Re: From raspberry pi 3 to pi 3 B+

I’m using raspbian They're not mutually exclusive, but I'll assume you're using Raspbian without NOOBS. Debian Linux 8.0 That sounds like Raspbian Jessie, which is not maintained by us. You'd have to take a backup and upgrade to Stretch first. It may be safer and faster to start from a clean Stretc...

3. A bug has been fixed in the firmware that was preventing a reboot from working. The fix hasn't reached the Raspbian firmware package yet but can be downloaded using "rpi-update".
It should be in apt, I snuck it in last week.

Re: Stretch: clean-up after package upgrade or remove

I'd say both, but you don't have to run them each time you remove a package. apt-get clean removes the .deb files which were downloaded but are not currently installed. This only saves space. If you run 'apt install' instead of 'apt-get install', the .deb is deleted automatically. apt-get autoremove...

Re: GUI changes not being saved

I was thinking about this earlier and thought it might be better to add a setting in /etc/default/ or a file like ~/.dont_touch_my_stuff that the ui-mods package would check for before making the change.

To help understand what happened, could you post your /var/log/apt/history.log? The fix may be to run "sudo apt install raspberrypi-ui-mods", but it would be good to figure out what happened.

Re: Docker: Missing overlay support in kernel

I'd guess that it's available as a module, but the module for the running kernel has been removed when you ran dist-upgrade. A reboot after the upgrade would fix that.

Re: raspberry clones

Although, the similarities don't extend far beyond the form factor and product name. To be fair to the (attempted) competition, I've seen quite a few boards that claim GPIO compatibility to the Pi. So many, in fact, that I think the RPF has created a de facto standard for 40 pin GPIO layout. Absolu...

There are no Raspberry Pi clones, but there are attempts at similar hardware. Although, the similarities don't extend far beyond the form factor and product name.

Yes, Windows doesn't tend to acknowledge existence of non-MS filesystems. It looks like the card was properly imaged.

Thanks, Mike.

Simon has just pushed out an updated version of rpi-chromium mods, which doesn't try to load flash on pi zero. That should make Chromium work again.

I've mentioned it and I think the answer is that chromium is not supported on the zero. You may have better luck with epiphany or firefox.
