Re: rPi3 fresh install, no ssh connection via wired Ethernet

rPi3 fresh install, no ssh connection via wired Ethernet

Added the file 'ssh' to the root of the sd card to enable the by default disabled ssh; put the SD into the Pi, network cable and power; red LED on, green blinking... rPi3 acquired IP address via DHCP; I can ping it, nmap...

Re: Pi3 UART stopped working? Read this.

It's either because ttyAMA0 is the more capable UART with larger FIFOs and a clock which is immune to core frequency changes, or because we hate you - pick whichever suits your world view. Well put... thanks! This clearly demonstrates that I should not be talking about things I do not understand. A...

Re: Pi3 UART stopped working? Read this.

I am gob smacked... just bought 2 Pi3 to run a python script reading serial via USB and it does not work... As a matter of principle: why would anyone implement a change like this? Instead of giving Bluetooth a new serial port rather than using an existing one and breaking backwards compatibility? T...

Re: [Solved] sSMTP: forwarding mail for local users

Thank you for your post... exactly what I was looking for.
However, after you make the changes to mail.rc how did you restart the mailx service.

I have installed mailx and made the changes, but I am still getting the same DNS error... not wanting to reboot; how do I restart the mailx service.
Thanks!
