Can't start Bubba

Post by marcel23 » 06 Feb 2008, 08:41

I've pressed the update button on the web-admin. I've got the message that processes were update. After the update, i can't reach bubba (through the web-admin). I can reach the data through the explorer. I've rebooted bubba, but now it doesn't start anymore, the led keeps blinking.
When i use the command line (putty) is see '-bash-2.05b$' in stead of the username i used to log in.

I'm getting a little frustated. Do I need to reinstall and lose all my data ?

Hi,

Somethihng seems to have gone wrong when upgrading.

Could you log in to bubba. Become root and then issue:

Code: Select all

apt-get upgrade
and then give us the output of this.

Ok,

Try using the rescue/minimal image, http://update.excito.net/install/minimal/ Boot it and log in to the rescue system as root.

When logged in start by doing a checkdisk to make sure the disk is ok.

Code: Select all

fsck -text3 /dev/hda1
After that mount the disk.

Code: Select all

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt
Then chroot in to the system on disk.

Code: Select all

chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Mount the proc filesystem.

Code: Select all

mount /proc
Then try to do a manual upgrade

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
Note any errormessages and come back with them.

To exit the chroot environment do

Code: Select all

umount /proc
exit
umount /mnt
Lets hope this can sched some light on what has happened.

Bubba wouldn't load that image; the led keeps blinking for hours... I've used the complet install method and lost all data.

I'm not satisfied with the bubba now.

I can't use it as a backup device for windows, because of the very slow data speed (i'm comparing this with a normal external disc device) and the bubba solution doesn't look stable. I can't just put all my music here (about 80 G) and not make a backup off it on another disc (also because of the slow data speed between bubba and my windows machine).

The last backup i made off my music map on bubba took about 12 hours (80G) using Cobina Backup on my XP machine.

marcel23,

The rescue image does not change the led, sorry this is something i should have mentioned, from blinking to a solid lit state. If the complete install worked the rescue image most likely worked as well.

I can only apologize for the inconvenience. :(

I've tried several times to install that image, but even after waiting 4 hours for it to install, i couldn't login at the named ip adress..
