Re: Is Pi3 vulnerable to broadpwn wifi security flaw?

Ah, I see.

As far as I know, this is for boards with on board WiFi only. I'LL have to check re the Dongle. Won't be for a week or two, on holiday.

Re: Custom lens shading tables

Welcome to the wonderful world of camera tuning. You may need to hand tune the shading tables if 6by9s auto system cannot figure it out. It can be quite a lot of work to get these spot on.

Re: Where is kernel.img?

Definitely in /boot, which should be the explorer window that comes up when you insert the SD card on a Windows box. Note that this is the only partition of the SD card visible on Windows. You need Linux to view the rest.

Re: Raspberry Pi STANDALONE Camera Wifi

Perfectly possible. Set up the Pi as an access point, then you can log into it directly over WiFi. Just need the right software on top to set up the streaming.

rpi-update is NOT recommended for use by non-experts.
I suggested rpi-update, to get a recent fix.

It should run ok, since it fails it suggests an issue elsewhere.

Edit, in fact should use sudo apt-get install rpi-update to get it. Then run it.

Re: RPi 2b SSH usually disconnects!

Since everyone else using SSH doesn't see this, that suggests your setup or environment. There is a recent driver fix that can affect SSH but that fixes SSH not working at all. Rpi-update will get that fix.

Re: Unable to switch camera at more than 1fps

You are using the system in a way it was never intended to work, and I am surprised it works at all. To be honest a gap of 1 second sounds pretty good given that's how long we suggest for camera startup, not sure how you would improve on it.

6by9 might have some suggestions.

rpi-update will use the very latest bleeding edge kernel and firmware, it will NOT have been thoroughly tested.

Only use it if you know it has a specific fix for a problem you are seeing.

Re: How to install the Wifi driver for Raspberry zero W

I'd suggest simply trying the latest Raspbian to see if it works correctly. I've not used QT Creator recently, cross compiling should result in a valid binary that will run on the Pi as long as the compiler is set up correctly.

Increasing frame rate past those modes that already exist requires access to the camera driver on the GPU which is closed source.

Re: Network port of RPi3 just goes dead

There is a fix for a bridging issue in Raspbian (the brcmfmac driver AND the smsc95xx driver both had the same fault), not sure if it is also in Arch, that might be the problem. Think the fix in in kernel 4.12 and up. We backported it to earlier Raspbian versions.

Re: How to install the Wifi driver for Raspberry zero W

Use the latest version of Raspbian, it has the wireless drivers built in. Not sure whether the drivers will work on a distro from 2015, they may not even compile due to changes in the Linux ABI. Why does an application require a distro that old? That might be an easier approach -get the app working ...
