Re: B3 replacement

I most definitely didn't want to offend anyone - I have a fleet of B3s under my control and they are still fine :-) However, as said above - the hardware is old and quite slow by now. It cannot use full power of my broadband, for example :-) That's why I'm looking for something to replace my gateway...

Re: B3 replacement

Finally found (almost) perfect replacement: http://espressobin.net/

- cheap
- SATA
- 3 GE interfaces
- dual-core A53
- runs Arch
- fanless

Only thing it's lacking is decent case :( But for 50$, I can live with that :-)

Re: Any B3's for sale in Europe?

Perhaps you're right, 50 $ for 2 B3s is not bad :)

Any B3's for sale in Europe?

Hi, is there anyone who wants to part with his (her) B3?

For US-based guys, here's a pretty good deal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Excito-B3-Mini ... Sw-4pZz9DF

Unfortunately, while unit price is 10$, shipping to Poland is over 30$ :/

Re: B3 replacement

All interesting ideas, neither hits:
- fanless operation
- 3.5" HDD mount
- native SATA interface
- dual Ethernet

I just went through Aliexpress listings, and there are interesting devices - even x86 - but max they take is 2.5" HDD.

B3 becomes dated, but it's still one of a kind :-)

Re: Fuse in B3 power supply

That is true :-) I wonder what failed.

Gonna be hard finding 12V/3A, but at least I have a working cable :-)

Fuse in B3 power supply

The fuse in my power brick has blown. Does anyone know what type/rating the replacement should be?

Re: Arch B3 gets 2 IPs via DHCP on the interface?

Yes, I have access to the DHCP server to check that :-) But good point.

I'll try disabling dhcpcd.

Re: Arch B3 gets 2 IPs via DHCP on the interface?

Sakaki to the rescue :) # cat /etc/systemd/network/eth0.network [Match] Name=eth0 [Network] DHCP=ipv4 [DHCP] UseDNS=True I understand that systemd-networkd will also get address from DHCP, not using dhcpcd? To disable, just "systemctl disable dhcpcd" and reboot? It won't cause netctl to disable inte...

Re: I ordered a B3, but order status remains 'unfulfilled'

I can say for myself, but the reason is that nothing else is similarly compact, has combination of fast SATA (RPi doesn't have it), 2 ethernet ports (because firewall), USB ports (because extensibility) and metal enclosure (because fanless operation). Solid looks are a plus (as compared to GnuBee, f...

Arch B3 gets 2 IPs via DHCP on the interface?

Hi, I feel kind of stupid by posting a question I can probably figure out on my own, but here it's related to B3's networking - which is the only way to communicate with B3. The device is installed remotely, so if I mess up, it will stay down (well, up, but incommunicado) until I can get there. So, ...

How to test B3's RAM?

I get a lot of memory dumps in dmesg. It seems to me every time the OS is trying to use any more than about 100 MB of RAM weird things are happening.

How can I test RAM on B3? Normally I'd run memtest x86, but that's for x86, and is loaded instead of OS.
