Based on history, you should be prepared for a wait of 3 months or longer before Raspbian makes the switch. +1 probably ubuntu impish will be released faster.

Re: WiFi over WiFi configuration for Raspberry Pi

The Wi-Fi is dead until you do something to set it up. You'll need to plug the Ethernet into a network that you have access to - one with DHCP (e.g. a Wi-Fi router). You may be able to log into it using ssh to raspberrypi.local. Otherwise, you will need to do some work (nmap) to find the ip address ...

Re: Pi Zero W: Max. number of WiFi clients?

As others have intimated, the Pi Zero Wifi won't have the range of some options that cost more than its $5 price, but it should support light traffic from dozens of client just fine. I'd give it a try.

You could try a debuild from a copy of the git repository on the Pi, to make a proper deb. You would also need the orig.tar file in the parent directory.
I'm going to have to retract that recommendation. There are many problems with the debian directory configuration for that project.

Should I compile from source tarball then? You could try a debuild from a copy of the git repository on the Pi, to make a proper deb. You would also need the orig.tar file in the parent directory. Roughly: sudo apt-get install build-essential devscripts git wget ...orig.tar.xz git clone ... cd ... ...

Re: Raspbian source code image

I believe that you are asking "How can I package my software for inclusion with the Raspbian repository".

The answer is to submit it (https://wiki.debian.org/Packaging) to Debian. For the most part, Raspbian packages flow from that.

As thagrol says, it is in /var/spool/cron/crontabs. But I suspect you are asking the wrong question. You don't really need to know where the file is, you can edit it with "crontab -e". And it sounds like your real problem is running with the right privileges. For that, you'll want to use o...

Re: Is there a way to encrypt a single folder on a USB stick or usb drive

cryfs, encfs, or gocryptfs are similar command-line utilities that mount encrypted data as a folder at a place you choose, using fuse.

sirikali is a GUI app that can manage them.

Re: Why is raspbian.raspberrypi.org non-https?

Note that, while the protocol is not secure, there is a chain of cryptographic signatures for the index files and deb file contents, tied back to an encryption key on your computer. These are verified by apt*. You should not need to worry about non-Raspbian files getting installed. Take a look in so...

Re: Want to build a custom Raspbian .img, but would like to learn the foundation...

I'll say two things.

It's pretty easy to self-host pi-gen on a 32 GB SD Raspbian card. It's actually much faster on a Pi than on my desktop, due to QEMU overhead.

Pi-gen is a lightweight wrapper around the command line process for generating the image. The layout is easy to follow.
