Re: Squeezebox Touch for 153.00GBP

That was an exaggeration :-) - I had a Joggler that developed a fault with its internal flash memory. I can wholeheartedly recommend getting one but running Ubuntu on it from a USB stick.

Re: USB Partition

Thanks, all working now.

EDIT - when I rebooted & entered "sudo btrfsctl -r max /" I got an error message "ioctl:: Invalid argument"

Re: USB Partition

Another option would be to "grow" the btrfs partition. from the joggler open up a terminal and do sudo bash -c "OFFSET=`parted -m /dev/sda unit s print | grep ^3 | cut -d: -f 2`; parted /dev/sda -- unit s rm 3 mkpart primary btrfs $OFFSET -1s" then reboot and open up a terminal again and do sudo bt...

Re: Dead Joggler

Thanks for the info. If I open my Joggler that will invalidate the guarantee! Plus I don't really rate my ability with a soldering iron :-)

Re: Squeezebox Touch for 153.00GBP

Yes, the screen size is a bit of a turn-off! I reckon I'll stick with my Jogglers & try to use them with USB drives to avoid wearing out the internal flash. It would be good if someone knew how to replicate the native OS onto a USB stick.

Re: Squeezebox Touch for 153.00GBP

Yes, I alternate between Ubuntu & the native OS but I found that the native OS was a bit quicker & more finger-friendly. I have a right-angled USB lead so the size of the memory stick (I use an SD card in a card reader) isn't an issue. Jolicloud would have been almost as good if Squeezeplay could ha...

Squeezebox Touch for 153.00GBP

I'm mighty tempted by the offer of a Squeezebox Touch (blemished box) at the Logitech website http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/736/7348?ci=0 using the code bjmwq6gby It's 169.00GBP but there is a potential 9% back with Quidco which makes it around 153.00GBP. This might sound like heresy but I've been g...

Dead Joggler

After repeated bouts of needing to be reflashed cos of a failure to boot, one of my Jogglers has finally bitten the dust. It gets stuck at the O2 screen & won't even boot from an Ubuntu stick. My guess is that the internal flash memory has failed but I cannot explain why it won't boot from a USB sti...

Re: Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick ) for the O2 Joggler.

Thanks - can you help with which fsck commands to run? I'm a bit hazy after having had a look on the Ubuntu forums. I haven't had any crashes or freezing of the OS.

Re: Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick ) for the O2 Joggler.

I keep having a problem with applets disappearing from the top panel. When I boot the Joggler I often get an error message saying that an applet (e.g. clock, notification area) could not be found & suggesting that I delete it. Anyone else get this? I just need to keep adding them back to the panel.

Thanks, I had already tried joggler as a password but it didn't occur to me to use it as a username too! All working fine now.

Re: Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick ) for the O2 Joggler.

I'm trying to set up openssh server on my Joggler's Ubuntu 10.10 so that I can copy files over via winscp. I installed it with Synaptic and had a look in the config file but cannot see how to set a password or how to allow winscp to connect. I'm sure I'm missing something blindingly obvious. Can any...

Re: Telnet, SSH, How to guide?

You need to make sure your Joggler is enabled for telnet. PMJ (pimp my joggler) http://www.joggler.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=842 or plug'n'pimp http://www.joggler.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=1155 will do this for you.

Re: Squeezeplay on Native - BBC iPlayer buffering

I've had to return one Joggler because the internal flash went t*ts up and have had another mysteriously wipe itself on at least 3 occasions so I'm with you on that one. Are you volunteering? :-) EDIT - I tried flashing an image of the Joggler's native OS to a USB stick & booting from that but needl...
