Re: eth0 not found

Have you set the MAC address at all as this messed the name up before? No never - the remote server has been running for about 18 months perfectly - it was just the upgrade today (which is the first I've done since I upgraded from jessie to stretch a couple of months ago. Because I have a clone sys...

Re: eth0 not found

Run sudo raspi-config Select 2 Network Options Select N3 Network interface names Choose <No> Exit and reboot. I gave this a try, removing my solution beforehand. It didn't work. In fact worse than that in that it prevented my solution from working when I put it back. I had to run sudo raspi-config ...

eth0 not found

I upgraded one of my remote systems this morning and did a reboot. It failed to come up so that I could ssh back into it. Looks like a visit to the remote site is required. This is raspbian initially installed as Jessie, but recently upgraded to Stretch. I have a local copy of that system and so did...

/boot is on two partitions

I noticed when preparing my sd-card via an image mounted on my linux loop back device that /boot already exists in partition 2 (root partition) with what looks identical to whats in partition 1. The /boot on the root partiion gets hidden* when the the first partiion is mounted over it. * of course y...

Re: Trouble loading git with aptitude

Re: Trouble loading git with aptitude

Its more subtle than I first thought. I have an sd card I took from the device this morning which I had loaded git on successfully, and that has a package file that contains the correct latest version. So I also loaded the package list from the repository, and that matches what I took from the sd ca...

Re: Trouble loading git with aptitude

I think it must be a problem with the package list files

Looking directly into the repository there is a libcurl3-gnutls but it is version 7.38.0-4+deb8u3 and the package list says it wants version 7.38.0-4+deb8u2

Who do I tell about this?

Trouble loading git with aptitude

I have just downloaded an image of raspbian and installed it on my new model 2 :-) Its been a while since I was last on this forum but I am having trouble with aptitude. I am an experienced debian user, so I am reasonably happy with most aspects of using the OS. BUT, attempting to install git and ap...

Re: Headless challenges updating WiFi settings.

I'm currently working on a solution for the same problem. The way I have it set up right now, is doing an initial setup via the sd card (setting the wifi-network-name and wifi-network-password). This method is indeed too cumbersome. The most elegant solution I have in mind is the following: on firs...

Re: Standalone XBMC PI & Android/IOS Remote

Let me start out by saying I haven't tried anything like this and I am talking from the perspective of running raspbian and not XBMC and I just came across your post and decided to comment.
