Re: Excito B3 cannot start after Power failure

Hi Isabel can you copy the Gentoo live USB image onto a USB stick and boot your B3 with that? It should work whether or not your internal hard drive (on the B3) is operational., and will (if you have a WiFi-enabled B3) allow you to log in via the WiFi interface (the SSID is "b3"). Please note that i...

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

For masquerading you'll need something like the setup on this page . You should also lock down the ports you don't want to have open on eth0, particularly if this is going to be an externally visible server. If you have a WiFi b3 you can install / build hostapd and then bridge eth1 and wlan0 togethe...

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

MouettE has specified multiple times that there are no dhcp-server on this Jessie-b3, but does that mean that I have to setup a dhp-server on my laptop, in order to give the b3 an ip-address, that I can ssh into? Hi lognok, yes, based on what MouettE has said and your journald output, you are runni...

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

Hi lognok, in that case, if you use the Arch live USB to mount /dev/sda1 (containing the failing Jessie system partition), you should be then be able to query the contents of the (Jessie) systemd journal, using "journalctl -D <path to mounted journal dir>"; and from this determine if a boot service ...

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

Hi again Here are my latest attempts at getting Jessie running on my b3. What works and gives b3 an IP (so I can ssh into it): Gentoo live 1.8.0 Arch live 1.2.0 ... I'm starting to think that it's a hardware issue. Maybe it's related to my broken SATA port? Hi lognok, As you've got the Arch live us...

RedSleeve v7 live-USB for B3 released (Linux 4.5.0)

Hello, Eagle-eyed forum user Psynapse pm'd me about a month ago, asking if, since the RHEL-like ARM distro RedSleeve appeared to be armv5tel based , might it be possible to create a B3 image? Well, I'm pleased to say the answer was 'yes', and that I've just released version 1.0.0 of the live-USB ima...

Re: Rescue B2 Disk

Hi, one other thing you could try is booting with the Gentoo live-USB for the B2 . The image uses UUID-based disk naming, so should boot even if your internal HDD is no longer being recognized as /dev/sda on the B2. There is also a small 'blinktest' image (instructions here ) that you can use to qui...

Re: NAT on Bubba|2 running Debian jessie, Linux bubba 3.18.2

Also, if your application doesn't specifically require Debian, you might try the Gentoo live USB for the B2, it has the necessary iptables kernel modules precompiled (config here). You can run it without harming any existing Debian install on your B2's HDD.
Best, sakaki

Re: easyfind-client (Mouette)

From running gdb on your code, what appears to be happening is this. Consider the lines: read(fd, buf, sizeof(buf)); followed by buflen=strlen(buf); and then ultimately offset+=buflen if (buflen<64) offset++; lseek(fd, offset, SEEK_SET); in the case where an environment string with length > sizeof(b...

Re: easyfind-client (Mouette)

Made the suggested changes, but it still didn't work. I think the program below should do the trick however - it appears to print the key correctly on our B3s and (rev 2) B2, but YMMV (is there anyone out there with a rev 1 B2 who could try this out? paulchany?). Compile with gcc and then run a.out ...

Re: easyfind-client (Mouette)

Hi, FWIW on our (rev 2 hardware) B2, running the current Gentoo live-USB for B2 , it is /dev/mtd0 defined in /etc/fw_env.config, thus: # MTD definition for Bubba|2 # MTD device name Device offset Env. size Flash sector size /dev/mtd0 0x050000 0x002000 0x010000 /dev/mtd0 0x060000 0x002000 0x010000 Ru...

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

Warning - long and somewhat off-topic post follows ^-^ Uncertain how to interpret that. From the links you provided it seems a hacker would need to get to the B3 multiple times, with you accessing it in between and entering the password which could then be read in plain text by the returning hacker...

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

That is correct. The hardware crypto enabled version of openssl that you need for it is part of my bubba overlay for Gentoo, as is the conclusion that the hardware crypto engine does aes-cbc. This cypher has been disabled with current versions of openssl, but I don't know for what reason. The cyphe...

Re: Practical, up-to-date (2015) use-cases for a B3?

Hi Klingan - the B3 has more than sufficient MIPs for normal 'home server' tasks, and, as others have noted, is a pretty resilient and power-efficient little box. We have four of the things at home (don't ask!), all with SSDs so totally silent in operation (you do need to be careful about the choice...

Gentoo: current issue with crossdev (bug 562460) [fixed]

If you have recently tried using crossdev to build a cross-compilation toolchain for your B2 or B3 on a Gentoo PC (as described in my wiki posts here and here ) you will probably have found that it dies, with the following error: * Emerging cross-gcc-stage1 ... * gcc failed :( This is due to bug 562...
