options if you have?
