Documentation for new raspi-config option?

I like the new layout (takes some getting used to) but I noticed a new Fan Control option under Performance, and can't find any documentation for it? Any pointers?

Issue reading a file while its being written to.

I am trying to write video data to a file.
I would like to be able to read the file while its being written to with something like VLC, but I get errors saying invalid file type.
(in effect something like 'tail')
Is it possible?

Re: Raspbian & pi-gen

Do I simply run a rm -rf on the folders, or can I actually run the apt clean, autoclean, autoremove -y comands?

Re: Headless system - Post install script

I've been using the pi-gen to modify the installs, remove pre-installed apps, install my apps, set up wifi, activate ssh, add scripts called by crontab, just about everything the post-install script would do. Just a few other niceties to correct, and I like the idea of handling it the same way ssh.t...

Raspbian & pi-gen

I have gotten the system to create an image modified to what I need, however I have been unable to figure out how / where to clean the apt/cache folders and purge, prior to creating the IMG zip file.

Re: RPi 3B+ green LED 4 fast blinks continuous but normal boot

Yay! <sorta 8-) > That cured the 4 rapid blinks.

Are there any docs for this, or to have the ACTIVITY light work as an ACTIVITY light? Which was the disk access indicator?

RPi 3B+ green LED 4 fast blinks continuous but normal boot

I have purchased a RPi 3 B+ from Element14. I have several of every other model made, so not a complete noob. I have noticed that it blinks rapidly 4 times, pauses, then repeats. I have checked it with SD cards and USB boot. I have used the 4/2018 and 6/2018 Raspbian Stretch & Lite images from this ...
