Re: Kernel Messages (Errors?)

@helmholtz Which specific solution worked? I just upgraded from kernel 4.4.35-v7+ to 4.9.29-v7+ and I'm seeing these issues for the first time.

Re: [HOW TO] Use your RPI as a DNS server and speed up yo' n

I did a bit more reading , and I'm not sure if that's entirely correct either. It seems that the Rpi in this configuration could act as a (distributed) "recursive and caching name server". However, there do exist "authoritative name servers", which (in my interpretation) contain the full list. This ...

Sorry, I think you misunderstand. I'm agreeing that it wouldn't save much space.

I have quite a lot of bandwidth to burn, but I'm more interested in the advantages that I mention later in my previous post.

Re: [HOW TO] Use your RPI as a DNS server and speed up yo' n

I'd be interested in a fully-functional DNS server at home if it were possible. This would not be to save megabytes downloaded; hence, I'd (probably) have no issues with regularly synchronising a full DNS list. Having said that, I have no idea how large such a file would be. The advantages for me ar...

Re: [HOW TO] Use your RPI as a DNS server and speed up yo' n

I'm not sure I understand fully, but doesn't dnsmasq only really speed up a small number of cached entries , and not pull a complete DNS list from an upstream source? Hence, if you query a new hostname, then there would be no speed increase? However, from your testing, it seems that it does seem to ...

Re: How to set up the Raspberry Pi as an NFS server

@Joe Schmoe, are you talking to me or to Liquidant?

If me, then NFS is faster and less resource-intensive than samba. Hence my intended audience is anyone who wants better speed and less resource drain! :shock:

(However, I'm not sure how well Windows works with NFS.)

Re: Debian packages for xbmc-rbp

Thanks Beini, I've tried about 3 other ways to install XBMC on my Pi, and yours is the first that worked! Thanks very much for posting this!

How to set up the Raspberry Pi as an NFS server

After struggling for a few days on how to set up the Raspberry Pi as a NFS server (without Kerberos), I've finally worked it out. This information has been cobbled from here , the forums, and hours of Googling, but I'm putting this together in one location so that people can access it easily. I'm al...
