Re: Guide: Installation of *VANILLA* Debian 11 (or later) on a Raspberry Pi 4

The UEFI firmware is not yet compatible with the Pi 400 (a classic case of too new & not enough volunteers on the UEFI Open Source side), so that won't work. Thank you for clarifying this for me. Hopefully this will be sorted soon. This is my first Pi but I thought that generic/vanilla OS boot ...

Re: No HDMI output on RPi 4 (but it boots)

I purchased some micro HDMI to HDMI adapters for my Pi4B. With the Pi4B installed in a case, the monitor did not display anything because the micro HDMI plugs were not long enough to make proper contact with the connector on the PI4B board. The solution was to make the micro HDMI plugs on the adapte...
