Re: Is there an elegant way to move from a 16GB SD card to a 200GB card?

Step 1 is to check your 200GB SD card is not a fake using h2testw or various other SD card testing tools before you go any further. Hopefully it's a good one, but it will save you a lot of grief to confirm this first. Once confirmed, the easiest way to copy your 16GB card is to use the SD Card Copi...

Re: How to setup VPN gateway/proxy on raspberry pi?

My Pi is setup as a VPN gateway/web proxy. I run WireGuard (OpenVPN is also no problem) and the Squid proxy server. Squid is setup to cache everything in memory to alleviate writes to the disk.

Re: Current State of Raspberry Pi 4 Software and Hardware Support

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B+ I have a feeling that an enhanced model of the Pi 4 could come out soon, due to previous problems with the temperature of Pi 4's CPU. Maybe it won't be called B+ (see: Raspberry Pi Zero versions), but you get the point. Do you think this is a silly thought, or might I be int...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 VPN Hotspot possible

Yup, no access point needed with wifi router (my router is actually just a firewall). If your router supports openVPN, you can also dispense with putting it on the Pi. If your router doesn't, you may be able to reflash it with Tomato or dd-wrt. I did this for a while before switching to the Pi.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 VPN Hotspot possible

I use a cheap access point I got used on Ebay. The access point is connected to the router, and the Pi is also connected to the router. The Pi runs a VPN client and the Squid proxy server. Then I configure the system with the wifi client to connect to the access point, and the browser (firefox) to u...

Re: SSD TRIM - the discard operation is not supported

The hdparm package contains a (somewhat risky) script, which on my system is here: /usr/share/doc/hdparm/wiper/wiper.sh.gz I've never had it fail, but I'd strongly advise backing up whatever disk you want to trim. You can run it on a live file system, but the author recommends running it on the unde...

Re: Which USB M2 Adapter for Raspberry Pi?

Thanks for the answers. I want to run the SSD on a Pi 3B+, which can boot from USB in principle. I know that the adapters only support SATA SSDs. But that's no problem, I want to use a WD Green SSD 120 GB, which offers SATA and is quite cheap. The reason for using a SSD is also not the speed. I wan...

Re: RPI4: Why is everything still 32-bit?

But there are some good things about systemd: sudo systemctl stop xxx sudo systemctl disable xxx :lol: sudo is a pestilence that needs to die. If you're going to do sysadmin tasks, do them as root. sudo just gets you into the habit of prefixing everything with it, which is much, much more dangerous...

Re: RPI4: Why is everything still 32-bit?

I'm curious, in which way does systemd not work. I could rant, but I won't. I have managed to get systemd into a state where it logged the fact that the logging service had crashed, logged the fact that it was going to restart it, logged the fact that it had restarted the logging service, and then ...

Maybe the swap file is too large. For test purposes, try reducing the size to 2 GB.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

Pi 4 works flawlessly when I can get it to boot, which is about one out of five tries. It gets far enough to respond to a ping, but not far enough to start sshd (so I can't see where it's gotten stuck). I use an external SSD connected to a USB 3 port for the root device. I've reflashed with the new...
