Re: Unable to locate package python3-pifacedigitlio

The company that makes the board no longer provides .deb packages for the software. The recommended approach is to use pip3 to install it.

Re: New FREE Pi Games Released by Webfoot

I am guessing the issue is that ld is loading /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libGLESv2.so instead of libbrcmGLESv2.so.

You could create a symlink as a hacky workaround. I've also had luck with patchelf to fix similar situations:

Could you run this now and paste the full output of everything?

Re: Can't Install PHP / MySQL - php5-mysql : Depends: libmysqlclient18 but it is not installable

I've only left a comment letting them know what needs to be fixed. I am sure they'd appreciate an actual pull request that corrects package names. The instructions on setting up the database need to be updated too, since it no longer asks you to set a root password.

Looks right to me.

What's the output of 'apt-cache policy chromium-browser'?

You don't need to write to the /boot directory. You need to write to the boot PARTITION, which is the one which contains start.elf.

Re: wifi network passwords not saving

Just checked with Simon (the author of the plugin). Yeah, you should already have multiple network blocks in wpa_supplicant.conf, but if you change the network using the plugin, it will ask for the password each time. The plan is to get rid of that eventually. Until then, you can use 'wpa_cli -i wla...

Re: wifi network passwords not saving

You can use wpa_passphrase to generate a network block for /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. If you manually add all the network blocks you need, then the pi should connect to whichever network is available. https://github.com/raspberrypi/documentation/blob/master/configuration/wireless/wirel...

Re: STICKY: libmysqlclient18 has no installation candidate

Yes, but since it's possible that somebody actually wants to run php5 instead with your workaround, that would mess things up for them. I think it's best to find out why uninstallable packages which aren't in Debian are being included in Raspbian. As far as the learning resource itself goes, there s...

Re: STICKY: libmysqlclient18 has no installation candidate

LAMP stack up and running without libmysqlclient18.

The only other change to that resource should be that in order to log in as root, you have to run mysql as root. I added a new user for wordpress and it all just worked.

Re: STICKY: libmysqlclient18 has no installation candidate

Looks like the problem is here:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql -y
It should be:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install default-mysql-server php7.0-mysql -y
php5 should not have been included in stretch.

There might be other problems. Will let you know once wordpress is set up.

Which part of my reply is wrong? That seems like a problem with the learning resource rather than with Raspbian. Again, this is a change that was made in debian, and not by us. The instructions should be updated for mariadb. I believe there is a metapackage which installs the appropriate default pac...

That menu entry is hidden for a reason. That should be used to open .deb files, I am guessing. It's not meant to be launched directly.

Before that even. There should also be archived log files in that directory. It would be good to see when the problem first occurs.
