Re: How to stop Chromium from crashing

So the Pi isn't running Node-RED - its just displaying the dashboard?

You might be better off discussing this directly on the Node-RED forum

Re: How to stop Chromium from crashing

Can you simplify your dashboard for testing purposes and see if it stops crashing or takes longer before it does so?

Can you view the dashboard from another Pi and/or another different type of computer and see if that's stable?

Re: LXDE Memory Leaks

Task bar does not have battery monitoring. Here is my screen copy of my task bar.
It can be invisible if not in actual use

Right-click and select add/remove and scroll down to see if its there- on my Pi4 its after the clock

Re: Mapping Pi as a network drive on a windows 10 computer

Yes - you've done it right. I don't think it matters where it shows - I can see it on the left pane under the My PC tab as just another drive so I'm happy enough with that As long as the drive letter works - all should be good :) PS I've got so many Pi that I've just use \\ipadress\... for most thin...

Re: LXDE Memory Leaks

I've seen another thread about a possible LXDE memory leak and AFAIR the only cure at the moment is to reboot your Pi every so often.

AND AFAIR the leak is quite slow and therefore isn't at the top of the priority fix list

Global search and replace certain terms on the forum

Has anyone at RPi looked into doing a global search and replace to use terms such as main/secondary and allowlist/blocklist on the forum?

Might cause some small semantic difficulties but small price to pay I'd thought

Re: python3 can't control 24V motor with PWM

You have bought the wrong board to drive that motor

It will only handle 30A for a short time - your motor draws more than 20A

It almost certainly will burn out.

No-one is going to help you set fire to something :)

Re: mqtt newbie

Yes.

Its quite common, in a network, to have the broker running on one Pi and all the machines in the network, including the machine the broker is running on, publish and subscribe to it.

Re: Best practice for generating an image using Raspberry OS

Instead of using your script - just make a copy of your working 160ms SD card onto another SD card using the sd card copier utiilty

Put 2nd SD card straight into a Pi - measure timing - is it 160ms?

Have you done what I asked - actually take the card from the 2GB machine and put it into the 4GB machine - does it run 5 times slower?

Re: How safe is the GPIO from RPi 4B

Early Pi3's were susceptible
As a non-RPI employee, I can say that they were more than susceptible - shorting those pins is 99.99% going to lead to a dead Pi.

Typo or is it really available in bulk the same way as the PiZeroWH is i.e. from retail shops?
