Re: PI 4 Compute module with pci-e?

Just so people don't keep writing stuff that will have no impact, I think I can say that a future CM4 form factor and connection system is already decided on. Cannot tell you any more than that, but suggestions made now are unlikely to be acted upon. That's great to hear that a CM4 may be possible....

Re: Switch Pi lite!

Airflow - cool it all you want, without adequate ventilation and non restricted passages for air, it won't be much use. That was the idea for that grip, do drill some small holes behind the fans to allow for exhaust while the top which is normally used for exhaust would allow for natural air intake...

Re: Switch Pi lite!

I’ve seen that before along with others. I was thinking of removing one fan, which would allow for additional space for the USB ports. Or if needed, remove the USB and Ethernet ports. I could always still use the solder point and relocate the USB elsewhere if needed. That’s why I ordered that grip s...

Switch Pi lite!

Let's embark on an adventure, shall we? The Raspberry Pi is a great SBC with tons of capabilities. Now that the Pi 4 has been released and Nintendo Switch lite housing shells are available, I'm going to start on a process of merging the two into a cool portable Pi powerhouse. And speaking of keeping...

HyperPixel 4.0 + LibreELEC = blank screen after touch

I have been living in and working in another country for nearly 5 years. The car I have is from a rental agency. Sadly it has AM/FM/audio CD/MiniDISC. No Aux input :'(. It holds a double DIN and only uses 1, so I bought a $25 USD Chinese radio to use as a basis for my CarPi. I want to use LibreELEC,...

Re: Can the pi 4 boot off exfat?

If you're looking for bootable exFAT for moving files easily from a Windows OS to the Pi, I would suggest just making an additional partition and format that as exFAT. That's what I did with one of my RetroPie systems. 1 partition BOOT (FAT32), 1 partition OS (ext3fs) , 1 partion DATA (exFAT).

Re: Keyboard and mouse from smartphone

Why not just use RDP from the phone to the computer? If you have a gmail account and use Google Chrome, it's really easy using ChromeRDP. There's even a client for iOS and android. That's what I use to control one of my PC's half way around the world.

Re: Pi0w g_mass_storage with partition not file.

A word of warning : the only safe way to have access from both sides at the same time is read only on both. Read/write on both sides will lead to filesystem corruption on the shared partition/file. Both sides expect exclusive access, both sides use caching. Neither side can notify the other that ch...

Pi0w g_mass_storage with partition not file.

I've seen instructions on how to enable g_mass_storage on the Pi0. However that requires creating a filesystem inside a file. I was wondering if there is a way to point the g_mass_storage to a partition that already exists on an SD card. My SD card partition is (BOOT (FAT16), System (EXT3), Data(exF...

First, I haven't seen any other those machines. Of course I'm not looking for them either.

Second, I am keeping the thrread related. I bought the SmartiPi touch and am using it in my rental car as a carputer. It fits in the car real nice. It's perfect for uses like that.

You can use as many or few buttons as you need to wire. I was just stating that that is what the default configuration for a USB gamepad is in the teensy. The buttons will only register when you press them. If they they are not connected, they simply won't show as being pressed.
