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

Hi, no, I didn't make any changes, nor set a static address. All I did was load the OS, load Domoticz & plug it in.

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

I think that should be..

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.

It's actually the netmask. /24 means 24 bit, which is the same as a netmask of 255.255.255.0 It's basically a more compact way to represent a single (!)...

Re: Whoopee cushion project

Not sure which pins you are referring to... The '2' in the code stands for GPIO2 (GP2 in the tutorial picture), not for pin 2 which is 5V power. Connecting 5V to ground would probably damage your Pi. But I would try @BGoodes suggestion first: does it work when you touch the croc clips together? If n...
