Re: Adding an OS to an existing SSD System

No, not anywhere , but somewhere . Why is it important to specify a particular partition? You should read https://github.com/raspberrypi/noobs/wiki/NOOBS-partitioning-explained that explains how the NOOBS partitioning works. The NOOBC v1.5 onwards section is relevant. I would suggest using Matt's we...

Re: Uncompressed .tar instead of .tar.xz for custom images in PINN?

Tar.xz is generally the most compressed form, but tar, tar.zip, tar.bz2 and probably some others can all be used.

Re: Adding an OS to an existing SSD System

You can use Matt's webpage (http://pinn.mjh.nz) to control the size of each OS, and install a Data Partition to reserve a partition of a specific size, which can then be used for something else, or repartitioned with gparted afterwards as required. What is not easy is to ADD an OS to a PINN installa...

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

What does "Remove drive restrictions on Clone SD" mean? Previously, I blocked copying a device to /dev/mmcblk0 because that is normally where PINN is, however, that is not the case when using USB-BOOT so I have lifted that restriction. But the user must now be more careful that the target device is...

Re: Adding an OS to an existing SSD System

PINN includes the functionality of the PiDrive Foundation edition in the form of its ProjectSpaces. However, this does not avoid the problem the OP faces of having to backup his original OS, install PiDrive/PINN/Berryboot, and then re-install his backup. But if the requirement is to simply add media...

Re: Adding an OS to an existing SSD System

It's not easy to add an OS switcher and additional OSes to an existing card. In most cases you will need to backup your existing system, install your bootloader of choice, then reinstall your backup with additional OSes. In the case of Berryboot, you would need to convert your backup to a squashfs f...

PINN can use VNC.
Which model of RPi do you have? Not sure if LineageOS runs on the Pi4 yet, but Konsta will tell you.

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

Glad you sorted it. PINN & NOOBS only work on the primary display (HDMI0), the left one nearest the USB-C power socket on a Pi4. The other indication that you are using the incorrect monitor is that the secondary display (normally HDMI1, the right most connector away from the USB-C power socket) wil...

Understood. At the moment you're just using QT to get a graphics library into your program, but as you learn more about it you will come to realise that QT is not just about graphics - it is a whole cross platform framework. Although you can just use the graphics elements, as you use it more you may...

As you wish - just trying to hand out some best practice I've picked up along the way. Signals and slots just helps avoid mutexes and deadlocks and all that jazz.

For that purpose I want to call either graph functions wherever and whenever I want and need, just like writing text values or messages arbitrarily into either text widgets, and all that as directly and simple as possible.

If you shutdown the pi from the desktop or the cli, does the case power off?
I just tried it with the script installed, and yes it all powered off. Not sure without the script, but probably not.

Re: qt creator: Quit Button: program crashes (not terminates)

Whilst the connect() function can be used to connect arbitrary signals to slots, if you have designed it graphically using the QTCreator, you can just click "goto slot" which will automatically create a function of the correct name. QT will then automatically connect the signal to the slot without t...

Yes, there is a microcontroller in there that communicates over i2c. Holding the button for ~5 secs will forcibly shutdown the power. For a soft shutdown (~2-5 secs) or a reboot (double-click) you need the script to be running to recognise the GPIO pin (although argon told me something different on ...
