Raspberry Pi 3+ 55 degree idle

I left my Pi 3B+ to idle for about 15 minutes and when I came back it was at 55 degrees.
The only background tasks that might use CPU were pt-device-manager and LXPanel.
My Pi was booted to GUI.

The load averages were 0.19, 0.22, 2.32

Is 55 degrees normal for and idle temperature on the 3B+?

Re: Disable HDMI Audio & Force 1/8" Jack Audio?

Write "sudo amixer -c n cset numid=3 x" where n is the number your sound card has as seen in alsamixer, and x the desired output (0 for auto, 1 for jack and 2 for HDMI). Worked for me. Worked for me too. I realise I'm resurrecting an old thread but I wanted to thank you for your advice. I have trie...

Re: Do installed programs get written to the uSD card?

Greetings All, I am a true newbie as it applies to Pi and Raspbian, but have some understanding of systems and software due to having worked in tech since the early '70s. My question is: if I install a program on my Rpi 3B+ using a USB thumb drive, will the executable code be written/appended to th...

Re: Pi 3B+ Overclocking

I use the following:

Code: Select all

arm_freq=1525
core_freq=550
gpu_freq=720
h264_freq=700
sdram_freq=575
over_voltage=2
temp_soft_limit=70
Note that temp_soft_limit will change the time from where it throttles down to 1200mHZ from 1525mHZ to 70 degrees Celsius. The default throttle temp is 60 degrees.

Re: Slow web browser

I would be interested to learn what is different between a terminal command and run command . The run button is to run a single line of code without a terminal window (so it would be unsuitable for command-line apps). Running from the terminal would get command line output too. For example, sudo ra...

Re: Slow web browser

As others have said, the original Pi isn't really suitable for web browsing.
If you want to try doing it, open the "Run" menu from the menu, and type 'epiphany' in. Epiphany works better on the original Pi than Chromium.

Note: Epiphany is extremely slow on newer Pis

I have a camera I'm trying to access via USB. When I plug it in, nothing happens. I've been able to access it before - when I plugged it in, it would say "Removable medium inserted, type: camera" and I could access it. I can still access the camera via my Windows computer.

Re: Pi Zero W Does not connect to Wifi

Since it seems to not connect at boot, you can enable "Wait for network at boot" in raspi-config or from the config GUI. But make sure you can connect before you do it (like boot it up, when it logs in assuming it has no network plug in your mouse / keyboard and try to connect from the menu). If it ...

Yes you can do that. But RiscOs is another odd one and needs to be installed at the start with WioIoT. It cannot be installed into a ProjectSpace. Ok.

Re: Install OS without overwrite in PINN

The projectSpaces supplied with PINN are for typical OSes that use 2 partitions: 1 FAT32 for boot, and 1 EXT43 for the rootfs. WinIoT does not match this partition layout so it cannot be installed into the supplied projectspaces. However, there is nothing to stop you from creating your own type of ...

Yes you could just start again. Bear in mind that because Windows uses its own installer, the progress bar will not advance properly as it installs. You could always create your own projectSpace for WinIoT to defer installation to another time. Compare the ProjectSpace metafiles with those of Raspb...

BTW, pressing PgDown crashes PINN.
