Re: Debian buster (10) image 1.0 released for B3

I've released a new version 1.1 of the image which fixes this permission issue and includes debian 10.6 with security updates as of now.

As an aside, is it normal in later versions of Debian to see so many tmpfs mounts, especially the /run prefixed ones?
I don't really now, seems legit to me.

Re: Debian buster (10) image 1.0 released for B3

While I build a new version (it will take some time) you can fix the path ownership with these commands (run as root): chown root:root / chown root:root /etc chown root:root /etc/systemd chown root:root /etc/systemd/system chown root:root /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants chown root:root /...

Re: Debian buster (10) image 1.0 released for B3

I followed the instructions to the letter (many times). The installation seems to go well each time but when I login I see the same issue that @guyran reported where /etc and /usr are owned by the excito user. Now I can change this recursively with chown and chgrp but the more worrying part is the ...

Re: B3 as a security camera streamer ?

I can build a kernel with video modules that you could test. If that's successful I'll push to to the official repo. Let me know !

Re: Upgrade all the way from squeeze :D

It's theorically possible BUT you will probably face a number of problems you'll have to fix yourself. The hardest part will be squeeze -> jessie because you'll need to remove all the excito packages first. Jessie was the first one I did and it had a couple of issues I never fixed beacause we moved ...

Re: B3 as gateway, throughput issues ...

I'd say that it's expected. Remember that the B3 hardware is over 10 years old, even if the network interfaces are gigabit, routing in done by the OS. I don't know however if others have done detailed benchmark on the network speeds but I never had tremendous performance.

Re: How many B3's out there ?

The flash routine for installing the "3TB patch" is however also running in some kind of stripped down OS started by the existing u-boot. Either way, it seemed buggy and I decided not to chance it unless it became really necessary. The flashing procedure does not use is no stripped down OS, it's do...

Re: How many B3's out there ?

Charles (MoueTTe on this forum) was working on u-boot several years back, but I don't know whether that was really a success. I have indeed tried to upgrade u-boot on the B3. Latest version was based on u-boot 2013.01.01 and full sources (with the b3 patches) are available on github . I tried to us...

Re: How many B3's out there ?

Hello,

I have one at home, still running, plus 1 b2 and one b3 for dev. Also in the easyfind system, we have 200 entries updated in the last year. Not all B3 have easyfind active though, and some run on fixed IP.

IF you do not have a SATA drive (up to 2 TB) installed in your Bubba Two,
THEN the install.log will show this error.
The image and the installation script are designed to work with a SATA disk.

As for the other debian images, this image is constructed from 3 different projects : a sid OS image itself, an install/rescue system and an installer script. More...

Re: Debian buster (10) image 1.0 released for B3

Quick update, I have made good progress on the debian unstable port for the B2. The install/rescue system has been updated, I have a working 5.4 kernel and I'm currently building the image. We should have something working in the next couple of days.
