Re: Buster on Pi 4 rngd logging

Could you post the full log entry line (minus any personal info)? I guess we could tweak the rsyslog filter but we would need to know exactly what to filter for.

Re: eth0 not initialized properly on startup/after reboot

I have seen problems in the past even with good power supplies (5.1V/2A) due to low-quality USB cables. Sadly also the USB Micro connector on either side (RPi and/or cable) can wear off with time and lead to increased voltage drop at power spikes. Being very short you do need more sophisticated equi...

Re: Buster on Pi 4 rngd logging

I may have solution for the rngd logs.. we can have rsyslog have them write in a dedicated log file (say /var/log/rnd.log): generate a /etc/rsyslog.d/rng.conf # redirect rngd output on Raspberry Pi Buster # distribution into /var/log/rng.log to # avoid cluttering /var/log/syslog # redirect all messa...

Re: raspberrypi-bootloader (1.20190925-1) upgrade fails: /boot too small

thanks for the clarification.. I read about discouraging direct upgrades but I tried on a non-essential system without problems a few weeks ago so I felt safe. Definitely my mistake.. For those of my systems which did the upgrade but have not rebooted yet: any hints how to roll back the changes alre...

We've strongly tried to discourage people from upgrading for this exact reason.
What exactly do you mean? Upgrading from stretch to buster?

raspberrypi-bootloader (1.20190925-1) upgrade fails: /boot too small

I tried to update my existing RPi3 systems (buster distro, latest upgrades) to raspberrypi-bootloader (1.20190925-1) via sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade and it fails with the message: dpkg-divert: error: cannot copy '/usr/share/rpikernelhack/start4cd.elf' to '/boot/start4cd.elf.dpkg-divert.tmp':...

Re: Raspbian, Raspbian-lite and NOOBS - Feb 2017 release

Ah, now I get it.. my knowledge is pretty much what you described (either check manually or let tools check for the existence of the file).

I guess my real question would be: how to check in general if a reboot is required after an upgrade?

Re: Raspbian, Raspbian-lite and NOOBS - Feb 2017 release

I am not sure if I understand your question. I thought that in standard Debian distros

/var/run/reboot-required

is an empty file which acts as a notifier to the admin to perform a reboot when required. But bear with me.. I consider myself a Linux noob..

Re: Raspbian, Raspbian-lite and NOOBS - Feb 2017 release

Having updated my system with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-update
I was asking myself how to determine if a reboot is required. Normally one would check if

Code: Select all

/var/run/reboot-required

exists. However, despite the recent kernel update (which needs a reboot) this file is non-existent. Any 'proper' way to check?

Re: Debian ARM on Raspberry Pi

DUH! Thanks for the heads up.. this seems to fix it! This dongle was the most obvious choice as it is really tiny so I would have expected somebody else to use it.

I should use the search function more often.. mea culpa!
