Re: matchbox-keybaord layout with no numbers

Where did you find the deb package? You may be able to find it elsewhere, but I used the apt download only feature while on Buster to download it. Also, after further tinkering I found that the deb file wouldn't install due to missing dependencies on a fresh Bullseye install. To get around this on ...

Re: matchbox-keybaord layout with no numbers

I just needed to use the "Ctrl" button again last night which put this on my mind again. Yes, it has been reported elsewhere. It seems hardly anyone else uses it as it has been mentioned rarely and a month later no fix. I just did some experimenting. The following are what is installed res...

Re: Bullseye - Comments and bug reports thread.

I am getting the VNC window showing on desktop after around half of my reboots when logged in via VNC.

It also pops up everytime I issue the following command (I use it when running my customization script):

Code: Select all

Disable ETH0 or dhcpcd BEFORE First Boot

Anyone know a way to modify the source so that ETH0 or dhcpcd is disabled before the first boot?

I know how to do it on subsequent boots but would like to be able to disable ETH0 during setup.

Thanks

Re: raspberry pi 4 boot from ssd

The bootloader supporting MSD booting for the RPI 4 went critical a week ago, so it will be installed automatically upon updating - I am surprised there hasn't been any posts here about it. However, it is not changing the boot order when it installs so without further action it will hang looking for...

My "best" SD card up and quit working for recovery, though works fine for everything else. I loaded the recovery file to an older SD card and it worked fine.

The simplest way is to download the beta EEPROM recovery image (github.com/raspberrypi/rpi-eeprom/files/4770700/rpi-boot-eeprom-recovery-2020-06-12-vl805-000137ad-BETA.zip) and make a recovery SD card.

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

Does any of this persist from one installation to another? Meaning, if I followed the bootloader update instructions a week ago, would they still be on the Pi or would that have reverted back with every new OS installation afterward? Yes it does.

I have enabled TRIM on my SSD and have enabled fstrim.timer to run as a service. When I reboot, checking with "systemctl status fstrim.timer" it appears that the timer is restarting upon reboot. It also appears that fstrim.timer only runs after 1 week. Given I reboot daily it appears to me...

If this is the case, what will become of the initial root file system expansion? Will it stay the same for SD and just be ignored when using a USB drive? Why would it be ignored? USB devices will need to be expanded as well. FYI, automatic rootfs partition expansion already works correctly on USB b...
