Re: Pi4 Red LED status lights

My guess is it's a flaw in the case design and you're seeing a reflection of the power LED through the activity LED (which is green). Note: The actual LEDs are not positioned where you see them so either a fibre tube is being used or some other electronics.

Re: Installing with and without apt-get

I rather suspected that "X86" referred to the 80386, but didn't know for sure, and X64 was probably for the 80486?? Close but no cigar ;) X86 generally refers to 32 bit Intel* compatible processors with a 32 bit OS, X64 refers to 64bit Intel* compatible processors with a 64bit OS. The 486 (whether ...

Re: Why is datasheet missing?

Despite the number of sales the RPF is actually quite a small group of people and obviously oversights slip through the cracks.

Now that the issue has been brought to their attention (albeit incorrectly via this forum) I'm sure it will be resolved soon.

If you don't comply with a standard, your device is not according to the standard and you could be liable for damages caused by your product. Hmm, I've yet to read any reports about any damage caused by this very minor issue. In fact I strongly suspect if any damage happens then that would imply th...

Re: Temperature warning / thermometer icon Pi 4B

The Flirc does the job and as it's passive, completely silent. Two drawbacks though... 1) As with most other cases you have cables flying out all over the place. 2) Access to the GPIO's (though not impossible) can be difficult using standard connectors. My personal preference cancels out those (my p...

Thanks Guys,

That was my thoughts hence my request for information.

@OP you bought Model B's not 3B's and as stated it does not have WiFi.

Depending on the description you may have a claim for a refund but caveat emptor when purchasing on the internet.

Re: Pi 4 Wasn't Booting. Here is my fix.

I'm sure the RPF would like to know where you purchased your pi if there was no pointer in the (albeit limited documentation) that came with it directing you to a basic setup guide.

Yeah, I smell something too and like you it ain't coming from my shoes.

You found this forum, how you could miss the documentation site on the way is a mystery to me :?

FWIW, your setup would've worked fine with a 3B+ out of the box or a 3B with a minor adjustment and hopefully in a few month with the 4B models.

Don't sweat it, in 10 years or so I'll be adamant that I had a 3b+ and a 4B4g with all the ports at the rear and uSD access at the front.

And I do but the cases they're in aren't produced by the RPT/RPF.

Re: I need c and c ++ code to run a Raspberry Pi load cell.

By load cell I'm assuming you mean a thread or core.

In any case the Pi is no different from any other systems capable of compiling and executing resulting code. Ergo your question is not Pi related. I'd suggest looking for a forum which deals with the compiler you are using.
