Raspberry Pi / Raspberry pi 2 vs cubietruck
July 21, 2015, 01:19:06 pm
Just wondering if anyone has done any speed tests between the two.

Currently using a cubietruck as the centre piece of my home network.  Apache / mysql / plex server / ampache / bitsync.

I was using an old raspberry pi 1 as a simple samba file share only.  Plex would read files from the raspberry and steam via the cubietruck to a nowtv plex client

All works perfect.

I want to add another usb hardrive to the network.  Cubie and raspberry usb are full.  Didn't fancy a usb hub so brought a raspberry pi 2 which has 4 usb ports.

Before i just swap the raspberry pi's I'm kind of wondering if the pi 2 is faster than the Cubie.  I know the memory is less but never saw it go over 700 meg used anyhow.

Thanks

Rich

Rip little 2.4 install.  Final 8 came out today and updated.   Boots up but my apache and php no longer works.


Fixed with

Sudo apt-get -f install
Sudo apt-get autoremove

Php working.  Just noticed though that samba not working - its asking for a password!

 Hi

Maybe silly question but I'm still using version 2.4 and install all updates from wheezy when prompted.  Does this mean I'm on the latest os version.

Any benefit in installing a higher version if all works?

Current uptime 51 days and counting.  Would be higher but the odd update requires a reboot.

Thanks

Only used android for ten minutes when I got my cubietruck but did try movies on smb shares and worked straight away with no extra software.

Sounds like lack of power when plugging in the second one.  Try running them through a powered USB hub.

Will share for a while on my seedbox.  Don't need the space.  Getting errors from the tracker though.

I use one of the below.

http://www.bmstores.co.uk/products/optimum-4-usb-mains-charger-285307

£4.99 with 4 USB ports.  Only using two of them though.  One for cubietruck, one for an extra 750gb.  Saving 2 more for my raspberry pi.

Just broke my raspberry record.  The pi always restarted around the 30 day mark.

Thanks.

Use the windows app "image writer" and install directly to sdcard.  The image is the same format as using the DD command in Linux.

Install to nand / data from the sdcard.

I use the VGA wheezy version.  SSH on as default no monitor actually needed.  About 1.8gb free from boot.

The sata port was the main reason I went for a cubietruck last month.  Nice how it slots under it with miniminal wires.  Would of brought something else ....

You already found them. Your linux does boot on cubieboard2 (cb2) as well as on Cubietruck (ct). So you have two uEnv. For each board one.

Guess what is the right one for you....


Thanks thought as much.  Tried changing both uEnv.cb2 and uEnv.ct but no joy on my existing system setup.

Then used another sdcard, installed a new 2.4 image, booted up as a new install with sata and USB plugged and and it started no problems.

A simple sudo fdisk -l showed the sata as sdb1 and USB as sda1.  Changed the uEnv.cb2 and uEnv.ct again to sdb1 and it worked.

Yeah.  Then a quick change to /etc/fstab for auto mounting.

Thanks all for the tips.
