Re: Raspbian KDE Build

In Raspbian full (you know, with the desktop and stuff), when you first boot up, a windows pops up, and guides you through the setting up process (change password, update, etc).

Re: Can't install isc-dhcp-server

Looks like isc-dhcp-server is installed, but not configured. That's the normal state after a clean installation. You'll need to edit /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server to specify which network interfaces should be used by the server, the last 2 lines of the file. Here are the relevant lines from my system...

Why are you telling Apache to listen on ports 7000 and 5050? You said that 7000 was a socket server, and 5050 was a Camera stream server. Those aren't really inbound web pages, based on your explanation. Have you tried commenting out the Listens for those two ports, and the VirtualHosts for them and...

Re: Slow network speed over WAN

One way to solve this would be to have split DNS name configurations. External systems (not on your local LAN) would get a DNS name from an external DNS definition, and you'd also have a DNS server on your LAN that provided LAN-local DNS resolutions. For instance, an internet DNS server (which you c...

Rather than using vncserver to start VNC, you may be able to start it as a systemd service. Not sure about RealVNC, but tightvnc and tigervnc servers can be started this way. see https://github.com/gitbls/RPiVNCHowTo for docs on one way to accomplish this.

Re: No subnet declaration for eth0. Setting up DHCP server.

I bet the sleep you tried adding went actually in the wrong direction. Try delaying the server, not the client. The client sets a static IP address on the interface used by the server. The server will not start if its listening interface doesn’t have an IP address. epoch1970 nailed it. Your log sho...
