Re: Request for update nullmailerpackage

Not going to happen. Debian (and also Raspbian) generally don't do version updates once a new major version (Jessie, Stretch) is released. Ok, thats an argument, but in between 2013 and now there was at least Raspbian Stretch, perhaps wheezy, so it should have been updated, shouldn't it? Debian hav...

Re: can a python file be made to run in a way that is not humanly readable?

That said, most people cannot decompile C code, and there are ways of writing it that make it more difficult to understand (actually, that's most C code anyway) Better yet use Perl, that can be really unreadable!

Re: Bouncing an idea.(wire power through spare ethernet wires)

Someone, please correct me if I am wrong, has anyone considered running jumpers from 2 spare pins on the Eth port to the underside connectors of the power connector? I am struggling to see why this would not work but I do not have the spare money to risk burning out one of my pi's. The pins coming ...

Re: REAL MySQL instead of MariaDB

I think you are missing the point. I have never had an issue with MySQL with root access even as soon as last week, You're also missing the last point I made. Yes an old version of MySQL on an older OS will still ask for a root password, that doesn't mean newer versions will still do the same thing...

Re: REAL MySQL instead of MariaDB

My point is its not drop in if there are differences. I would agree there could be a security issue using root to login although I've never encountered a problem. Using root or another user is another discussion. This is the difference I found that makes MariaDB not a drop in for MySQL. You may wel...

See "systemctl status nfs-server.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
What's the output of the two commands it told you to run to get details ?
(you might need to run them with sudo, and potentially just after trying to start/re-start the nfs service)

Re: Using RPI with camera below 0 Celsius?

I've seen some that have been modified to add a nice clear perspex window for use with a camera. As well as that if you can add some insulation around the Pi that might well mean it...

Re: What are these 2 Ethernet devices on my LAN?

Generally, your router should get the lowest non-zero address in the local block. In your case, that would be 10.0.0.1. If you look at the network configuration on any device on your LAN, it should show a "Gateway address". That will be the LAN address of the router. It doesn't have to be, for a /2...

DMX uses a differential bus so you probably can't drive it directly from the Pi. However with the a su...
