Nice to hear some good setup stories! It might open us new ideas for using CT. :D

I am also working on a post setup and testing access point mode(working well so far) and struggling to get my scanner buttons working - http://sourceforge.net/projects/scanbd No luck with that :'(

No news about gmac yet.

Hi Slovenia,

Really appreciate your passion on developing the CT image...
Btw, some people told me that Realtime kernel is better to use in CAS env., Can you give me some advices how to install the RT kernel into your image?

thx

That looks really interesting :D I got given a Kodak ESP 1.2 AIO recently, but without PSU - When I get one ordered I can test for you if you like :D Providing there are Kodak drivers for Linux.. this looks like it will do the trick: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cupsdriverkodak/

No news about gmac yet.

It's not too much of an issue at the moment... Streaming works really well, just copying large amounts of files is very slow... I can plug the drive into USB3 and do a direct copy on a local machine for large files for now.

My scanner is working well (Cannon Lide 60) - i can scan with Sane from CLI but triggering some actions with scanner buttons would be awesome  8) - scan to file / mail / archive, ... I don't know where is the problem at the moment. :-[ If you are going to play with it - any feedback would be helpful. :D

I will get the PSU ordered on eBay and have a play as soon as it comes through.


Btw, I edited the last post to include this link, but here it is again: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=992706

It's a daemon that uses cpulimit... could be very useful for these little ARMs. I think I will try it when I get MiniDLNA up and running... Also NFS which I know can be a little CPU intensive.

EDIT: Wrong link corrected.

EDIT2: HIGHLY recommend the daemon.... nothing canes the hind legs off my CPU now.. before something like a large apt-get could max out the CPU for a bit... not now. It's also keeping MiniDLNA in it's place ;D But see other post with changes to script.

Interesting project. I haven't had a look to deep yet, but how customizable is the build from scratch? It would be nice if I could build one image for all my cubies.

I'd term it a 'fully optimised blank canvas' ready to do whatever you want with it :) I've turned mine into an headless eco server. Which is now serving:

Samba (Via OpenMediaVault)
NFS (Via OpenMediaVault)
iTunes Server (forked-daap)
DLNA Server (Universal Media Server/Mediatomb - No longer MiniDLNA, was buggy)
Airprint/General Print Server (CUPS)

Also have:
VNC Server (tightvnc)
Webmin (never know when you might want it)
Xfce desktop (for VNC), which runs very well.

Depends what you want to do with yours...

I'm just about using my cubietrack in the same way as you,  plus a few additional servers like tvheadend and a torrent server.
I do want to use the interface pin,  but they don't make it easy for you, I need to get hold of a socket with 2.2 mm pitch.
My torrent sever stops working all the time so need resetting every day,  but other than that eveything is working well.

Wise choice. I think the Cubietruck makes a really good home server. It's really living up to expectations and it's a bit of a talking point when people pop round as most of my friends and family know I'm always playing with some sort of new toy/gadget. :D

I hadn't considered using it as a torrent server mainly because my laptop gets turned on in the morning and is on most of the day. Once torrents are completed I just drag them onto the share where my Pi with OpenELEC picks them up.

I'm afraid I wouldn't know where to begin with the GPIO pins, it's not something I have ever played with. I've seen some seriously cool stuff in the way of home automation and mood lighting though... see here: http://raspberry-at-home.com/ maybe I will have a look at some point :D

EDIT: For a bit of fun, I changed the MOTD....



Ok, couldn't resist this either :P

I think the raspberry as its advantages compared to the cubietruck when using the gpio pin for interfacing , but they both have their roles.
I`ve moved from the sheevaplug which haven`t done bad , as it`s took me about 4 year before anything as come along which as come close to me thinking about replacing it for a new and better model.

I'll bare that in mind when I have a play with the pins. I just found that site and thought it had some really cool ideas. I know of sheevaplugs- I've only heard good things about them although I haven't used one myself. They use Marvell Kirkwood CPUs IIRC-  Nice units, good throughput.

Btw, idk if you have an iOS device, but if you do may I recommend an app called FileExplorer to use with your Cubie. I was really disappointed to find a lack of decent/working DAAP/DLNA clients for iOS (ESPECIALLY since DAAP is an Apple creation) but even though this app doesn't work with DAAP/DLNA, it works with all the typical local file sharing protocols (Smb/Nfs etc) and has a really nice interface - I'm using it to stream music to my iPhone while typing this and the other half uses it on the iPad to access HD video content.

Here is a screenshot of the phone:

oooow  ,Sorry I`m a bit of a apple hater , I don`t like the idea of any company patenting a basic idea like rounded corners or a letter of the alphabet like I ,  They lost a lot of friends when they started on the road of "sue you mate" .
I went down the android route and I use "ES file explorer" on all my devices , which sounds very much the same , I use it to watch my movies etc on the cubie using Samba .

One thing you can say about the sheevaplug it was super stable , I`ve had almost a full years uptime before a big power cut .
The only time it`s been off line was due to other problems , like power cuts , the psu failing power the hard drive .

bugfixes are mostly  relevant for compile / install part
