Re: Volume is dirty (External HDD - NTFS)

To mount NTFS volums with r/w access you need to install the ntfs-3g package. The standard driver is less flexible (but faster) and only allows read access to NTFS.

Re: How to get latest apache2 and php versions on Raspbian Os

@geev03 Yes, but can you confirm that you have this running successfully on a raspberry pi? The issue is with php-7.3 being difficult on Raspbian... The current Raspbian (Buster) uses PHP 7.3 by default. The issue here was an old one. I don't currently have a Pi running that version and I don't hav...

Re: rsync - works from terminal but not as cron???

The id_rsa is the file you would use for that option, but that should be picked up as the default anyway without having to specify it.

I have no idea about this "GUI schedular" that you used. I just know simple crontab files. Is the command running from the standard "pi" crontab?

Re: need simple instructions for omxplayer install (no internet access on pi)

What OS are you running? omxplayer is already installed by default in Raspbian Buster. It's not in Buster Lite. Maybe that is what the OP is running. One option would be to download the .deb package for omxplayer, copy it to the Pi in question using a USB stick or something and use dpkg to install ...

Re: cannot build tensorflow from source

It should be noted that ffmpeg is available in the current Raspbian build, but as the compilation is taking place inside a Docker container it might be worth creating an issue on the tensorflow github page. I see they say they support all Pi models up to Pi 3 and Raspbian "9 and above" but I'm not s...

Re: RPi as virtual PDF printer hooked up throughout USB ?

The Pi can print to PDF using the cups-dpf package, but the only ones that can be used as a USB device are the Zero range, the A models and possibly the Pi 4. Even so, I don't think any of them can emulate a printer via USB. Over a network it should be easy. Making a Pi Zero appear to be a USB stora...

Just too add that I have an unbranded USB 2.0 to SATA adaptor that is booting fine with a 120GB Palit SATA3 SSD on a PI 3B+. The chipset identifies as "Super Top M6116 SATA Bridge". It's one of those adaptors that has two USB connectors for extra power, but I only use the main one.

That would be interesting as the Raspberry Pi 4B only has 4 cores.
Also it runs Raspbian which is based on Debian 10.0/32 bit.

Re: cannot run a tensorflow docker image on Pi 3 B+

You'll probably find that the tensorflow docker image is for x86 CPUs only. You'd need an armhf image to run on a Pi.

If there is a Dockerfile available you can probably build your own image on the Pi, which should work.

Yes. Raspbian is 32 bits.

But if you are planning to run i386 32 bit software on it, like for a PC, that won't work. The CPU type is wrong. PC is Intel or AMD and Pi is ARM. They use different instruction codes.
