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

B2 will not boot when I have a mount in fstab with UUID and the disk is not attached. with other machines I dont have this problem. How do I set up a recovery usb with this image to fix b2? Edit: Have I got these parameters right in the install.ini file? ## defaults # [general] # image = None (rescu...

2 short blinks then one long blink, what does it mean?

I was trying to reinstall my B2, however days have passed with the thing just blinking. But now it started blinking two short blinks then one log. What does that mean?

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

Does wifi work with this install on a B2? Or if not, can I make it work myself without too much work?

Re: My B2 Hard Disk has failed

I dont know about php. But you can reinstall B2 with a usb key. The instructions and usb image is in the excito wiki somewhere.

Re: Use Lvm on new install?

Makes sense! I always wondered how the radius difference on the disk was handeled.

The disk (2tb) is still formatting, I think. Atleast it is blinking, making some hdd noise once every two seconds, and reads from the usb key. Hope it will be done soon.

Re: Any help with compiling and installing spindown+auto mou

No scripting or compiling is needed fo this.
Use fstab to automount disks. It is located in /etc folder.
Use hdparm -S command to set spindown time for the disk.

Googling "fstab automount" and "hdparm spindown time"
Should get you going.

Re: Use Lvm on new install?

That is a lot! At the moment im doing a complete reinstall and format with the usb stick. I guess I can make a new partition table and install on the disk without formatting it over again. It has been formatting for approximatley 30 hrs now...

Re: Use Lvm on new install?

Interesting, however I could not find that post. However it seems like a better idea to have the swap partition closer to the root one. Did you gain much performance on file transfer for instance? Anyway, why do you choose such a large root partition? I sized it to 3Gb due to the fact that I will on...

Use Lvm on new install?

I am reinstalling my b2 with a new disk. However, I wonder if it will be better off by not using lvm2. Just disable it in the install config. I never use extra disks et anyway..

Re: bubba-backup - how does it work?

I struggeled to get the bubbabackup to work too. Always some issues so I ended using rsync scripts instead, or just run the command directly over ssh by smartphone.

Re: replace B2 hard disk

The embedded wdidle tool only works on a B3. The sata controller in B2 is not compatible, thus you need to connect it to a computer.

Re: replace B2 hard disk

Also if you buy a wd green disk, consider turning off head parking. You need to connect the disk to a computer and run the wdidle3 tool/script.
And dont forget to put the heat conductive tape on the new disk.

Log in as admin,

I would recommend ssh login and use rsync+crontab instead. I had too many problems with the bubba-backup before...

Re: Open source B4 development

Thank you for the feedback! I think for the casing the cheapest option could be to use some big hdd casing off ebay and then implement the Circuit board. CB is another thing, I know custom design CB got cheaper in the later years due to the pick and place machines. And usually you can have scematics...
