Re: How to make the Pi faster?

Basically +1 for what everyone else has said. I look at it this way: a Raspberry Pi is an alternative for a cheap 10 year old computer but with the added benefits of being ridiculously small and not consuming much energy. It's for when you want to fool around with software without ruining the comput...

At the moment I have the following on my USB drive: First partition: FAT32, copied the BOOT partition from the Debian Buster RPi 3B image, altered cmdline.txt to boot from USB ('root=/dev/sda2' - because I'm on USB instead of SD) Second partition: EXT4, copied the Debian ARM64 installer (contents of...

Re: Debian on Pi 3B & 3B+

A Raspberry boots from a SD FAT partition, this is where the software (KERNEL*.IMG) for the GPU is stored. The GPU takes care of the reading of these fles and loads this in memory. Only then the ARM processor is activated. OK, I'll make a BOOT partition in FAT32 :) https://wiki.debian.org/Raspberry...

The 'vanilla' Debian ARM64 doesn't have a BOOT partition but a /BOOT folder. Can I start copying th...

Although there are ways to reduce risk of corruption, I recommend using a hard drive instead of an SD-card.

Re: Raspberry pi 3B

Are you by any chance using a pre-written (NOOBS) SD-card on a Raspberry Pi 3B+?

If yes, download the latest Raspbian, write it to the SD-card with Etcher (or another image writer) and use that.

Re: 10 and 12 inch Raspberry Pi compatible screen?

It’s normal that the Raspberry organization themselves don’t recommend items they don’t manufacture because they can’t be sure that it will always stay compatible with future software & harware updates. An example of this: the NOOBS SD-cards that some stores sell with the Pi 3B+ aren’t up-to-date an...

Thanks for the insight.
If you’re planning on using Noobs to install Raspbian, just download the Raspbian image directly ;)

You can already start the download :p

Install Raspbian Lite and use “sudo apt-get install“ followed by your preffered GUI package. Most (if not all) dependencies will get installed as well.

Re: USB HDD Drive ?

Is there advantages/disadvantages to using usb instead of an sd card ? Ethernet goes over the USB controller. So for uploading/downloading you might be slightly better off with a fast SD-card. For lots of writes (eg. database server) you might be better off with a USB drive to avoid corruption on S...

Re: How to bookmark a topic

I see the problem ;)

You have the 'raspberry_pi' theme which doesn't support the topic tools menu.

Try going to your 'User Control Panel' -> 'Board preferences' and set 'My board style' to 'RPi' or 'prosilver'.

Re: Enable SSH before first contact

Create an empty file with the name 'SSH' and put it on the BOOT partition.

(FYI: 'SSH.TXT' is also a valid name and it doesn't necessarily have to be an empty file.)

Let us know how that works out for you ;)

You probably got a version of NOOBS that doesn't support the 3B+ yet. If you want to install Raspbian, download the latest version, put it on your SD cards and all will be well.
