Re: I can't get the wpa_supplicant.conf to work

Using Buster on the B+, the WiFi adapter seems to be working correctly since `iwlist` shows my WiFi network, so I assume it's something to do with wpa_supplicant. No idea what to try next though. Copy the wpa_supplicant.conf file from your Stretch card to your Buster card. If it still doesn't work,...

"--allow-releaseinfo-change" addresses this specific issue and is there to be used in this specific case. Both may work, but only one is the right ...

Raspbian now has 3 kernel images in /boot

Noticed Raspbian Buster now has three kernel image files in the /boot directory - kernel.img, kernel7.img and kernel7l.img.

Would I be right in assuming the new kernel7l.img is for the Pi 4?
