Re: other pi-like boards

Well.... One of the virtues of Linux is that, for the vast majority of use cases, so long as the hardware has the required features, it really doesn't matter what hardware you're using. As a result, software support is actually a bigger deal than it otherwise would be because you're really *not* lo...

Re: other pi-like boards

You can't look solely at specs to decide which board is better. I started out with an Odroid C1+ and had plans to turn it into a DVR. You're stuck on a 3.10 kernel.... so many drivers do not exist. I had nfs problems that made it unusable for my purposes and never got a single reply in their forums ...

Re: Welcoming to new members

No one is saying use ASL now. He said people under 30 wouldn't recognize it....precisely because it fell out of use when the dynamics of the internet changed.

Re: Welcoming to new members

On the internet, which was basically your connection to usenet at the time, that was why people signed up, you would generally be required to use your real name by your ISP. I used usenet mainly back in the BBS days. By the time I got online, we gravitated towards EFNet and then Undernet..... where...

Re: Welcoming to new members

Maybe we are harsh in responses to posters sometimes, but if it begrudgingly gets the user to learn to think for themselves and research, then Yay! I doubt it does that. We're far from the Dead Poet's Society here. I'm a case in point of what happens when you don't get help and I bet a lot of other...

Re: Welcoming to new members

When I first signed up I believe I did get notified for every update, and it got very annoying so I found the option to disable it by default. Then again, that may be my memory going. Right...and no one is saying it should be changed where you can't do that. Think about the two options here: 1. On ...

Re: Welcoming to new members

FYI, there's an option in the UCP (click your username to access the UCP, I think the option's in the Preferences>Board Preferences section) that lets you turn that feature on. It just isn't on by default. Admins, It Should Be. (although I'm not sure it's possible) I agree....it should be the defau...

Re: Welcoming to new members

What we have now is such a step backwards that I don't know why people don't complain. It has to be that they just don't know how much better it is to run your own software and decide for yourself if you need an internet connection at that point or not. I remember those days and that is nostalgia t...

Re: Welcoming to new members

I am going to agree with tausciam and say this took me off guard as well. I have used phpBB forums before that did auto subscribe users to threads that they posted in. Not necessarily e-mail notifications but automatically adding them to the user's watched list which is very useful. Yep. It should ...

I'm a new member and didn't realize that, when you post or comment, it doesn't automatically subscribe you to that thread...... They really should do something about that. But, at least with this forum, people actually seem willing to help when you have a question. In other communities, including th...

Re: Issues after shutting down my RPi via SSh using Putty

I don't think it is. The original OS release for the Pi 3B left the green LED on after shutdown, the current release leaves it off. You can check with the command "uname -a". The current version will return: 4.4.13-v7+ #894 SMP Mon Jun 13 13:13:27 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux You can update with: sudo...

Re: CLI Boot errors and slowing down?

If it's a script you run, then you can do scriptname &> output.txt to get all the output in a text file you can read at your leisure.

If it's something running at boot, you can do dmesg | more to read the bootup one page at a time. If you don't find it there, you can do cat /var/log/syslog | more

I posted about it on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/comments/4qpwd9/my_homemade_ota_pi3_based_pvr/ I found the 955q to be really sensitive.
