Latest RPi 4 OS, Bullseye, is now available
« on: November 18, 2021, 08:52:34 am »
I seen on YouTube videos that the latest RPi OS, named Bullseye is now available.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNcX6W_bAYM

In the video the guy talks about the CPU can now run at 1.8 GHz (I believe the Pi4 normally runs at 1.5 GHz).

Here is a good article about overclocking the RPi 4

I haven't tried it yet. I just saw this video yesterday, so I hope to try it out shortly.

Engaging video, Bill. Thanks for sharing. The Bookshelf feature with the free computer magazines that have been expanded is pretty neat. I don't remember seeing this on the Pi 3. Was this a feature added to the OS with the Pi 4? Overall it looks very smooth and better polished. Now that I think of it, maybe I should have installed the Raspberry Pi OS on her PC instead of Ubuntu. It's more simplistic which is perfect for her.

The presenter in the video has hella' jumpy fingers. I kept wanting to grab his mouse and just hold it still for a minute. :D

I'm sorry I installed the 64 bit beta version instead of the 32 stable. Apparently there is little or no speed advantage with the 64 bit, and videos work better on the 32. I might just reinstall.

Apparently the RPi OS Bullseye edition has changed the way cameras are supported on the RPI.
Some RPI software for using a camera/webcam?, may no longer work.

I would expect the 32-bit version to use less RAM, too. With 64-bit, I believe a quarter or half a quarter of the RAM is used just for keeping track of it. I don't think the processor performs much better although there should be some increase depending on the software use.

Is that going to be a problem for your surveillance system, Bill?

I expect it will. I am using the motioneye surveillance program on my rpi. This software is used by installing it onto the microsd card used in a rpi. You do not install the rpi OS and then add the Motioneye program to the OS.
The dev of the motioneye program/OS will have to re-write his code, if he wants to use the rpi OS, Bullseye as the base OS for his Motioneye program.

I currently have Motioneye running on a rpi 3.

Hopefully, he updates it then. It might not be as hard as one might imagine or maybe it will be. The guy in the YouTube video said it used a newer version of GTK which could mean the toolbox for writing software is very much different.
