Re: Create a new user to replace defaut pi: no completion, color, .. in term

The first thing I would check is what the shell is for the new user (check the last field in /etc/passwd). At least in the old days, this always defaulted to either blank (i.e., the line ends with a : ) or /bin/sh - both of which mean the same thing - which means that you get ordinary sh (no bash f...

Create a new user to replace defaut pi: no completion, color, .. in term

Hello ! I am not a linux expert but I was using some scripts I always have used successfully in the past to create my devices ... I always write the image on my USB device, then create a new secured user in sudoers, then delete the default pi user so that my next steps are safe .. Doing so: sudo use...

Re: Unable to boot on USB

Sorry, I was not notified about the last answers. Yes, correct. I tried three distincts flash memory, at least two of them were working before with my RPI. The only USB component which is working is this microSD to USB adaptor, which is I guess a pretty good sign that the RPI as it is is able to boo...

Re: Unable to boot on USB

If the system is not booting from USB, then it won't be able to read any configuration files from the USB drive. So editing config.txt or cmdline.txt on the USB drive won't fix anything. Try verify the sha256 of the download to ensure you have a good copy and try writing it again (and don't extract...

Re: Unable to boot on USB

I just tried this option, but is also does not work. I made a test with my SD card connected into a SD to USB adapter, it works great, so at least I am really sure that OTP is correctly programmed. My USB stick was working well last time, but I will try to free another one just to check if it could ...

Unable to boot on USB

Hello, Some month ago I made a video tutorial on my RPI3B (not B+) on how to boot on USB, so avoid the steps of creating an SD card. I let my RPI aside for some weeks as I am mainly maintaining my installation based on a RPI2 B+ and some days ago I wanted to install latest raspbian (stretch) and ins...

Re: Change my boot SD card

Re: Change my boot SD card

I just tried again with easeUs, using backup bit level and restoring the same way. RPI2 is not booting ... again.

I have no idea what is going wrong here. Is there any information checked somewhere which is not hardcoded but linked to the SD card/drive which is used ?

How to debug that ?

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive [updated

Hello :) That the third or four time I am using this thread to move my RPI2 filesystem, and it is still so useful, thanks for that ! This time there is a last step I did not manage to do: usually what I do is that I use a good SD card (with 32GB, fast enough ...) and I install everything I need and ...

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive

Hello, I successfully went through all the steps of the "standard" procedure and everything is working fine. First question: I tried the extended procedure, juste in case another storage is plugged to my raspberry pi: Partition unique GUID: 81F1955D-9FB6-4F26-85AC-B4E65B6BCCCA Filesystem UUID: 0f13c...
