Can I just copy/rsync the rootfs partition? ie: Yes. See if this thread helps ->https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=214280 No, the rootfs is not delicate.

Re: "Windows Image Backup" like image backup system for USB HDD installed Raspbian

I suppose "Windows Backup" uses a proprietary format (sort of a sparse image), which is why it requires "Windows Restore" to restore the image, and requires the correct version to be used to avoid incompatibilities. IMHO opinion, you're better off using the standard Linux tools to create a tar file ...

Re: "Windows Image Backup" like image backup system for USB HDD installed Raspbian

What you are asking for is akin to an oxymoron. An image is an exact bit-by-bit copy of a partition or disk. It is therefore the same size as that space, although it could be compressed with gzip/xz etc. You are asking for is a smaller image. To make such an "image" you need to remove all the unsuse...

Glad you got the ssh bit working - that bit I do know how to do, but tunneling cifs is not something I've done before. Assuming you have set up your local loopback interface as suggested in the tutorial, I guess your problems will relate to customising the tutorial to your setup. In the "configuring...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

In your new /os/Lakka_RPi2 folder on your USB stick, you would need to edit os.json. 1. Change the "release_date" to be the same as the date of your nightly build so that it is later than the version on the internet and will therefore take precedence over it. 2. In the "Supported_models" section, th...

You need to close port 445 on your router, otherwise you are vulnerable. I assume you have sshd running on your Pi and configured for port 22.

@leptonfarm - Sounds more like your kivy image pre-dates the Pi3B+ and has old firmware and kernel on it. You need a more up to date version to run on a 3B+.

Check the version of bsdtar you use to create it is v3.3.1 or later.
Once you've created your tarballs, try extracting them yourself manually.

Re: New linux GPIO (C++/C) poll Interrupt problem

It seems that it might be my lack of knowledge that is the problem. Just using a button to generate an interrupt from 3.3v is not how to do it, it seems. The real world is not ideal. When you press a button, the contacts usually "bounce". Too fast for your eye to see, but fast microprocessors will ...

Re: Need help trying to dual boot 2 custom images

So let's work backwards through your email.... There is my second one. I cant use none of my pen drives (64gb and 8gb). PINN seems to not read the OSes on they. But the drive is listed on the PINN`s first page. So, PINN only works with "pen card readers"? No, it should work with most "pendrives" or ...

Re: Setting up an SD card - Can't resize partition

It happens sometimes with some cards. Reformat it using the recommended SD card formatter tool then copy NOOBS (or PINN ;) ) back to it. If that doesn't clear it, try formatting it in a digital camera. There is an image version of PINN you can burn to the SD card using Etcher which might solve the p...

Re: How is my /dev/root full ?

`ls -lha` is only showing you the size of the directories (i.e. the space taken up by the directory entries), not the size of the files within each directory.

Try

Code: Select all

Yes, you are right. RiscOS is continually evolving and there are now IMAGES that can be burnt direct to an SD card (Etcher) for all versions of RPi, but these image files are not installable by NOOBS/PINN for a multi-boot scenario as the OP requested. RiscOS has some special file system which requir...

The only issue is that your Win10 PC can actually see all of those partitions - normally it can't.

If RiscOS is not showing up in NOOBS or PINN it is because it is not compatible with your model of PI. Here is its compatibility list: "supported_models": [ "Pi Model", "Pi Compute Module Rev", "Pi Zero", "Pi 2" ], So you are out of luck if you have a Pi3

Nearly, you need to delete the last comma after "CEC_User_Control_Down" then it should be ok (I've not tested it) But why do you even need left and right on the boot selection dialog?
