Re: New "Can't update Chromium" message?

I could check the default interval again, but IIRC, it's 2 hours. If you keep the browser running for 2 hours without closing it, it should pop up. The only explanation I can think of for you not seeing it earlier this week would be that it hasn't been open for 2 continuous hours. ok, that is possi...

No, I think it takes 2 hours for the message to show up and should've started roughly when this thread started. If you haven't seen it, you may have not had the browser open for that long. since november 2019, my RPi4B (4GB) has become my main web browser computer i use daily many times. it is 24/7...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

I was thinking more of the latter. Like multiboot from PXE. If you could PXE boot and select the OS from a menu, that'll be great. normally the PXE " specification " already has the ability of a primitive multi boot menu. but it depends on how far this ability is implemented in the RPi firmware. i ...

Re: Odd routing, cannot force 4b Pi to 2.4 GHz wifi (wpa_supplicant)

strange that there is no possibility to force a client to use only a specific band... what are all those configuration options good for, when they do not work... (i guess it should work since 2015 - commit & test ) maybe you can ask the wpa_supplicant maintainer directly - https://w1.fi/wpa_supplica...
