OK, Plex seems to be working on the #RaspberryPi, I can stream a song to my phone and it’s scanning the massive local music folder.

But this whole having to log into a cloud account in order to use my local media server with my own purchased (or free) media thing is kind of skeevy.

Thinking once I’ve experimented a bit more I’ll try Jellyfin & compare them

Also, setting up Plex on a headless box is a pain, because you can only configure the server on a connection *on localhost*, and you can bet it doesn’t work with Lynx. Official solution is to set up an SSH tunnel from whatever device you’re actually running your browser on.

Put Folding@Home on my desktop. It’s using too much power. Can I put it on my Raspberry Pi?…

  1. Put Folding@Home on my desktop.
  2. It’s using too much power.
  3. Can I put it on my #RaspberryPi 3B?
  4. The software is 64-bit. The OS on there right now is 32-bit.
  5. Specs show the 3B has a 64-bit processor.
  6. /proc/cpuinfo shows it has a 32-bit processor.
  7. Specs show it should have BCM2837
  8. /proc/cpuinfo shows it has BCM2835
  9. Magnifying glass shows BCM2837 stamped on the chip.

WTF?

Turns out all Pi chips appear as 2835 in the kernel?!?!?
