Re: Strange Win32Diskimager problem

Thanks for the reply-all 3 of them I tried then must be fake or end of life then....

I have some new cards coming tomorrow, I will see how they perform and report back-thanks for the help so far.

cheers

Re: Strange Win32Diskimager problem

Ahh cheers for the heads up-but it appears to have the same problem-just tried it on the Win7 and failed again (see below). I tried the same thing on my Macbook, running a Win7 VM image-and I got the same error.Some thing must be up in Windows-either that, or I'm jinxed!

Strange Win32Diskimager problem

Hello all Hopefully someone can help me-or if nothing else, someone may be helped by this. I've been using Win32Diskimager for years, on the same Win 7 machine, to dutifully back up my work on various micro SD cards. However, recently no matter what I try, all my attempts at backing up are now faili...

B+ with Jessie, I couldn't get a Netgear WNDA3200 2.4+5Ghz dongle to work-when I say work, it came up with lsusb as "no Firmware". If you Google, you'll see this a lot so...

Re: Feedback pls: Remotely connect to your Raspberry Pi

Elliot
Both, to be honest.Most are a simple ICMP, some I look for HTTP or SSH being up-depending on what I'm using them for at the time (I work for a major ISP and they come in handy for drop in troubleshooting, and a zero-config VPN is handy for getting through NAT)

Re: Feedback pls: Remotely connect to your Raspberry Pi

PRTG is on separate machine (a Amazon EC2 image to be precise). The PRTG machine is part of the Neorouter network and has a tun interface, with a 172.16.x.x address. Each of the Pi's are in this network. So the PRTG server pings the 172.16.x.x address of the Pi's,over what is essentially a fully tun...

The compute module does have onboard flash. ..
It does seem to fit the job but the cost of the "official" IO does put it out of the ballpark for me.

Re: Question on why no onboard flash

Probably not in Pi3 (whatever/whenever that may be). Simply because the SD card is so much more convenient for the huge majority of users, despite occasional corruption issues, and it would add cost for the whole user base, when only a few people would really need that option . With all due respect...

Re: Question on why no onboard flash

One can avoid damaging the file systems of SD card by mounting them as read-only at boot time. Then you will have a system as sold as OpenWRT. Instructions on how to do this or Debian are here https://wiki.debian.org/ReadonlyRoot I presume this also works for Raspbian. Has anyone here tried such a ...

Ok So I have read a few posts on why having some on-board flash, even just for boot-up, and then moving the heavy lifting read-write cycles to an alternative ( as I do with some of my Pi's SD>USB), is a no-no, and would mean a bottom up revision of how the Pi is structured/built.But for me, booting ...
