Re: NanoPi NEO4 - experiences so far

So far this little board has been an absolute pleasure to use, the only niggle I'm having with it is that occasionally (about once or twice per week at random) its SMB file shares drop out for about a minute, the shares always come back without needing to reboot but any file copy (on or off) ends up...

Re: How do I update Pi-hole

I had this exact same problem, my (hacky) solution was to back up my current pi-hole configuration (whitelist, blacklist etc). Use the dietpi-software utility to uninstall pi-hole and then use the utility to re-install it. After that it was just a couple of minutes to reconfigure it to how I had it ...

As you can see the NEO4 is a bit of a beast, easily besting the NEO2 (even though both have AES hardware acceleration)

Re: Nanopi M-4

The NEO4, M4 and T4 are all pretty much variants on the same hardware. What I did for my NEO4 was to flash with the latest Armbian image and then use the DietPi prep script to build the system from there. A word of caution though as I had to use the DEV branch of the prep script to get a working ima...

Re: NanoPi NEO4 - experiences so far

Hopefully the nice people over at FriendlyElec see this post and send you one (for testing and quality control of course). I *love* their hardware. I also have a NEO2 which is pulling double duty as a PiHole and VPN gateway, it's stable as a rock and the VPN is nice and fast (I managed 70+ Mbps over...

Re: NanoPi NEO4 - experiences so far

Just ran the DietPi benchmark, once again happy with the results though I think the RAM read speed is a little unlikely but that could be because this is a cobbled together system.

Custom filesystem is the USB3 raid array.

NanoPi NEO4 - experiences so far

Just a few observations about getting a system up and running while hoping that an official build will happen at some point in the future (since it is almost identical to the M4 and the T4 I shall remain quietly optimistic). My goal is to use the NEO4 as a backup NAS that rsyncs from my primary NAS ...

Re: [Tutorial] How to get your NanoHatOLED to work

It will indeed work with the Neo2! (I'm using the 1st gen Neo2, looks like you will be using the 3rd gen with the silver case) If you want to use my custom script that will avoid screen burn I've uploaded a new version that has a few changes - retains the FriendlyElec logo on bootup (shows the DietP...

Re: [Testers Wanted] Simple PIA VPN Gateway

Hi hd888 You can switch servers by executing the swap_endpoint.sh script If you want to switch between standard (2K) and strong (4K) encryption I'm afraid you'll need to re-run the install script (takes me about 45 seconds all up). Use the add_exception.sh script to allow a machine to bypass the VPN...
