Is DietPi the Solution?

Postby jsfrederick » Sun Nov 12, 2017 3:47 am

I currently run two RPi 3's, one running NextcloudPi, and one running Pi-hole and PiVPN. Hi have been unhappy with the performance of both. I just acquired 2 Rock64 boards and am looking at replacing the RPi's. I'd really like to move to a 64 bit OS, but have not found any that are ready or any that do not need MAJOR work.

So, I'm thinking of using DietPi to run both. I can see that it looks like DietPi already has install scripts for both Nextcloud and PI-Hole/PiVPN. I am wondering of anyone has run a Rock64 board with DietPi yet? Of so, any insight into how Nextcloud runs on DietPi/Rock64 vs. RPi/Raspbian.

Also the same info for Pi-Hole/PiVPN.

Thanks!

Another question. Is DietPI a 32 bit OS, or is it 64?

Both, depends on image.

Rock64 = 64bit image
RPi = 32bit image

Well then, looks like it's going to be DietPI on the Rock 64!

Thanks Fourdee!
