Re: Differences Launching Program with "Sudo"

That's not the thing about the cloud that concerns me, It's putting my data on a server I have no control over, that doesn't make any guarantees about whether said data is backed up or secure, and that's operated by a company you don't know will still exist tomorrow. Then you assume that as it's in...

Try this:

Hmmm. I don't really understand the output. If I look in that file, I see lines with IRC Daemon Bin, and common file names in the directory. Do all of those system files have their own user?

Re: Differences Launching Program with "Sudo"

I ALWAYS use sudo to run pip3 or python3 -m pip as that removes the need to install packages twice or get more than one copy if a package is pulled in as a dependency. Ok. If you want the modules available to every user on the system without having to install them multiple times, use sudo. Thanks f...

Re: Differences Launching Program with "Sudo"

Thanks for your reply For example "pip" and "pip3" will install Python libraries in different places depending on whether run with sudo or without.

Differences Launching Program with "Sudo"

I was wondering why sometimes I get a different result in Raspberry Pi OS when I launch a program with "sudo" than I do when running it "normally." For example, if I launch w3m, it seems to keep a different set of settings, like it's storing the configuration files in a totally different place. Is t...

Re: Help with vc4-fkms-v3d FKSM issue

I don't think making a custom EDID will work for you either. You can read through the error codes I got, but it doesn't work; it's either ignoring my EDID, or calling it invalid and then hitting up modedb for a replacement. This is of course assuming that 1) you are trying to drive a display with a ...

Re: Playing Midi files from the command line

Your player needs to send the sysex patches before sending the MIDI file. You can't do it separately. The -e option is for Munt to write the sysex patches to a file. It isn't reading it. Ok. I suppose that I should have realized that because the -w switch writes a wav. I figured out how to do it in...

There's an easier way on the Pi. Put the edid file in /boot. Edit config.txt and add hdmi_edid_file=1 hdmi_edid_filename=edidfile.bin Or whatever your edid file is called. Yes! Thank you so much.

Unfortunately the way the mainline Linux kernel works a display edid is nigh on mandatory, or you need to jump through a fair few hoops to overcome it.

Re: Help with vc4-fkms-v3d FKSM issue

Thanks for the additional information. Check /proc/cmdline to see whether it has something appropriate. I just tested a ~240p modeline and /proc/cmdline shows this: video=HDMI-A-1:320x224M@60 Not sure what the "M" means, but there it is. Unfortunately it doesn't have full timings, only width/height/...

I am running a Pi4 via HDMI to a HDMI-VGA adapter. When I hook it up to the display and turn it on, the display boots to the splash screen, and I get the "first half" of the startup sequence. I believe this is before FKMS kicks in? I'm not 100% sure, but turning off FKMS allows the Pi to continue th...

To install

Hi, I am thinking about what storage option to buy for my raspberry pi 4. I am considering an NAS that can attach by either USB or ethernet cable.
