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

Those are the wrong files.
You need to download the raspios_full_armhf/ folder
From the https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/ website.

It is easiest to use the download feature in PINN which will do it for you.

I have been trying to get windows on raspberry pi (WOR) working but can't work out the partition setup, I either get windows needs a boot partition or it boots to a windows recovery screen.. Do you have any tips in regards to this?

Thanks...

As you are posting here, are you trying to get it working under PINN in a multi-boot scenario?
If so, I'm afraid you are on your own. I haven't looked at it at all apart from googling WOR after reading your post.
I stumbled across https://www.worproject.ml/ which suggests it needs a GPT partitioned drive. PINN uses MBR.
IIRC someone got PINN working with GPT, but I'm not supporting it at present.

WinIOT was supported by Microsoft and they used partition_setup for handling the partitions themselves. Maybe you have to do a similar thing with WOR as well.

How can I create my own repo? And package my own OS images? For an updated Ubuntu Mate, Manjaro and Diet pi for Raspberry Pi 4 8 GB.

@Solid Rhino - apologies if the PINN versions of the mentioned OSes are not quite the latest ones. It takes quite a while to convert and test each one and I'm rather swamped at the moment. Normally an installed OS can be easily updated once a version has been installed.
Details of how to convert an OS for installation by PINN are detailed in the README_PINN.md file on github, and in my wiki.
If you have the time to convert any newer versions, I am always ready to update my images with new tested versions so feel free to send them to me so that everyone can benefit. Otherwise you can host them your self by creating your own os_list_v3.json file, or simply install them from a local USB stick.

Good morning

I want to replace batocera with recalbox, but it gives me an error that the number of partitions is not compatible.
I have seen that recalbox uses 3 partitions and batocera 2.
I have tried to convert batocera in projectspace to recalbox but it has not worked. I have created a new partition with gparted and assigned it to os_config.json prjboot partition and it has not worked. Any solution?

Thank you

Replacing an OS is limited to one that can fit into the existing partition space, since in this case, PINN is merely re-using the existing partitions.
If you can manually repartition your drive correctly, and convince PINN that batocera actually uses 3 partitions, you might be able to replace it with recalbox.
Otherwise, you could backup all your existing OSes to a USB drive, then restore the backups that you want plus recalbox, but it may take a little while to do.

How can you connect to PINN via VNC through ssh tunnel for security? There is nothing in the forums or online that explains how to do this? I already tried, but tight vnc or real vnc viewers just does not connect. Tried with windows 10 powershell ssh and putty.

Can you confirm that you can access PINN via VNC normally and can also access it via SSH normally? - it's just that you want to access VNC through an SSH tunnel?

EDIT: I just found your other post and clearly you have some more fundamental issues going on. Let us continue the discussion over there.

Dear procount

First of all i want to thank you, for all of your hard work on PINN...

Is there any chance that the latest lineage os 17.1 builds by Konstakang will be added to PINN? Or is it simply to time consuming, and hard to add these images?

These work great on the raspberry pi unlike the more sluggish 16.0 versions.

Thanks again👍

I have a number of OSes outstanding to either update or add.
Many can be upgraded post-install, but some can't.
I shall try to find some time to focus on these.
