Re: Any CAD programs for Pi for 3D printing

you could use openscad or blender 2.79b (not exactly a CAD program but can be used like one in many cases),... both are in the raspbian repository.

(unfortunately freecad always crashes on a raspberry pi.)

Re: Future of raspberry pi - software related

Read only file systems can be selected using Raspi configuration utility - see Performance tab. Overlay filesystem is a read only SD filesystem, but with a ramfs overlay over the top - so you can make changes in the ram disk, but they are never stored to SD card. This can turned on or off at any ti...

Re: Is there a way to 'snap' things to the left and right of raspbian desktop?

yes, it would be nice if this could be added to the raspbian desktop.

a while ago i came across a tutorial about how this can be set up with lxde but back then i didn't test it and now i don't find it anymore.

Re: can raspbian also be installed like a normal distribution?

thanks!
hm... i haven't thought of that.
i would have liked to get rid of the sdcard but after thinking a bit about it... actually it doesn't really matter that much. :)

edit: probably later (once usb booting is supported) the boot partition also could be set up on the ssd manually somehow?

once the raspberry pi 4 gets the usb booting feature finished, i would like to use it with a spare 500gb ssd i have lying around. this ssd has multiple ext4 partitions and i would like to install raspbian to the first one without deleting the others. is this possible somehow?

I think that if you want publicly facing servers that are running all that junk and you are worried about the safety of your local LAN then you should not have the servers on your local LAN.

I would disagree! Who needs to cameras would be my question to you!

Re: Adding second camera to Rpi 3?

the rpi3 (and even rpi4) only supports one pi camera module. the compute module (+ compute module io board) supports two pi camera modules... so you would have to use an usb camera as a second camera or use the compute module. edit: i would prefer if the normal raspberry pi 4 had 2 CSI connectors an...

Functionally, eMMC is identical to SD cards (same bus protocol) it's just soldered to board, instead of being in a slot.
how is soldering on flash memory a good idea? sounds horrible to me if you have to throw away your computer just because the flash chip had too many rewrites. :(
