Is there a date for the final?
Beta. Final when all software titles are functional (eg: kodi outstanding):

Hehe, :)

When we use the word "Alpha", its probably more stable than "Release", abused by most Xbox/PS games. We're "old school" ;)

Installation of motioneye fails.

Code: Select all

E: Unable to locate package libx264-142
E: Package 'libavcodec56' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'libavformat56' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'libmysqlclient18' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package libswscale3
 [Failed] The apt cache may be corrupt, apt mirror offline, or you have held broken packages. DietPi-Software will now exit.
It searchs for "libx264-142", but available is "libx264-148" or "libx264".
And "libavcodec56" should be "libavcodec57" i think (same for "libavformat").
"libmysqlclient18" -> ???
"libswscale3" -> ???

Hi,

Thanks a lot for DietPi first. It's a really nice piece of code to make my Rpi3 smooth and fast.

I'm ready to test a lot to improve DietPi.

MotionEye seems to be fixed now! Great job! 8-)
But sorry i found other bugs... :?
The WiFi is buggy.
1. If you change the wifi settings and press "apply", it does not work and shows an error "invalid argument" (see picture, this is the WiFi-Key).
But after a restart it works.
2. If the WiFi connection is lost, it does not reconnect. So far so good. For this there is the option "Auto Reconnect".
But after selecting this, the WiFi is not able to connect anymore at all! Sometimes on reboot you have WiFi for a short time, but then it drops.

Can someone confirm this bugs?
