Re: Big HDD installation

Filesystem corruption happens during disk writes, not because of a mount flag. So no, as long as you do not manually induce writes, significantly only done during kernel upgrades, having the boot partition R/O mounted won't reduce the chance for corruption. For the root partition it is true, since i...

Re: Big HDD installation

But what is the reason for the R/O mount then? Note that only root user has write access anyway, so no reason to worry for accidents when using a regular login user.

Re: Big HDD installation

Not when you want to use dietpi-config, dietpi-software or do kernel upgrades. Many config files are located there.

Re: Problem with LetsEncrypt - Renew

Does the log file contain any more info?

Code: Select all

cat /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
When the hourly cron cleared the RAMlog already, you need to rerun certbot renew to generate a fresh log.

Re: Big HDD installation

AFAIK the Raspberry Pi bootloader does not support GPT partition tables to boot from, but I can check back. We don't have a GPT image anyway. Interesting point with the size limitation, never saw this :?. EDIT: True, 2 TiB limit with 512 bytes sector size. EDIT2: And Raspberry Pi requires the boot p...

Re: RPI 2 Model B Rev 1.1 wrong RAM size ?

Ah, how much GPU memory did you apply?

Code: Select all

grep gpu_mem /boot/config.txt
And the voltage is not stable enough. To avoid issue, see if you can use a better PSU, sometimes only a better cable is already enough.

In the other case DKMS threw a warning only, but an error is a larger issue...

Code: Select all

Re: My external HDD is written constantly, making constant noise

jbd2/mmcblk0p2 is the root filesystem's cache sync. ext4 by default has a filesystem cache enabled, so when smaller writes are done, those are not done directly physically to the disk directly, but hold in cache until accumulated to a certain amount, at least a block size (4 KiB) or so. This is to ...

Re: Seeding/uploading torrents?

All BitTorrent clients can also seed, but it might take a while until seeding peers do connect, when the inbound port is not forwarded. You can speed this up by forwarding the related port (6881 by default) from your router. Note that, if you use a VPN, port forwarding is not supported by most VPN p...

Re: wifi drivers missing after update

Did you do a reboot after the update? And which SBC/device are you using?
