At first, I have to say thank you for the image. It is amazingly fast!

Not my stupid problem: I installed the image, change the IP address in /etc/network/interfaces and add the following nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf:

nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4


After, I reboot the Cubieboard and put in the ethernet cable. I can connect to the Cubieboard via internal network, but the DNS resolving fails. For example:

cubie@cubieez:~$ wget google.com
--2013-07-20 15:16:34--  http://google.com/
Resolving google.com (google.com)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `google.com'


Have any one a idea why it fails?

Can you tell meplease from where did you take the kernel for this version in order to recompile it?

Thanks,
Andrei

Hi,

here is the next challenge...
I am trying to mount a network share from my Windows Homeserver via cifs, it doesnt work, because there is an error:
Quotemount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device


It seems that the kernel doesnt support the cifs filesystem.
Any solutions ?


Recompile the Kernel :P I could upload my .config as I've done with A10 version.


Lets try  8)

I meant, can you upload your .config file ?
I'll recompile the kernel with cifs support.


I'll take this howto http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,472.0.html + drkbcn .config (as soon he's distribute the .config  ;) ) + a little bit of brain 2.0  ;D and play "try & error".

Can you traceroute to 8.8.8.8?
If not, maybe your internet connection is not OK.
I am using my router's local IP as nameserver (192.168.1.1).

My .config file for your own Kernel compilation :) (3.3.0 branch)

This image is an excelent work.

However i'm unable to put OpenVPN to work, since the kernel has no TUN module available (tun.ko).
How can i fix this?

Thanks.

amanz

Can you please write me the git repo for this kernel version?

Thanks

Everything is working now and the image is VERY fast!

Thank you very much drkbcn!

I know I ain't no Linux guru, but when you say to edit the script.bin file to change the monitor resolution and then putting it on the table do you mean writting it on that file like:

screen0_output_type=3 (I run the Cubie2 with HDMI)
screen_output_mode=5

Is this correct?

Apparently it ain't because upon rebooting I get no display at all.

PS: Can't find a fex editor for Windows no matter where I search, any help over here?
