The chances are good that Linux 5.5 will gain GENET support (Ethernet) for RPi4. PCIe is PCI express and a requirement for USB XHCI.
I'll let you know, my main rig is Arch testing, currently at 5.4.3, so getting close to 5.5

Luckily there is way to run some apps, the package is called wine and its some kind of emulator under linux kernel.
I'm going to invoke pedantry mode, but WINE is literally an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator"

Re: TVHeadend won't record onto attached SSD Drive.

Using mounting via fstab, try:

Code: Select all

sudo chown pi /mnt/mountpoint
replace /mnt/mountpoint with your actual mount directory.

Then remount

Code: Select all

Re: /etc/fstab nfs won't mount at boot

Do you have "nofail", which should avoid issues with a slow network coming up, and mount when the network is ready?

Worst case scenario if it boots OK but fails to mount, is

Double check your cmdline.txt and make sure that it's pointing to the correct place on the drive. Also try removing the / mount (comment it out) from /etc/fstab.

Try:

You can add rw and sync if required after you confirm it working

You could do that with a straight forward bash script. What is your end goal?

Unless this is part of a much larger project, bash may be enough.

The boot is a little unusual, since the 3B+ boots from an NFS drive attached to a 4B. Booting is fine, and the OS runs well. Ther...

You need to edit /etc/fstab to match the new location as well.
For clarity, that's /etc/fstab on the NEW root partition. But you can simply comment out the / mount in the new fstab.

Re: How to control several Raspberry pi s from faraway ( From UK to India)

If you can get port forwarding set up in India - use a different port than 22 on each Pi (and a different port for each) then have that ssh port forwarded to the respective Pis.

Then when you log in, you specify the correct port and it will connect to the correct Pi.
