Re: Biggest problem with PIs

It’s down to the sd card using a FAT fs for booting which is super fragile, and most standard Linux having everything on an ext4 read/write partition. With some hackery putting most of the log files, tmp files etc in ram and mounting / read only I run my pi boat computer with a read only fs with no problems for nearly 4 years now, and have done similar for bananapis. But yes, in general this is why standard raspberry pi’s are *not* a good idea for grown up signage systems. Emmc is good, but you still want to run on a read only file system.
