  • Is it possible to create a Open Media Vault storage on a Raspberry Pi Zero W?
  • I know everyone says wireguard is super easy to set up, but I can't figure it out (raspberry pi) | 2021-10-12
    If you want to simplify this even more I would say use dietpi: it has a CLI GUI to install services like pihole/adguard home and pivpn just type dietpi-software then under `browse software hit space bar on each item you want installed, hit enter then go to down install and thats it it will take care of everything else for you.
  • Local WireGuard gateway not forwarding traffic with IPtables
    The preamble - I have run VPN gateway servers for my local network in the past using ARM86 SBC's running OpenVPN on Dietpi. The SBC acts as the network gateway so when local clients are pointed at it - it forwards their traffic over it's vpn interface and on to the router, effectively acting as a vpn for any connected devices. I recently upgraded to an x86 server running fedora and wireguard which I am trying do the same thing with.

  • Looking to get started with a small budget home server/NAS
    Operating system: DietPi (optimized Debian OS, this looks like a good option to me given the ease-of-use optimization and list of optimized and supported applications)
  • Are 256 MB of RAM sufficient for Pi-Hole Operation? | 2021-09-29
    Hello, I'm research the best single-board computer to use as the hardware on which to run Pi-hole, pre-installed as part of the DietPi set up process. One of the compatible hardware options is the NanoPi NEO and, because it is only 40mm square yet has on-board RJ-45 port (only 100 Mbps Ethernet but should be sufficient for Pi-hole), I am only really wondering about the feasibility of the onboard memory.

    Though I would recommend installing DietPi as it is very light on ram usage, and comes with optional list of pre-configured softwares that you can choose to install to make your setup easier.

  • What’s your preferred host OS?
    DietPi. It is a lightweight OS with a bunch of useful features. While it is mainly designed for single-board computers like the pi, it works perfectly with any x86 computer.
  • NooB question - I am trying to setup a media server | 2021-08-13
    If you want something that holds your hand, I believe Diet Pi OS has options available to install and configure Plex, Radarr, Sonarr, Lidarr and etc. The main site is here and the curated software options are in this list. It’s meant for Raspberry Pi boards but you can download a version for normal desktop/laptops.
  • New to self hosting: Raspberry pi?
    A few notes: 1. For Jellyfin, hardware acceleration is not working in 64bit OS . So I would recommend 32bit OS. 2. Ubuntu server reserved port 53 for systemd-resolved, so if you want to run Pihole/adguard, make sure to disable it. 3. Another OS to consider: DietPi. It provides tools to install common software including docker & docker-compose. And it write logs to ram by default, so it help to prolong your SD card life.
  • Distros recommended for older Pis and SD cards?
    You could try DietPi.
