Re: Trying to mount a network folder on boot. After fstab edit pi locks on reboot.

To test changes to /etc/fstab, unmount (if mounted) the newly added drive an then execute: mount --all This helps to see if there are any errors. However normally if the system can't mount an fstab entry during bootup you will be dumped into a maintenance console so your error message might point to...

Dass einfachste ist um am Raspberry Pi mit hilfe der 'SD Card Copier' (via ‘Accessories’ Menu) ein 1:1 Kopie zu erstellen auf den USB-stick. Wenn du danach von(?) USB bootest kann mit raspi-config ('Advanced Options') die rootfs partition expanded werden.

Re: MDADM damaged?

Did you reboot after the dist-upgrade? If a new kernel is installed it won't be active until after reboot. After that it should look for modules in the 4.19.75+ modules directory.

In my experience, a flash card unexpectedly showing up read-only almost always means a failed card. If there is anything important on the card, copy it right away, if possible. Try reformatting with the SD Association utility from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/index.html Either that, o...

Re: Permanent Arduino usb address on RPi!

Look up 'udev rules'. These allow you to create specific/additional device names (actually softlinks to the actual /dev/ttyUSBx name that the kernel assigns) for (a.o.) USB devices based on for example the serial number of the device. There's a generuc tutorial here: https://linuxconfig.org/tutorial...

Re: No lxd package for lxd

Can't held with your actual 'lxd' issue but you can silence those annoying preload errors using 'sudo nano /etc/ld.so.preload' and putting a '#' at the start of the line it contains. YMMV. Or change ${PLATFORM} to v7l assuming you're on (I think) anything greater or equal to a Pi 2 V1.2 with a 32-b...

Re: No 4K on Logitech Brio after upgrading firmware on Raspberry Pi 4

What upgrade did you perform?

Maybe it's related to the upgrade of the VL805 USB 3.0 controller. Check out this thread. You could try to revert to the previous VL805 firmware (described somewhere in that thread) and if that fixes the issue post that in the thread.

Overall it seems to imply you can run Wine on a Pi but it's not for the faint-hearted.
