Re: Buster bug report thread

Just wondering if this is a bug or not... Flashed Raspbian-Lite to a SDCARD, updated everything. disabled swap, rebooted. Went into raspi-configs advance settings (number 7) and then enabled the first option for opengl driver, it says it's disabled. Rebooted, Kodi stops working so the opengl driver ...

Re: Can’t install Ubuntu on RPI 4

Anyway, the sole reason of my attempts to install Ubuntu on RPI4 are to run Steam and GOG Galaxy clients. Can you recommend any other available OS capable of doing that? Steam will not run on Raspberry Pi, the Linux client is for x86/x64 not ARM. I would assume the GOG client is the same but I can'...

Re: Can’t install Ubuntu on RPI 4

We don't need the "fix" for 4gb RAM now. the fix has been implanted into the updates. I started from scratch, Ubuntu 19.10 - went ahead and loaded into SSH on my Android phone (you can get your IP from your router) and login, you'll be asked to enter the default password which is "ubuntu" *username*...

Re: What was your first computer?

A computer I properly used was a laptop for my 18th birthday with 256mb ram and running XP.
My first SBC was a Pi 2.

I'm not that old but I'm not that young.

Re: Best Raspberry Pi Alternatives 2019

None.
There's other SBC's like ODROID or PINE64 but their software/support can't match that of the RaspberryPi.

Thanks for this! Saved me a lot of time looking on Google.
Running very nice off my USB3 to SATA cable and /root on a SSD.

I have another SSD that's got better read/write speeds so I'll be doing this again shortly; when I can be bothered! :D :P

Nothing as good as Etcher.
If you're on a Linux distro, use DD.
If you're on a Windows system, used Win32DiskImager. :D
