DietPi v6.31


Changes / Improvements / Optimisations:

  • RPi | Support for Raspberry Pi OS (64-bit) has been added, including any other Debian pre-image on RPi. Many thanks to @FusionPlmH for doing this request:
  • Odroid C4 | Support for this new Hardkernel SBC has been added to allow image creation based on Meveric’s Odroid repository, including Kodi support.
  • Network | “ping” can now be used by all users without any file capabilities, sudo or setuid. For this we allow all users to create native ICMP sockets which are available since Linux 3.X but disabled by default on Debian. Other distributions and systemd (upstream) have this enabled by default and for security and usability reasons we follow them:
  • DietPi-Login | A new setting has been added which allows to skip the interactive GPLv2 license agreement on first login. Add/set “AUTO_SETUP_ACCEPT_LICENSE=1” in (/boot/)dietpi.txt in which case we assume you read and agreed the license text at least once. Many thanks to @mrbluecoat for reporting the urgent use-case of Chromium kiosk mode autostart without keyboard attached:
  • DietPi-Cleaner | Enhanced performance of the files cleaner if /mnt is skipped, especially in combination with large drives or network mounts. Many thanks to @maartenlangeveld for revealing the underlying issue:
  • DietPi-Drive_Manager | SSHFS entries in fstab are now detected and preserved. Many thanks to @notwork for doing this suggestion:
  • DietPi-Config | Added Ethernet link speed selection to Network>Ethernet menu. The function and dietpi.txt entry exists for a long time but it was only exposed as first run setup option.
  • DietPi-Software | WireGuard: Added generic support for all SBCs where the WireGuard kernel module is shipped together with the kernel package. This applies to most current Armbian-based images at the time of writing and will be the more regular case since Linux 5.6 has WireGuard natively integrated.
  • DietPi-Software | Firefox Sync Server has been added to our software list, which allows to sync your Firefox bookmarks, history, tabs and passwords via your self-hosted server. Many thanks and all credits to @CedArctic for implementing this software title:
  • DietPi-Software | Folding@Home: Updated to latest v7.6.X, which includes an explicit option for prioritising COVID 19 projects:
    This update is applied to all systems with DietPi v6.31, existing config and data are preserved.
  • DietPi-Software | Sonarr/Radarr/Lidarr: The /media directory as second common mount point can now also be used as download/media directory without manually adding it to the systemd units ReadWritePaths list. Many thanks to @ricardoandren for doing this suggestion:
  • DietPi-Software | Samba Server: Changed default server-side file permissions from 0775 to 0664, hence files on the server are by default created without execute permissions now, which suits usual standards. Many thanks to @maartenlangeveld for doing this suggestion:
  • DietPi-Software | QuiteRSS: Re-added the years ago accidentally removed install code block. If you ever wondered why there was no QuiteRSS after selecting it for install, now there will be. If it is marked as installed already, run either “dietpi-software install 22” or simply “apt install quiterss” to (really) get it.
  • DietPi-Software | SqueezeLite: Updated to v1.9.7 and the service runs now as own user “squeezelite”. Many thanks to @volpone for doing the update request:
