Re: XLink Kai Support

I understand, but you put it much more eloquently. I'll explore what might be missing. Still I'll leave the request for XLink to be an installable software in DietPi. It would be handy and would also be nice if it were run as a service.

Re: XLink Kai Support

Can confirm that the installation and running the kaiengine app works on the Raspberry Pi (lite) OS.

Re: XLink Kai Support

Thanks for clarifying. That makes sense to me now that it would not specifically be a DNS issue. To provide additional insight, I just burned a clean DietPi OS and booted up, ran the Kai installer, and get the same error. I'll try now on a standard Raspberry PI (lite) OS to see if I have the same re...

Re: XLink Kai Support

Thanks for the quick reply. In the Pi specific XLInk support channel on their discord, they seemed to think it was DNS related. I thought DietPi might be doing some fancy DNS workarounds to allow multiple server softwares to run in tandem (like what allows Nextcloud in a sub-directory while pihole r...

XLink Kai Support

I'm trying to use my DietPi (Raspberry Pi 3b) as an XLink Kai server. This allows for video games that support LAN mode to be played with others over the internet. It works on many consoles. I went through their install instructions, but the "kaiengine" app fails to run for me. Instruction...

Re: [Request] Recommendations on hardware setup (and restore options)

No problem. I believe a majority of my issues with a USB only system were from power supply being too low. After bumping up my powers supply things seem more stable.

Re: [Request] Recommendations on hardware setup (and restore options)

@Joulinar Thanks. that is also my thread where I was having issues with services failing to start. I've did migrate my RootFS and Userdata to an external USB SSD and thought I was all set, but then it crashed again and became unavailable and I had to restore a backup (again). Something on the system...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

I restored the USB SSD using the image for the SD card and it booted up just fine again. Any input on ways to expand the file system without it failing to boot after, or thoughts on why it's failing would be much appreciated. I'll see if I can find info on the interwebz too, or explore the Drive-Man...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Got it. Thanks for clarifying. Update on my progress: After successfully setting the USB boot option in the OTP memory, I once again flashed my full SD card backup (which contained rootfs/userdata/boot) onto my USB SSD. After removing the SD card and plugging in only the USB SSD, this time it succes...
