Re: Change where fake-hwclock saves

Sorry for bringing back an old post but I found it while searching online trying to do the same thing as the OP but none of the responses addressed the issue. I found a solution though and since this is still relevant to those setting up a read-only filesystem I wanted to add it in case someone else...

Re: rpi 4 w/ noir camera v1.3 no night vision

Yes, it was this one https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XTP23LH/ It uses the same camera as the noir v1.3 so I assumed they were similar enough.

Independently from the IR leds on the camera itself I have an IR lamp that I tried shining at the camera and it did not register that either...

Re: rpi 4 w/ noir camera v1.3 no night vision

Sorry for the incorrect term... This is with an IR lamp on, even shining it directly at the camera doesn't change the image, its just dark, like what you would expect with the regular camera at night. With normal lighting the image is fine.

Thanks!

I was able to change it so that it would work the default 169.254.x.x address that my laptop gets assigned:
