Re: Excito B3 brand and remaining B3 stock purchased !

It is good to hear from you guys directly in this forum.

Now we all together can dream of a B4 with mSATA and USB3.0 one day.

Re: Software Update and Download

well, you might have already heard, but the original Excito company has filed bankruptcy and has been sold. This means, that there probably will not be any official updates to the "Excito Software Suite" running on your B3. However, since the B3 is based on a regular debian-distribution and you have...

Re: Minimal wheezy install images for b3

Remember that you can always easily "install" a new Image to the disk by simply connecting the disk to another linux machine, partitioning it by hand (and leaving your user-data untouched) and then extracting the archive to the new root-partition. You do not have to use the Excito-Method of booting ...

Re: Successful dist-upgrade to wheezy on a B3

I've made a minimal wheezy image (available here ) with a associated recent kernel (available here ). 99% of packages are updated through debian package source (only the kernel and button daemon to monitor the power button are specific if I remember correctly). You are only dependant on manual kern...

Re: Problem seeing my B3 when connected via 802.11ac

The B3 not supporting 802.11ac being the reason is absolute rubbish. It is not the B3's job to route network-traffic between wireless (be it any kind of transmission-technology) and wired but the router's. The B3 has no idea what your connection to it looks like beyond the node connected to its own ...

Re: Successful dist-upgrade to wheezy on a B3

Since I am also desperately trying to switch my B3 to a regular Debian, that can be updated with the normal package-sources. I also already flashed my U-Boot to support recent kernels. Is there any way to run a recent vanilla debian that can be easily updated through the regular sources (without req...

Re: uboot update needed.

usually you just have to replace "excito.org" with "mybubba.org".

In this case, there seems to be a bit of string-reformatting required, but the article is still there under a slightly different URL: http://wiki.mybubba.org/wiki/index.php? ... Arch_Linux

Re: Update UBOOT from OS

Yes. Just to be extremely precise (and for later reference): apt-get -y install mtd-utils flash_erase /dev/mtd0 0 0 mtd_debug write /dev/mtd0 0 $(stat --printf '%s' "<path to u-boot-kwb>") "<path to u-boot-kwb>" - flash_eraseall is deprecated in favor to flash_erase <mtddev> 0 0 - The stat command ...

Re: Minimal wheezy install images for b3

Now if only I had saved up and gotten a Bubba3... early enough. But with them going to Canada now, the still high price, shipping and extra taxes (not to speak of the inconvenience of customs formalities) it's not worth it for me even after saving up enough eventually. I see one offering for a LAN ...

Re: Arch Linux on B3

The bootloader resides on the flash memory on the motherboard. It will load any uImage it finds on the first partition of the first sata disk[1]. You need nothing in the disk's MBR like you do for a desktop computer. I would like to add that it has to be an ext2-Filesystem. Ext3 works too, but I kn...

Re: Update UBOOT from OS

With "erasing the partition" you mean the flash_eraseall-command, right? And just to make sure: These are the correct commands, with mtd_debug instead of nandwrite: apt-get -y install mtd-utils flash_eraseall /dev/mtd0 mtd_debug write /dev/mtd0 0 $(stat --printf '%s' "u-boot.kwb") <path to u-boot-kw...

Re: uboot update needed.

Debian Squeeze was safe, because the latest available OpenSSL-Version from the squeeze-repos did not yet include the Heartbeat-Extension, that was discovered to be vulnerable earlier this year.

Re: Minimal wheezy install images for b3

Hi, it is me again. Since the release of kernel 3.15 (with a workaround for the buggy uboot) draws near, I was wondering whether you have any plans on building a new image? Or can you give me the instructions to do so myself? When I search for tutorials and howtos on the subject of building kernels ...
