Re: Stretch won't connect to hidden SSID (I've searched high and low)

Remove everything you added to /etc/network/interfaces. Everything. Insert configuration in files /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and in /etc/dhcpcd.conf The current official documentation about network configuration is still relevant for Stretch, Buster introduced no changes. Jessie and Str...

Mon avis: je ne mets pas les doigts dans PA ni dans sox. Tous les deux très sophistiqués/compliqués, et pour faire simple, incompatibles. L'avantage d'utiliser l'image fournie par le projet est que pour un Pi du modèle qu'ils utilisent, tout devrait marcher "direct". Et tu peux suivre leur doc, s'il...

Re: external drive is mounting and unmounting

Openelec, I have no clue.
But I agree, it does seem to like to Samba a little too much.
You can try "dmesg", if there are power events you should see them there I think.
Finding the system log would really be useful... If it is a systemd OS, try journalctl?

Re: Cool project looking for OTA software update and remote ssh (behind firewall) solution

Looks like there is no platform that has software update ability + remote ssh feature in one place... Depends on what you run on your platform, and on the level of control you have over the network (incl. firewalls and NAT). Also, SSH (or VPN) access is not always desirable. Imagine I place machine...

Re: standard PSU vs PoE HAT

Reliability should not be a problem, PoE is a datacenter/"IT pro" thing. Regarding noise I can't comment but in general it is not a primary concern in a datacenter... You need a switch capable of delivering power over the ethernet cable, if your current switch is not 802.3af compliant, you'll need o...

Congratulations.
If you were using a Windows Desktop, I would have said "keep it".
If you are already capable of managing without Windows, then I say "sell it".
Pi is certainly one of the best linux platforms available out there, regardless of price.

Re: Setting up network bridge under Buster

Well, what you added to dhcpcd.conf affects wlan0, for sure. If you did not block dhcpcd from taking care of eth0 -among others-, it will. That is its default behavior: fetch an address via DHCP for any unconfigured interface that comes up. Add "denyinterfaces eth1 wlan1 usb0 ..." to the beginning o...

a collection of NFS servers and a well-defined names domain.
What does this mean?
That you can structure your domain name to abstract the details of which server exports what. Eg nfs://homes.nfs.mydomain/exports/foo points to the server that exports /home/foo, which is really node-15.mydomain.

Re: Problems exporting an NFS share

Reexporting NFS is a bad idea. Known to cause loss of hair and data. NFS was designed for the LAN. The network is expected to be reliable (and fast), the server is expected to be reliable. The only volatile part the design supports is clients. In complex NFS environments, clients would use an automo...

Re: Pi 4 router / DHCP server - AmazonBasics Ethernet USB 3.0 good?

Does your switch support VLANs? If yes, you don’t need a second adapter. Just create eth0.1234 to handle the WAN in addition to the regular eth0 you can use for LAN. For physical devices what counts on Linux is the chip they are based on. In the customer testimony section I quickly found a comment b...

I think what you’re looking for is an overlay network and the ability to execute an arbitrary payload (!) in a secure (?) environment. That is not the typical definition of an OTA system. Overlay network is a fancy name for VPN. There are things like dataplicity (cited in the official RPF docs ) and...

Re: Unable to use two WiFi interfaces, one as a hotspot, one as a client

Probably an aside, but do remove bind-interfaces from dnsmasq.conf
It fails on systemd at boot time
I trust you’re not running multiple dns or dhcp servers on one machine so you don’t need it.
Should you actually need it, there is a bind-dynamic option that is expected to work under systemd.
