Re: STICKY: Howto: Disable Screen Saver In Raspbian

And this thread is a perfect example to prove my theory:
The only reason linux hasn't won the desktop IS linux.

Why does linux break the one single reason to have a computer: to make life *easier*??

Re: ZeroW wlan0 issues

DHCP, but I use quasi-static. I make DHCP reservations for all IPs (for the most part) I seriously doubt its prob with my LAN : Cisco 2851 router, couple Cisco catalyst switches, Ubiquiti AP, and DHCP served via Synology NAS. The main wifi is wpa-2 enterprise/radius, with the IoT junk on wpa2-psk. (...

Re: ZeroW wlan0 issues

How are you powering the RPiZW? or, to rephrase the question from where is the RPiZW getting it's 5v power from? next question: is your RPiZW in a metallic case? any case? no case (bare naked)? Can't buy it doesn't have enough power argument since the USB WiFi adapter works flawlessly (aka: even mo...

Does your raspberry pi receive enough power?

ZeroW wlan0 issues

I'm having a nasty issue with the built in wlan. When I ssh in (all my pis are headless) It connects, then hangs, then fixes itself, then eventually just fails and drops the connection. Wired via usb-Eth works great. WiFi via a RT5370 works great. Tried the pi-update, country is correct, power save ...

Secondary disply (AV/Composite)

I have a few of the El Cheapo back up camera displays and wondering if there are any HATs/PHATs that would allow me to display other *secondary* info via composite AV; NOT mirror the HDMI. My use case is data/graphs. Won't need fast refresh. (Yes, I know all about the built in composite port/pins, b...

cloning images

I figured this is more a noob Q But I have a small army of Pis, and once I get a Pi the way I like it, I typically just dd it back to an image file on my Mac. Problem is they are *huge* Full 16/32GB of the SD card. So my overall Q is: Can I just copy/rsync the rootfs partition? ie: dd the original (...
