Re: [SOLVED] [Old] WD Green Power drives may kill themselves

Just received a b3. I had to apply the patch manually. After that a powerdown and restart was necessary to stop the LCC to increase. The LCC is now on 177 (the tool did not reset it). My b2 (2008) has a LCC of 50, but that was after a manual patch (see my previous post of 2009-03-21 15:58 http://for...

Re: Users can reach other users home folders

This is an 'old' problem, see my post below
http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?t=1280

I asked excito to change this.
Now I manually change some files after every update.
Since the updates are very small this is not a big job but it is very inconvenient.

Re: Reinstalling mysql - how?

Just executed the following command:

Code: Select all

dpkg-reconfigure bubba-album
Everything works fine (creating albums, adding images, adding users, viewing albums).

Re: Reinstalling mysql - how?

I've got the same problem. I did not upgrade via the web-gui, but used apt-get update apg-get dist-upgrade I also did not know how to answer the questions about the passwords. So choose to ignore the install errors and continue. Pressing 'Photo-Album' results in a blank page with the text: A Databas...

Today I took out my harddisk out of the Bubba and attached it to a PC. Started the PC in DOS mode and flashed my harddisk with the WD firmware update (RE2IdleModeUpd.zip). After that I used the spinup tool of WD (wdspinup.zip) and set the drive to "super low current spinup mode". After that I put th...

Hello Johannes, Robv I have exactly the same disk as RobV. The proposed script does not work for me either. I managed to stop the Load Cycle Count increase with the script below. Just run it as 'normal' user (su is not needed). #!/bin/sh while [ 1 ]; do ls -l $HOME/. > $HOME/wd.prevent.unload.txt sl...

By default user "admin" is a member of group "admin". To add user "admin" also in group "users" you can use the following command: usermod -G users admin The -G must be the capital letter G: -g means something else. This command can be repeated for more groups for the same user, or a list of groups ...

You have to make the script (you called Alive) executable by the following command:

Code: Select all

chmod 755 Alive
After that you can start it by typing:

Code: Select all

nohup Alive &

or execute the following command:

Code: Select all

nohup /bin/sh Alive &
If everything is correct, you still get an empty nohup.out

Running in bash is correct,
but I think you have to give the following command (where SCRIPT must be replaced by the name you gave to the script):

Code: Select all

nohup SCRIPT &
This makes sure the script is not attached to the terminal so it does not receive any signals which cause it to terminate.

I upgraded to version 1.1.2 today (7-feb-2009). After that I tested the guest account issue again. Unfortunately it still isn't fixed: user guest can still access the files as if it was a member of group "users". In the previous version I made some small changes in the file backend.pl. I could not l...

Kees, can you check your model number? Mine is a WDC WD1000FYPS-01ZKB0 (output of smartctl: grep "Device Model") I just found some extra info of WDC. The models ending with B1 have the updated firmware which should fix this problem. See info of WDC below: Product Change Notice WD Green Power EP250 F...
