Re: Is DHCPCD Still Broken in Bullseye?

Definitely not an issue with dhcpcd itself then, if there ever was. Could be hardware-related: powered hub, PSU, loose USB plug… There are google results for earlier builds of Bullseye having having issues with DHCPCD, which is why I was assuming that is what it might be. I know it is not a hardwar...

Re: Is DHCPCD Still Broken in Bullseye?

There is (was?) a delay you can put in config.txt iirc, some USB devices are a bit slow to boot. Just attempted to put in a 10 second boot delay. Still the same issue. Other things I have tried include: Predictable Network Interface Names - no luck Wait for network on boot - no luck The wait for ne...

Re: Is DHCPCD Still Broken in Bullseye?

I'm certainly not defending either "Bullseye" or "dhcpcd" - both of which I think are lacking - but I think you need to do: $ ifconfig -a to see if eth0 is there, but just not "up". Did you do that? Just did, same result, eth0 is not there at all. I wonder why power cy...

Is DHCPCD Still Broken in Bullseye?

I am running the latest Bullseye Lite on my Raspberry Pi 0, fully up to date. This is not an updated Buster image, it was a fresh install done yesterday and updated today. I am running into the issue of the ethernet being fully down on reboot. Soft reboot, as in: sudo reboot -h now Running ifconfig ...

Re: Upgrading to Bullseye on RPi 2 kills ethernet

It does the same with the original Pi 0 (non-W) on a fresh install of RaspiOS Bullseye Lite (updated to latest). Rebooting via ssh causes it not to detect ethernet intermittently. Powering it down and back up seems to do the trick, but is inconvenient to say the least. And it is slower, I may migrat...

Re: BusyBox being installed on Buster Lite?

There's a new option in raspi-config that will set up your Pi to have a read-only root file system. To do that raspi-config needs the initramfs-tools installed. initramfs-tools depend on initramfs-tools-core, which recomends busybox. The default in Debian and Raspbian is to install Recomends as wel...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

Heat isn't only bad because of throttling. Extended periods of heat can eventually lead to premature failure of chips. So even if it's below the throttling threshold, it can still be detrimental in the long term. 30 years instead of 35 years ? :D I know it is highly unlikely and doesn't even apply ...

Re: Pi4 Cooling

Considering that temps jumped 10 degrees immediately after the first reading on the Flirc and rose a lot more steadily with the Wicked aluminum seems to kinda confirm that I think. What I think is that the point is to stay below throttling temperature, and the $15 Flirc does that (mine was $11.20 p...

In my case, it is saving to an external 1tb USB HDD. So not quite slow. And this is the same device it has been doing it to in both instances (on board ethernet and the adapter).
