Re: Debian dist-upgrade on B2 & B3

Thanks for the step-by-step. I might work up the courage over Thanksgiving (next weekend). Or maybe Christmas when I have some serious time to recovery.

[and hopefully someone else reports success by then :D )

Re: Debian dist-upgrade on B2 & B3

Are there step-by-step semi-newbie friendly instructions on how to perform an upgrade to Jessie on B2 hardware?

(I don't use anything Bubba-specific other than the hardware)

eSATA connector help

I've replaced my original Bubba2 500G drive with a 2TB WD Green drive in order to do an upgrade w/o wiping out my data. Now I'd like to connect the 500G to copy over a lot of files to the new disk. I'd prefer to do this through the eSATA(faster than USB) interface but I'm unfamiliar with eSATA conne...

Re: B1/2 -> B3 upgrade discount

I'm just chiming in to say this is a wonder nod to the B2 customer base. Unfortunately, I don't think can convince my wife that I need to spend $450 on more muscle for that strange little black box in the corner of the room. Then again, maybe Christmas. Anyway, thanks for the tip of the hat to the B...

Re: Running Debian lenny or squeeze on Bubba Two

Okay, this looks promising. I don't use any Excito specific applications, so this looks possible.

Is the Excito kernel necessary? Anyone have the build parameters that are different than the defaults?

Thanks for posting this.

Re: Upgrade to Squeeze?

Sorry, that was an error on my part. It's running Etch currently.

Upgrade to Squeeze?

I've had my Bubba II for 2 years now. It's running Lenny with kernel 2.6.32. I don't use any of the Bubba specific interfaces. I just use straight Debian tools. I'd like to know how I would upgrade my Bubba to Squeeze. apt-get dist-upgrade ? or is there more to it than that because of the special ha...

Re: B2+Lenny+SqueezeCenter

Simon, that's great to hear. I've been considering upgrading Bubba2 by just pointing /etc/apt/sources.list at deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib and letting it ride. However, I've been a little hesitant due to suspecting the excito people tweaked the kernel in some w...

Re: Crash + Blinking light. What more to do?

I would suspect rtorrent (running under a non-root user process (shell)) ate it all while rehashing a feed (when the item hits 100%). That's all I know of that was going on in system at the time -- other than the usual daemons and possibly fetchmail.

Crash + Blinking light. What more to do?

I was sitting right next to my BubbaII when this happened. Among other things it was hashing a torrent file at the time. Then there was an extended disk read/write (I could hear). After that BubbaII wouldn't respond to ping. I disconnected the power, waited 30sec, then booted it. The drive spun like...

Re: Can't start Slimcenter

okay, I found this in /etc/dconfig-common/squeezecenter.conf

Code: Select all

# dbc_dbadmin: name of the administrative user
#       this is the administrative user that is used to create all of the above
dbc_dbadmin="root@localhost"
changing that to "root' solved the above problem.
