And that's not the only bloody command whose syntax the OS guys changed !!! If they want to add a new function, fine, with a new control character so it does not conflict, but don't drop or change stuff !!!
Then go and tell the 'OS guys'. You will not find them on this forum...

What exactly do they say? And please don't post a link to a random video...

BTW: do you see that dialog when in your VNC client (and which client do you use)? That would mean you're actually logged.
So what do you expect to see at this point?

is it just a matter of cpu loading during bring up of the VNC service?
Not quite. It has to start all the GUI / Desktop services and programs before it VNC can do it's thing.
That can indeed take a long time on a Zero

Re: Unable to Access Internet

You have 2 default routes for the same subnet. Did you try to set a static IP address? Did you make any changes to /etc/dhcpcd.conf and / or /etc/network/interfaces? The BT Homehubs I have seen so far use 192.168.1.254 as the gateway, so it looks to me that somewhere a gateway with IP 192.168.1.1 wa...

It's actually the netmask. /24 means 24 bit, which is the same as a netmask of 255.25.255.0

Well, I actually suspected interference from other software.
GPIO2 is also used by i2c, and I don't know what happens if it's activated. That's why I suggested moving to GPIO17

Instead of just saying 'it doesn't work' give us something to go on, such as (error) messages.
Redirect stdout an stderr to a file. Something like

Code: Select all

command >/home/pi/output.txt 2>&1
Also post your systemd service file.
