Re: Rpi4 w/ several USB harddrives idle spindown

There are a lot of threads about "automounting" in the forum, beware that half of them relate in fact to some USB/udev daemon that mounts USB devices when you plug them in. Same idea, same name (...) but not the same usage. Hence my confusion. I thought this was what you are talking about. Thanks f...

Re: Rpi4 w/ several USB harddrives idle spindown

Solution 1: Use the automounter and let the firmware in the drives do their job when the drives are unmounted and idle for a while. Solution 2: fliddling with hdparm, sdparm, ext4 settings, etc. Are you suggesting manually unmounting when I am done? Because this drive will be accessed over the netw...

Re: iptables not saving after reboot

The “pre-up” bit is a keyword valid only in /etc/network/interfaces. Since the use of that file is deprecated, do not concern yourself with it. You can add command “iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.rules” in file /etc/rc.local to get the iptables rules restored at boot time. Thank you that suggesti...

Managed to resolve my issue by adding the following:

This isn't working for me, could you confirm? I can do iptables-restore < /etc/network/iptables.rules and that works.

Hi folks. I've been asking this everywhere and not getting any responses, and so this is my last hope. I want to use iptables to match based on UID for running container, and I’m using DSCP tagging for this (and I have configured the container to run as the user).

Ok, so the problem seems to be that if you create an "autostart" file for the pi user, LXDE does not load a default one. (this is my guess).

I'm having this same problem, and what I discovered is having an "autostart" file at all in /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/ - even if the file is empty causes this black screen problem. So remove your "autostart" file and you should be good. But I hope someone will come in and tell us how to use...
