gentoo-b3-overlay and sakaki-tools permanent errors in portage tree

gentoo-b3-overlay and sakaki-tools permanent errors in portage tree As of last week (2022/31) the Gentoo devs have retired ebuild EAPI 5. This causes permanent errors in the portage tree on several of the abandoned ebuilds that were created by Sakaki and were written using this EAPI. Note that this...

Re: Buster image ?

Did you try connect to the fallback address (192.168.10.1)? Just to state the obvious, your workstation must hold an address in the 192.168.10.x range as well to make that attempt successful.

Re: Excito in bankruptcy

This was back in 2014, what's the current situation looking like? Hardware building rights were passed to Rodeus. As far as I'm aware no successor is planned. Official software maintenance seized but this should not be an issue if the unit is not exposed directly to the internet. Alternatives for t...

Re: Debian bullseye (11) image 1.0 released for B3

You can verify with

Code: Select all

zcat /proc/config.gz | grep IWL
I suspect you will find it is not included as this is a fairly new driver and typically while upgrading kernels you reference the config of the old kernel and only add stuff if some core service requires it.

Re: Buster image ?

The u-boot update is only required if you want to install a larger disk or one that uses newer firmware. I'm not sure how you established that there is a hwclock issue, but it is not unlikely that it broke all together. It has on one of my B3s and I counter that by syncing the clock at boot time. On...

Re: Help with smart garage openers, anyone?

Confusingly, this forum is not about home automation in general but about a product named `HomeAutomation` that was written as a web based graphic user interface for the `Tellstick` device, a 433MHz operated radio device that can monitor and mimic remote controls using that same frequency, e.g. ligh...

Re: Pi-Hole on B3 with Buster

Interesting. It claims to replace dnsmasq but I suppose it will not be a plug-in replacement. I should definitely have a look at that.

Re: myownb3.com problems

Oh... That makes perfect sense. Yes, various encryption standards have been marked as unsafe and deprecated over the years and although openssl still contains the code for it they have fairly recently set these standards to `disabled` by default. I experience similar issues when trying to connect to...

Re: myownb3.com

I don't really know what you mean by `i cannot update the latest software`. The latest official software is some ten years old, I'm pretty confident that you have it already. Everything newer is experimental, not provided by the manufacturer, and incompatible with the original software meaning that ...

Re: myownb3.com

Okay. There is good news and there is bad news. The good news is that there no (external) issues preventing you to access the easyfind server. The bad news is that the Perl code (LWP::UserAgent) fails, probably because of an encryption incompatibility. Since you already have easyfind enabled and onl...

Re: myownb3.com

Right... Haven't used the original OS for quite a while

Try `wget -S https://easyfind.excito.org/extip.php` instead

Note: This will not print the web page return to stdout but download it as `extip.php`. Use the `cat` command to view the return.

Unable to replicate here as well. That said, running the original perl script gives me an error as well though not the same as reported.

Re: myownb3.com

Log into the B3 GUI as admin and go to `settings - identity`. Click on `update Easyfind`

Alternatively: open an SSH connection to the B3 and execute `/usr/lib/web-admin/easyfind.pl`

Re: B4 =]

FWIW The Feroceon SoC was `old` already when the B3 was developed. Excito still favoured it though because faster CPUs as a rule generate more heat and that doesn't fit well with the design objectives: passive cooling and a hard disk in the same compact enclosure. As it stands I have no complaints a...
