Many thanks Gordon for that information - I didn't know,

Re: Release notes for Excito Bubba 2&3 software version 2.6.

Do you mean by following the wiki instructions to install kirkwood? No, I had the idea to start with the Bubba-image, then purge all Excito specific packages and upgrade to Debian-Wheezy. That should not cause any significant problems. I did the same on my QNAP TS-109 with Orion Soc: started years ...

Re: Release notes for Excito Bubba 2&3 software version 2.6.

Me came another idea to abbreviate the waiting for a Wheezy upgrade from official side: Currently Excito is offering its B3 without HD at an attractive price (72€). If those newly sold boxes came with the patched/upgraded uBoot loader, it will be quite easy for any user with some Linux skill to inst...

Re: uboot update needed.

Can't be bothered to check at this moment, but what's up with this comment? But there is another issue: I have installed some Debian-packages on my B3 and those do not receive updates anymore because armel is EoL. Sorry, my fault, wanted to say Squeeze-armel . Squeeze on i386 and amd64 got LTS stat...

Re: uboot update needed.

I didn't start this discussion, I just made a positve comment on the uboot progress and said "THANKS" to MouettE for the good work and asked for later documentation.

Re: uboot update needed.

This discussion keeps on coming up every few months. We've all been told to keep up with updates or bad things happen. Ubi, you probably got me wrong. I did not mean the usual cases where the box is running behind a router with a NAT firewall (like here). I said "directly connected to the internet"...

Re: uboot update needed.

With the current "firmware" from Excito it is no longer safe to connect the box directly to the internet. I wouldn't put it like that. In fact the last big security issue that hit linux platforms (ssl heart bleed) did touch Wheezy but not Squeeze. Hi Gordon, I do know that Squeze was not affected b...

Re: uboot update needed.

Thanks for your excellent work from me as well MouettE, I am waiting for a safe upgrade to Wheezy as well. With the current "firmware" from Excito it is no longer safe to connect the box directly to the internet. Squeeze support for security updates on ARM platform is already EoL since a while. Mayb...

Re: Intel card N6205 with b3

1. The module to load for 6205 Wifi-card is 'iwlwifi' (here the info from my Wheezy desktop): $ lsmod | grep iwl iwlwifi 166761 0 mac80211 192806 1 iwlwifi cfg80211 137243 2 mac80211,iwlwifi 2. The necessary firmware file (kernel ≤ 3.2) is version 17.168.5.3 (iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode) It has to be pl...

All that information is logged in /var/log/apt/history.log* and term.log* in Debian.

Re: I have been attacked and don't know why.

Just my 2 cents: B3 has currently PHP Version: 5.3.3-7+squeeze4ex1 which dates back to July 2011. Debian-Squeeze since then received 13 security-updates/fixes and currently is version 5.3.3-7+squeeze17 (see here: http://ftp-master.metadata.debian.org/changelogs//main/p/php5/php5_5.3.3-7+squeeze17_ch...

Same here!

Additional info:
just today Debian released security fixes for GnuPG, see here: http://www.debian.org/security/2013/dsa-2773 for Wheezy and Squeeze. is there a chance to get those also into B3?
