Re: STICKY: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive

Rather than executing multiple pages of instructions, you might want to give usb-boot a try: Sorry, but this is exactly the wrong attitude. This great tutorial makes people understand what they are doing. That's the reason for the existence of the Raspberry Pi. What you are proposing is: Stay stupi...

Re: Libcurl Library error

You could use the libcurl3 library from Stretch. Copy it to a special directory (e.g. in /usr/local/share/application-name)and start your application from a script which includes this path: LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/share/application-name{LD_LIBRARY_PATH:+:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH}" application-name I've...

Re: Nach Betriebsystem Update kein HDMI Signal mehr

hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080

in config.txt einfügen. Das soll helfen. Evtl. mußt du dann aber die Monitor-Einstellungen selbst vornehmen.

Ausserdem soll auch folgendes helfen:
sudo rpi-update 18ef6736e42023ea4e411d36a60d3eed18fdcccf
Damit wird eine ältere Firmare-Version wiederhergestellt.

Re: GStreamer and omx encoding from live source.. a naive problem

So @GKreidl can endusers expect a new version of rtranscode which is running on Stretch with hardware acceleration? I suppose you mean Buster and not Stretch, as the current version runs on both Jessie and Stretch. Yes, but it will take some time, because I think I'll switch to V4L2 instead of usin...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 temperature

The Flirc case is not a regular case: it's quite expensive and more like a case-sized passive heatsink than a regular case. It also interferes with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and you can't access most of the on-board I/O connectors. We don't need any more marketing for this case: we know it wo...

So, in case the power supply was the issue, I should get myself another one, more powerful? E.g. will this one do? https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01M4I7FMC/ref ... B07NPKXFBD
Buy the official RPi PSU for RPi4B.

Kweb (Minimal Kiosk Browser) can do this without any supporting server (only from local HTML files)
