Re: STICKY: TUTORIAL: Build the #1 Image Viewer – Automatically in 3 Minutes!

:D Hey Rpi_Mike, Just a note of appreciation from a geezer with memory issues: I just got caught up in the update/upgrade from Stretch to Buster resulting in black screen. Ended up following your “Nuke” advice and reflashed micro-SDHC and SSD with Buster, put in HawaiianPi’s hdmi cure even though it...

Re: STICKY: TUTORIAL: Build the #1 Image Viewer – Automatically in 3 Minutes!

I was having the devil's own time trying to get this to work. Luckily my new RPi3B+ arrived and I put it together with a corded keyboard and it worked perfectly. I switched to the wireless keyboard and discovered the right click key had issues. After full nuke and using rm -r Feh_Build 3 times, I fe...

Re: REVIEW: X850 mSATA SSD storage expansion board

Is the Canakit 5V 2.5A power supply adequate to power the X850 with a 128 Gb SSD?

Re: REVIEW: X850 mSATA SSD storage expansion board

I got the Geekworm x850 mSATA interface board and a 128 Gb mSATA SSD. I found that the USB bridge is labelled x800 v1.3. While reading in the forums, I came across a post that said the 800 bridge was bad and needed to be replaced with a newer version. Now I can't find the post. Any suggestions?
