Re: DietPi for newbie

One other small comment - when you put the uSD card back into the PC, if it's a Windows PC you'll see the boot partition as a new drive, but you may also see other drive(s) created which Windows will say has problems and will offer to try and fix them. Do not do this, as they are perfectly fine but ...

Re: Unwanted Shutdown of Dietpi Device

Concerning logs I've no idea, someone else will have to answer that.

It's just from experience of issues and shutdowns over the years with various Raspberry Pi's which almost always ended up as either being dying power supplies or occasionally dying uSD cards.

Re: Unwanted Shutdown of Dietpi Device

How old is the charger? Over time such hardware can tend to degrade, producing lower current and voltage which could perhaps cause such an issue if the device happens to do something requiring more juice (especially if anything's hooked up to the USB ports etc). First thing I'd do is either test wha...

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.
