Re: Upgrading to Bullseye on RPi 2 kills ethernet

I don't have a fix, just advice. You should not really be updating a headless system with unreleased and not recommended upgrade procedures. As you have found, fixing issues after the event is not easy. I forgot to say that I really appreciate this advice :) I'll remember to check for info on recom...

When will Bullseye become a recommended release? It's the new stable since a while back.

Upgrading to Bullseye on RPi 2 kills ethernet

I have a problem with my headless RPi 2: I pulled down a fresh raspbian lite image, which is still Buster. Then I plugged it into my router and set a DHCP reservation. All worked fine, I could SSH to it and everything. So I connected to it and changed the default password. Then I went through all th...

Lightweight portable computer with RPi 1B/1B+ ?

I have a bunch of old RPis lying around and I'd like make something interesting with them. A portable unit sounds like a fun idea, but when I do image searches for RPi laptops or cyberdecks or just portable computers all the things I find look big, bulky and heavy . For reference I have an Asus netb...

Which ActivityPub/Fediverse server software do you recommend?

I've recently upgraded my home server to a RPi 3B. This is powerful enough that I'm running WonderCMS and theLounge on it, and now I'm looking for a fediverse service to run on it as well. It MUST support ActivityPub, because I believe that's the most dominant open source social network protocol -- ...

Re: Lightweight word processor (alternative to LibreOffice Writer)?

Yes, I use vim on a daily basis. But vim is a text editor. It doesn't have the features one normally looks for in a word processor. And before anyone asks: yes, I have experience with LaTeX too. While LaTeX makes scientific article writing a breeze, it's a total time sink if you want to produce a do...

Lightweight word processor (alternative to LibreOffice Writer)?

There used to be several alternatives to the full-blown office suites, but as the number of people with limited RAM and CPU capacity has dwindled so has interest and development of office software with a smaller memory footprint. So, what's still out there? And specifically: what's available for ras...

Setting up a simple firewall, turned on/off with systemctl

My laziness bit back earlier today when I tried to update raspbian. I had set up a very simple firewall that was started by an init script. Apparently that init script didn't act as systemd expected it too; for some reason apt-get dist-upgrade couldn't resolve dependencies because it ended up in a w...

Re: Security

Do you mean that your SD card is encrypted and you don't want to type a code when booting? What do you want to protect it *from*? Someone who may access your Pi remotely, or someone with physical access to your Pi?

Re: Can we use WiFi on the Pi for file sharing?

Once you have it set up as an access point you can host a web server on it and serve files that way. Nextcloud (as mentioned) is one way of doing that.

You'll need to find a dictionary to use first. When you find one you can decide how to proceed depending on the format it's in.

Your question is reasonable, but the behaviour you're describing is entirely normal to the ssh server. Where a password field in a web browser normally shows dots or stars instead of the characters you're typing in, the ssh password prompt simply doesn't show anything.

This is pico-8

Pics and tips are welcome :)
