Re: Can't change screen resolution on new pi zero 2

First update your OS with sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y followed by reboot. Add ",nocomposite" to vc4-kms-v3d in config.txt (dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d,nocomposite), reboot, then set the desired headless VNC resolution in Raspberry Pi Configuration (or raspi-config). If yo...

Re: How do I adjust the volume from the desktop in bullseye

Do you not have a mouse?

Clicking on the volume icon should drop down an adjustment slider (or you can hover over the volume icon and use the mouse scroll wheel to adjust the volume).

I'd try writing it with dd and see if it does the same thing. It sounds like a hardware problem to me though. Another option would be the cp command. sudo cp 2021-10-30-raspios-bullseye-armhf-full.img /dev/sdX Or unzip it directly to the card (as root, sudo won't work here): unzip -p 2021-10-30-ras...

Re: Headless VNC usage with grafic problems

* In WEB I found the tip to comment out the line dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d in the file /boot/config.txt. Then the SDR program runs, but has a CPU load of over 90% and is therefore no longer usable. Commenting out that line removes hardware graphics acceleration, so it's no surprise your CPU usage goes ...

There are also combo Ethernet + USB hub adapters, which do use the USB port, but also give you more. Some are even specifically for the Pi Zero (with a micro-USB cable, or in a Zero sized HAT-like form factor).

Your sudo mount --verbose /dev/sda1 command is incomplete, where is /dev/sda1 getting mounted?

Remove (or comment out) the mount line for your SSD from fstab and reboot (it should auto-mount),...

I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 B+.
The bootloader in a 3B+ cannot be damaged (it's hard coded into the SoC mask ROM). Those "fixes" you tried apply only to 4B models.

Try a freshly imaged card (your old OS was probably the thing that got damaged).

Re: Should I buy a Raspberry Pi 4 8gb model or not?

As said by aBUGSworstnightmare, you can run either the 32-bit or 64-bit OS on a 4GB or 8GB (I ran the Buster 64-bit beta on a 2GB model for months without issues). How much RAM the Pi4 has is more about what you plan on doing with the system. Streaming online video should work well on either model o...

I assume "New Partition UUIDs box" somehow fixes everything under the covers. It's generally a good idea, since having multiple partitions with the same PARTUUID will often result in the wrong one getting mounted (like, say, the root filesystem from your SD card getting mounted when you t...

Re: Boot from a non-blank SSD instead of existing SD-Card?

In any practical sense, no. Raspberry Pi OS is installed by writing a disk image to the drive, and in that process it overwrites anything previously on the disk. I'm sure if someone was determined enough, and had the necessary knowledge, it would be possible by adjusting the drive's partitions and c...
