Re: Can't run Debian on Raspberry Pi4

I am brain dead. Use Etcher to Clone the sd card install that works to your SSD. Since I am technically on RSPIOS I used the Sd Card Copier app to copy my system from a working sd card to my SSD. Rebooted and poof it worked. If that doesn't work, install raspberry pi os, let it update/upgrade. The r...

Re: Can't run Debian on Raspberry Pi4

Or you can just be lazy like I am. I installed the Raspberry Pi arm64 beta, let it do its thing while booting. Added the rpios bullseye repo, ran apt update, apt upgrade, let whatever needed to upgrade upgrade. Now for the fun part I added Debian Sid and Experimental repos. Did the usual update/upgr...

Re: Can't run Debian on Raspberry Pi4

Try this one https://raspi.debian.net/daily/raspi_4_bullseye.img.xz

How are you writing the img to your sd card?

I suggest using the Raspberry Imager or etcher. Either should work.

Re: Enable SPI on Raspberry Pi zero W. (Bullseye)

doing sudo modprobe spi-bcm2835
should work. On my system:
sudo modprobe spi-bcm2835
sudo lsmod | grep spi
spi_bcm2835 24576 0

Then make sure dtparam=spi=on is in your /boot/config.txt

If you are using Python you need python3-spidev.
You might also need spi-tools.

Re: Removing Firefox-ESR

try running:

Code: Select all

sudo apt purge ~c
That will purge any leftover configs.
Try looking in /.local/share/applications for leftover desktop file.

Re: Starting with Debian

I would say go ahead and install Bullseye/Testing. At this point it is as stable as it will probably get, the push is on to release by the end of July. You can easily install things like gnome-software in order to have access to new packages in the form of flatpaks and snaps. Other than that stick w...
