Definitely not reading.

Is Pi trading really for sale?

I read the Register article (comments here: https://forums.theregister.com/forum/al ... i_listing/), but I am not sure whether Eben says yea or nay.

Is Pi going to end up in China or USA, or in limbo like ARM?

Re: Why no warning?

I have gradually built up what I consider a pretty useful set of warnings that I can keep clear in my own code:

Code: Select all

-pedantic -Wall -Wshadow -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes -Wextra -Wconversion
I would be interested in comments, and possible additions . . . !

Re: Bullseye - Comments and bug reports thread.

We've never supported multiple workspaces (those are the things where you can have multiple desktops and switch between them?), and by that I mean, they may or may not work, but we don't enable or test them, and if they don't work, then we are unlikely to fix them.

Re: Bullseye - Comments and bug reports thread.

I have set arm_freq = 2100 on a Pi400, and it is using up to 2200 (according to time_in_state), so overclocking seems to be different, and at odds with the online docs last time I read them ;) I only went up to 2100 before because 2200 used to need over-voltage & turbo mode and set the licence i...

Systemd runs units as root, by default. In this case you don’t need sudo at all.
Simpler to just use root's crontab or the system crontab ;)

I guess the moral of all this is either use NOPASSWD, or just use root!

Is that's what's going on? Nope. It's also worth noting that a more secure arrangement would be a pull-type setup where the backup server logs into the Pi to fetch the files for the mirror operation rather than the other way around.
