Re: Debian jessie image 1.0 released for Bubba|2 / B3

OKAY, finished back-ups and ready to wipe 2 TB drive for an OS upgrade. I booted Live Gentoo USB for BUBBA|2 and then decided to install it to check out its overall operation. A bit of a learning curve for my Debian/Ubuntu fingers .... Gentoo incorrectly adjusted the time for Central US, Daylight Sa...

Re: B3 still available for purchase

Diatron has corresponded with me, and is currently investigating. They will reply to my inquiry early next week. So we will see where that goes. -- My issue with Excito, they handed to Swedish Post (and really did not ask for clarity -- what was happening). I regularly purchase internationally, and ...

Re: Debian jessie image 1.0 released for Bubba|2 / B3

I have no idea, never checked the BUBBA|2 partition table -- after I changed hard drives.
Used the standard Excito USB boot image and installed on empty (new) drive.

Re: Debian jessie image 1.0 released for Bubba|2 / B3

But the problem appears obvious: the hard drive in your B2 does not contain a swap partition.
Correct. This was installation from the standard Excito BUBBA|2 image (USB),
when I upgraded to the 2 TB hard drive (WD Red) about 4 years ago.

Re: B3 still available for purchase

I sent Diatron an e-mail with a Query about shipping to North America.

I have never had an issue with DHL (their O'Hare Air Cargo facility is less than 10 km from my house).

Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

I started the BACKUP of my Storage Directory on the Bubba|2 (~1.3 TB) ..... that will take awhile.

In the meantime, I have followed instructions by MouettE to create Debian jessie image 1.0
on the USB boot key for my Bubba|2.
I edited the file: install.ini for non-wipe mode.

Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

axm -

My Excito B2 is also running old kernel (2012), so I need to decide path forward.

b2:~$ uname -a
Linux b2 2.6.39.4-13 #1 Sat Apr 21 00:42:46 CEST 2012 ppc GNU/Linux

Re: My B2 Hard Disk has failed

I have had very good luck with the Western Digital RED series.
For my B2, I used the 2 TB model -- very quiet and cooler operation.

Re: Easyfind migration

EasyFind is again working.
At my firewall/router, tbe TCP port 80 (http) was open to the B2,
BUT I also had to open TCP port 8080. Not unusual for other similar systems.

Re: Easyfind migration

Well. the EasyFind service appears to be working today (Sunday, 15:15 UTC),
but stops at my network Firewall (not B2) -- so I will have to "re-edit" those settings to have it access the B2 on that LAN.
