I also have to use promisc mode, allmulti will not work!

I tried firefly without the edited config-file and now it works! So like mabl I do not need to edit the hostname setting!

Is this a bug or a limitation:

When I use the filemanager in web-gui and browse to a directory named with local characters I get errors;

I have a directory called "Håkan Hellström" and when I click on that directorty/link I get the following:

/home/storage/music/Håkan Hellström
Invalid path or access denied for user 'macke'

It seems to be something wrong with how the web-gui reads special characters!

I noticed that after you updated this forum, the characters in my previous post got messed up!

The directory is called "Håkan Hellström" and I get the following error:

/home/storage/music/Håkan Hellström
Invalid path or access denied for user 'macke'

The hell of character encoding ^^ For me it shows all the characters ok (In SSH, Samba, Webinterface). I use UTF-8 encoding everywhere. But it does NOT work to change into a directory which uses non ASCII characters in the web interface.

Hi,

A few days ago I "upgraded" my bubba with lenny and ran into a few problems/issues/undocumented features.

- After installing the image and restoring the backup of my bubba-settings I tried to reconnect to the bubba mail and got errors. The Thunderbird error suggested it was SSL related. So I enabled SSL in TB and it worked. SSL is mentioned in the bubba2 manual, but not in bubba1 I think.....

- Now connected to my bubba I tried to send a mail to myself and got a relay error. The problem turned out to be that I had entered my bubba as SMTP server in TB rather than my ISP's. No idea why I ever did that, but bubba won't relay anymore.....

- After sending a few mails to several email accounts nothing arrived. After checking I found out fetchmail wasn't started automatically, and after starting it by hand -> all mails showed up immediately.

- everytime I connect to my bubba using TB i get a Security Error: Domain name mismatch. My bubba is named "whatever" but reports to TB as bubba.localdomain.

/Daan

PS Static IP address is set when using the RESTORE button to restore the bubba-settings.
PPS I ran into an old annoying bubba-feature: user passwords may only be AZaz09_ and no other special characters. Of course you can always update via SSH, but you're inviting people to use weak passwords....

Same problem here, I can't use åäöéèê with mcabber or on the command line.

EDIT: run theses commands as root (add the debian repositories first)
#apt-get install locales
#dpkg-reconfigure locales
select the appropriate locale for your system
#locale-gen
you're done :)

My experience so far with this image.

1) It really is a pain that some USB sticks work for image booting and some just don't - oddly it seems to be cheaper and/or smaller ones that work!

2) With Lenny the Bubba takes _ages_ to boot - not a huge issue as booting should be rare!

3) Yes I also had to change eth1 to eth0 in /etc/samba/smb.conf

4) For some reason I seemed to also need to add the "up ifconfig eth0 promisc" to /etc/network/interfaces before I could find the Samba shares - is this right?

5) I was totally thrown by the switch from "home" to "homes" and the read only setting, so I simply added a "home" share that was not read only!

Does this image preserve the existing configuration or does it do a fresh install?

It does reformat your hard drive. You'll surely need to backup.

I am in phase installing the image several times, because installing munin doesn´t seem to work. It doesn´t update the graphs http://debianforum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=112784.
When I reintall the bubba lenny image I still get the 1.0 version with date bug. Are there any plans to update the image which can be downloaded?

Regards
Boy

P.S. If anybody has any idea to the munin issue I would appreciate it.

I have managed to get MediaTomb working. I browse to it at http://bubba:49125/.

It confused me at first because running it from the command line as root worked fine but it wouldn't start correctly from /etc/init.d.

To fix it.

1: edit the storage bit of /etc/mediatomb/config.xml to be:
<storage>
<sqlite3 enabled="yes">
<database-file>/var/lib/dbconfig-common/sqlite3/mediatomb-daemon/mediatomb</database-file>
</sqlite3>
<mysql enabled="no"/>
</storage>

2: set INTERFACE="eth0" in /etc/default/mediatomb

3: copy /root/.mediatomb/mediatomb.db to /var/lib/dbconfig-common/sqlite3/mediatomb-daemon/mediatomb replacing the mediatomb file already there. It should now be 18432 bytes in size.

4: change the permissions on the folder /var/lib/dbconfig-common/sqlite3/mediatomb-daemon to 777.

5: change the permissions on the file /var/lib/dbconfig-common/sqlite3/mediatomb-daemon/mediatomb to 777.

6: Restart mediatomb with /etc/init.d/mediatomb restart.

The mediatomb log at /var/log/mediatomb.log should then be

2010-04-03 09:16:16 INFO: Loading configuration from: /etc/mediatomb/config.xml

Under lenny, syslog is reporting this error message regularly.

bubba modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.16.16/modules.dep: No such file or directory.

The directory /lib/modules is empty.

Any ideas?

I tried to shut down lenny on my Bubba server using the button at the back. The light started flashing but it never actually shut down. After 12 hours of the flashing light I turned the power off.

I had noticed before that if I left the boot usb stick in then it would reinstall lenny when the button was pressed.

Now I can boot up the server by turning the power on. The light eventually stop flashing. However, the server is not present on the network and my router reports that it is inactive. I have tried rebooting the server to no avail. I have also tried unplugging the ethernet cable.

Help, any ideas.

For debian archive.
Update /etc/apt/sources.list with this line.
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny contrib main non-free

As Lenny is old, the key is also old. Just ignore.
To use a new key (i.e. one that has not expired), all the package-lists in
the Lenny repository would have to be re-signed using that key.
Basically, you'd be updating an obsolete release.

However, if we look back at your output you'll notice that the "errors"
are prefixed with "W:". This means they are just warnings. APT is
warning you that, although the signatures verified and the keys are
trusted (which is what you want), the keys have expired. Well, you
already know that Lenny is old, so this is just confirmation. APT
*should* still work (it should still be able to install new packages for
you and so on). Perhaps, instead, you should worry if the warning
*doesn't* appear :)
