how to fix a readonly rootfs partition?

Hi Everyone, I recently updated Dietpi on my Raspberry Pi Zero W to 6.28 and after 1-2 days it crashed. :cry: I had also updated other things, notably I added python 3.5-dev because my installation of Domtoticz needed it to run plugins. I am not sure if the updates had anything to do with all this o...

Re: Configuring crontab and logs.

I was planning on installing rsyslog when I came across this post. The reason I wanted to use rsyslog was because I would like to have logs from other networked devices sent to my DietPi. Looking into systemd-journal, I saw what appears to be a separate systemd-journal-remote.service. Does this alre...

Re: Using UART

Many thanks for the hint, better late than never. :D I had been thinking of adding chmod a+rw /dev/ttyS0 to the /etc/rc.local file but that's absolutely not secure and your suggestion is obviously the best way to do it. Meanwhile, after I updated DietPi from v6.25.3 to v6.26.3 I have been able to no...

Re: Using UART

I think I found a solution, well kind of :roll:. I was able to finally get ttyS0 working but still was unable to do anything with ttyAMA0. :cry: I guess it has to do with interference from Bluetooth even though I have Bluetooth switched off. Nevertheless, the problem with ttys0 appears to be with pe...

Re: Using UART

A quick update: I tried using AMA0/serial1 with the console setting in dietp-config set to off. Bluetooth is also off. The output of the loopback script is the same: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/serial/serialposix.py", line 265, in open self.fd = os...

Infrared + Keyes IR input 838B

Hi, I would like to use my TV (Samsung) remote with Kodi. Apparently the remote is CEC compatible and the adapter actually loads in Kodi but my remote doesn't work. So I bought a VS1838 IR receiver module and I also have a Keyes IR input 838B (also known as HX1838B) which came with another generic r...

Re: Kodi 18 Stretch

For me my PVR/AddOns list is still empty (Kodi18/Stretch). I also did

apt-get install kodi-pvr-iptvsimple kodi-inputstream-rtmp

and the install proceeded normally, but when I rebooted and started Kodi still no PVR. :cry:

Any ideas?

Update: nodeJS installation broken?

Hi, This is an update to my problem. Because the node-red installation first needs NodeJS to be installed, I ran the following: dietpi-software install 9 This was the result: Mode: Installing Node.js: javascript runtime [ OK ] DietPi-Software | Connection test: http://raw.githubusercontent.com/taaem...
