Re: Buster OS Bugs

The second is the PI4 Hardware is broken by design, its annouced to work at 1.5GHZ. This doesnt work without cooler/fan or metal casing. In the best case the gpu/cpu trottle down to protect from getting brocken, that means it doesnt run at 1.5GHZ. This simply isn't true. The Pi4 with current firmwa...

Re: How to singulair a PI in ethernet?

If everything is configured on the DHCP server (your router usually) you shouldn't need to specify anything at all to the DHCP client. By default it should get a dynamic IP assignment from the first DHCP server it hears back from on the network.

Yes ds4drv does remapping, I've used it on an x86 PC but never on the Pi. Works over bluetooth and USB.

Re: Learn: Linux,Debian , Raspbian for command line?

I think learning some Linux basics is an excellent place to start. What you'll learn there is entirely applicable to the Pi/Raspbian combo, the few oddities concerning Debian/Raspbian are easily adapted if you have those basics down. Just learning the conventions of Unix/Linux will go a long way, th...

It's recommended to use

Re: driver for a device that does not have a driver loaded automatically

Does it show up under lsusb? I've never come across a USB-Serial device that didn't work out of the box with Linux. I think there are a fairly small number of chips out there to do this job, your device probably uses one of them.

Re: Setting up a Raspberry PI 3 model B with a NTSC CRT TV

You don't need to convert from HDMI, the Pi supports composite output through it's 3.5mm jack

You just need an appropriate AV cable, there's a good chance you already have one lying around.

Re: Using a Pi in remote location

If you run a DHCP server on the Mac, plug an ethernet cable into the Mac and the other end into the Pi, the Pi will grab an IP address automatically from the Mac and establish a network connection between the 2. You can enable SSH on the Pi simply by putting a file named ssh in the boot partition of...

Re: Could my pi be defective?

That could be the issue, there's a limit of 1.2A for all attached USB devices, and AFAIK exceeding this won't cause the red light to blink or go out, but will cause the USB controller to reset itself and all the devices attached.

You should be using 'sudo apt full-upgrade'

They work a little differently. You could have missing packages.
