Re: What was last known release before Debian included SystemD

Hello!
I should also mention that if these problems persist, [i[ knock on wood[/i] I might switch to a distribution which is not supported here of course, but does have good support elsewhere.

That is Slackware on ARM. And it shows great promise.

Re: What was last known release before Debian included SystemD

Looking at your old posts I see a requirement to enable serial getty on a USB UART, and at the non-default baud rate of 4800. Were there other issues? Enabling getty is trivial with systemd. http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/serial-console.html Hello! Yes that was the game plan that I followed. I no...

Re: What was last known release before Debian included SystemD

I am still pursuing a project from several years earlier, that of making a TRS-80 Model 102 communicate with a Raspberry Pi properly, and have come to the conclusion that it just might not be possible to make the idea work using a release that contained SystemD to manage things. That is so obviousl...

Re: How would I go about changing the serial baud rate on a TTY

Normally you would just set the baudrate in the program that uses the serialport. If you are using a dedicated serial-library for your chosen language ( e.g. Pyserial ) those libraries will let you control the baudrate. But if you just want to change it from the terminal the command is: stty -F /de...

Hello! I currently have my Pi 2 wearing a pair of thumb drives containing the bulk of my files. I vaguely recall seeing in an early issue of the Mag Pi how someone used the Pi and an external drive fixture, (not a drive case!) to facilitate file serving.

Re: The usbbootgui functiion

The "it" refers to the downloaded image.

The desktop contains the function. The blog mentions that this function works on the desktop, but that it is also available for the PI.

I am trying to track down what is involved with bringing the function to the regular OS on the Pi.
