Recovery

My RPi won't boot up so I need to recover it. If I do an install of the OS does it delete any saved files?

Re: Raspberry Pi for Primary School Children

At the minute all the files the children have been working on are dotted around the file system of the pi so wanting to upgrade rather than do a fresh install.
In future I need to sort out the storage of saved files so a fresh install is easier.

Re: Raspberry Pi for Primary School Children

Solved my own issue.
Edublocks seems to need chromium browser to work, and Jessie comes with epiphany web browser and an upgrade doesn't change to chromium so once it is installed separately all is fine.

Re: Raspberry Pi for Primary School Children

Hoping for a bit of help installing edublocks. We have around 20 RPis and around half of them were still on Jessie and half on Stretch. I downloaded edublocks using command curl -sSL get.edublocks.org | bash The ones that are already on Stretch work fine, but the older ones still on Jessie do not wo...

Re: Raspberry Pi for Primary School Children

Thanks everyone, EduBlocks is exactly what I was looking for.
It definitely simplifies the python processes and stops them making basic errors.
If only it came installed as standard as I now have to sign in to 20 units and install the software.
Cheers

Re: Raspberry Pi for Primary School Children

I am thinking about ditching python but half of these resources use python.
I'll check out edublocks.
Primary 5 is around 10 years old up to Primary 7 who are around 12 years old.

USB Ports Not Working

I have a number of Raspberry Pi 3 Model B units and on one of them the USB ports have stopped working.
Software is fine as I can test the SD card on another unit, and so are the keyboard and mouse I am trying to use, so it seems to be a hardware issue.
Is there anything that can be done?

I've got the 2DOF arm and I'm wanting to connect it to a piface board. What are these connectors called and what do I need to connect it to the piface. Many...
