DietPi Works, Then Doesn't

I have gotten DietPi to run, but then it stops loading and I’m not sure why.

Is there a DietPi chat or anything like that? Also, when it stopped, I did a restart of my device and put in an etcher formatted SD to reinstall everything again and it still seems bricked.

What should I do next?

You could have filled the template you got offered while creating the post.

What system you are running? What error message you see? Something on screen? Anything you can share?

When I installed it previously using the SD, when I connected a cable going out of it to the internet and then connected a cable to my extremely large old tower computer, i could use the internet right away.

Now I can’t. Whether I reinstall the SD or not.

The system I am running is Debian. I don’t see an error message, it says I have no network. There is also no screen. I can’t sh or Putty into it using sh because Debian doesn’t even think it’s connected to anything other than a brick.

What does this mean? You mean your tower computer is running Debian?

On a default setup we don’t offer any bridging functionality. Usually SBC have a single ethernet interface that we configure only.

Pls give some more information on the SBC used and what exactly is not working or you are trying to do. There is a reason why we have the template on the troubleshooting section. It’s not there for fun.

Double check the power going into the pi…sometimes a bad or long cord, the voltage leaving the wall wart won’t reach at the required level at the device.
