Re: RaspberryPi 4: heatsink or fan

Something like this ? https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/fan-shim Very much so! That is not SMBus am I right? Because you can read the fan speed or do other sh*t by using only one I2C bus and on address. There is no SMBus on the Pi. Although SMBus is of course just a very specific implementation of...

Thanks. There was nothing obvious that said "This is the driver the Pi 4 uses by default", so I wasn't sure which one it was. raspi-config also still says it is experimental - is this still the case on BCM283x?

New graphics driver: does it work on older Pi's?

Hi folks. Just a quick question about the nice new graphics driver for the Pi 4 - is there a similar new driver for the other models of Pi? I've installed Buster on my Pi 3B and from what I can tell it is still using the old driver. Is there a new one available for the Pi 3B, and other older Pi's, o...

Congrats on the new release! The upgraded graphics stack seems to be a bit snappier in my limited testing so far. One thing that is still missing though is something to control the screen saver. At the minimum there should be a tool to control how long it takes for the screen to go blank, and to dis...

Re: Raspberry in Tesla Model 3

When the Pi's USB port is operating in device mode, as it must do to be used as a mass storage device, you can only attach one thing to the USB port. Whatever you attach to the Pi's USB port when it is in device mode *must* be a USB host. In this case, that would be the dashcam. Your only option is ...

Re: How to span one volume across multiple drives?

I would personally go with btrfs, since this merges the filesystem with the volume manager, so should be easier to use. I have this set up using two old hard discs that were pulled from laptops because they were of questionable reliability. With btrfs I can use RAID 1 (mirroring) so it doesn't matte...

If it works OK on some ports but not others on the TV, that's a problem with the TV not the Pi which must be working correctly.
Seconded. Is there a reason you can't just plug the Pi into either HDMI 1 or 3?

No, the US uses a different system to us in the UK and EU. The TV Hat doesn't work there.

I would not use WoA as it’s very slow on the Pi and really only licensed for the Insiders testers in Windows and not for commercial use. If you are using VNC on the servers you can use the RealVNC viewer on the Pi. Failing that, try rdesktop Remmina or NoMachine Advantage of the latter is that you ...

Re: Cannot reliably set static IP address

Hmmm. It seems Pi-Hole installs dhcpcd if it is not already present on the system. Luckily this has not affected the reliability of my static IP address assignment. It seems if an interface is configured in /etc/network/interfaces, then this "claims" the interface and prevents dhcpcd from messing wi...

Re: Cannot reliably set static IP address

I decided to approach this from a slightly different angle and removed dhcpcd altogether. I then configured the ethernet interface using the "traditional" method using /etc/network/interfaces and all is working reliably. I'm slightly surprised nobody seems to have spotted this apparent bug before :o
