Cannot load Kodi in Buster

Hi! I upgraded Raspbian to Buster but now I cannot launch kodi In the past, I followed this guide to run raspbian with console only (not lightdm) and I had a rule in rc.local to execute kodi as pi user (su pi -c kodi). Now I have a lot of errors executing kodi: Cannot connect to server socket err = ...

Where is apparmor by default?

One of the new features in Debian Buster was Apparmor. Since some years ago, we had it in repositories but now it is enabled by default. Since I had my first Raspberry I compile kernels by myself to include apparmor support (a lot of us use Raspberry as a small home server and SELinux, Apparmor or g...

Update Raspbian and Raspberry

Hi,

If I update Raspbian to last version 10 and I compile kernel, could I change my Raspberry Pi 3 to a Pi 4?
I'm about to receive it and I have a lot of software and configurations in Raspbian to clean install it.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Cannot boot from USB without SD card

So, for you, stop updating is the only solution? Then something isn't working correctly in Raspbian if things like this happen.

Re: Cannot boot from USB without SD card

Using /dev/sda to specify the boot drive is a bad idea. If you have more than one USB drive connected there is no guarantee the boot drive will be assigned the sda device. Using PARTUUID is the recommended (and more foolproof) way. You can find PARTUUID with this command. ls -l /dev/disk/by-partuui...

Apparmor on Rasbian Jessie

Hi, I have still a raspberry with Raspbian Jessie and an old kernel compiled with apparmor support. My question is, if I upgrade to the official linux kernel adapted for raspbian (using rpi-update command), will it now be compatible with apparmor? In the past the only way to have apparmor was adding...

Re: Booting from USB error

Setting a partitition as bootable (MBR) is a BIOS thing, the RPi doesn't have a BIOS, so it's 100% irrelevant. You MUST layout the partitions as documented here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/bootmodes/msd.md the GPU ROM can only boot from the first primary FAT16/FA...

Boot from USB - questions

Hi, I own a RPi3 with Raspbian installed in a usb pendrive, the microsd card makes RPi3 launch from the usb. I'm thinking about booting directly from USB to disconnect the microsd and use for another RPi (I own a RPi3, RPi2 and 2 RPiZero), I'm using a custom kernel (last 4.5 with some patches). rasp...
