Re: STICKY: Raspberry Pi OS (64 bit) beta test version feedback

Is it OK to use 64 bit as a headless server, I am going to use SMB and OwnCloud only. I presume you are going to administer the server via SSH. The only thing to remember is that SSH is not enabled by default. You need to do the /boot trick or link it to a keyboard/monitor and enable SSH via raspi-...

Re: Raspi 4 8GB with Random Freeze

What actually freezes? I, and others here, have had a characteristic freeze which, to my knowledge, has not been properly diagnosed. That is because no logs are recorded, So if your logs show nothing you may share the same problem. There are no logs because the RPI 'loses' the USB disk. That is noth...

Re: Unable to make raspberry pi publicly accessible

Have you checked that port 80 is locally available and serving something? If your server has a GUI/browser what is the result of http://localhost. If not you can test it from anything else on your LAN using your static address - typically like http://192.168.x.y or http://10.0.x.y. If you can't acce...

Not only is buster 64bit lite stable imho - but a firm base to upgrade to bullseye (by changing repos) and add the GUI of your choice. Anything video-ish may not run as smoothly as stock and it's not production ready yet - but it has much else to offer the adventurous. Oh, and buy some time for the ...

It will then work at any hotspot. And use cloudflare free to host the dns so you can change it almost instanty when you cha...

You don't need to have a domain or trouble DNS if you know the router's external IP and prepared to load your website as http:://100.200.0.1 or whatever. You can check it on various 'whatsmyip' websites. If your ISP supplies a static IP all you then have to do is the port forwarding as above. If it'...

Yes Windows can be difficult. You should be able to boot your PC from a Live Linux external disk/USB (BIOS settings alert!) without touching your Windows disk. Then you may be able to access your RPi ext4 filesystem.
