Re: SSD error on DietPi but working with Raspbian

The drive doesn't have SMART capability. It's an SSD, here's what I got with Raspbian: root@Pi4:/home/pi# smartctl -i -d scsi /dev/sda smartctl 6.6 2017-11-05 r4594 [armv7l-linux-4.19.118-v7l+] (local build) Copyright (C) 2002-17, Bruce Allen, Christian Franke, www.smartmontools.org === START OF INF...

SSD error on DietPi but working with Raspbian

hi DietPi devs, I have a serious problem that prevents me from using DietPi, and that I really don't understand. I have a 1TB SSD that I want to use for storage. When I plug it in with DietPi 6.30, I get an error and it doesn't work: [ 116.125639] usb 2-2: new SuperSpeed Gen 1 USB device number 2 us...

Re: Pi4: DietPi on sole external SSD

It was a fresh install directly from USB (no SD card used).

After the initial config, yes, it asked for a reboot, and that's when some files were changed on the HD.

Re: Pi4: DietPi on sole external SSD

Just a word of caution to people trying this. I have tried it this morning and managed to boot from a 1TB HD. The initial resize2fs took quite some time (5 minutes?), but afterwards DietPi booted up just fine (v6.3). The problem came later when I configured DietPi with root access. I tried to instal...

Re: Pi4: DietPi on sole external SSD

Thank you for that quick reply and useful links.

So I guess the big question is: will DietPi be updated when the final EEPROM comes out? (new version of Raspbian I suppose)?

Pi4: DietPi on sole external SSD

hi everyone,

Is it now possible to run DietPi on a single SSD drive attached to USB (ie: without a microSD card) of a Raspberry Pi 4? How?

Re: fail2ban for dropbear

So, it was my error. Everything works out of the box (ie: immediately installing fail2ban after a fresh DietPi install). It must have been another program that needed Python2 that screwed up the system. I am going to check every new package that I install from now on. Thanks again for the quick reply!

Re: fail2ban for dropbear

Thank you Joulinar for your quick reply.

Maybe I messed up something on my system? I will try to reinstall the image again fresh and test fail2ban immediately after that and report back.

fail2ban for dropbear

Hi, I'm new at using DietPi and have version 6.3. I added the fail2ban software from dietpi-software because I wanted to monitor my open SSH port (22) with the default dropbear server. When I check /var/log/fail2ban.log I get the following error: fail2ban.jail [1007]: ERROR Backend 'systemd' failed ...
