Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.0 released for B3

It might, yes that is me. Problem is I can't really remember what compiler and library versions I used for creating those libs and I was recently confronted with the fact that this can cause incompatibilities. I think the Perl 5.22 and 5.24 modules were created with gcc 4.9 but the main issue would ...

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.0 released for B3

Judging by its name I'd say you got the wrong package. You need the `armel` version. If there is no such package you need the noarch version and either build the armel specific modules yourself or get them some place else.

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.0 released for B3

Ah yes, 'predictable' names if you assume one knows to which physical slot hardware is connected. You can also add an udev rule to name the wifi device what you expect it to be: SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="ath9k", NAME="wlan0" (change driver if you added some other brand/type wifi ada...

Re: Support for original Bubba OS abandoned?

Hmmm... right. Must have inherited the incorrect server name from when it was temporarily hosted on Ubi's mybubba.org and then reverted.

Support for original Bubba OS abandoned?

Looks like update.excito.org does no longer contain the (source) packages for the original Bubba OS any more.

Come on, you did an amazing job it works very well !
Haha. Thx. What I actually meant is that I'm probably the last person one should ask whether it is a good idea to switch to bubbagen. :wink:

Re: Upgrade Logitech Media Server

Ahum, well... ehhh... You can at least try. The live USB is non disruptive to your existing installation. It does not mount or write to the internal disk unless you specifically tell it to do so. If it doesn't behave to your liking simply reboot and it will be running the original Bubba OS again. Ma...

Re: B3 internal wifi interface slot

Half-size Mini PCI Express The stock card in a B3 is from Qualcomm and reports as 'Atheros AR928X'. Don't have an open unit at the moment, but I think this maps to a AR5B95 card. Of course there will be other brands (Realtek, Intel) and types that will also fit, but then there could be driver proble...

Re: B3: problem with 4.11 (and 4.12-rc3 mainline) kernels / sata_mv

Good job!

Wonder if this is restricted to the B3. Hardly seems possible that other systems would not be affected by this issue as well.

Re: dhclient.conf Vendor Class Identifier (option 60)

Yes. For home phone you would still need to use the ISP provided router. Could still be beneficial though to place it behind a VLAN splitter as this will put you in control of what signals can come in or go out of that router. As it happens my ISP provided me a router with a backdoor and I'm quite c...

Re: dhclient.conf Vendor Class Identifier (option 60)

That first link seems pretty cut-and-paste for your installation. One thing though: is it just internet you're getting on the fibre connection? Here in NL the bandwidth is shared with television and speech and it is the ISP provided router that splits these signals (separated by VLANs). By adding VL...

I think that last command should be

Code: Select all

Re: Perl upgrade advise for Gentoo users!

Hi Sakaki, Well the thing is I masked it because my LMS binary did not have the necessary 5.24 components in it yet and portage told me to unmask it. So then I changed the keywords and portage told me to add perl 5.24 to accept_keywords. Apparently the way to block it is to mask all virtuals that wa...

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (Linux 4.4.39 LTS - Gentoo stable) + revision Apr 25

Probably the worst timing ever...

The very same day I released this version the Gentoo dev-team marked perl 5.24 stable. An upgrade that proved to be extremely troublesome. The updated link above points to a new image that contains both the upgrade to perl 5.24 *and* to gcc 5.4.0.

Enjoy,
Gordon
