  • Increase Performance and lifespan of SSDs &amp; SD Cards
    Or use DietPi - it does pretty much all of those things in the blog out of the box. And has a lot of other great features.
  • Best alternative to Raspbian for Raspberry pi 4b 8gb
    I'll throw in DietPi as well.
  • Same with ios,android and mobile linux btw
    I've pretty much centered on DietPi, which is a Debian fork optimized for compactness. I use it exclusively on my Pis (and other SBCs I have, like Odroid C2s and Rock64s) when I want headless/shell/web-UI control with minimal memory consumption. Throw that on your Pi along with the GUI of your choice and that'll be pretty close to as light as you're going to get without rolling your own distro.
  • GUI-less/Server ARM64 distro for Pi4
    DietPi is pretty interesting and available as ARM64.
  • unbound cache tweaks? | 2021-05-03
    Just FYI, from DietPi, the unbound "optimized-default" settings:
  • Any pre-configured headless PI options out there with 1-2tb SSD? | 2021-05-03
  • Debian for Pi-hole | 2021-04-27
    If you want more of a stripped down system, you can look into DietPi, which is based on Debian. They have a premade VM image available for download so all you have to do is import it. They also have a fancy instaler to select other utilities to install including pihole. It also looks like they are using 1GB of RAM. | 2021-04-27
  • Lightning Network Questions Megathread - Learn the Fundamentals
    For the node itself, what's your level of technical expertise / interest? If you know or are comfortable with learning how to administer a simple Linux system, I strongly recommend the RaspiBolt guide. One caveat, use a 64-bit Linux distribution like dietpi instead of the 32-bit Raspbian, will save you trouble. If you prefer something a little more pre-packaged / user friendly, you might try RaspiBlitz. There are higher-level options too, but I have no experience with those.
  • Who said a homelab diagram cannot be cute ? | 2021-04-25
    it's really awesome check it out. It's an extremely lightweight Debian OS, highly optimised for minimal CPU and RAM resource usage. Especially for ruuning services and apps that keep constantly logs as it writes in the RAM reducing the “thrashing” of the SD card
  • Which model pi do you use for pi hole? | 2021-04-24
    Originally Pi 1 for about 6 months then upgraded to P2 for another 6 months - then Pi 3 upgrade - very stable very useful. Started looking into several options including unbound all still working. After nearly 2 years of Pi 3 daily use - just upgraded to Pi 4 (4gb) - Stable as a rock. Now on Pi 4, unbound dns server, dhcp server, pihole, pivpn, Nordvpn all bullet proof and backed up weekly. DietPi OS is the key to stability. It handles the cache/swap properly so SD card don't kill themselves.

  • For those of you working as Linux sysadmins, what distro(s) do you prefer to use at home? | 2021-04-24
    either way try it out (i do not work for them, i just used it for like 2 years lol)
  • This setup is perfect to able my 4b pi run 24/7. I would like to use it for piVPN, OpenDNS and pihole. But I don’t know we’re to start... networking is not really my thing... do you have suggestions of where I can start? Please?
    Take a look at dietpi. It's a great way to get started on pi projects. I also like it because it mostly loads into RAM greatly reducing the wear and tear on your SD cards.
  • Any plans for ARM releases? | 2021-04-23
