Hi slovenia,

I am interested in updating from 1.9 to 2.0. For past updates you have provided update packages for manual updating to the newer version. Would this also be possible for the newest version?

Would be very grateful!

Longahr


I'm interest too. But is this a critical update? Tnx

I used root for login and 1234 for password and got to the root@cubie:~#

I'm assuming that's where I need to be, right? What's the next step to get the image on NAND?


Follow this instructions.  8)

QuoteThe only way to get this to NAND is to write it to SD card (with this tool for example) and than transfer it to the NAND with a script which is included in the image. It's located in the root's home directory, default when you log-in. It's not executable so you should do: chmod +x nand-install.sh before executing it. There might be troubles while transfering image to NAND but we have a workaround - read first post and check the thread.

I had used v1.7 in the past. Now is v1.9 out.

How to update? Is a update needed or comes all updates via apt ?


No you can't update via apt. If you want to update just use this commands:


cd /
wget http://cubie.nobrainz.de/downloads/update-1.8-1.9.tgz
tar xvfz update-1.8-1.9.tgz

login as root than execute:

cd /
wget http://cubie.nobrainz.de/downloads/update-1.8-1.9.tgz
tar xvfz update-1.8-1.9.tgz



Tnx! I did it, but now I'm having some issues with the autostart of openvpn service. In fact it stopped to start automatically at the reboot. I don't know why.   :-\

EDIT:
Solved with updating rc.d
update-rc.d openvpn enable

To use the update should I just boot with the microSD then copy the "update-1.8-1.9.tgz" directories to the nand?

I think not!  :-[

Thanks. I will create an update later today or latest in a day or two ...


You are the man!  ;D

Hey, I noticed that you released a new version. Will you release also the update file, like in 1.8 version?

If not, which is the procedure to backup my system configurations (users,services and etc) and put all in the new version 1.9?

Like always, thank you for your job and your regular updates! 8)

Hi guys, I'm running the version 1.7 on the nand. Now I want to upgrade to the 1.8. Should I just write the image on the sd card and restart the nand-install script? I will loose my actual configuration doing this?

Hi guys, I'm glad to see this thread still alive!  8)

I made a small test with just running the services "openvpn" & "noip". I got 15 clients attached to my vpn, and the system is very stable, I just use 40mb on 1948mb of ram and the cpu load is always under the 10%. That's a big difference respect lubuntu, because with the same configuration on lubuntu I was using 340mb on 1948 of ram and the cpu load was around 15%. With this load the temperature is around 35 C° on a heat room and around 31 C° during the night.
Anyway I started hating the tight black case. That poor board is breathless!!! ;D So I wonder to make my own case. I looked into my spare components, and I found something interisting. I took a board from an all in one water cooling, that have a fan control and a temp sensors that I can put on the cpu heat sink. I also took a plastic case (that one for elettrical linking in a house), where I should put the board.
I want to make square window on the top of the case and put a big fan (12cm) with a very slow rotation. Than I want to put the power surge into the case for having all in order with few cables.
However it's all still in my mind. I have to figure out a couple of things! XD
I'll upload the photo when I'll do it. In the meanwhile I'll show you the spares I got.

Thank you all for writing here, especially slovenia for his big help!  ;D

QuoteImage is made for micro SD card. The only way to get this to NAND is to write it to SD card (with this tool for example) and than transfer it to the NAND with a script which is included in the image. It's located in the root's home directory, default when you log-in. It's not executable so you should do: chmod +x nand-install.sh before executing it.

Thank you! I did it. I didn't have any problems running the nand-install.sh script because I already had lubuntu on the nand. The system with your image is very light and really better than lubuntu. I didn't test the cpu with the full load yet, but I saw the temperature with the command
Quotecat /sys/devices/platform/sunxi-i2c.0/i2c-0/0-0034/temp1_input
it's around 35 C° (it shows 34600, I assumed it means 34,6 C°).
I think it's not too high for a cubietruck in his tight case, but I have no experience with ARM cpu's temperature. In any case I'll put an external tachymetric fan just for safe.
I will be following always your main thread for any news of your great work!  8)
Thanks again! ;)

Upsss I thing I'm too noob to understand how write it to the nand. I downloaded your image (vga) and I got a zip file with the raw image. Now with phoenixtools how should I flash it? It accept just .img files.
Sorry for my silly questions!  :'(

Maybe I should use this?

Thank you for your tip! :D  Anyway I just saw that you made a very interisting image running debian server with the kernel you told me. So I decided to say good bye to lubuntu server (it little sucks  :-X) and install your image that seems really fits my needs and my purpose.  8) I hope I will not have such problems to install it on the nand. So I will post the temperature during the system load to look if a fan it's really necessary with the tight case.By the way while I read the features I was more convinced to try it, it looks so cool! ;D Thank you very much for your work!

Hi all guys! I have a cubietruck with the original black case. I noticed that there is a space for a fan. I was wondering if it's usefull install a fan there with a rpm control. I use cubietruck for a personal vpn and the system isn't very loaded (10% cpu usage, 20% ram usage). I have just the "classic" heatsink on the CPU. I also would like to put a termal sensor on the heatsink, because lm-sensors doesn't found any sensors.

What do you advice to me? It's a good idea put a fun for my load system on the tight case? Or maybe I can easy leave the cubietruck there without nothing using it 24/7.

Thank you all!  8)

P.S
(sorry for my english)  :-[
