Re: FreeBSD or any other still supported os on Bubba 2?

Not sure which version, I expected 7.8.
emerge lang/ghc
I rememembered now: the dependencies could not be resolved. I guessed that was related to it being marked (output of emerge -s).

Re: FreeBSD or any other still supported os on Bubba 2?

At least with this distribution, lang/ghc is masked and failed to emerge (with a non obvious error message to me - which I failed to persist - not a oom error ;) ). It was a pretty old version anyway - but I could have lived with that. Furthermore, I consider stack a must for me - which also failed ...

Re: FreeBSD or any other still supported os on Bubba 2?

I finally got around to it - your work is much appreciated :). It has been about 20 years I tried Gentoo last - so I was curious as well. Sadly, it seems Haskell support is almost nonexistent in Gentoo, which is a deal breaker for me :(. Getting Haskell to run on ppc is becoming more and more painfu...

Re: FreeBSD or any other still supported os on Bubba 2?

Don't get the specific relevance for bubba 2. I was looking more at viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5958

Re: FreeBSD or any other still supported os on Bubba 2?

I _thought_ I did. But when I do now I think I was mistaken, seems there are at least Gentoo users out there I was not aware of. Thanks.

FreeBSD or any other still supported os on Bubba 2?

My little toy that still just runs. Makes me wonder if excito would have had more success with worse hardware ... This summer I planned to reinstall a clean Debian on it only to discover Debian abandoned the powerpc architecture after jessie. So I have been looking around for operating systems which...

Re: Excito Bubba 2 external HDD

Well, it is hard to reply to that because you are so vague about why you think it should be a problem.

- Have you already tried it and the first try failed? More information please.
- If not, why exactly do you have concerns it won't work?

Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

As I said, I have given up on an update path and plan to reinstall, but I have not had the time yet to actually do so. If you are successful, I am still interested.

Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

Thanks for the clarification regarding uboot and the differences regarding this kernel and the one in the maintained release. From my understanding it should be possible to extract that kernel from there and do a "step by step" upgrade, but due to minor incompabilities that route would probably be m...

Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

Back from holiday - thanks for the reply. As I said I'd rather avoid a full reinstall on the first try - anf if something cannot be done, I like to understand why not. (Aa a backup plan a full reinstall is of course always an option.) I do not understand why ongoing maintenance of that kernel is imp...

Re: Kernel 3.2 for B2/B3

Whats the status of the kernel? Sorry if this is considered too old to be revived, but it is probably better than starting a new thread. I'd like to install a minimal debian kernel on my B2. Over the years I somehow managed to upgrade from the preinstalled debian (etch?) to jessie (... and somewhere...

... and it actually overwrites fstab with some old backup file, if it is told otherwise there - only on unmount though (Bubba 2). Confusing - giving up on automation once again.

Re: Remove multiple downloads

From what I have unterstood about it, I suppose you could alter usr/share/web-admin/admin/views/default/downloads/downloads_list_view.php to output an additional last modified date. Then have a cronjob set up with an additional script which deletes new torrents from downloads.csv and stops the rest....
