I find using "replace" more finicky than "delete" + "add". Is it an option?
Thanks! I'll give that a try!

Here's an update, if anyone cares. the Snort package in Raspbian Buster is 10 YEARS OLD. Snort.org doesn't support it, there are no rule sets to download. So it's basically worthless. The only alternative is to down the source and compile it on the Pi. But... Then it finally hit me, this won't work ...

Pi4B - Power light stays on after shutdown

One of the niceties of the Pi Zero is that when you shut it down, sudo shutdown -h now , it turns all the lights off when its powered down completely: the Red Power light goes out as well. So you KNOW that its really off. No other Pi models do that, including the new Pi4B. Just wish it did. Maybe it...

Looking to install multiple OSs on the HD and be able to boot into whichever one I wish at Power On.
BerryBoot looks very nice, but its not yet ready for the 4B.
Anyone know of other solutions that work with the 4B?

FYI: raspi-config not used in GUI

I set my RPI4 up via SSH and raspi-config: New Pi Password, Wifi connection, Localizations, etc.
When I booted into the GUI for the first time, it asked for all that info again.
Just an FYI as I don't think that should have happened.

Well, like I said already, I don't want to add a USB hub because of cost and space (bulk), so I asked if just replacing the single USB connector with a dual one would work.
