Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

The webapp link is not dead. http://pinn.mjh.nz If you are just resizing (and not adding it deleting OSes) then you could do it with gparted. Ohh thank you. That should do me for now between those two things. Btw, yes the link you posted here is broken, but thanks for the new one https://imgur.com/...

So, I formatted and reinstalled my now 3 partitions. Great! This time I left spaces with the uhm spacer items you provide. Fast forw...

Re: HOT Raspberry Pi 4 - 4GB

I wasn't particularly impressed with the Pi4 Flirc case, but I must admit that it does work. Probably not as well as it could and in hindsight I could have bought a much better cooling solution for less money. I'd still recommend it, but indeed its poorly made and designed.

sharing a bluetooth keyboard, without tearing hair out?

Hey folks So, as some of you might, I have several devices in the living room. Up until lately, I had kind of a mess of wireless mini keyboards and remotes that take each their own dongles. I got a little sick of that, so I thought maybe I can get everything to use a little bluetooth keyboard I have...

Re: How to check if dynamic memory split is working?

Sorry to be dense here, but does this mean there's no way to dynamically assign video memory in raspbian anymore? For example to run Kodi but then go back to more regular ram intensive applications? No, there is no way to dynamically assign gpu_mem to hand memory back to the ARM. The old mechanism ...

for raspbian10/debian10 why not use zram-tools which is found in official repositories rather than zram-config ?

Re: Update download speeds slow B/s

Did you get this sorted out? I'm getting crap d/l speeds for updating as well although not quite as bad as you are.
Running a speedtest on the pi shows it can d/l at 30 Mbs.
