iptables and docker container tagging by UID

Hi folks. I've been asking this everywhere and not getting any responses, and so this is my last hope. I want to use iptables to match based on UID for running container, and I’m using DSCP tagging for this (and I have configured the container to run as the user). But I’m afraid I don’t know ip tabl...

Sound works fine on the 3B+ with Ubuntu Mate 18.04. I just listened to "Locomotive Breath" by Jethro Tull :D I do not have a Pi 2. I do have a Zero and a Zero W but they run only Razpbian.

Re: No sound on Pi3b+

Can you confirm proper audio in ubuntu mate 18? Because I only get crackly, delayed, unreliable mono on my 2B on ubuntu 18 and over in their forums no one seems to care even though multiple people have reported this.

Re: Raspberry Pi3 Black screen + cursor (stuck)

Ok, so the problem seems to be that if you create an "autostart" file for the pi user, LXDE does not load a default one. (this is my guess). I got the idea from here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=207036 So, the fix that works for me is to create a proper autostart file that is ...

I'm having this same problem, and what I discovered is having an "autostart" file at all in /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/ - even if the file is empty causes this black screen problem. So remove your "autostart" file and you should be good. But I hope someone will come in and tell us how to use...

Screen blank but weird presentation

Hi folks

I have a pi 2 and SD that just will not activate my monitor or TV.
If I put the SD into a different pi 2, it works fine.
If i put a different SD and OS install into the "problem" pi it works too.

I don't understand what the commonality is here, can anyone fill me in?

thanks
