Re: raspbian wheeze

Wheezy has been moved to an archive server as it is no longer updated. The packages are still available though.

Change any of your sources.list files to point to http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/ instead of http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/

What camera do you have that uses the GPIO pins to connect?

The official cameras use the "Camera" connector. You can also use USB cameras.

How to get a pure, clean install without all this extra stuff? It doesn't. Either you have installed the full ...

Re: Dreampiu failed once I updated form Dreampi 1.6 to 1.7

The majority of USB2.0 card readers support SDHC. The ones in the Pound shops do. Internal slots in older computers tend not to support SDHC. I don't know about the slot in your Mac. NOOBS is not a full OS. It is customised to provide a method for installing a real OS like Raspbian, but many of us p...

Re: All ports become very hot on Kali Linux

68°C is not excessively hot for a Pi 3B+, but the CPUs may run slower at that temperature. The temperature limit is 85°C. It is expected that the ports will become warm as they are used as part of the thermal management on the 3B+, excess heat is channelled through the board to the metalwork of the ...

It looks like Doug was right. You're only using IPv6, so pinging an IPv4 address isn't going to work.

The only difference between the versions is the software that is pre-installed. I suppose you could che...

Re: Using GPIO

You're using different GPIO's. The first script is using Broadcom numbers and the second uses Pi numbering. Comment out the setmode command in the first script and they'll use the same GPIO. The second script is using gpiozero. That uses BCM numbering. So both scripts are using the same numbering s...

Possibly whatever editor Windows Explorer is using is converting the files to have Windows line endings (CRLF) instead of Linux line endings (LF). Raspbian won't like the files if they have Windows style line endings. Notepad++ is one editor for Windows that can save a file with Linux line endings. ...

Re: Raspbian stuck at login

The user "pi" does appear in that file if you are using raspbian

Code: Select all

I wouldn't recommend editing that file manually though.

In the old days, the "x" used to be the encrypted password. Now that is held in /etc/shadow

You can boot a single program by putting its name on the kernel command line. The problem with that is you wouldn't have Wifi or Bluetooth, which the OP needs.

If ScriptBasic is installed in its traditional way, scriba is in /usr/local/bin with root privileges. Like Peal, Python, ... scripting engines.
Python and (I assume you mean) Perl etc. are usually installed in /usr/bin and although owned by root, don't have any special privileges.
