Re: Cannot Login to Pi lite , no keyboard for password

My Pi4 8GB completed the HPL benchmark at 2100MHz and passed!
It failed at 2150MHz (system froze).

No fan of course, just a largish stick-on passive heat sink.
Impressive!

What over voltage did you use? Also, are you overclocking the gpu aswell?

Re: MicroSD slowness

the bootloader configuration setting POWER_OFF_ON_HALT=1 turns off the USB ports on shutdown. Is this really necessary? I doubt the Raspberry Pi foundation would officially allow booting from USB and then not announce to users that this change is necessary for safe operation. I have been wrong befo...

Re: Overclocking past 2.147GHz on the Pi4

My system is completely stable, even under load. In my opinion every MHz can you squeeze out of your chip is important. I run a local Minecraft server on it sometimes, too, and single-threaded performance is important! @dominic03 I think you can claim that your system is stable under *normal* load....

Re: Want to create a VPN

What are you trying to accomplish with the VPN? I mean, will your RPI be involved in heavy tasks when acting as your VPN server? I don't see why 2GB should not be enough is all you need is access to your home network.

Is the static ip that you've assigned able to be assigned by the router?

My rpi is at 192.168.1.100. My router cannot assign this ip to another device because it's out of the range of allowable assignments.

Perhaps look into that.

No thanks. It's a 138mb download.

Decided to instal Thunar. It's far better than the default included in raspberry pi os and it's only 13mb.

Re: Anyone successfully connect a large HDD (not SSD) to their rpi? Did you use external power?

In my testing I have found you can't really run dual HDD reliably from a Raspberry Pi's USB ports alone. It might be possible to get the system to boot and mount both drives (I've done it), but anything that requires heavy I/O to both drives will eventually (if not immediately) fail. You can do dua...

Yes, 100% sure. They're in an enclosure and include a SATA to USB adaptor, but the drives are definitely 2.5" and only usb powered. For example, the 4TB model and a 500GB I removed from its housing. Great. Thanks for the picture. I still keep hearing from people that connecting HDDs to the rpi...

First, I think the latest update you mentioned is beta I believe so you're likely to experience problems.

Second, I'm not sure what you're saying exactly. Are you trying to boot from a micro sd card that's inside an SD card to USB adapter?
