GRIZ Sextant (Raspberry Pi Cyberdeck)

GRIZ Sextant (Raspberry Pi Cyberdeck) - another effort at a Rpi laptop.

I would like further details of the back-of-the-board USB connection, so you do not need the out-n-in USB cable

YouTube series - also he puts in a power booster. For people here, I think the best is to run it off the barrel jack.

CrowPi designers put the power components in the unit - so, use them - from 12V.

For me it would be more convenient from 18V - my power drill battery - or even 19V - the inevitable old laptop charger doing nothing.

It looks a little clumsy and small and with the release of the Pi400 why bother!

I downloaded the 64bit image for the Raspberry PI 400, newest 2020.04 mentioning RPI 400. After booting, wifi does not show up, ifconfig does not list it. How do I enable wifi?
Thanks.

try this
I don't remember if this is required any more.

In a terminal window type in

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
then 'Localisation Options' - then set your locale, timezone and WLAN country.

if that doesn't work try this

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

sudo apt install firmware-brcm80211
