Re: V4 still Beta?

Yes, what you say is true, but radio amateurs are supposed to be involved in self-training so it's not too hard to look and ask. Maybe a sticky post somewhere to give people pointers. Thanks for pointing out the OS updating scripts, I had actually missed this change because Andy has not posted any a...

Re: SD card says write protected in W10

A quick check of the write protect switch on the SD adapter would be sensible, cycle it a couple of times, or try a different adapter.

Re: V4 still Beta?

A very simple way to find out what's changed is to have a look at Andy's github page, it has a nice little graphic that makes new stuff very obvious. Look here: https://github.com/AndyTaylorTweet it shows the repos that Andy frequents. There is also one for the other Andy, CA6JAU, who is more involv...

Re: pi0 update froM RC4 to RC6

Assume you have checked that pistar-update has succeeded before you run pistar-upgrade?

I think you will need to do the upgrade step twice, each one will move to the next version I think.

Re: Unable to Switch Back to 'rpi-ro'

Updated my Pi Zero Ws with the latest kernel and got the / mount is busy message.

Ran the sudo systemctl restart systemd-udevd.service command and it disappears.

Naturally I rebooted cleanly after the kernel update but it looks like this is at least one of the culprits.

Re: Turn off read-only fiile system??

Thanks for the input - based on what I have read there is no need to consider the risk issue - its just too complicated for my simple purpose, especially if I later have to update to a new version. Having read that post I am minded to put in a USB drive for the boinc client to use. It can do what i...
