Re: Raspberry Pi 4 usb boot?

I can say with no doubt, /boot on MicroSD and handover to /root on USB works just fine. Not a complete USB boot, but as close as damn it.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

To all those asking if it will fit in a 3B case, yet it will with, as has been mentioned, the side removed and some minor modification.

Should you do it? Not without a cooling solution. Honestly, I was hitting 80C+ in a modified case compared with 63C open to the air.

Just saying.

Keep in mind the Pi 4 can't boot from USB *yet*.
It depends on your definition of "boot". You can have /boot on a MicroSD and handover /root to an external drive, as has always been possible.

The current NFS Pi boots from an SSD, and the others from directories on that NFS. However, swapping the drive to the Pi4 han...

Re: How would I only boot into one program and not a full blown OS

The xserver is what provides for a graphical interface, and gives you the desktop. You can't have one without the other.

However, you can have a minimal xserver which will load a single graphical program.

If you have one Pi physically connected to the speakers, you can use pulseaudio to have all Pis output to those speakers, connecting to the pulseaudio server on the physically connected Pi.
