As of 2020, the only thing that works for me is: sudo ifdown --force wlan0 sudo ifup wlan0 Tested it in the following way: Edit network ssid and psk in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf Followed by sudo ifdown --force wlan0 Followed by sudo ifup wlan0 The tests were carried out on Buster-lite. It has been tested atleast 5 to 7 times with time ...

OpenWrt is a OS/tools that you can write on the SD-Card and run on your raspberry pi. In this link, you can find the image file and some explanation. It's easy to configure the OpenWrt. All you need is configure the eth0 or br0 (by default) as the WAN port and connect your modem port (internet) then share it by wlan0. It can be your simple firewall ...

As far as I know specificaton of netboot is to use the tftp (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) in general to get the boot image from what server ever. Usually you install a tftp server for it but it may be possible that a server application encapsulated this protocol and you don't have to install a tftp server. An example of such a program is dnsmasq. But ...

I ran into this problem recently, and it turns out the issue was that I was only sudo-ing one of the chained commands I was using. I was using sudo apt-get update && apt-get install -y libssl-dev libffi-dev python3-dev build-essential But I should have been using sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y libssl-dev libffi-dev python3-...

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Andy Johnson and his Single/Dual link DVI-D suggestion. My PI4 would never connect to a Sony SDM monitor despite all config files changes I could find on forums. After ordering a new HDMI/DVI cable SINGLE LINK, it worked immediately like a charm.

O help, just found out here what went wrong. I've been having trouble with this too. The answer was inside this command: sudo wpa_supplicant -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0 -d I had placed the ssid and psk names between ' 'signs like ssid='my-network-ssid' Changing it to "my-network-ssid" made it work right away. And besides: raspi-...

Just some general information first to understand the different setups. In the first setup you have an access point on the RasPi with interface wlan0 that can other devices connect by WiFi. The wired interface eth0 is connected as uplink to the internet router, no matter if it also has an access point. That isn't used in this case. The RasPi is an access ...

budgie-desktop is available from the default Raspbian repository. This means it should be installable without worrying about dependencies about other needed packages. This is why we use the package manager environment (apt, apt-get, dpkg etc.). If you look at the description of the package you will find: rpi ~$ apt show budgie-desktop --- snip --- This ...

You are using Raspbian. It does not support NetworkManager. At a first glance at the log it seems that default dhcpcd networking is fighting against NetworkManager. Maybe the Home Assistant installation isn't compatible with Raspbian and break its networking. Disable NetworkManager and look if it fix the problem.

One idea is to handle transitions on the server. Give your clients a single endless video stream to play, and push data from different files in that stream. That's how info-beamer seems to work. I think VLC should be able to push a complete playlist to an HTTP stream as well, but I haven't tried it myself. Of course, streaming only works while you're online....

Kernel logs (dmesg) are a good place to start if you suspect a hardware problem. For WiFi connectivity issues, running wpa_supplicant manually with -d and -f options is quite helpful too. There are tons of scripts already written (example) which periodically check for network status and force a reconnection if an anomaly is detected. Looking at the log you ...

(3) Issues: 1. DHCP: Use Static IP:MAC Address Mapping If your Pi is not maintaining a persistent IP address, you can create a static IP:MAC address mapping on the DHCP Server (probably your router). Then, every time the router see's your Pi's MAC address, it will assign the same IP. 2. DHCP: Wrong IP Pool being used by DHCP Server If your Pi is being ...

The first step (which in retrospect didn't help) is to configure your bootloader with POWER_OFF_ON_HALT=0 and WAKE_ON_GPIO=1 (I think the latter forces the former). Your RPi will never be fully shut down in this way, but it won't power down during a reboot either. The next thing you could try is updating the bootloader with sudo rpi-eeprom-update, and ...

I want to record audio from either the OS or a specific program. You can store all speaker output by this procedure.

One possible problem may be the DHCP client. It will always get an ip address and network configuration (DNS server, gateway, default route etc.) on boot up. When the lease has expired the DHCP client may have a problem to renew it. If it cannot renew its ip addres then it will configure a link-local ip address 169.254.197.68/16 which does not fit to you ...

Usually the entry point to your private network is the public ip address of your internet router with port forwarding. From the private network out to the internet there is a Network Address Translation on the internet router used so all external destination devices (e.g. web server) only see this public ip address as source ip address no matter what client ...

