Is a raspberry pi 1 good enough for a pihole server? : pihole

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/10

Many people use it that way. Which means I can put it on an old Raspberry Pi B+ revision 1.2 board (which Wikipedia indicates as the B 1+ in the Specifications table but as Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ revision 1.2 in the schematics of connectors).

I might consider DietPi as distribution (which is Debian based) as it is even ligher.

See [WayBackhttps://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comments/6h39zr/is_a_raspberry_pi_1_good_enough_for_a_pihole/#divw0i5

One more note: I need to check out which Debian base name (which indicates the version) works best as there seemed to be a dnsmasq issue (not archived because discourse hatesdislikes the WayBack machine and Archive.is):

Like Apple, Android and Delphi, they use name based versions of which I always forget the order of. Luckily the source of the below table gets updated over time [2017 Archive.is2018 Archive.is] Debian releases and names – Electric Toolbox Debian releases are named after characters from Toy Story and are frequently referred to with the name rather than the version.:

Version Code name Release date Toy Story character
1.1 Buzz 1996-06-17 Buzz Lightyear
1.2 Rex 1996-12-12 Rex (the T-Rex)
1.3 Bo 1997-06-05 Bo Peep
2.0 Hamm 1998-07-24 Hamm (the pig)
2.1 Slink 1999-03-09 Slinky Dog
2.2 Potato 2000-08-15 Mr Potato Head
3.0 Woody 2002-07-19 Woody the cowboy
3.1 Sarge 2005-06-06 Sarge from the Bucket O’ Soldiers
4.0 Etch 2007-04-08 Etch, the Etch-A-Sketch
5.0 Lenny 2009-02-14 Lenny, the binoculars
6.0 Squeeze 2011-02-06 Squeeze toy aliens
7 Wheezy 2013-05-04 Wheezy the penguin
8 Jessie 2015-04-26 Jessie the cowgirl
9 Stretch 2017-06-17 Rubber octopus from Toy Story 3
10 Buster not yet released Andy’s pet dog
11 Bullseye Not yet released Woody’s horse
Sid “unstable” The next door neighbour

Git repository with fixed binaries for Tumbleweed on Raspberry Pi 3 – Bug 1084419 – Glibc update to 2.27 causes segfault during name resolution

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/08

OSC downloads for [archive.is] https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1084812

The binaries provided by Stefan Brüns, together with installation instructions are now in a git repository at [WayBack] wiert.me/public/linux/opensuse/tumbleweed/aarch64 a.k.a. arm64/1084182-fix-osc-binaries · GitLab.

Follow the steps in Applying the fixes on a broken system to at least temporarily get your system to work (a new zypper dist-upgrade might fail, so be careful with that).
