Re: Information about kernel versions in Raspbian stable

The information there is quite confusing. For example, I it says on 20 Feb raspberrypi-kernel_1.20170405-1 on 20 Feb raspberrypi-kernel_1.20170303-1 : Clicking on raspberrypi-kernel_1.20170405-1 shows popcornmix tagged this on 20 Feb · 75404 commits to rpi-4.9.y since this tag Merge remote-tracking ...

Information about kernel versions in Raspbian stable

Where can I find information about which kernel versions have been and will be when in Raspbian stable?

I know that the development takes place at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux but I could not find this information with respect to the stable repository.

Re: Shutdown & reboot button of PIXEL desktop not working in

I am open for alternative VNC startup suggestions.

I have also asked this question at http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q/64393/58211.

Yes every time something with PID.
I haven't found a solution for it and people suggested to ignore it.

Re: Shutdown & reboot button of PIXEL desktop not working in

I am using 'VNC(R) Server 6.0.2 (r26558) ARMv6 (Mar 14 2017 17:00:31), Copyright (C) 2002-2017 RealVNC Ltd.'

Could it be realted to the fact that I start it via pi's crontab with
@reboot local/bin/vnc.sh &

where vnc.sh contains

Code: Select all

#/bin/bash
export SHELL=/bin/bash
vncserver :2 -geometry 1280x720

Update: As I found out this only happens for my VNC desktop. The reboot button works in the non virtual PIXEL desktop of user pi. But in VNC I am user `pi`: raspberrypi:~$ whoami pi Why is this not working in VNC and how can I fix it? I also discuss this problem at http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.c...

Shutdown & reboot button not working in VNC started by cron

The PIXEL desktop of Rasbian (Jessie) has a shutdown menu with Shutdown, Reboot and Logout. However, only logout works.

How can I get shutdown and reboot working?

Re: Frequent I/O activity by web browser Chromium

@fruitoftheloom Thanks for pointing out the new Chromium version 56.0.2924.84.
I have updated my Chromium to this new version now.
However as ktb and I already expected this didn't solve the problem.

Re: Why is the green LED (ACT) blinking without SD card acti

Thank you very much for your answer. Is there any documentation about this or how can one know this and refer others to it? I am also still wondering what the `mmc1` mode is doing. For me the ACT LED would be more useful if it would just indicate the I/O or simply the O (write access) of the SD card...

The green led (ACT) on my Raspberry Pi 3 is set to mmc0 to flash on SD card activity via echo mmc0 |sudo tee /sys/class/leds/led0/trigger However, it flashes much more often (randomly every few seconds) than it should according to the I/O reported by iotop -bktoqqq -d .5 and iostat -dzp 5 So I wonde...
