Re: Upgrade all the way from squeeze :D

As I'm saying, it's not my system, it's my friend's. I'm not sure what's installed there, it was installed 4-5 years ago and never updated (LAN with NAT, so not THAT bad).

I guess he likes Excito interface, any way to keep that?

Re: B3 as gateway, throughput issues ...

That's expected, and the reason I went from B3 as router (was fine enough for 150 Mbps link) to running OPNSense on Proxmox on Celeron J1900 (along with some other VMs) to reasonably work with 350 Mbps link.

Upgrade all the way from squeeze :D

Hi guys, I think it's quite undoable, but a friend of mine asked me to upgrade his B3 - which was fine, until I discovered it's still running Squeeze (with original B3 'elvin' distro) O_o Is there any sane way to go up to Buster? I have no idea what's installed and configured on this system; I can f...

Leaking RTC batteries

I thought I should share: I have a bunch of B3s, and I discovered that in all of them the RTC battery leaked - which may lead to damage to PCB.

You need to open B3, remove the (very small) screw holding PCB, replace the LR44 battery (clean up if it already leaked) and you'll be good to go again.

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 :-)

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.

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...
