As far as I understand you frequently want to modify an image to boot it with different conditions. I would use LVM (Logical Volume Manager). With it you can have the master installation that you boot to create a snapshot of it. Then you can mount the snapshot and modify it as needed. Just by changing /boot/cmdline.txt and /etc/fstab (on the snapshot) to ...

I personally prefer to mount my raspberrypi to a local directory using sshfs and then open that directory in my editor. When I want to run the program on the pi, I use a terminal (which could be the terminal built into the editor), ssh into the pi, and run the program from there. After installing sshfs, which is done differently depending on your operating ...

After a few weeks I was finally able to perform a few benchmarks. The results are shown below: Computer Arch CPU RAM Drive Java Build Time ------------- ------ -------- ----- -------- ------ ---------- Lenovo T420 64-bit i5-2520M 16 GB SATA SSD 11+28 0:25 Lenovo T480 64-bit i5-8350U 16 GB NVMe SSD 11+28 ...

Jenkins and Maven by themselves don't consume any significant CPU time. You need to profile specific implementations of the compilers you're going to use. If you're interested in GCC and don't have a Pi for a test, I can tell you that building the Pale Moon browser on a Pi 4 takes a bit more than 3 hours, vs. 30 minutes on an i7.

Your code snippet is not as simple as you may think. Environment variables are set separately for each process (possibly with inheritance), so if you set MY_ENV_VAR in a shell and test for it from the same shell (with Python code or otherwise) it will be set. If you run Python from a different shell, it won't be. Even in the same shell, you may lose ...

That is sadly enough very normal, at first. If you are writing a bare bone kernel for RaspberryPi 1 or 2 then I wrote a little bootloader called raspbootin that will fetch the kernel image over serial at boot. I plan to update it to support RPi3 and RPI4 in 32bit and 64bit at some time. This is a good solution for real low-level work. The RPi4 can also use ...
