Re: Removing Arduino from the Raspbian repos?

It's pulled in from the Debian repo and isn't something we have control over.

Re: GStreamer and omx encoding from live source.. a naive problem

This is probably an incomplete answer, since I don't know what it's trying to do with EGL, but there shouldn't be a '/opt/vc/lib/libEGL.so' on Stretch.

Re: Raspberian has a buggy version of GPIO

Code: Select all

pi@test-zero:~ $ gpio -v
gpio version: 2.44
The output of 'apt-cache policy wiringpi' would help. I am guessing OP is not running Stretch.

Re: How to turn PIXEL back into LXDE?

Thanks everyone for the replies. Really it just felt like some of the default LXDE configuration options seemed to be missing, I thought perhaps it might be a simple matter of editing a couple of files given how modular LXDE is (one of the reasons why I like it). I assume all the applications insta...

Re: Raspbian Stretch 2017-11-29 performs always intensive disk check when booting w/o network.

I think 'sudo journalctl' should show all the relevant information - why fsck is running and how long it takes.

Oh, interesting. By the sounds of it, we can just remove fake-hwclock altogether, since we're already using systemd-timesyncd in stretch.

Re: Is update / upgrade secure?

Here's how apt ensures that your downloads are secure: Your system has some public keys pre-loaded on it. Package lists are signed using one of those keys and also contain checksums for all the files. If there's a problem, apt lets you know. The only problem is that it's easy to ignore those warning...

You can add a desktop pager to the panel and increase the number of available desktops either by using obconf or by editing the openbox config file by hand.

You can generate a list of URLs to download everything you need. Do this from the pi: https://askubuntu.com/questions/168352/how-do-i-generate-a-package-download-list The only problem is that if the pi has no internet connection, you won't be able to run apt-get update and it won't know what the lat...

Re: please provide a x86_64 version of your: "Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop"

The plan is to release a 64bit version when I get a chance. It's just not at the very top of the todo list. It would finally address a few open issues: - It would satisfy those who want to run a 64-bit OS and software, because their processor can. - It would ascertain whether or not 64-bit offers p...

Re: please provide a x86_64 version of your: "Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop"

Not sure if there are any technical reasons why we haven't released a 64bit version, there might be. I suspect its more to do with the amount of time we would need to spend maintaining it, especially since its not really on our main dev path. I'll try and find out.

If you're suggesting you can change the password without knowing the current one, this doesn't quite make sense. / would already be mounted rw, so that wouldn't do anything (and would need to run as root). If they're running passwd as user pi, then it would ask for the current password. If they're r...

Not sure what you mean. Are you asking why the newer and better models don't also cost less? The target price is $35 and the hardware engineers try to get as much into that price point as possible. The price of older models has come down - B+ is cheaper than 2B, which is cheaper than pi 3. The jump ...
