Re: HOWTO: Install debian armhf on Pi 2/3

But who needs Debian armhf, when you can run Debian ARM64 on the Pi 3? I had to compile the Pi's kernel for 64-bit, use debootstrap to install a minimal Debian ARM64 base, edit the /etc/fstab file to point to the correct locations, and install the kernel modules. After that, Debian ARM64 booted succ...

Re: Pi3A+ NOOBS no wifi

If you're using the full NOOBS, you already get the latest version of Raspbian as of the NOOBS version release date. If you're using NOOBS Lite, you'll need an internet connection to install any OS.

Re: B, with Stretch, lost network (eth)

Hi.

Please check that the Pi's Ethernet port is flashing green light. If it's not, it could be an issue with your Ethernet cable. Try swapping the Ethernet cable with another one.

Also, when Raspbian boots, does it detect the Ethernet cable during startup?

Hi.

Have you tried checking your internet connection? Try pinging google.com with the following command:

Code: Select all

ping google.com
Try running sudo apt update if you are able to ping google.com successfully. This updates the package lists on your system to the latest version.

Hello.

Once you have booted from the GRUB prompt, please open a terminal window and run:

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
Once the GRUB update has finished, try rebooting your PC. Does this fix the issue, or do you encounter the same problem even after updating the GRUB bootloader?

The problem is almost certainly in Debian Buster, not the TV. If it works with the current stable Raspbian Stretch, then the problem is definitely Buster.

Re: Mac OS 9 On Raspberry Pi?

You cannot run a PowerPC OS on Raspberry Pi natively, but can use qemu-system-ppc. Since Mac OS 9 is so old, it should run at about the same speed as Windows 95 running in QEMU. Overall speed depends on your Pi model.
