Re: Help? was: Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

A little help please, as I am stuck. I tried several (read that a lot) times to update my eeprom and I am stuck in some sort of limbo. I ran rpi-update. I copied the files from git to my /boot directory. I tried to copy everything over the a USB stick that had a fresh version of ROS on it. That did...

I just wonder how to make the vnc server start and run properly if there is no local user logged in on the unit (a headless machine)?
Maybe what I wrote in post #10 of this thread will help you

Re: Fixing the Pi 4 usb C issue by hand

After my initial response to the opening post of this thread, I got to thinking... rather than desoldering the entire USB-C connector, why not just lift one of the CC pins from it's PCB pad. WARNING!!! I'm not advocating anyone actually try what I'm about to describe. This is not for the faint-of-he...

Re: Fixing the Pi 4 usb C issue by hand

I think I remember reading somewhere that the circuit board trace that would need to be cut runs beneath the USB-C connector. Thus, the connector itself would need to be unsoldered from the board in order to effectively make the change. I'll try to see if I can dig up the source. EDIT: It was in the...

Re: RealVNC server in virtual mode - Enterprise license required?

I think the confusion here is over what vncserver-virtuald does. It is a service which manages VNC virtual mode sessions - the idea being that you connect to the service (usually on port 5999), login using your system credentials, and it will connect you to your VNC virtual mode session. If you don...

Re: RealVNC server in virtual mode - Enterprise license required?

Well, since it seems the RealVNC-supplied vncserver-virtuald.service systemd service configuration seems to require an Enterprise license.... I created my own systemd service configuration to start a vncserver in virtual mode. Here's what I did.... Create file /usr/lib/systemd/system/vncserver-pi.se...

RealVNC server in virtual mode - Enterprise license required?

I'm running my RPi 3b+ in headless mode (in other words, no physical monitor connected, and raspi-config'd to boot to CLI). Thus, I have configured VNC server to start in virtual mode as follows; sudo systemctl enable vncserver-virtuald sudo reboot Upon rebooting the RPi, I can see that there is a '...

Re: Pi cluster for kubernetes

Oh geeeze, ya... I totally missed the implication that a cluster dictates a particular style of case. I've built plenty of kube clusters... not one of them pre-req'd a particular kind of case ;-) Ok, Ok, Ok...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

I've got a Miuzei [*1] acrylic case with a little built-in fan. It is a very nice little case, and the little fan works REALLY well. Idle temps are 40C. I've been running 30 minute tests using ' stress -c 4 ' and so far the fan easily keeps the peak temps at just under 60C Ambient temps are 24C. In ...
