Hey Vince, try pi-stats. Do you have a linux OS running on the subject device? 73

Vince,

Give these commands a try:

lscpu
cpuinfo
cat /proc/cpuinfo
lshw

If you need to install any of those, try something like this

Apt-get update
apt-get <package name>

Best regards,

Re: I have a new to me Raspberry Pi board

A few recommendations to run from the command line:

    free
      - This will show the amount of RAM populated, used (for programs and cache)

   cat /proc/cpuinfo
      - This will list the type and number of CPU cores

   bash <(wget -q -O - "http://www.trinityos.com/HAM/CentosDigitalModes/RPi/usr/local/bin/review-rpi-cpu.sh")
      - This will download a script I put together to show lots of additional details specific to the Raspberry Pi


For different Rpi pictures, showing the differences, use a Internet search of "pictures of all raspberry pi models" will bring up many examples

Re: New Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W released!

Btw, for what it's worth, I've updated my Rpi amateur radio doc to include various specs and details of the new board as well a new feature sections like adding a variable speed fan, light sensor and IR transmitter support, improved security hardening steps, etc.

Hello Everyone,

If you haven't already heard, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has released a new Raspberry Pi Zero named the "Zero 2 W".  It essentially is the same as the Zero W but now has a four-core processor similar to the Rpi 3 (not the 3+).  This means we now have a much more modern processor design with four CPU cores instead of one.  This does come at a power consumption cost but it might be possible to disable some of the cores to lower the power down.  Time will tell on what's possible but also being on a newer CPU design, a lot more alternative OSes will become available for this SBC:

Re: WVCARC Etsy store

Mat Murdock
 

That did the trick.  The only change in the documentation is what USB type to select, as Serial + Audio does not exist.  Attached are compiled binary's if any wants it. This turns your TNC-Pi96 into a basic sound card and works with VARA and SoundModem if you want to go that route.  Makes the device even more flexible.  You will need to connect the TNC to your computer via the micro usb port.  I have only tried it on Windows.

Re: Professors, PLEASE!

Ah, the tyranny of the mobile phone. Unfortunately, it is effectively
relegating serious discussion, which necessarily requires more lengthy
messages, to history's dust bin.

In the same vein, I've been observing that people increasingly fail to add
the "ly" to the adverbs they use. I fear we are becoming less literate over
time...

Very well said. As a former Professor and somewhat new radio guy I whole-heartedly echo Tadd's gentle remarks.

Why? He only wants to back up his drive to install a new OS. Just spend $70 and buy another drive.

I have a 32 GB flash drive now.  I used it to try to transfer a backup with an error and it would give an error and limit the file to 4 GB.  That file was deleted.

First, I want to change the name of the thumb drive directly.  When I try to do that I find I get an error and it doesn't change the name.

Second, can I delete the extra files that where already on the thumb drive (when purchased, I think).

Re: Problems with thumbdrive backup #hampi

 

Run gparted and reformat the thumb drive FAT32 before you re-use it. gparted will also rename it.

If you want to take a copy of your Pi herd drive you will need another drive at least as big. Back it up with 'dd if-[existing drive] of=[new drive]'
