What blocked me from from even considering the issue, was I could have sworn when I first upgraded to 23.3.1 I had upgraded to Bullseye? Is it possible I built it on a Rpi4 and just put the SD Card in the Rpi3? Would that work? I wish I checked before I over-wrote the SD Card…
FYI … answered my own question. I built a from-scratch (Bullseye - latest release); wfpiconsole on my Rpi400.
move the SDCard over to my Rpi3b - works fine so far ?
