Re: New In Box Bubba 3's for sale to USA

The eBay USA reseller is Mr. Gates (UdfnYkyOj7F).

Today, both have a 3 TB Western Digital Red NAS (older design) drives. The latest supported ub...

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (version 1.14)

Gordon - Thank you for your work on Bubbagenb3 version 1.14 I appreciate your work on support for Bubba overlay (simple, lightweight). Both of my B3 mini servers (one with WiFi) are now running Bubbagenb3 version 1.14.5 (systemd). You noted that with the Gentoo 5.10.27 LTS base OS, you added WireGua...

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (version 1.14)

The SSH server is configured to allow root login using password `gentoob3` Thank you. I think I will install Gentoo (Bubbagen Live) on this “new” B3 server. I like your addition of the historic B3 web page functionality on Gentoo. I have found that this SMB function on Gentoo to be superior to othe...

Re: Bubbagen live-USB for B3 updated (version 1.14)

Once booted, you can use your browser to connect to the B3 through http://b3, where you should see the familiar Excito B3 admin. The default username and password for the administrator account is: Username: admin Password: admin == Gordon, The B3 web server page worked fine, with default password. ...

Re: New In Box Bubba 3's for sale to USA

Mr. Gates (UdfnYkyOj7F) still has a few Excito B3 servers (New Jersey, USA) still listed on eBay. He started this Thread 4 years ago (2017). He only has one (1) LAN-version left (I bought the other one, last week). These units have the Old UBOOT (2 TB hard drive limit), so you need to be comfortable...

Re: Bricked my B3 after u-boot flash [Solved]

I acquired a NOS Excito B3 (no wireless) last week. Given the age of this B3 server, it likely had the old version UBOOT, that would not support 3 TB or greater HD. == I successfully installed the Debian 10 (Buster) kernel, created by Charles (MouettE), yesterday. Pre-configuring a static LAN in ins...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (Linux 4.9.72 LTS, profile 17.0)

If you like the Bubba front-end, it should install on the B2 as well. The straight forward `old` method to get the packages is to use `layman` to add the overlay. Since you already have a B3 with Bubbagen you can however also rsync the following for the `new` method: 1. /etc/portage/repos.conf/bubb...

Sakaki - Thank you for this work. I pulled out my Bubba|2 , retired after I acquired a B3 (and installed Gordon’s image) a few years ago. Found a spare WD Red 2 TB drive and used a San Disk Cruzer Fit 16 GB (USB 2.0) for your gentoo-b2 image. Your instructions were helpful. Set the date, after hard ...

Was that related to the `bindist` flag issue reported earlier or did you run into something else?
YES, the install error message seems to be related to ‘bindist’.

genup USE="-bindist" appears to have resolved, with a couple of minor errors.
