Re: 3B+ booting from USB

What sort of speeds have you been getting from your SSD vs SD Card?

My last test (using DD) of my A1 Sandisk SD was around 19 MB/s write and 23 MB/s read.

It's not the speed that I'm training to attain by going SSD (it's still limited by being USB3) it's the robustness.

Re: 3B+ booting from USB

It's definitely not the distro where the SSD is concerned. I flashed a fresh download of Raspbian Stretch desktop. For some unknown reason, I guess the pi just doesn't like the drive. Though when I'm running from the SD card slot, it will happy detect and mount the drive. A fresh stretch image on an...

3B+ booting from USB

As I understand it, to boot from usb on the 3B+ you simply create an image on your usb media, plug it into the Pi, then turn on the Pi. Unfortunately this isn't work for me. If for example, I take my SD card out and put it into a usb adapter, and try to boot from it, I first get the rainbow screen, ...

Re: Pi 3B+ won't connect to AC only network

Both are set to UK. The Pi won't even see the network unless I set my router country too, so I know that is ok. And in any case, it will connect to the router's 2.4ghz network, and will connect to the 5ghz network but only when I allow the N band. Not when I have it set as AC only.

Pi 3B+ won't connect to AC only network

It seems that my Raspberry Pi3B+ will only connect to my 5ghz wifi network when the router is set to allow bands A/N/AC When I set it to AC only, the Pi can see the network, but will not connect to it. As far as I'm aware the wifi module in pi is AC compatible. Is there a setting or config file I ne...

hi there! I am facing the same problem now.. did you solve it by any chance? Unfortunately no.

Re: BU-353 USB GPS Receiver doesn't show anything

Old thread, but I'm curious if you ever got this to work?

Mine is exactly the same. It has nothing to do with position of the gps as I can plug it into my macbook and get a fix no problem. It seems there is some issue with the unit communicating to the Pi.

Seems there isn't a nice easy to way to have the Pi automount usb drives in Raspbian, so I've had to take to adding them via the fstab.

Re: Yet another "Wifi country is not set" problem

Desktop. It actually worked perfectly fine when I had a headless setup.

Worse case is I do a reinstall, but I've since setup netatalk etc.. and would rather not have to do it over.

I can cope with a wired connection for now until I (well someone smarter than me) can figure it out.

Re: Auto-mounting multiple drives

Well so far I've found pmount, but not any guides showing to use it to auto mount any supported file system, and use the partition label as the mount point name. I don't understand why there is nothing around considering the desktop version does this automatically, the knowledge must be out there.

In most desktop linux flavours now usb drives will auto mount when inserted, just like they do in macOS and windows. Can this be done in Raspian?
