Re: Flash on ARM Chromium (or FF?)

For others trying to run Flash on ARM/DietPi. The whole process was actually rather simple. I had to run these two commands (after installing a DE): apt-get install chromium-browser apt-get install rpi-chromium-mods NOTE: I wasn't able to launch chromium in it's default state. I had to launch it via...

Re: Flash on ARM Chromium (or FF?)

Thanks for the heads up. I will test out RPi camera support to see how it impacts the overall experience. Streaming video (youtube) as well as GPU-accelerated local video file playback (regular HD content only tho) is part of the use case for this computer. It looks like I can install camera support...

Re: Open Beta v6.26 | Please help testing and hardening the upcoming release

Thank you for the new version and all the hard work you put in!

Update from v6.25 went perfectly.

Good to see the initial-turbo being back. I did notice a slight increase in boot time when I switch to the RPi 4; this seems to be resolved with the initial-turbo fix.

Re: Flash on ARM Chromium (or FF?)

It looks like the official Raspbian supports flash: http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/release_notes.txt "Version 32.0.0.255 of Flash player added" Does this mean installing Chromium on one of the desktop option for DietPi (e.g. XFCE) would come with flash support? It will still be a week or ...

Re: Flash on ARM Chromium (or FF?)

Unfortunately the need for flash is outside of my control. I personally don't use it, but the relative does. On Ubunutu x86 I was not able to get the service running using the "base" version of flash for linux on FF. Only Pepper flash on Chrome worked. So I think the only option is to try and get Ch...

Flash on ARM Chromium (or FF?)

I am considering building a new RPi 4 device with DietPi for a relative. Their needs are limited to web browsing, media playback and basic document viewing (PDF). However, the relative does need flash support. I have only used DietPi as a server, so I don't have experience with desktops. If I instal...

Re: Running DietPi VM images on Google Cloud

For what it's worth, I was able to pass Google's pre-check tool , but I got a warning about SSH access (something about port 22 not being open). Google was also able to successfully convert the VMware image, but I was not able to get in via SSH, although this doesn't seem to be a SSH issue as you ca...

Running DietPi VM images on Google Cloud

Hello! I was wondering if anyone has been able to run DietPi VM images (e.g. *.vmdk images) via the Google Cloud importer? While Google say they support Debian 9, they also have a specific set of requirements for custom VM images: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/images/building-custom-os I've ...

Re: Should I Update software?

Application software updates (e.g. plex) can be independent of the DietPi update.

I would update to the latest version unless you have strong reason not to.
