Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

.....and it worked !! Thanks !!

Downloaded from the link in the first message on this thread, loaded onto a USB key. Power down then powered up pressing the B3 button and the B3 wiped this disk and installed Stretch. Took 1-2 minutes.

Thanks for your help ! :-)

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

Thanks ! Here you go with the install.ini - I tried a couple of edits of the final block in [GENERAL] but nothing made a difference, also tried specifying a location for the image. This is just what was download as in the zip-file of the original link. The 'install' directory placed in the root of t...

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

Still the same problem after formatting and unzipping the file on my B3. I have not changed the install.ini file at all ! But just checking, am I supposed to un-comment any of the lines or specify where the image is located ? Also, typically, how long does an upgrade take ? (I currently get 6 x quic...

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

Good point ! I actually downloaded/installed on Linux, but used a GUI "wordpad"? tool to edit the file. I will try again using 'vi' or nano.

Actually, doing this on the B3 may be the wisest choice. :-)

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

I will when I am home, but it was just the default install.ini except that I had un-commented "wipe = false" so that only the first partition would be formatted. I didn't make any other changes.

Bubba Backup not working...

Arrrgg !!! I have been trying all weekend to get the PHP Bubba backup function in the UI working but with no luck. I have a USB stick in the back of my B3 which mounts OK, but when I try to create a new backup job in the Web Interface, it is never created. If I try to create a new job with the same ...

Re: Problems with RPC ports for NFS

Perfect ! Thanks ! It may be that by Bubba thinks it's acting as a router, strangely when I just now attempted to login to admin to check, I got the message - "Admin user not allowed to login on WAN interface. Please read the users manual for advice. " ...which is strange as it allowed me to do this...

Re: Excito is hiring!

Sounds interesting ! I got Owncloud up and running on my B3, but the Android app is currently very flakey. Marketing the B3 as your own, secure cloud could be a great idea !

Re: Problems with RPC ports for NFS

In fact, has anyone any ideas why 'iptables' is running on the B3 at all ? I am not using my B3 as a router and it is sat behind my ADSL router which is handling all the port forwarding and stuff.

Would it be safe to switch iptables off in this situation ?

Problems with RPC ports for NFS

Hi Guys, I have started trying to configure my B3 to act as a boot server for my Raspberry Pi. However, I have run into some strange issues regarding the ports on the B3 after installing and configuring NFS. Installing NFS orginally worked fine and I was able to connect, however after a B3 reboot la...

Re: Problems with fetch mail and DNS addresses

Thanks Effevee!

Unfortunately that didn't work, but I fixed it by copying the resolv.conf from my Mac.

It was the same as my original resolv.conf, but missing the 'search lan' parameter. I am not sure what this does, and but my mail is now working without it.

Re: Problems with fetch mail and DNS addresses

Hmm, is that the issue ? The name server is not the one specified by my internet provider ? That IP address is my home router's admin port.. root@b3:/etc# more resolv.conf domain lan search lan nameserver 192.168.1.254 root@b3:/etc# <edit> No, changing the name server to my DNS server did not work :(

Problems with fetch mail and DNS addresses

Hi all, I have had major Bubba 3 problems over the past 24 hours (self imposed!) which forced me to rebuild and re-install my Bubba 3 from scratch. Everything is nearly working again, but the final problem is Fetchmail which is unable to access the external IMAP mail servers by stating the DNS name ...
