Random Pi/Linux Learning
randr? C_LOG_29December 29, 2015
Tonight I was feeling scatter brained on what to learn about and came up with a few random ideas which so far were unsuccessful.
- I tried building vscode on a raspberry pi inspired by Marc Gravell. I was able to clone the repository, install the dependencies and build it with the appropriate
gulp watchcommand executed (took quite a long time) however
./scripts/code.shfails with an error which appears to be something about headless mode.
Xlib extension “RANDR” missing on display “:1”
- Learned how to build something from source, even though the last step failed
- I think I need to find a new vnc server, something with this randr seems to be missing from tightvncserver
- I didn't really create much tonight, but did accomplish...something...so that is a win at least? Right?
