Re: Documentation Error - Remote Access

The script that enables ssh is this: https://github.com/RPi-Distro/raspberrypi-sys-mods/blob/master/debian/raspberrypi-sys-mods.sshswitch.service It looks for “ssh” and “ssh.txt” in the boot partition, a FAT filesystem. FAT is not case sensitive so SSH or SsH.TxT end up in lowercase. Correct - ther...

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

I've re-imaged my SSD and tested the new package from untested. The error message from the CEC adaptor plugin in Kodi is still there, but otherwise Kodi works fine. (I don't use CEC). A minor niggle is the list of keyboard layouts within Kodi does not appear to have any logical order - it should pro...

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

... The default was -1 because when I started to compile Kodi on the RPi 2, at least on mine, it sometimes failed with 4. But yes, if you want to change that, just add BUILD_THREADS=X I may be wrong but I believe that you can do that alsor with -j X With a space. Thanks - I tried it with -j6 (witho...

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

... So it looks like it is the kodi package itself that is pulling in these problematic dependencies. Confirmed. I installed kodi-bin_19.3-1~bullseye_armhf.deb first, which worked fine and produced no errors. I then installed kodi_19.3-1~bullseye_all.deb which produced the same dependency errors as...

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

My recommendation of 6 is based on the idea that nprocs * 1.5 is optimal for concurrency when compiling software on Linux, so perhaps the script should say this: BUILD_THREADS=$(( $(nproc)*3/2)) Or perhaps nprocs * 2, which would match the previous recommended concurrency of 8.

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

To speed up compilation, pass the parameter -j6 to the build script: ./build_rpi_debian_packages.sh -j6 Edit: Actually scrub that - the script is written so it runs (nproc - 1) compilation jobs concurrently, so needs edited to increase this to 6: 1. Comment out line 13 so it reads: #BUILD_THREADS=$(...

Re: Building kodi on Bullseye RPiOS

I get some errors at startup that appear to be related to 'jack', but they seem to be harmless. Once Kodi has started I also get an erro...

Re: Difficulties after changing ISP

The way I do "static" IP addresses on my home network is to configure them as DHCP address reservations on the DHCP server, which in my case is a Raspberry Pi running Pi-hole. In your case, your ISP-supplied router is the DHCP server (unless you have disabled it and installed your own). So...

Re: About the New Raspberry Pi 4b cpu revision

Does that mean this change has more to do with the PMIC than the stepping? Yes. It appears the upgraded secondary PMIC is the actual requirement. My Pi 4B 8GB v1.4 with B0 stepping now runs at 1.8GHz with the stock Bullseye config.txt. Correct - it's the board being rev 1.4 or higher that is what g...

That was the date the final RC was built, on which final testing was done.
And which appear to have been publicly released only this morning, since that's the date in the directory name, i.e. 2021-11-08.
