Re: Keep Autostart Terminal Open

@petecal this is what you should try.

Try this:

Code: Select all

lxterminal -e 'your_command_here ; echo "waiting forever" ; sleep infinity'
Or you could even make the terminal interactive after your command finishes:

Code: Select all

lxterminal -e 'your_command_here ; bash'

Re: Is there a possibility of running the new ARM Mac OS on a Pi 4?

I've emulated an old MacOS on RPi once using QEMU... It was really boring.

If you want that MacOS look & feel, go check out Twister OS. (a modified version of Raspberry Pi OS)
It has a very realistic MacOS theme. (they ported the icons, appearance theme, and sound effects to Xfce4)

Re: Saving files from a broken system

First of all: it's very important to keep a backup SD card! So if something goes wrong with your main SD card, just power down the Pi, switch the SD cards out, boot the Pi into your backup sd card, and keep right on going. While your Pi is running on the backup SD card, you can copy your files out o...

Please answer.
Sorry for not answering earlier. :oops:
Box86 will only run on armhf/arm32/armv7l OS'es. So if your Ubuntu is 32bit arm, then in theory, it will work. Report back to me how it goes, and if there's a problem, I can try to fix it for you.

Re: The RPi400 motherboard should be sold separately

Or if it's out in the air, that would probably be sufficient enough right there. For an enclosed keyboard, there won't be air moving past the CPU. So you are forced to spread the heat out.
Worst case scenario, you may need to use a stick-on heatsink. (airflow opens many more heat-management options)

While it would be nice to have the Pi 400 motherboard sold separately so you could bring your own keyboard, you wouldn't want it without the heat-sink solution they devised, and that heat sink is notably keyboard size/shape. From what I can find online, the Flirc case does quite well for the Pi 4B,...
