Re: Practical, up-to-date (2015) use-cases for a B3?

Klingan, do not get me wrong - I usually prefer my stuff to work out of the box (so I rarely compile from source, for example) - it's just my usecase. Compared to Synology etc. - all those boxes have 40mm fan cooling the drives, most have just a single Ethernet port. For me the silence of operation ...

Re: Practical, up-to-date (2015) use-cases for a B3?

For me the use case is "2 TB ultra-silent, power-frugal, fast NAS with normal Linux on-board" and "SSH server at home that is up 24/7".

Frankly, there is currently no alternative on the market. Zero, none.

Re: resolv.conf not updated?

The other box is router/server, set up according to your instructions - so that'd be a 'yes'.

Re: resolv.conf not updated?

Ha. Ha. Ha. Turns out I have _not_ solved this before - it's just for some weird reason on my primary box 'resolvconf -u' is run after 'systemd-resolved'. The proper solution: Add /etc/systemd/network/eth0.network [Match] Name=eth0 [Network] DHCP=ipv4 [DHCP] UseDNS=True Then: systemctl enable system...

resolv.conf not updated?

Stupid thing, and I already solved it once, but apparently forgot how I did that. My secondary B3 does not update resolv.conf with info from DHCP. It's running Arch (sakaki build). All updated to newest packages. It simply leaves resolv.conf with: # This file is managed by systemd-resolved(8). Do no...

Re: What witchcraft is this? System transfer problem

I still think that it does something to partition tables - I was only using fdisk to check/see; besides, even kernel does not recognize them. Maybe I'll dig a bit more in some spare time. Anyway, I gave up trying to restore the system - after all, the reason to set up /home on separate partition was...

What witchcraft is this? System transfer problem

I'm in deep trouble. It's quite probable you're going to facepalm a few times when reading this, but please refrain from caustic comments - I'm already quite exhausted after spending my entire Sunday (which I had other plans for) on this issue. TL;DR: I do not have working system, and B3 seems to be...

Re: ZFS on B3?

Thanks for reply :-) I am using btrfs currently, no issues. Just now I'm copying data between 2 btrfs volumes, one SATA and one USB, with avg speed of 23 MBps.

Re: Open source B4 development

You know, as much as I love the idea, I don't quite think it's feasible. To design board+chassis+software is a considerable investment. The only way it could work is to use existing board design and design just the chassis, then have it produced - which is easy for plastic shell, but uninteresting (...

Re: Changed MAC on Arch B3?

sakaki, thanks a lot for identifying the issue :-) I am still just starting to feel my way around Arch. I like it so far :-)

Changed MAC on Arch B3?

I've noticed that my B3 is using "0e:....." MAC address on network cards instead of "00:...", as it used to. In sakaki's wiki, there are some notions that due to how kernel is loaded, special care must be taken when changing network card params. The question is: how can I revert back to my default M...

Good thing then that Arch by sakaki aims to create swap as second partition 8)

Re: 5GHz not working

Yeah, shame I cannot update the software on the card in any way... That'd be the real solution.

Anyway, since the kernel is much newer now, I used backports-4.0.1-1. The patch still works, and I'm running 5 GHz AP with my proper regulatory domain set in drivers.

Yay!
