Re: System freezes with flash drive access

If the system has trouble reading or writing data to disk, you should get a trace of that in /var/log/syslog.
A problem with the storage media is a likely cause, testing with an other USB drive could test this hypothesis.

Right. So here it’s not the SD.
You say cpu load is fine. According to “top”, how much cpu does the openvpn process take, approximately?

Re: Can't get watchdog package to mail or log

Mhh. Browsing the web reading Debian man pages and a few other sites, I think now the watchdog daemon only logs to syslog, but “naturally” you can configure syslog to write to a separate file. The log-dir stanza looks like a directory where the stdout/stderr of test- and repair- binaries only can be...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

It might be worth repeating that speedtest essentially tests your ISP network: how well you are connected to it, how well it is connected to the rest of the world. The test, AFAIK, downloads/uploads data from files. In the case of a Pi running off an SD, performance would then normally hover around ...

Re: Pi4/Buster router performance

I don’t have a pi4, sorry (and sad). Did you try bridging the interfaces and see how fast (UDP, preferably) transfers go? If you get a result in the 800mbps range then I would try UDP, routed, without masquerading (with static routes to the pi4 router) If you get a result in the 600mbps range then I...

Re: Pi Wi-Fi access point with FTP site running in a self-contained network.

The guide specifies 3 commands:

The error you report could suggest you missed the "unmask" or perhaps "enable" ones?

Re: Access point tutorial missing information about bridging?

I dont think that would be relevant, your device requires the use of a router behind it. (Could be the Pi itself, but in routed setup).
The documentation states clearly the bridge is designed to sit within a LAN, in other words, behind a router.

Re: Set "wait for network before reboot" and then switched off wifi

I don't have the answer to that.

But if you have init=/bin/sh in cmdline.txt and the system does not start a shell, the SD (the system installed on it) is useless.
Consider reinstalling following well documented or "official" procedures, you will probably save much time.

I removed the ip address from the cmdline.txt What in the world made you add an ip address parameter in cmdline.txt?

General comments, as I don't know Fedora. If you do not have any "master" interface besides br0, i.e. in addition to the eth0 and wlan0 bridge members, this machine is not routing anything, it is only a bridge. In which case ip_forwarding and NAT are irrelevant. Excessive firewalling of traffic to/f...

Yes the built-in audio device reports as mono. Specify 2 channels (e.g. aplay -c 2 ... ) and you do get stereo.
