I use the SD-card only to read cmdline.txt and the kernel.
the amount of data is about 750GB, as the usb-hdd is 1TBPersonally I would be inclined to start over with new SD card, USB stick whatever, then copy over all the data from the old headless media. Having a backup or two is always a good idea.
VNC just echoes the existing desktop to a remote system, so yes (so far as I know) if you hook up a monitor, you'll have output. Caveat...you may need to reboot after connecting the monitor unless you've specified "force_hdmi" in /boot/config.txt. (That last is, I suspect, rather unlikely given your initial setup.)fred44nl wrote: ↑Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:01 pmstarted out with Raspbian Jessie Light.
on there, I installed the required software, like Sabnzbd+, Deluge, miniDLNA and Plexmediaserver.
sometime ago, I upgrade the system to Stretch, still being Lite.
to-day I followed viewtopic.php?t=133691 which gives me a desktop, which I can reach with VNC.
does this mean I also HDMI output ??
so, I did Raspi-Config and changed the boot option to boot into the Desktop under my user-name. and after rebooting I got my desktop showing on the TV.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade sudo apt -y install raspberrypi-ui-mods sudo apt -y install chromium-browser #install VNC Server from sudo raspi-config #add SD Card Copier sudo apt update sudo apt -y full-upgrade sudo apt -y install piclone
ok, installed RealVNC on both ends, i.e. server and viewer.
