Re: Pi 3 B+ WiFi issues: country?

Hi, I'm working on the configuration for a headless RPi 3 B+ and need to be able to get the WiFi connecting without requiring the user to connect to a terminal to do any manual setup. We had code in place that would supply the SSID and password in wpa_supplicant.conf but this isn't working now. I'v...

Re: Pi 3 B+ WiFi issues: country?

Thanks, exactly what I need. I have a Pi 3B and for no reasons, Wi-Fi drops regularly. I have a script which periodically checks connectivity and I use ifup/ifdown (still on Jessie) to bring it back up. Just in case, I want to to do the same for the 3B+ and I am going to use ip link command as you ...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ PoE Hat Questions (April 2018)

Thank you so much for the fast reply! I was not familiar with the standard I2C-based fan control process. I will do some more research to figure out the details on it. Regarding the headers, I now realize my question could have been clearer. What I wanted to know is whether the production board wil...

You can do it. You can start it in the background, sleep for the necessary amount of time and then kill the backgrounded job.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ PoE Hat Questions (April 2018)

1) The fan will be controlled using the standard mechanism provided by linux. It will be done through a mailbox call to the firmware, which will communicate to the board through I2C. 2) Not sure what you meean by passthrough options, but that unpopulated header is for programming and testing on the ...

Re: 2048 bit RSA too quick to generate?

Don't know how they're generated, so just taking a guess, but perhaps the VM didn't have enough entropy whereas actual running hardware did? Isn't that a common problem with generating keys in VMs?

Re: how to increase fps in raspbian-streach

I'd say don't use the experimental driver, since it doesn't sound like you need it. Look into using picamera and feeding data from that to opencv and back. Profile where the bottlenecks are and optimise what you can.

Other than that, there's not enough information to provide a solid answer.

Re: How Much of the Raspbian Stack is Open Source?

Also, although the firmware that runs on videocore is closed source, the userland libraries to talk to that firmware are open. In many cases, they're fairly simple functions that tell the firmware to do the heavy lifting, which some people don't like. Anholt has been doing a lot of work replacing so...

dist-upgrade is a once per generation thing. From Jessie to Stretch, and not again until the next.
That's a misconception.

Definitely possible, but how difficult it is would depend on the software and how its build system is set up. Got a link to what you need to build exactly?
