Re: "sudo apt-get upgrade"

One odd thing is that the file manager is running as root in your case. Did you run 'sudo pipanel' ? There's no reason to run it as root, it's just 'pipanel'

Do you have sufficient free space on the card?

Code: Select all

df -h /

Re: Reliability Data

A bit of a duplicate post.

I don't think a forum is a valid source of information for a masters thesis and there's no authoritative information to answer your questions.

You'd need to grab a flir camera, mechanical drawings, a pi and start counting.

Re: "sudo apt-get upgrade"

I expected to see something going horribly wrong during the upgrade, but it looks okay.

Can you try running pipanel, going to the 'Defaults' tab and clicking 'Set Defaults' next to 'For medium screens:'?

Re: Prevent SD-Card Corruption

It's not quite that easy, since it's all set up for debian's kernel package. It will require either a long overdue overhaul of our kernel package or a fork of initramfs-tools. Possibly both since, If I recall correctly, initramfs-tools likes symlinks and our boot partition doesn't. It's all on the t...

Re: ffmpeg crashed video

Unless the program explicitly flushes the data to disk regularly, linux will cache it for a certain amount of time or until it uses a certain percentage of memory. The only solution I can recommend is to cleanly exit ffmpeg and do a clean shutdown. If I was to give a solution I wouldn't recommend, t...

How did you turn it off? If you just remove power, that's expected behaviour.

Hope this doesn't derail the thread, but I'd just like to suggest 'shellcheck', which is a brilliant tool that finds most of the mistakes people make in shell scripts, including portability issues.

Re: suggestion when setting up hostname in raspi-config

I don't see that happening, given the very niche use case.

There are many Windows tools to access linux partitions.
