Re: algorithms and ethics at the Barbershop

I also have been on a jury - in my case it was rape. That must have been awful. Although the case I was on was messy and confused, I'm glad it wasn't rape. Due to sickness there were only 11 of us on the Jury at the end. Nine of us thought based on the evidence that was provided that the accused wa...

Re: Variable framerate

Hi, I have stumbled onto this forum and was looking at using a Raspberry Pi to connect to my cine projector, as I have over 100 films I want to digitize. I would appreciate it if you could tell me what projector you are using and the software you are using too. I'm not sure that I can help you here...

I recall lusting after an Archimedes at the time. No way I could afford it. To this day I have never seen one in the flesh. I got a big trade discount on mine.

Re: algorithms and ethics at the Barbershop

Have you tried "sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt" or sda6? You won't be able to do both at the same time as only one partition can me mounted at any one location (well, there are ways, but that's not relevant here). If you create mount points for both then you should be able to mount them and see them. sud...

Re: Pi TV Hat questions

So why the conflict? Any ideas out there? HATs are not intended to be stackable. In particular the EEPROM that is used to automatically load configuration will be at the same I2C address on both cards, and therefore neither will be readable. As you've found, you can achieve the same thing by manual...

Re: Raspberry pi 3 b+ wrong kernel with armv6l

it may be hard to swallow, but I think the most likely answer is that you don't actually have a 3B+, but instead have a 1B+. One way to check on Raspbian is to see what cat /proc/device-tree/model ;echo says For a Pi 1B+ it will be "Raspberry Pi Model B Plus Rev 1.2" For a 3B+ it will be "Raspberry...

Without the help of DHCP, establishing a guaranteed working manual static IP address for a host requires the talent of a mind reader. Unless you are the admin of that network,
Pretty much everyone with a home router is the admin of their network, whether they realise/understand it or not.

Is there any specific reason you need 10.4 instead of 10.3 right now? Missing features, or something like that?

I know that the "supported/approved answer" to this sort of thing is to "do it in the router" (as the last few responses attest), but the problem with that is that the reason people want to use static IP in the first place is because they either can't use or don't trust the DHCP server.

241,
Is you goal to physically or logically remove wifi/bt?
If the latter, it can be done by disabling in /boot/config.txt.

Code: Select all

#dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi
#dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt
But you'd need to remove the "#" from the start of those lines, or they will do nothing.
