Re: Image File Utilities

Just sudo ./ image-backup will work too, and it goes interactive and asks you file name to save as/ size/extra space etc

I never use the options , I just do as I posted above

Re: Static IP address of Desktop Buster

Then you are doing something wrong. I have 12 (which are admittedly outside the range handled by DHCP) which have been working for years. That would not be a surprise. it was actually the TIP10RF device which started all this off. The Pii Address reservation seems to be OK, all the years (since 201...

Re: Static IP address of Desktop Buster

If you want a PREDICTABLE IP Address I suggest you avoid static. The preferred option is to reserve on your DHCP server. It often takes a while for addresses to settle if they have changed. I never found just reserved address reservation that reliable. maybe a lot of my issues have been being in to...

Re: Remove unneeded processes

Journald/rsyslogd don't do enough to worry about it, they're mostly invisible, you can't debug failures without some sort of logging. Dhcpcd/dhcpcd5 means you don't have to muck about with fixed IP addresses on your RPi, you can do that all on your home router. The cost of not using it is higher th...

So start with RaspiOS Lite and 90% of the stuff you don't need won't be there (in just the way that my ADS-B SDR works with a minimal install).

this is what i have started with ..but there is still a to of 'background noise' clutter..

Yes’, after I saw this, that is exactly what I did do,
Just seems pretty bad/ off when the WebGUI itself fills that entry in that format, causing this to happen in the first place
