Re: So what happens next with Bullseye 64bit

My Pi3B+ is also Bullseye 64bit and is also headless with only a LAMP stack and TVHeadend installed - along with TVHeadend it's my web server. Are you running lite or full on your 3B+? I'm running full on a 3B, with no additions. It runs fine but won't let me update/upgrade. I get the error The fol...

So what happens next with Bullseye 64bit

OK so I'm very happily running Bullseye 64bit on my Pi-400 and a 1GB Pi 4 Samba/NFS server with about 8TB of spinning rust RAID 5. As we all know Bullseye 64bit is currently still in Beta. The question is what happens when it moves to "prime time" ? Will the standard "sudo apt update ...

There were USB to SCSI adapters but nobody has made them in 20 years so expect them to be hard to find and expensive.

Re: Does RPi 400 support (officially or not) 64bit BullsEye?

You can download and install the 32-bit Buster version of tvheadend and use it with 32-bit Bullseye. I just tested it on a Pi Zero. I couldn't fully test because I don't have a TV source on that Pi, but it installed and the HTTP interface worked. What I did on a Pi Zero using the current Bullseye L...

Hi all, Some time over the last couple of days TVHeadend appears to have gone missing. My TVHeadend Pi suffered a corrupt and unsalvageable SD card. No problem as TVheadend, ftp and telnet are the only things on it. I made a new "Lite" card and did the usual - sudo apt update && su...

OK problem is now resolved. After I dragged my Pi 3B+ out of the shed and put the SD card in it it all worked perfectly so I figured a bit more investigation was in order.

Any chance your DHCP server had already assigned .165 to something else?
No. The DHCP server starts at 192.168.0.2 and stops at 192.168.0.155.
