Recent project: setting up #pihole on dedicated hardware.
I wasn't happy with the complications that arose from running pihole in #docker on my home server, so I wanted dedicated appliances. I decided to use a #raspi and a PC Engines APU that was my former home router.
#Debian is straight-up HARD to install on something without a graphics card. CentOS makes this easy, but...
Debian required me to fiddle with syslinux AND grub, in the installer and installed system respectively, to get a functional system on a serial console. Why?!
At least I now have two functional pihole hosts, but that was far harder than it had to be. A few extra options enabled in the installer and grub would have saved me hours of research and trial & error.
