OpenVPN client connects but no internet access

Re: How to Multiple Values for same input in es_input.cfg

This is resolved. I used the ES controller config tool, and then looked into the temporary file it saves, and in there I saw that a "deviceGUID" value that was unique between the two controllers. I don't believe this carries over to the final es_input.cfg, so I manually put it in there, and now I ca...

How to Multiple Values for same input in es_input.cfg

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to assign two values to the same input on the same controller in es_input.cfg. I have two different USB controller adapters, a Sega Saturn, and a SNES. Both are recognized as "HuiJia USB GamePad" so they can't be differentiated in es_input.cfg. The issue I'm havi...

Re: shutdown process too abrupt? help w/ "samba daemons" (vi

This is resolved. I restored an old SD card clone that I had from last week, prior to installing Kodi or either of the switch scripts. As expected, the hanging at "Stopping samba daemons..." was no longer happening. So, I plugged in the Mausberry switch, and installed the alternate script (the one t...

Easiest and best is just to put a "#" character at the beginning of the line. That will comment it out. But to answer your question specifically, if you were going to remove the line, you would remove it in its entirety, including the ambersand. Ok, thanks. I commented out the line. Shutdown is sti...

Re: Mausberry switch shutdown process too abrupt? (video)

I looked at the setup.sh script and it does two things. Creates the switch script and puts that in /etc/switch.sh, and second it adds it to rc.local so it will start at boot. So you'll need to remove switch.sh from /etc/rc.local. You can leave switch.sh in case you want it later, it doesn't take ma...

Re: Mausberry switch shutdown process too abrupt? (video)

I.e., the logic is: 1) Issue shutdown command 2) Wait <N> seconds (say, N = 10) 3) Remove power Obviously, if something gets mucked up in the shutting down operation, power will be removed too soon. in a nutshell that's precisely what's wrong with the Mauseberry. They should have a way to test a GP...

Re: Mausberry switch shutdown process too abrupt? (video)

It sounds to me like the problem here is that the circuitry in the switch is just waiting a fixed amount of time for the shutdown to complete and then pulling the power. If the shutdown doesn't complete in the allotted time, then power is removed too soon. I.e., the logic is: 1) Issue shutdown comm...

Re: Mausberry switch shutdown process too abrupt? (video)

If that command didn't return anything that's a good sign. If you just pull the power without shutting down you will usually get a corrupt file system message on the following boots, due to not shutting down properly. That is good news. Thanks for the info. Although, I still suspect something is aw...

It may not be relevant but your wires connected to the gpio appear different to the advert you linked to. You only have one wire connected ? I have the "out" wire of the Mausberry switch wired to GPIO23, and the "in" wire to GPIO24. The wire you see in the video is actually the ground wire for the ...

Re: Mausberry switch shutdown process too abrupt? (video)

Was the activity LED still blinking when the power LED went out? You'll need to watch those to determine if it's killing the power too soon. A video of the RPi LEDs when you hit the switch would provide more information than a video of the display. Thanks for the reply. Here's a video of the Pi's L...
