Re: Raspbian systemd-timesyncd saving system time instead of using fake-hwclock

Since we don't use initramfs, systemd just doesn't work properly in this regard. They said it would be too tricky to fix.

If you mean what tag matches the kernel included in any particular image, here's one way: $ curl -s http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite/images/raspbian_lite-2020-02-14/2020-02-13-raspbian-buster-lite.info | awk '/raspberrypi-kernel/ {print "raspberrpi_kernel-"$3}' raspberrpi_kernel-1.2020...

Re: Raspberry PI 4 - USB Boot

Nobody has ever been banned for asking for a feature.

Usually people get banned when they take it past the point of asking and into the territory of harassment.

However, asking won't accomplish anything when the feature is already being worked on. It certainly won't make it happen any faster.

You're probably pulling in pulseaudio, which doesn't work well on the pi.

I don't think the screen configuration tool works with the legacy stack, so I'm not sure how you're finding it useful in that case.

Re: Screen Configuration tool is gone...

I'd start with bellsoft, but wouldn't expect a reply. Mesa seems partially responsible here, but since you don't get sensible output in any case, I think the root of the problem is in openjfx.

Re: newer software request

Raspbian follows Debian. Debian freezes software versions for a 'stable' release. It doesn't look like the package has been getting a lot of attention in Debian. Even their unstable release is quite old. Either the maintainer doesn't have a lot of time or there's an issue preventing newer versions f...

Re: Screen Configuration tool is gone...

Any idea if there's different behaviour with the normal repo version of javafx with and without FKMS enabled? Since that would indicate it may be a Mesa driver issue I could pass on to the devs.

I believe the tool you're talking about is arandr. If installed, it should show up in Preferences, as 'Screen Configuration'.

Re: Raspbian - NTP servers passed by DHCP ignored

Our DHCP server doesn't provide the NTP option, so it's a little tricky to figure out exactly what's going on in your case. Some ideas for you to try: the -U and -T options of dhcpcd and adding debug messages into the ntp hook and seeing how it ends up setting the time in your case. You should be ab...

Do you have NTP installed?

Not sure. AFAIK, the only changes that affect openbox would've been colour and font settings in the 'System' tab of 'Appearance Settings'. If you ran obconf at some point, it is also likely to have done this. Or, if it's an old install, you may have the file from the previous method we had for manag...

Re: Ctrl-Alt-Del confusion

If you haven't modified any openbox settings before, it will use the global file, provided by the package, which will have the change. If you have made modifications, they're stored in your home directory and are not over-written by the package. That's why you get a message box telling you that you ...

It's a bug within chromium.

The message should not be there unless it's an official chrome build. It's fixed in a later version, so the next release of chromium shouldn't have it.

All packages in archive.raspberrypi.org are 'testing'.

Since most people have no idea what that means, it's just a confusing message. Worse, apt-get d...
