Re: PIXEL FOR PC AND MAC

is it possible to change the fstab file to automount my win7 drives?? I guess what I'm asking are all system files read/write?? If I change a file,say .bashrc, will the change persist? I think that's how you spell it. And yes I am indeed a noob!! Actually I'm an old noob.

"old" root filesystem

First, I moved my root file system to an usb harddrive, no problems with that. But, now I have a root filesystem on the sd card that's pretty useless. What I am wondering is, is it possible to rsync from the usb hd to the "old" root filesystem, and use the "old" as a backup to the usb hd?? I think I...

Re: Copy/clone SD Card using WIndows 7

not ALL sd cards are 4gb in size.............even a little less then 4gb will cause DI to halt.

best use an 8gb sd card, boot the Pi, use raspi-config to expand the partition to 8gb.

actually 16/32gb sd cards are "cheap", go with the largest you can afford.

Re: autologin

This is horribly unsecure but will work. Use a command line like this to start putty: putty -pw <password> <user>@<host> e.g. putty -pw password [email protected] On windows, edit/create a shortcut to putty as required. Do not do this on a computer you don't have secure access to. ok now this works!! since ...

Re: command line prompt config

I think if you look at the pi account .bashrc/.profile files you will see the color prompt details. basically you will be editting the PS1 eset.
