Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Well, I think you should copy anything you want off the Stretch installation, and then start with a fresh Buster install. I did that and the software works fine. Then you can copy things back over. You can't upgrade Stretch to Buster because the /boot partition is a much larger size on Buster and yo...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

As best I can tell, it will work if you are using Buster but not with Stretch with the latest update.

But this is a ZeroW with Stretch and has been for years. No attempt to go to Buster.

Paulv, I've tried your instructions a half dozen times with a Full Buster on a model 4 B and it isn't quite working (using the PARTUID).

I just loaded up an sd card with Buster Lite. Everything went well until I tried to set the keyboard where I got mostly gobbledygook characters (just black boxes). It managed to do language and time zone just fine, then went awol, so it looks like the language table is messed up somehow. Anybody els...

I just loaded Buster on a test system and Mathematica no longer appears in the software list. Has something changed with the licensing? This would be enough to stick with Stretch!

Re: crontab and DST issue

First, this problem occurred in two time zones, Eastern Daylight and Pacific Daylight, so I think the clue is in jojopi's response about cron subtracting the month without correcting for DST. I note that this only occurs in the spring when we move forward an hour. As far as I'm concerned, last-week ...

I have a job that runs at 3 minutes after midnight on the first of the month.

I just wanted to thank you for enabling BerryLan on a Zero W, it works great and enables a lot more inexpensive projects with field setup of the WiFi. Truly a great tool.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface automatic purge

Bob,
The automatic purging is no longer working, whether using % or fixed GB levels as criteria. The disk fills to the requested level but then stops recording anything else.

Yes, that sounds like the problem. I will try using Max Space in GB and see if that works. I had to rebuild the entire system it locked up so badly this time. Fortunately, that doesn't take too long.

Re: Configuring WiFi without LAN and/or laptop with BerryLan

BerryLan works great on the Model 3 but not the ZeroW. I've got embedded computers where having that capability on the ZeroW would really be great. I must admit I'm mystified why it doesn't work on the ZeroW but does on the 3.
