Re: BusyBox being installed on Buster Lite?

There's a new option in raspi-config that will set up your Pi to have a read-only root file system. To do that raspi-config needs the initramfs-tools installed. initramfs-tools depend on initramfs-tools-core, which recomends busybox. The default in Debian and Raspbian is to install Recomends as wel...

BusyBox being installed on Buster Lite?

I'm not quite sure where this question should go, but I think beginners is a pretty safe place to assume. I was doing a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade today and noticed that it's installing 7 new packages including BusyBox. I don't understand why exactly as all previous installations of Raspbian Lite tha...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Not fully booting Raspbian

I am currently using a Canakit USB-C charger designed for the Pi. Try a different charger. I have had good luck with Canakit chargers, but I did have one that was defective and could not output peak current, causing problems. Also try a different SD card. Just because it works with other devices, d...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

Heat isn't only bad because of throttling. Extended periods of heat can eventually lead to premature failure of chips. So even if it's below the throttling threshold, it can still be detrimental in the long term. 30 years instead of 35 years ? :D I know it is highly unlikely and doesn't even apply ...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

Considering that temps jumped 10 degrees immediately after the first reading on the Flirc and rose a lot more steadily with the Wicked aluminum seems to kinda confirm that I think. What I think is that the point is to stay below throttling temperature, and the $15 Flirc does that (mine was $11.20 p...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

Re: Pi4 Cooling

So I finally got my Flirc Kodi Edition case to test against my Wicked Aluminum/Pi Holder case from Barch Designs. Room temp is about 80F or 26.6C. Tests were taken consecutively on two separate Pi4s in the same exact location. The tests were started at about the same time after booting up. The Flirc...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

... I can't decide on whether it's beautiful or monstrous. But compared to the Flirc case I have this one has heatsinks for other chips as well as for the CPU. So better heat dissipation I think. At a price. .. Yeah 😅 It's machined out of a chunk of aluminum, so there's a lot of thermal mass compar...

It's very pricey at $70 USD, but I figure well worth it for piece of mind on a machine running 24/7 and avoiding fan noise and dust. Ran a sysbench stress test on it for 10 minutes and it did not go over 58C. https://i.imgur...

In my case, it is saving to an external 1tb USB HDD. So not quite slow. And this is the same device it has been doing it to in both instances (on board ethernet and the adapter).

Re: Slow Download Speed using Gigabit Adapter

I have noticed this issue as well using a gigabit adapter. My download speeds are significantly slower than usual (using the built-in 100mbit ethernet port). I have a 25mbit connection from my ISP, which is pretty abysmal, but gets the job done for me. I used to be able to max it out even on my pi, ...

That is odd. When I had my Ubuntu server up and running with Transmission Daemon 2.77, the arrows were working fine. Maybe it is because you updated and not installed fresh? Or did you install fresh?

Re: Updating Transmission from 2.52?

Yeah, I think I will wait it out. Seems like too much of a hassle and too many problems to use Jessie's repo for Transmission. If it's not broke, don't fix it. (for now).

Re: Updating Transmission from 2.52?

Cool. I guess I can wait for that. For now my set up is working how I want it to. Thanks for the response. Hrm... Would it be possible, once Raspbian Jessie is out, to grab the latest Transmission from that repo without going through a whole OS update? Or would that just cause breakages and headaches?

It would be great if the repos could be updated... Version 2.52 has a few bugs, namely the upload and download errors not showing up correctly in the webui and perhaps other which I have not run into.

Hello,

I finally got my Pi set up like I want it, but I was wondering if there was a way to update Transmission (daemon) from 2.52 to say 2.7X or the new 2.80? I can live with it, but I was wondering if there was any other way other than compiling from source.

Re: How to install to HDD?

I got errors doing it that way too. My conclusion is that the external enclosure must be going bad, so I ordered a new one. (I tested out some other files and they were transferred corrupt. the HDD itself is practically new and worked great connected internally).
