Re: OBD 2 success

I have one and it works great on my Samsung S3.

The instant MPG on my car is a bit scary though.

Re: Removing bracket... and ground?

Isn't the bracket also the heat sink?

Maybe watch for it getting a bit hot.

Re: cifs samba mounting.

What happens if you try: mount -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 to make the stick writeable? And change the path reference in my bit above from /mnt/usb to just /mnt Not sure how the LMS DB would handle FAT32 on a stick, but I can't see any reason why a ext3 formatted stick wouldn't work. There is possible t...

Re: cifs samba mounting.

Right, off the top of my head (I don't have a joggler near me) Assuming the usb stick is mounted as /mnt/usb. It would be something like: cd /media/gforums/apps/squeezeboxserver* cp -Rvp Cache /mnt/usb mv Cache Cache.old ln -s /mnt/usb/Cache . ls -la (Should show the symlink in the directory) then r...

Re: cifs samba mounting.

Are you running out of space for the LMS database cache directory during the scan? Mine on my separate server is 2.2Gigs for around 700 albums. That's with every track containing artwork.

If your setup is similar it could be too much for the joggler.

Just a thought.

Re: cifs samba mounting.

One thing to be aware of, if you are indexing large amounts of files with tagged artwork is the size of the database. The artwork.db file on my LMS server on a separate linux box is 2 gig. You might want to move this off to a mounted memory stick and sym link it if it gets too big. or maybe even a m...

Re: cifs samba mounting.

Would it be worthwhile me popping this on the PnP III build instead of the slightly new version it sticks on? Seems a bit daft to run a newer version if it's unnecessary and fails. There are a huge amount more commands in the newer busybox. There is a risk that if it is removed and replaced with th...

cifs samba mounting.

Hi I found the cause of the "failed: Invalid argument" error when mounting cifs mounts. The newer version of busybox I have on my jogglers, doesn't seem to have cifs support. The older version I have mounts my smb server fine. BusyBox v1.19.4 (2012-03-09 19:01:08 CET) multi-call binary. Fails. but: ...

Re: Prevent automatic O2 updates??

I didn't install the update blocker on mine, but I do have O200.openpeak.co.uk blocked in the hosts file and on my DNS server. It hasn't updated so far. My other one is switched off just in case.

Re: PnP III for pre/post OpenPeak update Jogglers - Get it h

I'm don't think the dhcp problems are a PNPIII issue. I have 2 jogglers, one with PNPIII and one with the old Gforums PNP. Neither have the new openpeak update. they stopped talking to my dhcp server at around the same time a couple of months ago. I thought it was an issue with my dhcp server and ga...

Re: Changing DNS servers on BuZz's distros

It probably does. I only have one ubuntu box which runs xbmc and I de-ubuntufied it years ago.

Anyway try this:

Edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf

and change:

supersede domain-name "yourdomain.com"

prepend domain-name-server 8.8.8.8, 8.8.8.4

Re: Changing DNS servers on BuZz's distros

Is it not the standard Unix way of editing /etc/resolv.conf ?

i.e

nameserver 8.8.8.8

You'll probably want to "sudo root" beforehand (its a while since I used ubuntu).
