Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy Did the trick. I had the same experience. With iptables-legacy selected my old masquerade rules works fine. Before giving in to the legacy approach though, I made a feeble attempted to migrate to nftables. Unfortunately it appears that th...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

I'm quite happy to join the choir for praise of Mouette in this thread. I'm grateful for your awesome work on the b3 Debian port. Thank you! I had an almost flawless upgrade experience. I used the command apt full-upgrade rather than apt-get dist-upgrade . It was somewhat surprising that the old ker...

Serial console access

Today I once again found myself wanting serial console access to my b3. While the rescue boot usb image works fine, I imagine that it is a bit more convenient to just connect to the console via usb. Anyone know if the follwing converter could work, as an alternative to the one mentioned on the wiki?...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

Those names you refer to are the so-called 'Predictable Network Interface Naming' names. That has actually been around for quite some time now, at least 5 years, and if it had applied to the B3 you would have already encountered that issue. ... As it stands, eth0 and eth1 are defined as such in the...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

I haven't tried yet, but hope to do so real soon now. I'm a bit hesitant because of the move away from legacy network interface names. If I understand the release notes correctly eth0 and eth1 will be replaced by some really weird looking names. root@b3:~# udevadm test-builtin net_id /sys/class/net/...

Re: B2: Debian removed jessie powerpc repos - what now?

Debian keeps archives of their old non-supported releases, even after they're removed from the regular repositories. You should be able to use the archives as sources for apt. https://www.debian.org/distrib/archive I'm sure you're already aware, but you should obviously not expose your bubba to the ...

Re: xxxmyownb3.com with letsencrypt

Good to hear that you solved the problem, Puma. The fact that Letsencrypt does not publish the ip-numbers of their validation hosts is a security feature. It makes man in the middle attacks of the validation process harder. If you want certificates for hosts that you really do not want to expose to ...

Re: xyx.myownb3.com with letsencrypt

As you state myownb3.com is just a dynamic DNS provider. This allows you to focus entirely on the error message from certbot.

Re: B3 replacement

One thing we haven't mentioned in this thread, about exit strategies from the B3, is what sort of community there is around thealternative devices. A quick search showed that there is a small community around the Turris omnia at https://forum.turris.cz/about I mention this because the community here...

Re: B3 replacement

If you're looking for a NAS for 3.5" drives, the Gnubee 2 is probably a decent alternative to the B3, although it's not pretty to look at and lacks wifi. Gnubee also offer a variant for 2.5" drives. https://www.crowdsupply.com/gnubee/personal-cloud-2 Otherwise the Turris Omnia ticks a lot of boxes. ...

Re: Debian stretch (9) image 1.0 released for B3

Here's a brief report of a successful Stretch installation using this image. It worked flawlessly. Thanks! :) I made a fresh install, configured install.ini to wipe the drive and create a root partition of 20 GB. I also configured a static ip on the LAN interface using install.ini. Everything worked...

Re: Debian 9 stretch

Now, the actual stretch release uses a 4.9 kernel, not 4.10[0]. Will the B3 stretch ...

Re: Debian jessie image 1.0 released for Bubba|2 / B3

Well, now when the WD Blue disk is installed I won't change it. Just check the power consumption on the new drive compared to the original. The WD Green I have from a B3 has the model number WD10EARS. AFAICT the max power consumption on that drive is 4.1 Watt. A 500 GB Blue might be either 6 W or 3...

Re: "Portable" version of Logitech Media Server (B3 only)

Debian users will probably want to put it in /usr/share, others in /opt. Gordon, perhaps you meant /usr/local? I've never heard of anyone promoting /usr/share as a location for locally installed software on Debian. I cant see that the FHS recommends using /usr/share for that purpose either. I'd rec...
