New firmware update 0.52.2

Post by tor » 07 Apr 2008, 17:00

Release notes for Bubba 0.52.2
======================

This is a bugfix only release. Mainly to fix the blacklist problem when receiving email.

How to upgrade
--------------------
Make sure you don't have any activities running such as uploads, downloads, print jobs etc. Then log in as admin in web-ui. Chose "settings" menu entry. Select the tab named "Maintenance", the tabs are only present in newer versions of the firmware. On this tab, or the settings page if you have the old version of the web-admin ui, press the "Update" button located in the "Update software" field. After a while it should say "done" and the upgrade should be complete. In rare ocations, the web-ui can hang when doing an upgrade. In these cases the easiest solution is to use the shutdown/power button to restart the unit.

Warning, if you have modified your apt sources the web-admin ui should not be used for upgrades.

Major changes and new features
-----------------------------------------
* Removes the closed RBL server ordb.org

Updates and minor changes
------------------------------------
* Bugfix, adding multiple fetchmailaccounts sometimes got added multiple times.
* Bugfix, allow "." and "-" in username for smtp authentication.
* Bugfix, fix crash in download manager when adding corrupt torrent files to torrents dir.
* Bugfix, fix crash in download manager when adding torrent to torrents dir as non user.
* Bugfix, make sure all data is written to disk when http/ftp download is complete.
* Change, DHT is not enabled in download manager by default anymore. Has to be manually enabled in config now.

I ran the update and it updated 6 packages successfully.

But seconds later I could not reach bubba through internet explorer.
I restarted Apache which solved this.

But when I log back into web-admin it says I have firmware Ver: 0.52.1-1.

I manually commented out RBL server ordb.org and disabled DHT in download manager a week or so ago. I didn't change these back to there original settings before I ran the update. Would this of caused my problems?

Hi GaryL,

Those changes really should not have caused any problems. What happens if you try to upgrade again? You had no other sources enabled but the Excito ones?

It looks like I have ran the update with the other 3 sources enabled.
I thought I had commented them out before I ran the update, but I mustn’t of saved the file after editing it.

I confirmed that I had commented out the all repositories bar the excito one and ran the update again.

But I now just get the following:

Updating available sources... done
Checking for updates... done
0 package(s) to update.

No packages to update at this moment

errors after "New firmware update 0.52.2"

Hi,
I did upgrade my bubba wihtout reading your explanations through, and I did it with the web-admin UI, and the three other apt sources. And now that I made the mistake, I can't access the http://bubba/web-admin any more. It asks me if I want to download the index.php file because there is "no program that can handle this type of file"...
I would be gratefull if anybody could help on this matter.

I am interested in solutions to this too. Apache is serving me the php files instead of interpreting them.

I finally managed to solve some problems that resemble some of those discribed here. I wrote about the process in this thread. As you might surmise I am no Debian guru, but you might find some inspiration there for messing around on your own. Good luck! :twisted:
