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

@chrisino

What you are asking in "Windows terms" is
- I want to shrink my Windows drive & install another version of Windows in the free space (all while I'm still booted in Windows).

Pretty sure Windows wouldn't do that "so easily".

Re: Remote Reboot to another OS with NOOBS

For OS's that don't work with reboot [part] or /sys/module/bcm2708/parameters/reboot_part, I load in a simple executable which does the reboot [part] logic.

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

All done.

Its called Lakka_RPi2_Dev
Description "The DIY retro emulation console (Developer build)"

Made a few tweaks to OS.json to make it PINN friendly (download size, url etc)

@FJaeger
You should be able to see & install it in the PINN menu now via the internet.
No need to install via USB.

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

@FJaeger I just noticed they provide a NOOBS package already. Download the *-noobs.tar file. Extract that (use 7zip on windows) Copy that Lakka_RPi2 to your OS folder inside PINN. That's all you should need to do as NOOBS packages are compatible with PINN :D @procount Do you think I should add a Lak...

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

@ccunnin71 Should be fixed now. The issue was that RetroPie3 was renamed RetroPie2 recently-ish. There was an error in my web app that meant it was using an old version of scraped data. To fix, either change "retropie3" to "retropie2" in your cmdline.txt http://pinn.mjh.nz/os_list.json?retropie2=737...

If you want to skip having to manually resize the partitions, I have a web app that can do it for you.
It allows setting the initial partition sizes.

I'll look into adding a dialog to:

with "extra" details (eg. website address, default login details)
As all the info is already scraped and available - it won't be hard.

Re: Problem when trying to run python scripts from apache ph

See my answer here:
viewtopic.php?f=32&t=111380&p=764439#p764439

Basically you make a Python API wrapper to do your GPIO functions.

This way, Apache doesn't need any extra permissions and remains secure.
