Hi Tor

When I installed the upgrade, it stopped the Apache, Samba & ProFTP servers. On restarting Bubba everything was back to normal, although now the version number in web-admin is: 0.31.1-1 Is this correct? I noticed two files were marked for download. Did I only get one?

Hi dougie,

You where most likely hit by one of our bugs regarding upgrades. The bug in question should be fixed in this version.

The problem where that we had a timeout problem in the upgrade page, resulting in "terminated" upgrades if they took to long. Which could be the case if one has a slow internet connection or is geographically far from the update server.

This should normally not be a problem and the upgrade should be ok. But to be sure, do a new upgrade and verify that it works ok.

A warning here. If you have altered your /etc/apt/sources.list you have to make sure that the only source active when updating the firmware is the Excito one. The web based upgrade UI cant handle any interactivity that might occur if doing an update on them via the web-ui.

Total file size in 0.31.1 download manager?

Post by Tompa » 22 Mar 2007, 11:54

I might be wrong, but I believe that the old version of the file manager page showed the total size of a torrent. Now I can only see size downloded and uploaded. Is there any special reason for this?

Otherwise a suberb update!

Hi Tor

I had altered /etc/apt/sources.list because I could only install software with apt-get using a UK mirror. When I set the sources.list to just use Excito, the upgrade went okay.

Thanks

Tompa,

You are absolutely right in that the total size of the download is not shown. And when looking backwards in our revision i don't think it ever had in the official versions.

Consider it added on the wanted feature list.

Hi Tompa,

It you want this functionality, and some others, you might want to check my new 'tiny little hack'.

But this time too you can experience some troubles with the colors in Internet Explorer... Let me know if you try.
