Re: PIVPN on Stretch with Android OpenVPN Connect

Hi, It's not something silly like an incorrectly typed pass phrase is it ? Did you generate new users for OVPN ? Copying the files from your old installation wont work, you have to start again. I'm running the same as you and have no issues.. OpenVPN 2.4.0 arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf [SSL (OpenSSL)]...

Re: Unable to Boot RPI 3B from SSD disk

Hi, Is your pi failing to reboot or cold boot ? My own experience here is that the type of SATA --> USB controller will dictate whether reboot works or not, nothing on the OS side will help if it does not work, one thing you may want to try if you have one if attach a USB hub and connect the drive t...

Hi, You can use apt version pinning to get packages from the later releases, you need to be careful though as it can cause mayhem, for this though it would be OK... Me.

Re: Kodi crashes on start (logfile)

Hi,

Is this installed from the repository?

Kodi needs lots of gfx memory, 192mb from memory, and you are forced to use the legacy OpenGL driver, the new drivers will cause issues....

My advice would be to stear clear and use one of the distros for Kodi.