I resolved the problem. It was a misconfigured /etc/fstab file. For whatever reason, the pi refuses to boot when there is an error in this file. I was able to repair the problem by mounting the SD card on a different Linux machine and edit /etc/fstab there. I only managed to figure it out by borrowing a monitor and seeing the messages displayed during ...

This is a combination of M. Rostami's answer and my reflections on his answer, which I found cumbersome to add as comments. NB: Your question shows you know how to find your public IP address and the internal address of your Pi. I've included directions here in the hope that they will help others. On your Pi, set up SSH on the default port number, port 22....

Port forwarded ~ 21 both TCP and UDP It's actually forward packets to port number 21 which is the default port of FTP. You must change it to port number 22 on your router/switch. If you are stubborn about changing the default port of SSH which is 22 to another port number, take note that you can set the SSH default port to 21 but the FTP client would be ...

First method: You can install it manually by: wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/php7.4/php7.4_7.4.1-1_all.deb And then: dpkg -i php7.4_7.4.1-1_all.deb It gives you a lot of dependencies which you must install before this package. It's the hardest method. Look at the second method which is much easier. Second method: Ensure your ...

You can set a special SSID (WiFi network) to the wpa_supplicant.conf: nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf Add these details of your SSID to that config file like: network={ ssid="testing" psk="testingPassword" } You can find more about it here. I do not want to edit wpa_supplicant.conf every time it discover another network. ...

Provided that the SSH server at the PI is actually configured to listen on port 21 instead of the default 22, and that the network public IP address doesn't change. Then you should just SSH to the public IP address of your network. >ssh 11.111.11.11 21 login the same way as you do when only using the local (home) network. Using no-ip or dydns can help ...

First the ssh port is usually port 22 but it can be changed and secondly you only need tcp not udp. Another issue that can crop up is ensuring the pi will accept connections on port 22 from outside your LAN which can be achieved using UFW https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UncomplicatedFirewall Make sure you set a strong password or better still use SSH keys as you ...

You can install Screen Configuration with sudo apt install -y arandr. What you really want to do is see what you uninstalled. Easy: This command shows you what is in the apt-get log file: cat /var/log/apt/history.log Still missing something? You can quickly compare what your desktop looks like vs default Raspbian using my vdesktop tool. Essentially it ...

I fixed it in a roundabout way by installing bluez and bluetooth tools. There are still 4 bluetooth items in the taskbar, but only bluez works. I can connect with it, so I guess this is answered.

Ok, after some testing it seems like the watchdog module is loaded by default. To check for yourself, see if /dev/watchdog exists. This is the guide what worked for me.


1

Do NOT fiddle with iw(or any other low level tool). Run sudo raspi-config (or the GUI equivalent) and set appropriate Localisation Options


1

Do NOT attempt to load ANY modules. Add dtparam=watchdog=on to config.txt and Device Tree will load the module. NOTE you also need to enable the watchdog service. See https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/a/68332/8697

Update 17/7/2019 I found that the issue is the .asoundrc file that I setup for the pi user, to define the default ALSA devices for input and output.

For 0-10V DC Dimming, 0V does not equate to 0 light output. The dimming ballast or drivers are rated for a 10-100% or 1-100% dimming range. To turn the fixture completely off, you also need a relay that kills power to the driver or ballast at the bottom end of the 0-10V range.

If you are unable to see video signal and unable to connect RPi4 via VNC and SSH, I would try to connect the SD card to computer and reset /boot/config.txt back to default or use second SD card with default OS and screen settings to see if that help to make RPi booting and sending a video signal. Regarding 4K (UHD) not working, check the following things: ...

It is possible that your SD Card gets weak over a long time. The problem is that SD Cards doesn't report read/write errors to the operating system. It could be that you can flash it but then it looses some bits and bytes after some days possibly still the same weak cells so the symptoms are always the same. You should consider to use a new SD Card.

The network configuration is configured in /etc/dhcpcd.conf. Just add a line at the end of this file: static routers=192.168.0.1 This is only an example. Of course you have to use the ip address of your gateway. This will permanently save the gateway address. But this is only a workaround. Usually the gateway/router address is gotten from the DHCP server ...
