Re: RaspberryPi 4: heatsink or fan

I ordered one and a heatsink, will see whats better when I'm setup

I'm planning to setup a NAS/NextCloud/VPN server with my 4, when I've got everything on I'll see what load I'm getting and make the choice then. I would think the heatskink will suffice to be honest, save the fan for a desktop.

One quirk I noticed on upgrading - it left php7.0 there, as well as installing php7.3. I had to manually set up apache2 to use php7.3 instead of php7.0, then remove all of the php7.0 stuff.
I found that as well, confused me for a while.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

HI, Just a heads up the installer does not work with the new "Buster" images, missing packages.. Edit:- It should be fairly easy to update the dependencies php7.0 needs to be replaced with php7.3 and libav-tools with ffmpeg. However I'm not sure how much of an impact the switch to ffmpeg will make, ...

From memory you can force a FB resolution in /boot/config.txt , I have had to do this when running headless..

I can't help but think the pi2's update slipped through unnoticed and it'll be on 4.19 once rebooted?
Doh !! Just looked at the up time, 30 odd days, rebooted and I'm magically on 4.19 now.

I usually reboot after an update, must have got distracted here though, thanks for the top tip:)

Hi,

Should we be seeing the 4.19 kernel when we do an apt update ?

Two of my Pis are on 4.19 now, a Zero and Pi1B but the Pi2 is still on 4.14 with no sign of an update.

Have I missed something?
