Re: Power rpi 4 using 18650 question

Depanding on the load on the Rpi 4, it could maybe not last that long. You can measure how much current the Rpi 4 needs in you application, or your test it how long it wil last. I will place the two batttery in series and use a buck converter that is set to 5V to power the Rpi. Often it is easier g...

How long do you want it to run on the battery?
May be 1 or 2 hours and then I will charge the batteries.
I will monitor the battery voltage and make sure never drop 3v.

Hello, I am getting a rpi 4 4gb version. I have several good quality 3000mah 18650 cells lying around which can discharge up to 10A easily. Should I be using 1 cell and boost the voltage to 5v? Or use 2 cells and step down to 5v? What is the best way to achieve either of the method? Any ready made r...

Re: https on apache2. https does not work out side home netw

Usually, different rules apply to LAN vs. WAN due to the security implications - especially when we are talking SSL/TLS. Is the certificate authorized by a CA? If not, this may be the problem.

[SOLVED] Re: custom rc script not being called while shutdow

stop singal will get initiated only if there is a file in /var/lock/subsys/<rcscriptname>
So i put a touch stalemate as part of start section.

Code: Select all

start() {
/apps/splunk/bin/splunk start

Hello,

I am a raspberry pi 2 model user now. It works fine.

On the desktop top right corner I see a steady (not blinking) small square color pattern. Does that mean pi is getting enough power?

Re: Trying compile and install Apache from source.

Wait a minute. If you cannot get root permissions how did you create the /Splunk directory ? If that directory already existed presumably you don't have enough permissions to access it. The answer is to install it to some place you do have permission to use. Hence the --prefix=/home/username/apache...
