Utilise RAM

Most of the time the rpi3 I use has nearly 900 out of 925 MiB of RAM free.
Do you have ideas to utilise it? (e.g. where to make tmpfs)

/var/log & /tmp are already tmpfs

Pi Foundation Charity status in other countries

Why wouldn't the Raspberry Pi Foundation register their chariy in other countries so it would be able to donate 1% of taxes (or similiar, depending on country) to them?

Re: Unusable wifi after month of usage

When external wifi adapter is plugged in, the onboard wifi adapter is listed (ifconfig - wlan0, wlan1). If external adapter is unplugged, onboard is likely to continue working till pi is turned off. Booting after doing so will result in no wifi at all, be it with external plugged in or not and will ...

Re: Guide: Chromium 51 on Raspbian Jessie

Found kwebhelper_settings.py which helped me with removing gui but youtube_dl_options seem ignored (I set it to '-f','17' which is 144p but video is like 1080p)

Re: Guide: Chromium 51 on Raspbian Jessie

It only uses OmxplayerGUI and the quality is automatically the best. You can set the window size at the bottom right. I assume it is defined in source code and to change it I would need to change line with omxplayergui to omxplayer and youtube-dl's -f part, although I don't know where to look for t...

Re: Guide: Chromium 51 on Raspbian Jessie

Installing python-tk made rpi-youtue work.
How do I change omxplayergui to omxplayer and select (default) video quality?

What is the name of the script that runs when rpi-youtube extension button is pressed?
I'd keybind it in dwm.

I appreciate your work! Thank you

Re: Chromium no images

Version from your repo is the same as the one we used and it didn't solve the problem.
I guess it is some jpeg lib that is missing

Connecting Pi to router through Ethernet and rebooting Pi solved this for now.

Unusable wifi after month of usage

Bought pi 3b month and a half ago. Now it finds/connects to wifi completely randomly. One time it boot it's up other time it's not. Once it's up it works for like 15 seconds and then it goes off and pi starts to be unresponsive, commands (e.g. sudo halt, ifconfig, iwconfig, ctrl-alt-del) end up by b...

[s] Chromium no images

First time I installed Chromium on pi3 was on fresh Raspbian Jessie and everything was fine, until I removed a lot of packages (or chromium version got updated? i'm not sure what caused this). Chromium stopped displaying most images, they were here but it was just plain background color (probably of...

Hardware hissing

Hardware hisses while in terminal with (not so) much text displayed. I am using dwm so it is very easy to reproduce each time. (same in i3) Just use one command with a bit output or nano and pi becomes noisy, top shows under 1% cpu usage. Changing to another 'workspace' with e.g. chromium with video...

[solved] tty settings when there's no grub

Using commands like dpkg --get-selections needs a lot of scrolling to see the output and tty has it limited.
Solution I've found[0] requires setting grub kernel parameter but there is no /etc/grub/default in pi.
How do I do it?

How to make image with preset programs and settings that can be done using pi and its weight will not count empty space[0]?
