On the download site, I don't see a version 5.8.64, only a 5.8.62 from Aug. '19. Has the .64 version been pulled back?
:shock: vermute mal er fix die shutdown geschicht, die ist nämlich auch ein wenig verbuggt :?

5.8.64 is still here: http://wtware.com/files/
It runs on Pi4 and sees 4 Gig RAM. But it fails using USB on older Pis.

That's why we don't port WTware to other ARMs: Linux kernel quality for ARMs is low. Even on Raspberry with better kernel support than others.

We have single Linux kernel for thousands of x86 machines produced by different manufactures for tens of years.

But we can not run single kernel on Pi3+ and Pi4. The same manufacturer, similar processors. And USB driver that brakes if we turn on high memory to access 4Gig on Pi4. On Raspbian there are three kernels on boot SD: kernel.img (for older than Pi2), kernel7.img for Pi2-Pi3+ and kernel7l.img for Pi4.

We'll do it the same way and new version will appear in a few days.

I'am testing RASP 4 with WTW. But die rasp mentioned at startup, that there is no configuration file at the WTW Server.
At the server system i can see the client and all the settings.
Whats going wrong?

OK, i check the log files. The Raspi is using the wrong TFTP Server. It's the second DNS Server in our network.
How can I configure the Windows DHCP server for the RASPI to use the right TFTP server?

TFTP server is 066 DHCP option. Enter IP address here, not "name"!
