I had taken a few weeks off!. I've had a lot of work this week with PiKISS. I just missed being a trending topic on Twitter, ha ha. I thank all of you who have supported me, both financially in Paypal where I am receiving donations from users who have found the project very interesting, and those who have spread it through social networks. The article in the prestigious Tom's Hardware has also been an injection of desire to move forward. Now it's time to do my best and get out some new scripts, although there's a lot of old and obsolete code that I'd like to refactor and that gives me a little bit of shame, you know how demanding I am, so I don't get involved anymore. I leave you the links that I have collected this week that are interesting... Here we go!
Raspberry Pi 4, now running your favorite distribution!: Who needs Raspberry OS when you can have Debian. The image comes with no extra software, only the compressed image is about 363 MB. It comes with kernel 5.7.0-2 and if you have the RPi 4 8 GB, you better wait for them to fix a bug with the USB ports. | gwolf.org
UASP makes Raspberry Pi 4 disk IO 50% faster: UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) is a File Transfer Protocol (It's not FTP!). I didn't know that the one usually used is called BOT (Bulk-Only Transport). This article explains it quite well, although I haven't had time to read it thoroughly. By the way, Jeff's blog is very interesting and worth to have in the bookmarks. | jeffgeerling.com
Writing GUI applications on the Raspberry Pi without a desktop environment: Of course, using framebuffer. It's not the best way to get something that needs speed, but it works. They also comment a library called Raylib with many advantages to work with accelerated hardware. | medium.com
