UNSOLVED Pi Zero as MagicMirror Client
I found an old Pi Zero (not the Pi Zero 2) and wanted to use it as a client for a MagicMirror. The server is running fine. I can access the MM from another computer.
Now, I started the the Pi Zero (bullseye with desktop) and called the MM page in chromium. However, it is too slow: the page is not completely loaded, the clock is not running smoothly.
Does anyone know of a better solution (browser options, another browser, less resource usage, …) on a Pi Zero?
@Jan-0 increase the swap space
@sdetweil Thanks for the hint. That improved the situation a lot but it is still not sufficient. I have different pages rotating every 10 seconds and I guess that’s too resource consuming. The CPU is 100 % used now.
Perhaps, I need to wait until the PI Zero 2 is available again (at a reasonable price).
@Jan-0 yes redraw lots of pages is pretty taxing…
you could try one of the other browsers.
firefox, midori, puffin
Try using FullPageOS
It works fine on a pi zero.
