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

1. yes, apart from Moode - I don't think that has been converted yet. Add a projectspace to reserve some space for it and you should be able to install it later (although I can't guarantee that as I haven't looked at it yet, 2. Generally, Yes. I don't try this with every OS, but it should not make a...

Re: I Accidentally Deleted the FAT Partition

If you have deleted the partition table, your data is still there, but your Pi doesn't know where the partition is. You cannot reformat a non-existent partition and it would needlessly delete your data. All you need to do is to restore the partition table entry with the correct values ;) Here is a l...

Re: Occasional unhandled IRQ on Pi4

It also seems stable on the PiZero rev1.2 (512MB) and PI400 4GB rev 1.0
So the problem seems related to PI4 4GB. I don't have any 1 or 2GB versions to test on.

Re: Occasional unhandled IRQ on Pi4

Thanks Mahjongg - Low level advanced kernel stuff maybe, but not bare metal (i.e. without a kernel/os) :D Typically, since I posted this, I've been testing this driver on a Pi4 rev 1.4 8GB and it's not gone wrong once! It also seems stable on the Pi3B+. But on PI4 4GB rev 1.2 and rev1.4 it fails wit...

Re: NOOBS refuses to boot(rpi3b, 128 gb, noobs 3.2.1)

I suggest you try installing it with RPI-imager as described here -> viewtopic.php?p=1638508#p1638508
It avoids any problems of using FAT32 on large SD cards.

Re: NOOBS refuses to boot(rpi3b, 128 gb, noobs 3.2.1)

You didn't mention which OSes you have already installed on your 32GB card. Are you trying to duplicate those OSes and NOOBS onto your new 128GB card, or are you trying to install a new copy of NOOBS? I think you have already recognised that NOOBS won't boot off exFAT, only FAT32. But formatting the...

Hi - you can post such PINN specific questions on my PINN thread where I am more likely to spot them. Yes, you could use PINN to install these OSes. Batocera and Lineage are already options in PINN, but they may not have the same preconfigurations that you have found. One way is to install the stand...

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

If you want to put any OS in /os of the SD card, you must make sure there is enough room on there first. That depends on how you install PINN in the first place (unzipping the zip file, or dd'ing an image etc.) Alternatively, you can put OSes in the /os folder of a FAT32 formatted USB drive instead....

Re: Image File Utilities

If you use the '-P' option of losetup to create a LOOP device of an image file, you don't need to get involved with the offsets and lengths of partitions. That sounds a bit like Kpartx. I used to use that but it didn't always work on some images, so I defaulted to using losetup the hard way instead...

There's no need for two FAT partitions when using a "run from RAM" OS (or for a second root partition). Stick the initrd in the "recovery" directory of the existing boot partition and have one of the actions taken by the gpio filter be to specify the initrd as well as the os_pre...

Re: Automatically modify fstab BEFORE boot

However I doubt that will help with the OP's problem. The fstab of the recovery OS needs the correct device identifiers or that won't boot either. I don't think that's quite the same thing, as you are using a 2nd rootfs in a separate partition, which still requires locating the partition properly i...
