Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

It's likely that U-Boot doesn't like too large ext3 filesystems. You could try to flash to the rodeus version available at http://install.excito.org/b3/uboot/beta/ using the instructions on the wiki page you mentioned earlier. It's more recent so it may work. I don't have 3tb drive to test it.

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

I just saw your edited comment, good news.

So with the default disk size, you get a 10g root, and it boots. Then you grew it to 2T and it still works. When you grow it above the 2T limit, the b3 won't boot anymore ?

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

The version you use is the version mentioned in the wiki. So this should not be a problem.

Just to be sure, when you try to boot what is the led pattern ? (purple then red or is it another sequence)

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

OK that seems fine. I need to run a couple of tests at home to try identify the cause of the red led. I'll get back to you in a couple of days.

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

Hello, I'll try to help you debug this. First, the ext3 signature error is not relevant, it's just a warning that there is exisiting data on the disk getting wiped. Do you know which version of u-boot your b3 is running ? If not can you run the rescue system and give the output of this command : str...

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

I've done a few tests and I got it to work on the stretch image of the b3. The main issue preventing the system from booting is the type of the partition created. You must set it to 29 in order for the kernel to autodetect the arrays on boot : root@b3:~# fdisk -l /dev/sda Disk /dev/sda: 149.1 GiB, 1...

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

It looks good. I'm going to have to test it on my b3 with a serial console to sort it out. I'll try to recreate your setup and see how it goes with your previously posted commands. I'll keep you updated in the next couple of days.

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

Small update to the stretch image, to fix mtd modules in the rescue/install system.

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

Sorry this is a bug of the rescue install os which doesn't load the proper module for the mtd device. I will fix that but all you need to do is load the proper module first : [root@b3-install devices]# modprobe m25p80 m25p80 spi0.0: m25p16 (2048 Kbytes) 3 ofpart partitions found on MTD device spi0.0...

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

It seems to work well.

You can connect either to the wan or the lan to a DHCP enabled network. Once the rescue system is up and running, the LED will animate with yellow and cyan colors to dictate the relevant part of the IP address acquired by DHCP.

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

That would probably work but I'd stay away from u-boot changes as I've seen a lot a problems with that at home. Why can't you boot the rescue system ? Is it because of the error about image None cannot be found ? That should not stop the rescue system from booting, but to fix it you need to comment ...

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

If you altered u-boot settings when enabling full raid on your b3 this is expected, as u-boot tells the kernel to look for RAID array which doesn't exist. You need to do a manual install from the rescue system (most of the b2 RAID install wiki still applies) : Boot the rescue system, Create the new ...

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

What version of debian are you running on your b3 ? If jessie, it would be simpler to do an dist-upgrade.

Re: Cryptsetup and the 3.18.27-1 Kernel

Good to know. Let me know if there is any issue. I will make an official release in the next couple of weeks.
