Re: Pi ZeroW wont connect to WiFi

In the UK BT usually means the company that used to call itself British Telecom, essentially similar to AT&T and before it Bell Telephone. It escaped from government ownership in 1983 (although management attitudes took longer to move out of the public sector) but is still a fairly big player in...

Re: What upgrade to select when automatically prompted?

Yes, the difference is that the OS updates are not done unless you are in a terminal via ssh. Not exactly. OS updates are handled by the unattended-upgrades service. https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades Yes, although experience with that suggests that there are very few non-security related u...

Re: Newbie About To Take The Plunge.

This should be handled by the daily updates that occur during the night hours, all of the host files are updated from the Pi-Star servers. The same is true for Pi-Star updates but not for upgrades (where the Pi-Star version changes, i.e. 4.1.3 -> 4.1.4 being the last such event). Underlying OS chang...

Re: What upgrade to select when automatically prompted?

It is worth noting that sometimes the update phase doesn't fully update the underlying OS It isn't supposed to. The reason "apt-get upgrade" doesn't remove packages is because it is designed to be completely safe and not break things. The average user should not be running "apt-get f...

Re: What upgrade to select when automatically prompted?

Thanks everybody for your support! I will do it shortly. May I ask what is the difference between the ops done via SSH interface and with respect to the Update and Upgrade done by selecting "Update" and "Upgrade" in the top pi-star screen between Admin and Backup/Restore? Yes, t...

Re: Cant get confirmation of call access

Pretty sure that you need to use a mode where the radio thinks it is in repeater mode. Normal way of doing this is to set it to dup+ or dup- with a shift of zero.

Newer Icoms call this DR mode, I don't know if the 92D has a different name for it.

Re: What upgrade to select when automatically prompted?

sudo pistar-update sudo pistar-upgrade Be advised, you /may/ need to run the latter a few times until it says there are no upgrades -- the dashboard changes tend to upgrade incrementally, not in a single leap. OTOH, as you were running a 4.x it may have upgraded automatically if left on overnight. ...

Re: What upgrade to select when automatically prompted?

If you have 4.1.3 then you need to ssh in using the Configuration->Expert->SSH Access menu link.

Once logged in you type

sudo pistar-update

once that has completed (it may take some time as it updates the OS as well as the Pi-Star files) type

sudo pistar-upgrade

and then you should reboot.
