First of all sorry if Im asking something obvious but Im completly new to Chirpstack, but im 100% looking forward to have it working
My understanding is that I can use any commercial LoraWAN device in the market + commercial gateway (like Dragino LPS-8) and a Network Server on some laptop or computer.
Trying to find an option for NS, I though of a Rasp-PI for it. I guess I can install it all manually with docker, docker-composer, etc… from scratch, but I was trying to find a pre-made image, assuming that I’m not the first one doing this
I could not find an image for this but I found many other images for gateways and other derived options for Rasp-PI.
Am I looking at the wrong place, or isn’t there any pre-built image for Chirp-Stack for R-PI out there?
Ah ok, it looks like I read it too fast. I read something about gateway so I thought it would be only for that.
It looks like it is a multipurpose distribution that I can pick only the NS funcionality, right?
Also, now that it all clears up. Im looking for options to buy the board. I see there are images for all versiones of rasp-PI (2,3,4…). Prices for these boards increase as well along with versions.
Is it worth to get a RPI4B? Or will it work fast enough on al older version? What about RAM?
Can you suggest a reasonable r-pi version and ram size for a good testing board?
