Re: Step-by.step help with install Jivelite and/or Squeezeplay

I don't have a desktop on either of my DietPi installations, so I can't help with that. But if you have a Windows machine you would basically Download the Rpi image Burn it using Etcher or Rufus to a suitable SD card Insert the SD card into your Rpi Hook up a keyboard and screen Power up the Pi Prof...

Re: Squeezelite: change the machine name

There's no misunderstanding :) I'm just plain incompetent.

Thanks for the tip, I'll have a look.

Edit: It's done, thanks. I never even knew that existed. You can tell I'm a Windows user given I don't RTFM. My bad, sorry!

Rpi4 issues

So I am trying to replace my Tinker + Armbian with RPi4 + DietPi for a fileserver + transmission + very long Chromium downloads over RDP. The system is totally headless, there's no screen or keyboard and I was using a mix of console and desktop (remotely) to accomplish everything. The RPi4's generou...

Re: TinkerBoard not booting 6.18

Thanks for the replies, I rewrote Volumio to the SDCard and it boots fine so the card is okay. I am going to assume it is another foible and try and get Linaro *ugh* to do what I need. Diet Pi is lighter and might suit me more, but I had quite a few issues last time around too, and Armbian simply wo...

TinkerBoard not booting 6.18

As the topic says, there is no disk activity when inserting Diet Pi SD card into Tinkerboard (non-S model). No logo on screen, like the board is dead. Things tried: Download image again Extract .img file again Fresh write on different SD card Fresh write using Win32DiskImager and Rufus instead of Et...

Re: Raspberry Pi Alternative

The Rock64 seems like a decent upgrade and not too pricey. The USB 3.0 and Gigabit ethernet point to being a capable fileserver, and the price is similar to the Pi. I've been thinking about giving it a whirl myself, problem is that in my country things get quite pricey when importing. The board is a...

Re: DietPi & ARMbian (lightweight & optimization comparison)

I didn't really have to choose, I use both! :) I have an Asus Tinker running Armbian Stretch as a home server with Samba, LMS and Torrents, and a Rpi Zero running DietPi for a Squeezelite endpoint (the eventual plan is to migrate it into a clock radio of some kind). The last time I downloaded DietPi...

Re: Err_Connection_refused

Hi k-plan, Thanks again for your reply. I am planning on getting a fresh start anyway, this was only a test run. I plan on hooking up a 4TB portable harddrive and let it do most of the heavy lifting, only turning on the Windows server for sync and the occasional archive. However I am unable to see a...

Re: Err_Connection_refused

Thanks for the reply, K-plan, much appreciated. At the outset let me state that when it comes to Linux I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm helplessly poking around the menus and Google, trying to get things to work. I am now okay with Samba and Transmission, both are accessible over the windows netwo...
