Re: can't find /var/www directory

I didn't have /var/www by default on Stretch either. Just ran

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y apache2
and it got created.

Is there anything you need it for ?

If you want to create it just run:

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /var/www

Re: pygame set_volume no longer working on raspberry pi

I haven't used pygame before but this looks like you're changing the state of two different objects, _snd and channel whereas maybe you have to change the state of just one of them

Re: What is commanding this .py to run?

Also, the reason it's running as root from rc.local is because rc.local file is executed from systemd service which runs as root

Re: Xbox one controller setup

That's alright, hmmm... not sure why you're having trouble with apt perhaps installation from source will work ?

Instructions here:

Code: Select all

Otherwise if I were you I would see if installing the latest Raspbian, Stretch, solves the apt problem
