I could not get anything to update until until I ranked the package servers. After expanding the partition, it still reports the original size. The local screen settings icon stopped functioning after it failed to save the setting, so I modified config.txt to get the local 7" display the right way up.
I just tried RuneAudio+R-e2 with my new Raspberry Pi 4B and the offical RPi 7" screen. For the most part it works very well. It is much easier to configure, with most things working right out of the box.
However, I experienced the same problems noted above: i.e., no virtual keyboard to configure changes on the 7" screen, the local screen settings failed to change the rotation, and then stopped functioning entirely. I added
- Code: Select all
to /boot/config.txt and the screen rotated 180 degrees. This is important because the screen's normal rotation puts the power plug on the bottom, which makes it hard to stand the screen up.
I also had issues updating the image. The first time I tried, the update seemed to want to update everything, including things I hadn't installed, such as the bittorrent client. After that, all further attempts at updating failed.
I reflashed the image and followed R101's advice and ranked the package servers before updating. The update process again tried to update everything and seemed to fail. I continued to try the update and eventually it just worked. I don't know the exact sequence of things I tried. At first, I also wasn't able to expand the partition, but eventually that too worked.
Other than the above, it's a great step forward. Thanks very much, Rern!
