@Hightree: Depending no your use-cases, playing with the ZSH profile/env in /mnt/us/usbnet/etc/zsh might be enough to fake it.

But if you were hoping to use it for scp/sftp, that won't quite work, because ZSH isn't the default shell.

I honestly don't recall what's persistent and what's dynamic, but assuming none of that is dynamic, you might have better luck just creating a new dedicated user that lives wherever you want it.

(I wouldn't necessarily recommend touching the state of the root account, because you never really know what that might break in fun and interesting ways...).

Thank you.
I do use sftp (my client supports also SCP,FTP,Webdav,Amazon S3).
Not sure why it matters that ZSH isn't the default shell?
For SFTP a profile/settings isn't needed, so I could use a default shell for SFTP.
Only need profile for SSH/console.

Is in Kindle (KT2 and later) account created with the same tools as for regular linux?
I'm not a linux person, so my questions may be silly
If its same tools as with regular linux, there should be plenty info on web.
Can I create another user with ROOT priveleges from default root account?
Any recommended path for new account?

Python unistall script fails

PW5 here, fw 5.16.2.1 with Language Jailbreak running without issue.

When jailbreaking, I installed successfully the python plugin, but lately I've read a message from Niluje stating it is not needed on this fw version, so I decided to uninstall it.
I have put the uninstall.bin in mrpackages folder and run the mrpi installer, but it says "script failed, moving on" and eventually reboots the UI.

When rebooting, I'm finding a new txt document among my books:

[I had to remove lines or MR would not accept the post]

Found no developer crash logs

Found no active-content-data crash logs


You can find attached the tgz file (please remove the fake .zip extension).
This is not the first run, I ran it twice and this is the log of the second attempts.
Already in the first run I could see that even if it failed, it actually removed the python directory in main folder, but it left there the python3 directory, with about 120MB of files inside.

My question is: may I simple delete that directory and I am good to go, or is there something else I must to in order to remove the plugin?

Thanks!

It's not so much as "not needed" as it's unsupported .

More helpful would have been the MRPI log, but, anyways, yeah, mostly harmless, just kill the folder.

Sorry @NiLuJe,

I lost track of updates. Is the Battery Status extension up to date for 5.16.x? Or do you have a list of what IS and what IS NOT updated?

Nothing's updated. The only possibly sane packages are the bridge, KUAL and USBNet.

EDIT: For < 5.16.3, I mean. >= 5.16.3 will require a new toolchain, new binaries and dedicated packages.

Got it, thanks!

For Battery status, what input do you need to “update” it? Like, the actual battery controller files’ locations and stuff?

Nope, it's all gasgauge-info, so it'll probably mostly work automagically.

Hi @NiLuJe,

BatteryStatus works!
However, it reports most of the things 1000 times more.
Is this fixable? The code is a real awk jungle...

They've probably gone to microamps and microvolts.

The KOA2 went from F to C for temperatue (centiC actually).

Like I said earlier, that's unprocessed output from `gasgauge-info`, so, technically not my bug ;o).
