Re: Bubba B1 failure mode

Frederik might be on track here. The clicking sound could also be from the head park mechanism. Either way my guess would be that it supplies insufficient power to the hard disk which is probably not due to the B1 itself but rather its PSU.

Re: myownb3.com problems

It's becoming harder to support older encryption methods with every upgrade of openssl and they have been quite active the last months. I have in fact had some local breakages as well on account of a self-signed certificate that I use for my email server and apparently is now considered unsafe becau...

Re: Anyone installed HomeAssistant on B3?

Would advise against it. HA is python based and several years back now I had some python scripts running to integrate Evohome zone based heating into Domoticz. From firing up the script to poll for data from the website and enter this into Domotiz this script needed 40+ seconds to complete. I now pe...

Bubbagen live-USB for B3 version 1.15 (Linux 5.15.41 Stable)

Hi, I've just released version 1.15 of the Bubbagen live-USB image for B3 on GitHub. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gordonb3/cache/master/Bubba/bubbagen-screenshots.jpg There are no substantial differences with the previous version, however the Gentoo devs have decided to drop support for their p...

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...
