CPU temperature stuff for cpufreqd, from the Debian forum

Posted Yesterday at 12:03 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just to compile my "findings" here



[SOLVED] - it turns out that the driver I thought I needed to use, it8718, was only one of the drivers detected by sensors-detect (or detect-sensors, whatever), other one I've missed was actually called just "coretemp". I thought it was a label, not an actual driver. My sensors.conf hadn't a section for such driver though. I've googled a

"Rofi" seems to be the best alt+f2 / fbrun replacement for Openbox

Not to be confused with ROFL.
Fbrun is quite nice, does what is supposed to, but the history corruption is quite disappointing.
Gmrun looks nice, but is terribly limited, you can't launch a command with any parameter, "foobarizer /path/to/file --foo --bar" becomes just "foobarizer." Yet it seems somewhat noticeably slower than FBrun.

I thought I could have an improvised replacement with something like bash -c "$(zenity --entry)", but it's...

A word on partitioning and permissions (for newbies)

Posted 09-06-2019 at 07:53 AM by zeebra

Unless you are completely new to GNU/Linux and/or have no idea what you are doing, ALWAYS use 1. manual partition setup when installing a distro! If you don't you have absolutely no control over what happens, you learn nothing, you (probably) end up with a bad setup and you can't plan for persistence. Besides that, auto-partitioning will usually whipe your whole disk!

RaspAnd Pie 9 for Raspberry Pi 3 B and B+ :: Build 190903 :: with Google Chrome,YouTube, Aurora Store and F-DroidFree and Open Source Android App Repository. NOTE: Aurora and F-Droid are replacements for Yalp Store and Aptoide App Manager. Yalp doesn’t work anymore. Aptoide works very well in RaspAnd Pie, but I had no room for it in this build. You can, however, easily install Aptoide yourself.
