Re: rpi-update overwrites itself

https://www.githubstatus.com/incidents/8x69vj1xyp9v

Yeah, so rpi-update tries to update itself and overwrites itself with the returned 500 response.

We'll have to fix it within rpi-update itself so that it doesn't happen again and then push it to apt to overwrite the corrupted version.

Re: Where can I get the size of the pool/main?

Do you want the size of everything or just stuff that's referenced in dists/? We don't remove old versions when upgrading packages, so there's a ton of stuff that's not actually used.

As a result, the first boot will take a long time, so don't worry if you just see a black screen for a while.

Re: "apt-get update testing to stable" [FIXED]

Because the archive.raspberrypi.org repo hasn't updated buster to stable yet. I plan to do that just before the next image release to avoid the situation where the first run wizard doesn't work again as a result.

Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20 / 07-10

Thank you. How then can we tell if we have the correct firmware? Can't see any reference to d2b1b7fb01475cb3914b2086299e32d724e832f1 on github. There is no mapping between the internal git hash and anything public. It's just for internal use. You can run something like this: $ zcat /usr/share/doc/r...

The git hash you get from vcgencmd version is from the internal source repo for the firmware, not the pre-built firmware. The git hash in the changelog is for the public builds on github in raspberrypi/firmware.

Re: Video lags in VLC (Raspbian Buster) in Raspberry Pi 2

The file is fine for the purpose it's meant for. The program in the directory demonstrates the pi's ability to decode h264 data. That's all it is and that's all it does. Its not meant to be played by other media players. There is no issue to report.

Re: Video lags in VLC (Raspbian Buster) in Raspberry Pi 2

The short version is that it's a bad file. A 'real' .mkv file (for example) will work.

Re: Video lags in VLC (Raspbian Buster) in Raspberry Pi 2

Not a bug then, just a change in VLC's behaviour. That file is just a video bitstream without a container, so VLC has no FPS information, causing that stutter. If you stick it into a container, it should play as it did before.

Are you using the .h264 file in /opt/vc or a proper download of Big Buck Bunny from somewhere else?

Re: I dont get it... Why is everyone from science schools so obsessed with Perl and Python when we got C?

To answer OP's question, it's because RAM and performance are irrelevant for that use case. Numpy is mostly written in C and can use BLAS Most BLAS implementations will take full advantage of NEON and are extremely fast. and efficient. If you spend most of the time chewing through data in C, it does...

Just a +1 that I've noticed this as well, but didn't check whether it was an issue with the drive or the pi. I haven't seen it since switching to btrfs.
