Re: What OS should I choose?

Hi all, I found an old RPI 1 model B that I have and tested the two OS below I hope it will help you as well I wonder if it remains after a day or even few hours. So far looks like the DietPi not bad.. I’ll update if any dramatic difference when IPsec is running (charon consume some of the memory n...

Re: How to Differentiate RPI4 - 1 vs. 2 vs. 4 GB ?

A bit stupid really that RAM size is not printed on the board, it's useful information and there is plenty of space for it.
The markings on the memory chip are hard to read and just a code, no indication of the size (unless you look up the type of course).
