Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (version 1.12)

Post by Gordon » 14 Mar 2019, 17:45


I've just released version 1.12 of the Bubbagen live-USB image for B3 on GitHub.

This is primarily a bugfix release from version 1.11 but it also contains some vital changes to some of the portage config files:
- /etc/portage/make.conf
- /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords/forked-daapd
- /etc/portage/package.mask/execjs
- /etc/portage/package.use/bubba-UI
- /etc/portage/package.use/forked-daapd
- /etc/portage/package.use/horde
- /etc/portage/package.use/roundcube
- /etc/portage/package.use/sysvinit
- /etc/portage/package.mask/polkit (systemd image only)

There are some minor environmental changes to dnsmasq, dovecot and postfix that existing users may like to inspect as well. If you updated to this new release using emerge you can find the default config files in /var/lib/bubba/bubba-default-config.tgz

Highlights included in this update:
- GCC 8.2
- PHP 7.2
- Perl 5.26

Sakaki publishes a binhost that can help you keep your instance of Bubbagen up to date. The Live-USB is not subscribed to that binhost, but you can add it yourself by referencing this topic. To fetch binaries from that host run emerge with `-g` or `--getbinpkg` option. Do note that because the Bubba UI requires specific USE flags on some packages emerge may disregard some of the available binaries on that binhost.

Known issues:
  • When changing the time zone the web interface may show you an incorrect time on some pages (the extensible clock on the right is actually javascript and thus should show your client's time rather than the B3's). To align them all you should restart the B3 (or at least apache2 and bubba-adminphp services).
  • Changing the network profile may completely destroy networking on the B3 if you have wifi enabled or added custom interfaces and/or bridges. If you need to change the profile please do so before making any changes to the default network setup and then never touch it again.
The supplied kernel is the current Gentoo LTS version 4.14.83. All packages have been brought up to date as of Mar 14, 2019 ¹)


¹) Some packages withheld due to patent restrictions or because the newer versions are incompatible with core Bubba functionality.

Note: installer issue

Post by Gordon » 17 Jun 2019, 14:48


I have been informed that this image has an issue with the installer if the harddrive in your B3 is smaller than 2.1TB. This has been corrected in the Bubba overlay. In case you are affected by the issue you should sync your portage tree and then re-emerge sys-apps/bubba-install

Code: Select all

emerge -1v sys-apps/bubba-install
Sorry for the inconvenience,
