I'm trying to install ownCloud on an Raspberry Pi 4 using DietPi but don't have the option, it just shows other cloud-solutions like NextCloud.

Am I missing something? Is this worked on or has DietPi transitioned away from ownCloud?

It is still on the software-list and I can't find anything about which platforms should support which software.

hey hey , I just finished a new dietpi img (always debian buster arm64, but imaged from a 1Gb usb key !!!)
(strange that the previous link for the pure debian doesn't work, when i click on it in my post the download is starting normally..)

EDIT : Fresh link !!

* 100% working on the RPi 4, should also work on the 3b+ and maybe 3b.
* Wifi, serial.. working out of the box, bluetooth needs a manual hciattach ( hciattach /dev/AMA0 bcm43xx 3000000 flow ),
* 1Gb sdcard/usb key compatible .img (dietpi will expand at first boot)
* Official arm64 kernel (aka kernel8) from the raspberry github
* Created with the debian bootstrap + chroot process (before the dietpi PREP script)
* Mate desktop tested without any issue (as long as I don't activate the DRM VC4 V3D driver on top of the dispmanx display stack (dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d & max_framebuffers=2 options in config.txt, leading to a black screen with only the mouse pointer viewable).
* 512Gb of ram allocated to the GPU (I have a 4Gb rpi), you can reduce this (32, 64, 128, 256) by editing the /boot/config.txt
* Even if you can see other kernels on the BOOT (fat32) partition, they should not be used (their related modules aren't present in the system, so no wifi and others kernel modules related functions, I had to remove them to get enough place to "work" with the PREP script, and even if after the dietpi cleanup they could fit in the place, this img is for exploiting a 64bit os.. you already have the official dietpi for 32bit !!)

I really recommend to anyone who d'like to use a desktop environment to put few $/€ into a SSD with a usb3.0 (small 32/64Gb SSD are really cheap now), you will never want to boot to the the sdcard again after that !! (and you flash and and verify your prefered .img and 10x less time !!!)

@ThAnEb,

Image runs smooth..

cpu 7,3 sec
cpu temp 32 C /41 C (fan)
RootFS (SD) 22/34 MiB/s
RAM 426 / 1258 MiB/s

Will check how homeassistant performs..

I tried to make the Pi4 boot from ssd using this instruction. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/boot- ... 39782.html

It didn't work. blue led is flashing on the usb3 to sata adapter but doesn't stop.

Wrong adapter?

Please try it with a fresh image. Use Rufus (in case you use a Windows system) to flash the image in dd mode to SSD directly. The new Rufus version allows to select an USB attached SSD or HDD as well, not just SDcards and USB flash drives.

I would unplug the SDcard then and plug USB drive only. Then plug power/boot. Our fstab and cmdline.txt entries contain the PARTUUID of the partitions as mount sources, so it should work without changing anything, compared to /dev/mmcblk0p1|2 like entries, like mentioned in the guide, since PARTUUIDs should be applied to the SSD partitions as well when flashing.

Have a screen attached, so you see the exact error or last output in case it does not work, so we can see what is required additionally.

Ah yeah, they dropped HDMI port :(. I still do not understand the step with dual HDMI, I mean how many users use an SBC for regular desktop work, and then even some kinda work where you need two screens? However OOT :D.

will report back when i can attach a screen. What i noticed however is that IF there is no SD card attached, no power is send to the usb-port (lights on the usb2sata adapter don't light up) I am still wondering if my adapter isn't the problem. Will test with a usb-stick as wel..

ps: same thing, a usb3-stick is not detected/activated at boot (in a usb3 port on the pi4)

Found the answer myself:

How long after the release of ownCloud 10.03 can we expect a working version on DietPi?
