- ScreenSwitch - Performs automatic screen switching at bootup
- dhcpcd - Now configurable
A tiny vesion of the nano text editor has been added to the recovery shell for easier editing.
It is now possible to rename an OS by providing it with an Alias name. The description can also be edited, which helps when you have installed multiple copies of the same OS for different purposes.
The underlying OS name remains the same so that new versions of the base OS can be identified.
Full touchscreen kernel drivers have been added for the Pimoroni Hyperpixel 3.5" and 4.0" displays. These are composite drivers that also configure the LCD screen, so it is only necessary to
add the appropriate entries to config.txt to load the driver. THe hyperpixel-display.zip and hyperpixel4-display.zip packages are therefore no longer needed. Sample config.txt files are provided as config.hyp3 & config.hyp4.
is a package of files that allow PINN to detect and switch between 4 display types: HDMI, DSI (rpf touchscreen) and the Hyperpixel 3.5" and 4.0" screens at bootup.
Just unzp them to the same folder as PINN.
In the case where mutiple screens are attached at the same time, enter your preferred screen on the first line of `screenpref` as hdmi, dsi, hyp3 or hyp4.
When PINN detects a different screen is fitted, it will reconfigure itself and reboot to make this take effect, so it takes slightly longer to boot in this instance. The idea is that no matter which of these screens is fitted, PINN will always be able to make its display visisble. athough there are some limitations with the RPF DSI Touchscreen.
The dhcpcd.conf configuration file has now been made configurable in the same way as wpa_supplicant.conf. This enables static IP addresses to be configured, for example.
