It is not really made for that. Some task for the feature to have a R/O mode.
Fair enough.

I have actually switched to Alpine instead, as it fits better to my need - runs entirely in RAM.

Boot without network takes ages.

Hi.

I have disabled all networking and adapters in dietpi-config, as I am going to make some not-connected video players.

However DietPi still asks for the network during boot, and after 10 retires it gives up, and it then takes approx 2 minutes before the boot process continues.

Whats wrong?

Setting rootfs to RO is not possible in any way - mount: / is busy

Hi. I am trying to change rootfs to RO on DietPi ver 6.24 but gets a - mount: / is busy. It is a fresh install, and my video looper (which actually reads the video file from a USB stick) is the only program I am going to use, and it makes no difference if it is stopped. I have deleted the swapfile t...

Re: Disable swapfile in drive manager.

Maybe, but the question was, where can I set the swappines to 0 in drive-manager?

As I can see it, the only thing I am able to set is the size.

And as mentioned before, the goal is to make a headless device - so I would actually prefer a crash (and a restart) than a corrupted sd card.

Re: USB Automount

Actually I have just installed usbmount, and it works.

But it is necessary to change MountFlags=slave to MountFlags=shared in /lib/systemd/system/systemd-udevd.service

Disable swapfile in drive manager.

Hi. Under drive manager I can set the size of the swapfile, but I cannot select to disable it. Where can I set the value to 0, meaning disabled swapfile. I am going to make some headless video players (not connected to net), reading the video file from a USB stick. My goal is to make it as robust as...

Using same image on several Pi's

Hi. This might be a dumb question, but can I create a new DietPi installation, install some programs, and then reuse the image I have made on several other Pi's, without recreating the DietPi? Currently I am in the process of the first boot of a DietPi on a RP3+, and it takes quite a long time, but ...
