Re: Switch from Pi2 to Pi3 without a new install of Raspbian

Probably because Raspbian with Desktop auto mounts USB drives in /media. And since you forced it to be /media/usb it could not find it.

Re: GPIO IR remote

Seems to be a bug in triggerhappy. On a virgin install the udev rule loads, after a update/upgrade it fails with a SEGV error in thd-socket or th-cmd.

Re: udev rules

Turns out that after I updated/upgraded the virgin install it stopped working?! systemctl status udev says there is a SEGV. So, I'm guessing there is a systemic problem in the upgrades. Anyone....... There is nothing wrong with the operation, it runs on the CLI and as a cron job. I removed triggerha...

Re: udev rules

It runs once to load the remote control keytable.

I just tested a completely virgin install. The identical udev rule does run with an identical rc_maps.cfg. I even copied them over, still does not work.

Re: cant mount network drive

Systemd is the "preferred" way. I don't have any trouble with it.

One of the problems with fstab is if the network drive is not available you may get stuck at the boot screen.

When I installed ir-keytable it installed a udev rule that is supposed to run at boot. It does not. 70-ir-keytable.rules ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="rc", RUN+="/usr/bin/ir-keytable -a /etc/rc_maps.cfg -s $name" When I type the command in a terminal it works fine (substituting "rc0" for "$name"), in f...

Re: GPIO IR remote

Just so this doesn't end in a black hole like all of the others: it does not work the way it is supposed to and the remote files are in the correct format BUT have key names from a few versions of Kodi back (XBMC 12).

I just loaded a new install of Raspbian Stretch Desktop compiled 2018-06-27. The ONLY way to get a Hauppauge remote to work is to add the "dtoverlay=gpio-ir,rc-map-name=rc-hauppauge" to /boot/config.txt.

I don't know why that works, it should not; dmesg reports that it can't find /etc/rc_maps.cfg so it loads keymap rc-empty. I tried it without the files I added and it does not work, but the added files don't seem to change base behaviour. the edited keymap doesnt change anything. If I do the keymap-...

Go to the Teamviewer website for special install instructions.

Raspbian usually expands the file system automatically on the first boot. Or, sudo raspi-config > Advanced Options (7) > Expand Filesytem (A1).

Re: Unable to automatically generate hostname for raspberry pi

Maybe the problem is "must run as root"?

There is no root account in Stretch, unless you force it by setting a password and editing sshd.config.

I agree since I hate having to type in terminal. If the path is really long it gets to be a pain proof reading. Click and edit is much easier and you can easily keep the file in Notepad++ while you test it. I hate looking like a TV show Linux nerd touch typing a path at 80 WPM to edit a 2 line file ...

Re: USB Auto mount - Raspbian Stretch Lite [Solved]

The problem with using fstab is it won't boot if the drive is not plugged in first. The system gets stuck looking for it.

My bet is you forgot the 0 0 at the end of the fstab line.

usbmount seems to be the native fix on Lite. A lot of packages need to be installed, like samba, nfs, ntfs-3g etc.

No problem with Deluge here.

Maybe you mean when trying to use mapped Samba shares. That is documented, not a Raspbian problem, blame Samba/Windows. Just type the UNC path to the share.
