Re: Why is raspbian seem dead?

I have used UNIX from around 1981 and later Linux of course to the present day. Countless distros and platforms. Raspbian is one of the best. It has no annoyances for me (apart from being 32-bit only :) ). It is solid, reliable, well engineered. It stands out. Thanks to the RPF engineering team. No...

I suspect the post was moved from its original location and tat has confused the OP.

Re: set the arm_freq to more than two levels other than arm_freq_max and arm_freq_min

The 3B+ does this automatically. I'm not sure it is currently possible on other models. I have 3b+. I need to set the frequency manually. I need frequencies between min and max frequency. I could not set the cpu frequency to them. If you are just using for test, then set min and max to the same val...

Glad I found the answer here. Sorry for noob question but my sd card now appears as if it were an internal drive in that there is no eject option in the context menu. How do I eject it safely? I'll power my pc down in the meantime but I want to be able to flash other stuff from time to time. Thanks...

Hi all. Am wondering why raspbian as not improved in the last 3 years. Browser still crap. Mouse acceleeration bug still there. Lot of other small bug that could be fixed easily.

We have never backported it.

Have you got the required firmware for the 3B+ Wireless chip? You need the latest contents of /lib/firmware/brcm from 4.14+

OK, taking the mick out of misspelling, which could be down to writing in a foreign language is frowned upon. So probably best to not do it.

Re: Multiple framebuffer support - testers wanted

Would anyone be interesting in beta testing? You will need to build your own kernel and modules, and be able to install them on an SD card. There will also be a new firmware (start*.elf) required. You can already see the kernel changes in this branch on my github https://github.com/JamesH65/linux/t...

Re: Multiple framebuffer support - testers wanted

Quick one, could you test with the SenseHAT. Only because it uses /dev/fb1 iirc. If fb1 is already in use, I suspect that the SenseHAT would move to fb2, probably depends on initialisation order. I'll see if I can find one in the office to test though. Might be a bit awkward because of using the he...
