Re: Installing on Linux 64bit

There's a 64-bit version of Raspberry Pi Imager in the Raspberry Pi OS repo. If you want a version for a different distro then your best bet is probably to find a build specific to that distro. Or just learn how to use dd on the command line: sudo dd if=imagefile.bz2 of=/dev/sdX bs=1M status=progres...

Re: Changing the CPU throttle temperature set point (CM4)

The Pi 4 also uses 28nm silicon, while Pi 3 is on 40nm, so clock for clock it produces less heat.

Re: Announcement of discontinuation on RS website

Did RS indicate why they abandoned manufacturing the Pi? I'm not sure you're ever likely to get an official answer on that one, but if I had to guess, it would be because more of the Raspberry Pi range is now manufactured by Raspberry Pi themselves, rather than through an IP licensing deal with Far...

Re: Changing the CPU throttle temperature set point (CM4)

Actually, it looks like it might be better to rename the overclocking section instead, since those settings can also be used for underclocking, and fine-tuning the clocks to meet thermal restrictions, for example. I will have a look.

Have you tried forcing the requested resolution from kernel command line? Add below - with 1280x800 used as example only - to your cmdline.txt. That uses HDMI0; in case of HDMI1 use 'HDMI-A-2' video=HDMI-A-1:1280x800M@60 would be beneficial if you'll let us know which resolution you want to use. Th...
