Sounds like you want to abuse what they're offering. Best to check directly with bitbucket first.

And yes, as far as I understand it, github private repos are only available to paying users.
Correct.

Re: How can I prevent root to expand at first boot?

Excellent question. Why does the installation force users to have only one partition? It's easy to make the root partition larger, making it smaller not so easy ( I haven't figured out how to do it yet!) The 'Filesystem Hierarchy Standard' states that /var shall contain "Variable files—files whose ...

Re: Reflash Pi Zero W factory rom?

But we don't know how many boards were affected. Only a handful have been reported here. Even if they are unprogrammed and could be repaired, it would cost more to collect the boards, repair, and return then than simply to replace them. So you get the challenge of trying to salvage a board that is ...

He says he has it under control. Sometimes you've got to have a little faith. If innovation relied on the feelings of naysayers, nothing would get off the ground.

What software are you using to display things? With something like `fbi` you can have a transition between frames that works pretty well.

Re: Banana PI vs Raspberry PI

Browsers are really terrible with requiring huge amounts of memory (still have no idea why, bad coding I suspect), You could try Firefox, which I believe uses less memory, and there may be other options.

Have no idea about the Banana Pi, I know they ripped off our name a bit.

All right so you are saying that it has to be the "swap partition"' fault. I mean maybe Pi-hole or Deluge installed it automatically. How can I fix it?

Re: Raspberry Pi is not connecting to internet via ethernet

This is something that should "just work".

I pressume the Pi is up and running and using Raspbian, so simply plugging in the ethernet cable to the router should automatically negotiate an IP address.

Likely to be something with your physical setup. Can you describe it?
