Notice to bubbagen users (print server)

Annoyingly it seems I have tripped over an old ghostscript bug once more in the new 1.11 release. As a result you may see the following error displayed by the cups daemon: INFO: Color Manager: no profiles specified in PPD The actual cause for this rather puzzling error message is that ghostscript go...

Re: Arch Linux Live-USB for B3 updated (archlinuxarm.org kernel, shorewall migration)

Yeah, Shorewall, strong as it is can definitely be overwhelming. First time I came into contact with it was with the LEAF project - a single floppy based OS and firewall. That is 1.44Mb in total, those were the days... I think it must have taken me over a year to fully comprehend what I was supposed...

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (Gentoo profile 17)

You're welcome.

Fun thing is that I thought it might be related to the uboot version. Never crossed my mind that you might have created a post-boot solution for it.

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (Gentoo profile 17)

First my own kernel. I then tried kernels from both your arch and gentoo images with the same result. I saw it happen on the serial console as the kernel was loading. Figured it was something in kexec masking part of the device tree, but then I found that if I ran kexec from a live system it did hav...

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.1 released for B3

How did you unzip the files and edit install.ini? Or to be more precise: what OS do you have running on the machine where you did that? If you are running Windows there is a big chance that your files may have been corrupted. To start: don't use explorer to extract the files - use `7-zip` (free) or ...

Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (Gentoo profile 17)

Hi, I've just released version 1.11 of the Bubbagen live-USB image for B3 on GitHub. Because the new Gentoo profile defaults to building position-independent executables and this may lead to incompatibilities with non-pie libraries this is a complete rebuild of the Live-USB. If you are already runni...

Re: Setting up a B3 miniserver

Hi Greg, I use a crossdev machine to run the major part of the compile jobs and once in a while there is a package that gets confused by the crossdev root not being / I did find that app-portage/eix is such a package and it hard codes the crossdev root inside its scripts, causing it to be unable to ...

Advice for LMS (Squeezebox) users

As I was running some updates yesterday I noticed my radio stream got interrupted up to the point where it became impossible to follow it. At the same time I got the idea that the update was running slower than it should. As it turned out the radio stream I was listening on through my Squeezebox Rec...

Re: Setting up a B3 miniserver

Hi, Always welcome feedback. Should probably look into that blank disk issue, but that may be simpler said than done and hard to test without buying at least one new disk myself. The date issue you are seeing is probably from one time being displayed in localtime and the other in UTC, possibly even ...

Re: B3 replacement

Guys, it's not like that. The point is that there is nothing wrong with OP's unit. There was just a little config problem that didn't turn up during tests and was solved the same day the issue got raised. The annoying part is that by then this topic already existed.

Re: B3 replacement

I really intend to keep the B3 running for as long as its hardware doesn't fry. And I actually do use Bubbagen myself, although my production system uses somewhat different USE flags and I don't use all of the functions that it provides (but who does? or did with the original software?). As such I f...

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

Correct. Must note though that uImage needs to be in /boot of what will typically be /dev/sda1. This means that if you mount /dev/sda1 as /boot that uImage must be at /boot/boot/ in your filesystem. Another thing is that the uBoot environment loads your kernel with a command line that sets root at /...

Re: Upgrade from RAID-enabled squeeze to stretch

Correct. The first partition on the disk (where `/boot/uImage` has to reside) has to be either FAT, ext2 or ext3 formatted. That doesn't mean you can't use ext4 for root though, it just means you need to move root to a different partition. Might want to note that 10G is probably a bit tiny for moder...
