Are other changes retained? If you just place a file on the sd card, is it still there after you reboot?

Re: Something missing or something missed?

Usually somebody posts on the forum that there's a new image well before the blog post about it goes live. Often before it's even finished uploading.

Re: Pi 3 A+ Raspbian compatibility

You will need at least 2018-10-09. You should be able to upgrade the firmware, without having to download and flash a newer image.

Re: Raspbian lite not updating

Could you please give the exact error message and where you've got 'sudo apt-get install update' from? That command would tell apt to install a package named 'update' which doesn't exist. If there is documentation anywhere telling you to do that, it should be corrected.

Re: Raspbian stretch lite

That's not the BIOS, you're in. The next command you enter will depend on what you want to do.

If you were after full desktop rather than the command line, you should start with the full Raspbian image, not Raspbian Lite.

Re: RISC OS now under the Apache 2.0 Licence

I see that RISCos is a desktop. It's a whole OS, not just a desktop. How does it compare to Raspbian? They are alike in the sense that they are both operating systems. That's probably where the similarity ends. Does it have driver support Some, but don't expect wifi and other random USB devices to ...

Re: Raspbian footprint

Depends on what you're running.

The desktop with just a terminal window seems to be using around 115M.
Without the X server running, around 45M is used.

Re: Java future on ARM

Before you go down any more rabbit holes, are you sure OpenJDK 10 doesn't already have the features that you want? When I updated to OpenJDK 10, I was told it's because it uses the Java instruction set on the ARM, which was formerly locked down. It kind of sounds like that's what you were looking for.

Re: will the raspberry pi get free software cpu?

So it is a pity if any hard feelings related to this have any effect on future plans. Again, the way it was done properly later (QPU documentation released in 2014, Eric's work until now) is proof that it works and is worth the effort. Or do you think you are also getting endless abuse for that? To...

Re: Can't update rpi.gpio due to dependencies?

To address the actual issue, it looks like apt-get is treating "rpi.gpio" as a regular expression and pulling in stuff it shouldn't. You already have the required packages installed and up to date. It looks like you have a typo in your python code. Instead of this: RPI.GPIO You should have this: RPi...
