Re: No bootcode.bin only USB boot on new 3B+ ?

No official word from the usually helpful RPF folks here. However, since it has been confirmed by multiple people I think it's pretty safe to say that bootcode.bin-only USB boot is not supported by the new 3B+ model. What's unclear is whether or not that was by design. It's not by design. I think t...

I am having the same problem. I can't install the hostapd package (package not found). I've tried

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
but neither solved the issue.

Is there something else I can try?
What's the output of 'apt-cache policy'?

Re: Cmd window max size

Set a larger screen resolution in Raspbian. Maximise that terminal window. Use new lines (conventionally, if a line is over 80 characters it may be a good idea to break it into smaller ones).

Thanks, exactly what I need. I have a Pi 3B and for no reasons, Wi-Fi drops regularly.

Just in case, I want to to do the same for the 3B+ and I am going to use ip link command as you ...

You can do it. You can start it in the background, sleep for the necessary amount of time and then kill the backgrounded job.

Re: 2048 bit RSA too quick to generate?

Don't know how they're generated, so just taking a guess, but perhaps the VM didn't have enough entropy whereas actual running hardware did? Isn't that a common problem with generating keys in VMs?

Re: how to increase fps in raspbian-streach

I'd say don't use the experimental driver, since it doesn't sound like you need it. Look into using picamera and feeding data from that to opencv and back. Profile where the bottlenecks are and optimise what you can.

Other than that, there's not enough information to provide a solid answer.

Also, although the firmware that runs on videocore is closed source, the userland libraries to talk to that firmware are open.
