Re: UL and Flammability rating for Raspberry Pi 3B+

The PCB's used in Raspberry Pi devices adhere to UL94-V0, but note that is the PCB ONLY. We have no other UL ratings and are unlikely to be trying to get any in the future. Note, I believe UL is an entirely voluntary scheme, not a regulatory requirement - we do adhere to all the regulatory requireme...

Re: RPi3 WiFi Issues

Since you can see a neighbours AP, it might be worth trying a different AP, just for testing purposes. Sounds like some sort of incompatibility with the router itself, rather than the Pi, but would need to test to prove it.

This thread is specifically for the 3B+. Please start another thread for any non-3B+ related issues. Once a new thread is started I will delete the non-3B+ information in this one to avoid confusion.

Re: We're looking at introducing more swag - what would you like to see?

I suspect that requests for software enhancements, new HW etc are not really what Liz is looking for (although sensible ideas nevertheless). Swag is stuff we sell in the swag store, not things like camera modules, or custom OS's.

Re: We're looking at introducing more swag - what would you like to see?

There's a guy somewhere on the forum asking if he should get his son a Pi for going to uni. He's going to need a key-ring, isn't he? Giving your son a bottle opener for the university may send the wrong message. I think an official Pi heatsink shaped into the Raspberry logo (along with a 3B+ to ins...

Re: Rpi3 + Usb + Samba - problem with copying large files

Uname -a is the right thing to try, 4.14.34 is the kernel version and 34 does not have the fix, so this here is a problem with the updating.

Just to confirm, you say you don't have wireless, but this is a 3b+?

Re: June 2018 initial configuration states Raspbian Updates WHY??

Obviously down to the same source code being used for both the ARM and x86 build. We do like to make life easier for ourselves by not maintaining different code bases, but I suspect fairly easy to add a quick quick to the code itself to see what's underneath and change the wording.

I'll flag it up.

I'll flag this up to SPL who works on this stuff, but ISTR him saying that the localisation support in Linux is a bit pants, so this may be a limitation in there rather than the GUI stuff he works on.

There have been some *very* recent changes to the driver that may help here. The latest fix should be in rpi-update. I think it woudl be worth trying it, to see if it helps.

Correct. The idea is to verify you downloaded what you think you downloaded, which is the .zip, not the .img.
