Grafana in kiosk mode on Pi Zero W

Per my earlier post, I’ve been using a Pi Zero W with Chromium in a kiosk mode to display Grafana on a TV. Not sure if something changed with Chromium in the December 2020 release, but it wasn’t working when I tried to do a rebuild. So, I found an alternative and I’ve been having […]

Setting up k3s on a single RPi4

Testing out the ability to run some containers on RPi4 and I have a single borrowed device. Most of the tutorials out there describe a multi-node configuration and that’s led to some challenges for me to understand this. First, I started with this tutorial: https://github.com/mhausenblas/kube-rpi This gets you there most of the way, but I […]

The RPi Zero W is…ok…

First of all, I have not returned to using the Chromecast for my Grafana visualization. I didn’t elaborate on this, but my previous post was driven by a change to Grafana visualization that effectively broke the ChromeCast Kiosk server I was using. The recommended solution was to use a proxy for displaying the iFrame, or […]

OpenVAS on the Raspberry Pi 4 works really well!

I’ve been trying to set up OpenVAS on a tiny PC like the RPi lately. Based on this post: https://dayne.broderson.org/2018/05/24/RPi_Vulnerability_Scanner.html I wasn’t expecting much success. And that’s what I found. It wasn’t really usable. I saw the TinkerBoard and the extra performance and RPi compatibility and thought that might be a good thing to try. […]

Raspberry Pi Zero W headless setup

There seems to be conflicting info out there for how to accomplish this.  Compounded with the Zero’s different micro ports, it’s easier if you can set it up as a headless device.  Unfortunately, I found that if you try to do this locally, with a monitor and keyboard, the order of operations causes the ssh […]

RN-XV, Arduino and funny characters

No, I’m not talking about myself. I’ve embarked on an ambitious project that is sure to never get completed. On my way there I’m working on getting an RN-XV “cheap” WiFi adapter talking to an Arduino. I’ve had all kinds of issues getting it connected and it all comes down to spaces. I’ll have more […]
