Motion EyeOS Raspberry Pi 4 Not booting

I'm having issue with my 2018 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B and Motion Eye OS. It simply wont boot. I know it works well with Raspian and the attached Camera but it wont boot at all.
I'm using the official imager software and etcher but still no luck.
Any thoughts?

I've got a GS-3360bb continuous servo and it is working ....well turning. I cant get it to return to a specific position. I want it to be able to go back to 0 - 90 - 180 - 270 - 360.

Is this a lost cause, do I need a some extra hardwhere?

PiGlow not as root

I'm trying to run start python script from init.d following http://www.pietervanos.net/knowledge/st ... om-init-d/ it all looks good but the PiGlow i'm trying to use needs to run as root.

So I'm stuck how can I get init.d to run a service as root or get the PiBow scripts not to.

Re: Python + MS SQL

Thanks for the feedback. The problem was with pymssql there was a bug where no result rows are returned from queries. This is fixed in 2.1.0 which we had to download and compile ourselves.

Python + MS SQL

Has anyone managed to get Python on a Pi talking to MS SQL (yes I mean Microsoft SQL)
If not does anyone know of any other languages that do work. Python appears to be missing some binary that haven't been installed.

Gertduino & Wireless card dropping out

When I'm running my GertDuino and connecting via ssh with a wireless card i find that when the NeoPixels (strip of 30) starts to run, often the network card doesn't respond. Could this be a power thing? Maybe driving 30 NeoPixels drains the power and the WiFi runs out of juice? This doesn't always h...

Re: Arduino IDE

I took the "-master" off the end of the folder name and it worked.

I dont know why but it appears that the .h file was named without a - in the name which it needed.

Thanks all

Re: email to run a script

The idea is to hopefully connect the Pi to some hardware and make some lights glow. The email will come from an SNMP monitoring solution, so if the Pi gets an email some equipment has failed. A big red light shows the room there is a problem.
