Re: RPi4 chargers

(...) So my question is still unanswered, how can I know if a power supply/charger/adapter would work with the RPi4 without opening the box and trying it out? (...) Actually, it is super easy as the charger itself is not at fault, it's the cable: just don't use an e-marked cable as it's built-in in...

Re: 4.19 kernel 64 bit support - please report issues here

Sounds great, thank you to all! – Any workaround for the dreaded lack of libcurl3 in Buster which is a hard dependency for Mathematica's Wolfram-Engine?

Re: Cloning PI SD cards - dynamic sizing

Happy to hear that you’ve found a solution.

On my Mac, I’ll just create a compressed image in Disk Utility to safe some space, albeit the other challenges remain.

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

Agreed, Wi-Fi performance is a challenge in my 3B+ and, if used before, one has to remember to uncomment the fake driver with #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d in /boot/config.txt to avoid the hang; other than that, everything else seem to work smoothly and fast, thank you!

pi-packages requires enabled user root

The pre-installed gui package pi-packages requires an enabled user 'root' and does not work with admin users; I do not want to enable root.
Or am I doing something wrong? – Thanks!

Re: How to access the Pi off another computer?

You can simply SFTP into it; use VNC (like RealVNC) as display channel, so you don't need a physical display and have everything on you Mac, which is what I do. – With a bit of adjustment in the Pi's VNC settings, you can even use macOS' own Screen Sharing from /System/Library/CoreServices/Applicati...
