Re: config.txt gpio commands

Some of the GPIO numbers seem to be invalid. Are you sure you're using the correct number scheme (BCM)

Why don't you start with telling us what hard / software you have.

Re: How does raspbian buster check for date and time without NTP

Since Stretch Debian/Raspbian uses systemd-timesyncd instead of ntp.
It consists of a service file and an executable.

Re: Kernel updating and Stretch being bumped to 4.19.57

How should the kernel be updated on Raspbian? Raspberry Pi docs say to use rpi-update, https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/linux/kernel/updating.md No, it doesn't. It says If you use the standard Raspbian update/upgrade process (found here), this will automatically update the kernel to the la...

Re: CIFS mount not working on Buster

Any suggestions?
reboot your Pi.

Notice that you're still running 4.19.50 but the 'find' sees the files in 4.19.57
I think new kernel was installed in the last update/upgrade and you did not boot your Pi after that.

Re: Desktop preferences not saving changes on RPi4 with Buster

Does your SD card retain *any* changes?
Create e.g. a new text file in your home directory, then reboot.
Is the file still there with the same contents?

Well, that's not very informative...
You could try to start the program manually (on the command line) and see what the output is.
Or maybe it creates a log file?

Re: When does Amazon recieve the new Raspberry Pi's?

So all Pi stuff will be third party. Most of it, yes. But they also sell Pi themselves: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07BDR5PDW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1 Dispatched from and sold by Amazon. I assume they just buy from Element14 as other (non-official) resellers would do.

Re: Can't access package outside virtual environment from inside of virtual environment

Which virtual environment software do you use?

I use virtualenv and it has the option to use globally installed modules.
Can't remember the exact option though.

I wouldn't be surprised if other packages offer the same functionality

Buster was just released it went from "testing" to "stabe".
I think you just need to do an "apt upgrade" and answer yes to change the release type.
