Re: STICKY: USB-MSD boot EEPROM fourth update - 2020-06-15

Just to follow up, swapped the reflashed cable onto the Pi 4 today and ran fstrim a couple of times, all looks good now!

Code: Select all

$ sudo fstrim -v /
/: 217 GiB (232999329792 bytes) trimmed

sudo fstrim -v /

Looks like I may have fixed the issue. Found a firmware and gave it a try and running trimcheck on Windows reports it looks like it is working: TRIM check v0.7 - Written by Vladimir Panteleev https://github.com/CyberShadow/trimcheck Loading continuation data from E:\trimcheck-cont.json...

Re: STICKY: USB-MSD boot EEPROM fourth update - 2020-06-15

Thanks all, I'll see if I can find any firmware and contact Inatek. Unfortunately these are the only adaptors I have found that fit my WB 6x6 enclosures (I use loads of them).

Yep, all present and correct as far as I can tell:

Re: STICKY: USB-MSD boot EEPROM fourth update - 2020-06-15

Hi all, so I believe I have done everything correctly as I am booting my Pi4 8GB from my SSD without any SD card installed. My adaptor cable is an Inatek, and lsusb reports it to be: Bus 002 Device 002: ID 174c:55aa ASMedia Technology Inc. Name: ASM1051E SATA 6Gb/s bridge, ASM1053E SATA 6Gb/s bridge...

Re: STICKY: The I2S sound thread.

Awesome news JeremyBirch66! Thank you for firstly confirming I was not going mad (I tried it 3 times!), but more importantly for the solution - I shall give that a try tomorrow :D

Re: STICKY: The I2S sound thread.

Hi all, I've tried searching but there is so much information in this, and other threads, I am completely confused! I have no experience with audio on Linux, and not that much (recent at least) experience with Linux fullstop! I purchased the Adafruit MEMS microphone, and have attempted to follow htt...

Edit: Oh I can't its locked! @jamesh could the changes made that you mention in the thread above, also effect the standard camera? Its driving me nuts, as it keeps being detec...

Purple "Noise"

Hi all, wonder if anyone can help. I've noticed that several of my cameras are exhibiting what I can only describe as purple noise, when in a dark environment. During day light hours they are fine, but soon as it becomes dark, they start to randomly flash purple (and sometimes red) noise. The attach...

Re: Is this the correct way to install the watchdog package?

This is what I do and as far as I see it works: - install raspbian lite, - apt-get install watchdog - edit /etc/default/watchdog and /etc/watchdog.conf Edit: - Fiddle with the watchdog systemd unit, otherwise it doesn't start. I think this is still necessary. Last message here: https://bugs.launchp...

Re: Is this the correct way to install the watchdog package?

Hi all, These seems to be one of the most recent and complete threads on the internet for the watchdog on the Pi. But I am still having problems and am still confused. Rather than rehashing what I have faced, I will simply ask the following: What, exactly, do I need to do, to enable the watchdog to ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

It may still be worth considering this as a user-definable option to "purge all files in media folder" at a later date. As an example, a while ago I created a script to generate low res/quality versions of the videos so that I could stream them to my mobile (over poor data networks) whilst still ke...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I'm having a problem running with motion detection on a Pi Zero and am wondering if anyone has figured out a fix - the problem is that the pi zero simply stops responding to anything on the network after a period of hours, requiring me to power cycle. I'd suspect some sort of resource exhaustion bu...

Re: Camera doesn't work while in case

I've had similar issues - all worked fine whilst on the desk, but when assembled in (home made) cases (using various techniques from double sided tape, to blu-tak) - the camera stopped working. I ordered replacements as I thought I had broken them, then found the "broken" ones worked again when not ...
