Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (Linux 4.9.72 LTS, profile 17.0)

Sakaki - Thank you for this work. I pulled out my Bubba|2 , retired after I acquired a B3 (and installed Gordon’s image) a few years ago. Found a spare WD Red 2 TB drive and used a San Disk Cruzer Fit 16 GB (USB 2.0) for your gentoo-b2 image. Your instructions were helpful. Set the date, after hard ...

Was that related to the `bindist` flag issue reported earlier or did you run into something else?
YES, the install error message seems to be related to ‘bindist’.

genup USE="-bindist" appears to have resolved, with a couple of minor errors.

Re: New In Box Bubba 3's for sale to USA

I received an e-mail from Mr. Gates (eBay reseller: netdiskountsdeals (New Jersey, USA)). His inventory of NOS Excito B3 units is dwindling. He is checking, how many B3s are left — Some of these B3 servers are not in original boxes (and have NO hard drives). The UBOOT upgrade, to support 3 TB hard d...

Setting up a B3 miniserver

I purchased an Excito B3 miniserver with Wireless option from eBay reseller netdiskountsdeals (Mr. David Gates) of Highland Park, NJ. The eBay price is extremely attractive for North American buyers. This B3 miniserver is New Old Stock (NOS) without hard drive or rescue USB flash drive. Based on har...

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (Linux 4.4.39 LTS - Gentoo stable) + revision Apr 25

Received the NOS Excito B3 with Wireless LAN option, but without hard drive, last week. Based on hard drive rail marks, it appears this unit originally had a hard drive - which was removed. Since the history or mfg. date of this B3 was unknown, I updated the B3 bootloader to support 3 TB disks. http...

Re: New In Box Bubba 3's for sale to USA

I saw these Excito B3 (new old stock) on an eBay auction (112879648455), last week.
eBay reseller: netdiskounts, Highland Park, NJ (USA)

US seller claims to have more than 10, in stock.
Curious if these B3 units have upgraded firmware (uboot?) for 3 TB hard drive support.
