Re: Moving Linux Kernel to 5.10

It's using an SSD, so I don't know how it would be recovered which is why I am asking.

Re: Moving Linux Kernel to 5.10

Can dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d be used on 5.10.17-v7l+ #1421 without ill effects?

I recall testing this a while back and got a black screen on a PI4.

Thanks.

Re: Moving Linux Kernel to 5.4

Since kernel 5.9 has these newer patches, is rpi-update going to be updated to let users try it out? Considering how and why and this thread was originally started it makes logical sense. However, I’m sure there are more pressing reasons why 5.4 is still being worked on. Most people don't care abou...

Re: Extreame screen tearing on Raspberry Pi 4

As I said, KMS should fix it, so that is where work is being done. But KMS isn't ready as somethings still don't work correctly. You could try it - the driver is available. Blank screen when I boot :( At least I tried. For anyone else who wants to test the KMS driver: https://www.raspberrypi.org/fo...

Re: Extreame screen tearing on Raspberry Pi 4

Interesting. We've not had time to investigate the tearing yet, but this is a good pointer. Thanks! Have you been able to identify why there is screen tearing? It's as if the window manager doesn't have vsync turned on unless it's running in full screen video mode. It really makes the RPi seem very...

Overclocking/YouTube Issues

YouTube performance was just hideous for my two RP4s for a while. I could only run in 480 resolution. Any higher resolution and YouTube would just buffer. Come to find out the developers made a change to overclocking (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/overclocking.md...

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.15.2 on Pi4

Thanks for this. I was able to install this to the same directory and crazy enough I can run both versions 1.12.2 or 1.15.2. The main hangup for me is the performance is much worse. I would typically get about 50-60 fps in 1.12.2, not I get about half that: 25-30 :( I assume that there are few thing...

So are people just saying that webcams dont work generally, or that some specific webcams don't work? I would expect most to work fine on the Pi4.

Re: Google Hangouts with Raspberry Pi 4B - Request to Raspbian Foundation

That's great, but I still feel the lack of microphone and drop in webcam is something the foundation could do to improve the idea that the PI is a desktop replacement. Well, to be fair, most desktops (not talking about those All-In-Ones, but the classic CPU tower + Monitor + Mouse + Keyboard) don't...

Thank you for the fix. I didn't want to test it just to find out I have a brick. The shift key trick doesn't work for my 4B on boot. Perhaps it's my keyboard?

Yeah, it seems like with the school closings and everything going online learning it's very very hard to find an affordable webcam (hi demand -low inventory) AND that may or may not work with the RPI.
