Re: Pi4: DietPi on sole external SSD

Oh - I was under the impression its out of Beta status as when you switch the config to 'stable' its installable.

Re: Pi4: DietPi on sole external SSD

Now that this boot from USB firmware is official and stable, is it safe to use with DietPi 6.3 to avoid the problems discussed above?

Re: Slow Pi3 B+ NAS after HDD Upgrade

NTFS is slow on Pi’s. Do you have to use it? Try EXT4 instead. Much faster.

Thank you for DietPi

Just wanted to say thank you for DietPi. As someone who's intermediate at best with Linux and SBCs in general, its made everything so much more accessible.

Re: Install Raspbian Pixel Desktop on Dietpi

Install Raspbian Pixel Desktop on Dietpi

Hi everyone. My Google-Fu has failed me. I use a Pi4 as a Citrix Thin Client. Being the beginner Linux noob that I am, I've found that Rasbian's Pixel desktop was the most user friendly GUI to get up and running and use. After some certificate challenges, I was able to install the Citrix Workspace A...

Re: Stopping qbittorrent enables Nextcloud maintenance mode

Yep, that works without putting Nextcloud into MM.

Would I be likely to run into Dietpi issues if I stop services in this way?

Stopping qbittorrent enables Nextcloud maintenance mode

If I run

Code: Select all

 dietpie services stop qbittorent
Nextcloud is put into maintenance mode.

Is this expected behaviour? If so, why?
