Dietpi with Aarch64 Kernel works greate at my home server.
Yeah I have tested it, but the image is still way to big :(
Maybe Arch ARM?
I need something Stable for a set-and-forget project
@selea if you want raspbian, it'll be hard, but maybe buildroot already fits your needs.
This can shrink down image sizes to less than 10MB depending on your use case
Bookmarked! This might be the thing that I search for!
@selea If you can get persistent install of Alpine to work, it might be the smallest one.
Yeah I have thought about that too! It needs to be "kinda" persistent, with only a few prebuilt libs to be present
@selea By default, the rpi alpine install runs from RAM, so when you make a change, you have to commit it to the permanent storage. If you are going to store data there, you will have to create a persistent partition on the sd card and store the data there or try to install alpine it to disk like all normal distros, but I had some problems with it.
I'm not sure if tiny core has an arm image.
@selea Have you tried DietPi? It's command line only, but it's 141MB
I have, but the image itself is like a couple of hundreds of MB :/
@selea Ah, sorry. I've seen the compressed image size 😅
yeah that has tricked me alot! :D
@selea Alpine Linux is about 90 MB.
I need it semi-persistent
@selea Alpine is persistent?
Is it? I have only found non-persisent images for the rasperry pi 4
@selea The only thing that's different with Alpine is that it runs from the memory. If you want to save any changes you need to run a command.
That makes it non-persistent.
It does, since it runs for memory and changes is not automatically saved - non-persistent.
That is not true.
I can recommend alpine, it's absolutely wonderful and easy to work with!:)
I've tested the tutorial with Rpi2B.
