Re: Reboot raspberry pi and run a script after

Get the first part to check for a file on the SD card. If it’s not present, run the first part, create the file and do a clean reboot If it’s present, run the second part and delete the file Yep. I went for that idea. I just have a normal file with either ‘true’ or ‘false’ in and do whatever depend...

The xserver is what provides for a graphical interface, and gives you the desktop. You can't have one without the other.

However, you can have a minimal xserver which will load a single graphical program.
Ah, okay, How would I go about to install a minimal Xserver?

Re: How would I only boot into one program and not a full blown OS

Previously you wrote: I’d like to have all of the functionality minus the GUI. I don’t need a keyboard or mouse since I’m inputting data from my app through MQTT protocol, which is why I need internet. I just want to make it solely for that purpose and nothing else. But now you specify: my end goal...

Re: How would I only boot into one program and not a full blown OS

Hi, I'm doing this project and I'd like my raspberry pi to have all its features/drivers working, just not have a full blown UI as an OS. Like a bare minimum OS.

Re: How would I only boot into one program and not a full blown OS

You can boot a single program by putting its name on the kernel command line. The problem with that is you wouldn't have Wifi or Bluetooth, which the OP needs. I would suggest putting an entry in rc.local, but I see one of the other requirements is "access to the hardware and terminal", w...

Reboot raspberry pi and run a script after

Hi, I’m making an application in Python and my script runs some terminal commands via “os.system”. However, after them commands are run, the Pi needs to reboot to make the changes happen. I need to carry on running the rest of the script once the Pi reboots, how would I do that? Basically how do I c...

Re: How would I only boot into one program and not a full blown OS

Okay, thank you. I'd just like to have Bluetooth and Wifi functionality and for one single program to be run when it's booted up?
