  • DietPi released a new version 9.1
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 23 Feb 2024
    DietPi is a lightweight Debian based Linux distribution for SBCs and server systems, with the option to install desktop environments, too. It ships as minimal image but allows to install complete and ready-to-use software stacks with a set of console based shell dialogs and scripts.

    The source code is hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi

  • Considerations for a long-running Raspberry Pi
    11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 17 Feb 2024
    I used dietpi [1] for similar reasons: a slim version of Debian, and with the defaults set to push all the logging into ram to minimize writes. Dietpi has opinionated defaults, for sure, but it's easy to choose something else (e.g. Dropbear is the default ssh server, but bumping to OpenSSH is a matter of changing a setting in the handy config tool).

    I've been running an RPi3 on an SD card as my secondary PiHole instance on it for at least a year with no issues.

    That's a good point, but the array of devices supported by the DietPi team is extensive: https://dietpi.com/
  • The Orange Pi 5

    Before someone starts the usual yadda yadda about the RPi biger community, the OS not having long time support etc. I would repeat one more time: do not rely on board vendor supplied images; this is valid for pretty much all boards. Just go to Armbian or DietPi pages and you'll almost certainly find one or more images that work on your board and forums to discuss about them with very knowledgeable people.

    Those projects are well worth a contribution, as they don't have a giant like Broadcom behind them.

  • OpenWrt One/AP-24.XY: new open source router board by OpenWrt and Banana Pi

    > bananapi do a lot of boards but their software story has been a bit poor

    This is quite common with other board manufacturers too. I'd rather suggest to ignore completely their cobbled together distros, often also tainted by proprietary modifications, that become unmaintained in a few years, and see if they're among the many supported by Armbian or DietPi.
