That doesn’t work for me.

If it was meant to produce a new version of .local it didn’t. Can see .oldlocal so did do move correctly.
OK, will see what else we can come up with. Not sure if it is meant to produce a new .local folder.

Re: All icons and menu items missing after update

Suggestion:

move the .local folder in your user root folder to somewhere else as a backup.

e.g.

cd /home/pi
mv .local .oldlocal

Restart

Re: How far in the boot process can the camera be used?

I didn't mean to make it really bare metal, I do plan to use the Linux kernel. My question was, after loading the kernel (perhaps a lean kernel), how far in the init scripts would be a safe place to put raspistill ? Probably best not in the baremetal forum then.... As for when, I doubt anyone has e...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 as Wifi hotspot - Works then dies

Would you mind sharing your cron process for that? How can you detect if something is connected or not? And I think I've found the reason for mine. My work will kill unknown hotspots/wifi signals. Apparently they are doing it to this one. I took it home and it worked fine for the weekend. Now that ...

The main difference in the CPU's is the ARM cores - which are documented by ARM themselves - the rest of the documentation for the 2835 (The GPU stuff) should be applicable to all models.
