I think you may need to change your sources.list: see this thread http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?t=1506

See here for a (partial) solution: http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?t=1351. Unfortunately, like RonaldJ (see http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?t=1502) I tried installing NTP, but even using an updated sources.list, I still get errors. Could someone in the know provide a fully working source...

Damn. Tried to upload a torrent from my mobile phone to the bubba, and it became completely unstable. Restarting ftd didn't seem to help, so had to reboot the bubba. Uptime was 138 days, is now 30 minutes... :(

Having finally got my Popcornhour to connect using its WiFi adapter (which is extremely fussy BTW) I have a question about setting up samba shares; how can I set up the video/music/photos shares on the bubba, so that they don't require passwords? I have edited the smb.conf file, to set the home, mus...

I must admit to being tempted to buy another bubba (one), as they're so cheap from the excito shop. Not sure I could get that one past my wife though!!

215 days; that is impressive. We had one of our circuit breakers trip just before New Year; luckily, our bubba is also powered via a UPS, so it was a. safe and b. its uptime was not affected.

A friend of mine has discovered that the Popcornhour can be bought with a WiFi adapter, so I have now ordered one. So, my question is: is there anything I need to look out for when configuring it up to work with my bubba?

I had a similar problem connecting to my bubba one from outside using my mobile phone; this was eventually solved by setting the mode to active rather than passive. Maybe that's the problem here...?

To reach your bubba from outside your home, you'll have to use your public IP address rather than name.bubbaserver.com.ie. my IP address is 81.xyz.xyz.xyz, so when I fill in the FTP server name, this is what I use.

I hope this helps...

Bubba Two Review

Although I don't own a bubba Two, there is an interesting (and generally positive) review of it in the current issue of the British magazine PCW: http://www.pcw.co.uk/personal-computer-world/hardware/2228589/review-excito-bubba-two-home The same reviewer wrote the review of the original bubba last y...

It could be something to do with your router. If you've rebooted your router since you last rebooted your bubba, the bubba could still have a valid IP address, but the name bubba is not recognised, as it's no longer present in the DHCP table in your router. I suspect that rebooting your router follo...

I am trying to install qwikiwiki on my bubba, but am a bit lost. The README doesn't explain how to install it on a device such as the bubba, so I'm a bit unsure where to copy everything.

Any help would be gratefully received...

First of all, you need to install some kind of terminal/ssh program; for windows you can use putty, which is completely free. Once you have installed ie. putty, you need to run it and enter the IP address of your bubba. You will then be asked for your username and password; once you have filled thes...

Mac OSX issues

I (well, my wife does) have a strange OSX problem. Most of the time, my wife's MacBook, running the latest version of OSX, can "see" the bubba without any problem, but every now and again, it goes wrong. The home and storage folders become "unavailable", and when I try to disconnect the bubba in the...
