for raspbian10/debian10 why not use zram-tools which is found in official repositories rather than zram-config ?

https://packages.debian.org/buster/zram-tools
Anything to report on trying both options if you have?

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

I've noticed that kodi (on a pi2b) seems to require a fair bit of gpu mem for decoding h265 but does it well (!!) nowadays. Is there some way I can control the split so that I have more ram in "desktop mode" and more gpu memory in "kodi mode" ? thanks for any suggestions. I'm actually experimenting...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Hi

I'm dual booting libreelec and raspbian full, and I want to have a different GPU split depending on whether I'm in libreelec or raspbian. Is it possible to do this with PINN?

thanks

Re: Update download speeds slow B/s

Did you get this sorted out? I'm getting crap d/l speeds for updating as well although not quite as bad as you are.
Running a speedtest on the pi shows it can d/l at 30 Mbs.

EDIT: I changed mirrors manually in sources.list and now my updates are happening in seconds not hours.

There are a lot of threads about "automounting" in the forum, beware that half of them relate in fact to some USB/udev daemon that mounts USB devices when you plug them in.

Re: Rpi4 w/ several USB harddrives idle spindown

Solution 1: Use the automounter and let the firmware in the drives do their job when the drives are unmounted and idle for a while. Solution 2: fliddling with hdparm, sdparm, ext4 settings, etc. Are you suggesting manually unmounting when I am done? Because this drive will be accessed over the netw...

Re: iptables not saving after reboot

The “pre-up” bit is a keyword valid only in /etc/network/interfaces. Since the use of that file is deprecated, do not concern yourself with it. You can add command “iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.rules” in file /etc/rc.local to get the iptables rules restored at boot time. Thank you that suggesti...

This isn't working for me, could you confirm? I can do iptables-restore < /etc/network/iptables.rules and that works.
