Re: LineageOS

As soon as I insert it into my Pi 3 and plug it in, the graphics test rainbow image appears, so I'm assuming that it's working.But then after that it just goes immediately to a black screen. Is this supposed to happen or am I doing something wrong? Please help! https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/vi...

Re: Batch programming or Startup file list or equivalent.

Now on Windows you have "PowerShell" (you see the word "shell" appearing on Windows too).
