Re: How to make a duplicate of SD card with only Windows available ?

That's a good tutorial on how to do it - as you say the GUI on Win32DiskImager is a bit odd but it's easy enough once you get the hang of it and have done it a couple of times. What you'll end up with is a 32GB file (if you're taking an image of a 32GB uSD card) as it basically images everything dir...

Re: How to make a duplicate of SD card with only Windows available ?

The Win32DiskImager method should work - select the boot drive and it should actually make an image of everything. I do this routinely with Raspbian but also LibreElec cards. The latter has 3 partitions on it, only one of which is actually readable to Windows (the boot partition), but if the image i...

Re: No owncloud under "Optimized Software"?

Which version of DietPi are you running, and on what hardware?

I just checked on mine (Pi 2B running v6.25.3) and I have Owncloud as an option under optimised software (item 47).

Re: No owncloud under "Optimized Software"?

Do you specifically need OwnCloud?

NextCloud is there (#114) and is a fork of OwnCloud which for my money an improvement on it too, and works very well.

Re: KODI / LibreELEC on DietPI

I know (for full disclosure, I'm a Team Kodi member). Depending on what you're trying to do, parts of it can be remounted as read/write (see here for an example of config.txt setting). But if you want more of an OS underneath Kodi, then look at OSMC instead. It's the same Kodi, but has a less stream...

Re: Kodi fails to launch on rPi4 with PulseAudio and X11 errors

The version of Kodi being run (at least in the original post, as that has a full and non-chopped log so is of some use) is the generic default one from Debian, rather than anything that's optimised for the Pi. Have a look at the link below and try that one instead. It's more optimised for the Pi4, a...

Re: KODI / LibreELEC on DietPI

I've never tried it, but honestly I doubt it strongly.

They may be both based around Linux kernels, but they are too different I would expect. The addons from the LE repo (as opposed to the ones from the official Kodi repo) tend to be crafted specifically for the LE set-up.

Re: KODI / LibreELEC on DietPI

OpenElec is dead - it hasn't been worked on or updated for something like 2 years now.

Stick with LibreElec, with the docker add-on if required. I can confirm that works fine.

Re: KODI / LibreELEC on DietPI

Kodi is the media centre app, as you rightly state. LibreElec is a minimal bare-bones OS which is designed to run precisely one application, namely Kodi. You can't install additional stuff other than Kodi directly (there is no apt-get for example), although there is support for Docker and additional...
