Re: Slow upload on new Raspberry Pi 4 2GB

Indeed, I've rather neglected PiBakery recently, and not even got a chance to test it on Pi4/Buster. I'm hoping to continue the development soon though, and hopefully get some more people on board so that the development progress doesn't have me as the bottleneck (if you're interested, have a look a...

Re: Set hostname from the /boot partition ?

Thanks. I'd been wondering for some time now how "PiBakery" works. But how did you get the underlying OS (presumably Raspbian) to execute those files? Did it require a meeting of the minds between yourself and the Raspbian maintainers? Sorry for not replying to this earlier - my email alert script ...

Re: SD card boot config question

Currently, the "Pi Baker" system (which runs, I believe, only on Macs) does something like this. As I understand it, Pi Baker involves modifying the image so that a script on the FAT partition (the only one normally accessible by Mac or Windows) will be run on first boot of the Pi. I've never used ...

Re: Wifi not working on Pi Zero W

Interesting, so just to clarify it was adding the two lines

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
that made it work?

If that's the case I'll add it to the next update of PiBakery.

Re: Pi board ideas please

This is exactly what I did at my school, as we didn't have any monitors at all. It worked really well, provided you were able to identify the IP address of each Pi without powering it on. As ghp has said, the best solution for this is to register the MAC addresses of the Pis in the router, and that ...

Re: PiBakery

I'm afraid I'm going to have to disappoint you all and say that PiBakery uses #4 (I pre-patch the image and PiBakery uses this instead of a vanilla Raspbian image). You can have a look at davidferguson/pibakery-raspbian to see what files I add/modify to standard Raspbian. It would be really nice to ...

Re: Set hostname from the /boot partition ?

The firstBoot.sh script is actually exactly what PiBakery does under the hood - the interface just generates the scripts and sticks them in the /boot/PiBakery/firstBoot.sh and /boot/PiBakery/everyBoot.sh files.

Re: Suggestion: Pi (w/ Wireless) should startup with an AP

I believe you're all looking for something like Comitup . It does most of what you're asking for - with the exception that it doesn't use a portal system, so you have to enter the IP/hostname once connected to get to the WiFi config interface. I saw this posted on the Raspberry Pi reddit a few days ...

Re: Suggestion: Pi (w/ Wireless) should startup with an AP

As a few people have mentioned, PiBakery is perfect for this (the difficulty of setting up WiFi headless was actually the inspiration for PiBakery ). You'll be able to simply set the WiFi SSID and password, write the SD card, and then the Pi will connect to that network immediately. And if you want ...

Re: Trouble with pibakery

You can also insert the SD card back into a computer running PiBakery and you'll be able to edit the scripts that way as well. For a detailed guide on this see the Editing an SD Card page on the PiBakery website.

Re: The worst beginner experience... Help

But therebis something weird in the SD card slot. The thing is when you insert de SD, you know that sounds a "click" and de SD is locked. Well, after that click the SD remains inside, but is not locket, easily I could take it out from the socket without the second "click". (But It stay at the corre...

The linux portion isn't completely baked yet, but hopefully will be released soon. https://github.com/davidferguson/pibakery/issues/2 Yes, Linux support is coming hopefully very soon - and if you build from source (instructions for that in the README on GitHub) it actually might work on Linux alrea...
