Re: DLNA on Excito Bubba 2 ver. 2.4-RC1

Yes, but there's no telling how old someone's TV set is and apparently limits still apply especially with Sony equipment. Of course they would support H.264 on modern TV's - it's the most common format for HD (720p and 1080p) today - but the most heard complaint is that Matroska files can't be playe...

Quite possibly the same issue as reported here: http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3559.

Re: [Solved] Ln command

I guess you mean the flags should then be noauto,user? Correct. Also having the mount defined in fstab with the noauto flag would make mounting on the fly a much simpler command. Of course if you want the mount to be always up and script this in rc.local (or something controlled by rc.local) then t...

Re: [Solved] Ln command

be aware that mounting local folders in fstab via the 'bind' keyword often fails after reboot. Best way is to add the mount points in an rc.local script or something like that. True. You should probably only do this with binds that are within the root mount because the order of mounting cannot be c...

Re: [Solved] Patch for HDD temp on web site not working

Actually, the patch was already posted a while back: http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2662&start=20 It may have been a bit obscure though because I missed out on the possibility to add an attachment and posted it in a code block, where I had to find a way to distinguish between space- and...

Re: Can't see b3 @ Sony TV

I don't have a DLNA capable TV, so there's no way for me to verify this, but translated from a MiniDLNA on Ubuntu howto the config should look as follows on a B3 with WiFi (comments removed). port=8200 network_interface=br0 media_dir=A,/home/storage/music media_dir=V,/home/storage/video media_dir=P,...

Re: FTP port (21) not accessible

Strange... Actually what Rene is seeing would be more what I expected. The fix might be the same though and involves editing the config file /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf. Somewhere at the top, probably lines 9 and 10 (difference might apply because of B3 software version) it sais: # Set off to disable ...

Re: FTP port (21) not accessible

Can you ssh into the B3 and state the result of the following command?

Code: Select all

netstat -an | grep ":21"
Chances are that the service is only exposing itself on IPV6

Re: rsync: page allocation failure.

I stand corrected - my intel appears to be outdated. Found an entry on the old.nabble site though (listed as Bug #477377) that seems very similar to the described problem. The suggested fix is to add/change a setting in sysctl.conf. Remarkably enough this setting was already discovered by the Excito...

Re: rsync: page allocation failure.

Ubi,

It's not about filesystem or operating system - the limits apply to rsync itself.

I'm thinking the objective here was not about where the kid was surfing to (we like to think that kids have the same rotten visions and dirty minds as ourselves, but they don't) but how long he is surfing. Some years back my company was involved with a product called Connectux - a kind of noob linux...

Hi I want a noob user externally update webcontent without going to the /home/web/folder Http://download.azboxforum.nl Rene I thought as much after you mentioned web interface.

Re: Ln command

I'm not following what you're trying to do :?

/home/<username>/<whatever> is not web content, so can I assume you're using file manager in the web interface and want to use that to access files in the web folder as if it were a folder in some user's home directory?

Re: rsync: page allocation failure.

I think you may be hitting some limits on account of 32-bit operation, which can be either 2Gb or 4Gb depending on whether address space is using signed or unsigned numbers. A quick check seems to indicate that the B3 should be able to handle files upto 4Gb, but you're rsyncing with a Windows machin...

Thank You for the quick and useful answer! When it comes to AFP (Apple Filing Protocol), can I use the same rules, substituting "22" for the AFP port number? Yes: same method.
