Re: Please don't bundle / preinstall bookshelf in the distribution.

Speaking of Recommended Software I think it would be better to have this near the Bookshelf but labeled RaspberryPi Store, more modern and relevant wording for such things. There was previously an app store on the official Pi OS (can't remember if it was pre-Raspbian). The 'Recommended Software' ap...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 USB mass storage beta (beta means it not ready yet, and not officially released!)

At least it worked with my Alcey sata-usb3 adapter. I tried with an older Orico enclosure that I'd hoped to use in the final build, as the board inside is smaller, but no joy there. I also seem to have a problem with lsusb; the Orico enclosure isn't shown there. Perhaps it must have an SSD in it? O...

Re: Another RP4 failing to drive a screen via HDMI0 thread

Hi, can you do me a vavour and provide more details on your monitor? Googeling for DELL_U2412M gives the result this is a 1920x1080pixel resolution and has NO HDMI input (only DVI, DP and VGA).

Re: Another RP4 failing to drive a screen via HDMI0 thread

Can you try with a blank SD card, imaged with the latest version of Raspbian using the Raspberry Pi Imager from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/? Boot the Pi 4 with that card and only the Dell monitor attached - there's no reason why that should not work. If it doesn't, try different cables.
