Re: [Resolved (nearly)] PackageKit asks "root" password

[EDIT] : I tried to install gufw from Add /Remove Software: it failed. I had to do it from command line. Maybe an other corner case of changing username. Although, I succeeded to install baobab with this tool.

[TODO] : update the documentation and main forum threads about change username. It was the main corner case I asked anyone to point.

Thanks a lot

Re: STICKY: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive

Hi Great thread ! And now, how do I prevent the original /dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfs to automount in /media/mypiuser so that it drops a day-to-day-not-that-useful-icon to the desktop of mypiuser anytime I boot ?

Re: PackageKit asks "root" password

PackageKit is the GUI package manager in raspbian as I sayed above (synaptic/apt). The droplist shows nothing but root, but its presence (I mean the droplist) let suppose it could be populated with designated users (maybe via a group membership).... OK, let me have a look to their web pages.... : no...

Re: [PI4:] how do I move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive

Have you updated the firmware on your SATA to USB cable? Hi Romprod, I did :D, successfully, and now Pi4 boots with rootfs in a SSD on USB3. I was afraid as lsusb reports a JMS567 chip and the FW was for JMS578. Although a closer look to the command output shows ...ID 152d: 0578 JMicron... . Whatev...

With the newer eeprom Boot code you can boot a Pi 4B up by momentarily grounding GPIO 3, physical Pin 5. With a config.txt edit adding dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown you can have it do a proper shut down my grounding that same pin. With the factory shipped eeprom Boot code I believe you have to use the gl...
