I’ve got a spare NUC. Fully appreciate that’s it’s a bit of overkill (I have my 3B running but a card failed). How would I go about getting the base setup going? Pm2 autoboot, base install, what OS?
@yk pick any linux, and then use my install script.
Thanks Sam. The 3B has been running fine for years. Now that the card failed I’m tempted to go the server > client route. So the NUC would run Debian, kick off your scripts, it runs in server mode, I do all of the normal setup that I did previously on the pi? How does the client setup work once I replace the failed card?
And, be honest, is this overkill? Once a new card comes in I can redo the setup on the 3B.
Server seems doable. With the NUC it’ll have a bit more horsepower to run my iCloud sync and Weather setups (nothing overly painful to be honest).
Does the client 3B also run MM then? Meaning run your install scripts but instead update mm.sh to run client?
I fear I’m making the setup overly complex (only satisfying my tinkering needs). Would you agree or have you found that a server > client setup works better? (curious of opinion)
@yk never used client mode. but yes, same approach
client/full needs desktop to run browser
