Not sure which Pi you are using or what version of raspbian you have. I have a Pi 3 with the latest raspbian and MySQL is available, it;s about 150-200mb from what it looks like for me.

AFAIK that's normal when the package lists are up to date.
If there are updates you would see a 'Get' line

Is there a way to program config.txt to query the user for a certain parameter?
No.
You would have to ask the user after booting and the reboot to activate the new setting

Re: probleem met OS op microSD kaartje zetten

Welke software gebruik je om het image naar de SD card te schrijven?

IMHO het eenvoudigst is om Etcher te gebruiken (https://etcher.io/)
Downloaden en schrijven, that's it. Uitpakken is niet nodig

The previous post (where the word MUST is used) is nonsense.

I've never used SD FOrmettar thing and everything works fine. Clearly disproving that which was asserted.

So how do you reformat a card with more than one partition for example?

Re: Is my pi or RTL2832U broken? (usb_claim_interface error -6)

Most likely suspect is a power problem.
Both dongles can be power hungry.
Check with 'dmesg' for any error messages.

What model Pi do you have?
If it has a red power led then make sure it's on at all times.
Can you try the dongles in a powered USB hub?

Re: Omxplayer on LCD Display

How is your display connected to the Pi? HDMI, DSI?
Do you have a link for that screen?

The display parameter cannot be used with screens that connect through the GPIO (SPI, etc)
