Yup - my new B3 does seem to be running Squeeze 'out of the box'

Re: Update to lenny?

The current datasheet for the B3 claims that it runs "Debian Linux 2.6 (Squeeze)" - so it looks like this is what we get.

Mine is ordered and somewhere in the system waiting to arrive, so I will find out soon :D

Re: Is Bubba useless for PHP?

OK, something I did recently has cut the 30 second delay to 4 seconds.

I am not sure what change caused this as I have tried a lot of little modifications to try and narrow down what was causing the problem.

I will keep investigating and post back if I discover anything helpful!

Re: Installing (My)SQL on Bubba One

The Bubba is already set up with most, if not all, of what you want. The normal web-interface that Bubba uses is based on these technologies. I can't remember if the basic version has MySQL, but it does in the Lenny image and I would expect it to be part of the default setup. [ phpMyAdmin is not par...

Re: Is Bubba useless for PHP?

OK, I can see that I probably need to be giving a bit more info... I have modified the relevant pages of my code to include the following as the first line of the file: <?php $start_time = array_sum( explode( ' ' , microtime() ) ); and at the very bottom of the file I have: $end_time = array_sum( ex...

Re: Is Bubba useless for PHP?

I take it from the deafening silence since my initial post that this is regarded as "normal" and "acceptable" by Bubba owners and Excito staff.

Is Bubba useless for PHP?

So far I have been using my Bubba as a glorified NAS, and a slow one at that! However, I have recently started to use it as a real server - and I have found it unusably slow. I have written a very simple application in PHP that allows me to manually input data into a MySQL database and display that ...

Re: BubbaServer (b1) lenny image

My experience so far with this image. 1) It really is a pain that some USB sticks work for image booting and some just don't - oddly it seems to be cheaper and/or smaller ones that work! 2) With Lenny the Bubba takes _ages_ to boot - not a huge issue as booting should be rare! 3) Yes I also had to c...

Wrapping your hard drive in tape is a really bad idea!

I would recommend a mounting kit such as http://stores.channeladvisor.com/cables ... id=3780095

As the Bubba is a Linux server there are plenty of options ant others with more experience will explain below...

However, the new version does have a great feature that I requested a while back - a lock point that will allow a laptop lock to be used to chain it to a desk/floor/wall etc.

First shipments within 2 weeks, but we have a quite long list of preorders that have priority, so perhaps 4-5 weeks right now. Sorry about that, hope you can wait. :) I would like to see some photos of the unit itself... Do you got any that you can share with the community? Thanks! You want other o...

Um, the place I tend buy my flash drives only has one 512MB one and it is £8.

It is actually cheaper to buy a 2GB one at £7, or you could really go to town and blow £10 on a 4GB one!

Yes, there has never been any "resolute refusal" from our side, only "sloppy forum reading". :) We generally try to be as open as possible with everything.
