Could you explain what you mean by "raspberry pi microcontroller" and "raspberry program"?

That would be much appreciated. It needs to apply on top of the current stretch version.

Re: VLC version on Repository

They will never include OMX IL output supported version in the repo. Because omxil output does not work when gl driver is enabled. They will not incllude any app in the repo that does not work properly when gl driver is enabled. even they haved removed penguinspuzzle from the repo. We're not quite ...

Re: Is it Raspberry Pi a good board to learn embedded systems and all topics that a ES employer might care about?

At my university, students were steered away from arduinos, raspberry pis as well. You can accomplish great results without having to learn a single thing, which universities and employers wouldn't be impressed by. For example, you can take an arduino, copy/paste some example code together and accom...

Re: Dual boot of raspbian with pixel ( jessie and stretch )

Do you have a preference for retropie over recalbox? I think the path of least resistance is a new install of NOOBS + recalbox + stretch. Anything else would be quite a hassle.

Re: Dual boot of raspbian with pixel ( jessie and stretch )

If you're only using jessie for emulation, I'd suggest taking a look at recalbox. With NOOBS, you could install stretch and recalbox.

Otherwise, you could download the old jessie files from downloads.raspberrypi.org and add them to NOOBS yourself.

Note I'm doing this with a live USB stick - no install, so this is where I hit a slight problem
- the default live USB only gives 1.5GB persistence - so its Raspbian Lite only for now
It doesn't work on a live image anyway, since NFS doesn't seem to work with overlayfs.

Re: Raspbian Stretch: Wifi not starting on boot

Last reply, since I've really got to get to work. One of the problems with Raspberry Pi users (as distinct from users of most mainstream GUI based distributions) is that they seem to have an unreasonable fixation with setting static IP addresses, and thus need to know details of interfaces, and any ...

I would advise a centralized, public issue-tracking and resolution mechanism which is meticulously monitored and maintained by technical staff.

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

The idea is that fake-hwclock saves the time of shutdown and restores it on next boot to avoid this exact kind of thing. Maybe systemd-fsckd runs before fake-hwclock, so systemd-fsckd thinks it's 1970. If that's the case, the fix shouldn't be too difficult.

Might have something to do with fake-hwclock and the last time the disk was accessed. Will take a closer look later.
