SOLVED: How to fix Raspi-config Desktop Autologin breakage?

You got it! I figured it out by waiting a while, then running find / -xdev -mmin 1 right after toggling the setting with raspi-config. It updated /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf even though lightdm wasn't installed. Installing lightdm fixed the problem. FWIW, the output of pstree is below. My pi kiosk run...

How to fix Raspi-config Desktop Autologin breakage?

I have been experimenting with some system configurations to use on an old Pi B running Raspbian buster as a keyboardless kiosk-like device. I have ended up with good old Xorg running with openbox, but now the raspi-config "Desktop Autologin" as user pi no longer works fully - it relinks d...

Re: Can't install Noobs from an 8gb SD?

Yep. NOOBS 3.2.0 is only *23 MB* too big to put on an 8G SD.

I tried untar-ing the zip file, removing LibreELEC, and re-zipping. This resulted in a SD that had a few dozen MB to spare, but the SD was unbootable.

You can get 3.1.1 from the archives, or you can use NOOBs Lite.

Anyone getting the raspbian kismet to work?

I have not found any recent discussions on this. I've done an "apt-get install kismet" from the standard source but I can't get kismet to recognize the wifi module I have. The wifi module is the Ralink RT5370 usb stick sold by SparkFun (lsusb ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wi...

Re: Where are kernel headers?

Well, the intent was to see if any of the dgc/hdfmodem Linmodem drivers would build on Raspbian, but after taking a look they heavily depend on i386 features like MMX. So the chances of these drivers working on a Pi are zero. So, the best bet, if one is thinking of connecting a Pi to a dialup line, ...

Where are kernel headers?

I am trying to build the generic hsfmodem Winmodem driver from http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php. The thing that seems to be holding me back right now is lack of kernel headers: cc1: fatal error: /usr/src/kernel-headers-3.10.24+/include/linux/config.h: No such file or directory ...

Omxplayer too loud, shairport too soft

I've got omxplayer and shairport working OK on Rasbian, but omxplayer is too loud and shairport is not loud enough. There is about a 20dB difference..... Neither seems to support a volume setting as a command line option. Omxplayer seems to have an undocumented "--vol" option but it has no...
