Hi,

GPU features (eg: Kodi, Desktop) are disabled on this board, the only boards we support for GPU are:
  • RPi (all)
  • Odroid (all)
Its mostly due to lack of stable driver/documentation for H3, and, with the H3 heat issues, GPU load ontop puts the CPU under excessive heat. Not recommended.

Thanks for the info :-D ! !

Kudos on the release of v144! Is it possible to wget the dietpi-update script and run it on an install with an empty Dietpi folder? My RPi is 1400 miles away so rebuilding the SD card just isn't possible...

Thanks

DietPi folder empty on XU4

Post by mike175de »

Hey there,

I run into a similar issue - only that I use an Odroid XU4.

After I did the upgrade to v145 and rebooted the device, the DietPi-folder is empty. Before that everything was fine and working for a few weeks now (v144).
I have to say that I switched (from point of installation DietPi) the system to an external usb-drive using the drive-manager.

So I unplugged my sdcard and changed the root partition back from the usb-drive to the sdcard in the boot.ini. After that I was able to access the device and the DietpI-folder (now on the sdcard) wasn't empty (as it should be and logically couldn't be).

Here are a few more infos:

Device I'm using Odroid Xu4
SdCard: Kingston 8GB
USB-Drive Transcend SDD 32gb TS32GSSD 370 connected via cloudshell
Software installed: webmin, samba, pihole
last command: dietpu-upgrade && reboot
PSU: official one of Odroid for the XU4

The not so useful ramlog cause it is the one generated using the sdcard as root-device ( the generated on on the usb-card isn't accessible):

Code: Select all

systemctl status dietpi-ramlog -l

When more infos are needed plz let me know.

Thx for your support!!

Just a (belated) report on my issues with OrangePi PC Plus and the DietPi folder.

I've reinstalled the available image (OrangePi PC) from the Download section, and immediately did an upgrade - it was upgraded to 144, and I haven't had any related problems since (almost a week). So, for me the "disappearing DietPi folder" issue is resolved.

Thanks Fourdee!

GoodRAM 16 GB UHS-I
/var/tmp/dietpi/logs/dietpi-ramlog.log: Read-only file system
I'am 100% certain this is due to the instability of the GoodRAM SD card. Please use a well branded/established SD card for stability, eg:
- Sandisk
- Samsung

@Fourdee

You were correct, I took my old Sandisk UHS 16GB and ... The result was the same...
But luckily I found and old image of v145 and writen it to both.
GoodRAM - no luck (No Ethernet controller found error)
Sandisk - It works!!!

So here, any idea why the new 6.0 image in the download section is causing issues no matter what SD Card is used?

EDIT>

NVM, tried yet another SD, v160 went on without problems with missing Folder.
However, now I am facing an issue with NTPD: Waiting for completion of time sync (7/30) and so on untill 30/30.
