Re: RPi 4 no video

Turns out the RPi 4 was unable to talk to my old monitor. Maybe not enough resolution? Anyway, works fine with a new high-res monitor. Would’ve been helpful if the specs of the 4 included this limitation.

RPi 4 no video

This must have been asked a zillion times, but I can’t find the answer. I have two RPI 4s and an SD card with Raspbian Lite. Watching LEDs, both seem to boot, but neither shows anything on my HDMI monitor. So, what’s the answer? Using HDMI0.

Re: USB disk size limits

Thanks, that's what I thought. I'm having trouble with a 1TB SSD that keeps winding up corrupted and was hoping for an easy answer.

USB disk size limits

Do the various Pi models have upper limits on the size of an external disk they can handle on USB?

Re: What happened to rpi-updater?

Ah, then the blog entry here:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/easy-firmwa ... om-hexxeh/

is incorrect, as it directs me to Hexxeh's site which makes no mention of rpi-updater.

sudo apt-get upgrade breaks Raspbian

If I take the current posted Raspbian and use it in my RPi 2, it seems to work ok. If I try to do sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade, lots of things and upgraded and then at least the Bluetooth manager GUI and the dhcpcd Gui stop working in OpenBox. What is the correct way to stay up-to-date ...

It is no longer available, as far as I can tell, from Hexxeh.

Update confusion

I'm a very raw n00b wrt Debian and Raspberry Pi. I got the impression that I could use aptitude to upgrade a Debian wheezy system to Raspbian wheezy (is that right?) by changing the content of the /etc/apt/sources.list file to that used by the Raspbian image. This doesn't work for me - something abo...

apt inventory?

Is there any way to get aptitude or apt to make a list of the packages already installed? I have a Wheezy system I've been working on and I would like to bring my Raspbian up to the same configuration. Keep notes? What notes? :-)

Board schematic?

Is there a schematic of the production Raspberry Pi board available anywhere? I'd love to know what the pins on the single row connector are without having to wade through the whole forum. Thanks.

SMBFS support?

Is there support availablefor mounting SMB filesystems in Debian for Raspberry Pi? I would like to access my NAS files stored elsewhere on my Pi. I haven't found anything obvious to me through Aptitude. Thanks.

Re: Java

I'm just starting to learn anything about the ARM architecture, so this may well be a stupid question - Do any of the JVM options available or pending make use of the Jazelle direct-byte-code-execution instructions? Thanks.
