Re: How can i upgrade a pi3 SD card to pi4?

I had a RPi 3 booting from the SD, but with the main OS on a USB HD. (I.E. /boot was the SD, / was the HD). Here's how I replaced it with an RPi 4: Edit /etc/apt/sources.list replacing "stretch" by "buster" Edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list replacing "stretch" by "buster" sudo apt update sudo ...

Pi 4 arrived today. Unplugged Pi 3 having upgraded it to buster, swapped over disks, added a few cable converters, and it fired up fine first time, running my website! Excellent!

Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20

One quirk I noticed on upgrading - it left php7.0 there, as well as installing php7.3. I had to manually set up apache2 to use php7.3 instead of php7.0, then remove all of the php7.0 stuff.

Thanks for the help. All working OK now I fixed the missed stretch->buster change, and reinstalled the fbturbo module.

Ah, OK, found I had failed to edit
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list
to also use buster

Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20

Trying further to fix the fbturbo missing problem:
Trying to install xserver-xorg-video-fbturbo fails as it says it has an unmet dependency of xorg-video-abi-23

I suppose I should mention my system has an official RPi touchscreen.

Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20

Just tried upgrading an RPi B3+ to buster, as a preliminary to replacing it with an RPi 4.
It basically worked, except startx fails, basically complaining that it cannot load module fbturbo.
Any suggestions as to how to fix that?

Re: Raspbian Stretch 2017-11-29 performs always intensive disk check when booting w/o network.

I have the same issue, and it is causing me serious issues. My Pi is being used as a server, with a 1TB disk on it. The fsck takes a very long time, so the server is unavailable for up to 15 minutes after a reboot. This needs resolving.

Re: USB boot now working on Pi3

If I have 2 USB drives, is there a way to specify which one is used as the boot drive (the other one is used for backing up the boot drive, so both are bootable...)
