Re: Default Raspbian Strecht Lite free space

The uncompressed lite img is 1.8GB. Anything between that and the size of your SD card is roughly the free space. As has been said, the image is resized automatically on first boot. Linux has tools included to do this manually (loopback mount, parted, resize2fs), but they are not simple the first ti...

Re: WiFi repeater failing

You need to include the '-t nat' with '-S' as well, to see the rules associated with that table. The guide you mention includes enabling IP forwarding, but you don't mention it. Is it enabled (steps 19-21)? BTW, my Comitup package will do all of this for you. Version 0.9 or newer can essentially wor...

Re: Packaging an application and updating the system

Regarding deb packaging - If you have a working setup.py, the process is fairly straightforward. If your dependencies are packaged cleanly, conflicts would not be expected.

Re: Extremely slow SD Card Copy Copier

If you are using Lite, note that 8GB is 5.7x larger than the uncompressed Lite downloaded image, and that the OS image expands to fill the device on first boot.

20 minutes * 5.7 ~= 2 hours

This doesn't directly address your question, but you would have an easier time of managing wifi with Comitup.

I upgraded my PI3 to Stretch today, starting with essentially Raspbian Jessie + NetworkManager. An upgrade + dist-upgrade touched over a thousand packages, over a number of hours. I also ran rpi-update. The updated system does not see the internal Wifi device, but appears to be working otherwise. dm...

Oddly, IIRC, it actually does, if you feed it a complete URL, with "http://".

That may be desktop Chrome, however, I'm not sure.

debmirror will do the job. How much disk space is needed with debmirror? Does it download everything or does it just maintain the very latest packages?

Re: connecting over SSH = Permission denied (publickey).

IIRC, I had a similar problem, caused by zero length keys in /etc/ssh. If that's your problem, perhaps delete the keys and restart the service?

The systemd way to work the service is "systemctl {start|stop|restart|status} ssh".

If I understand this right, you are configuring the long range adapter as an AP?

If so, check to see if the mode is supported. Does 'sudo iw list' show 'AP' in the list of 'Supported Interface Nodes'. You'll see that the internal Wifi has that entry.
