Re: Upgrade to 122 leaves me at a grub prompt

Not sure what happened with the old system but as far as I could tell all of the update had completed before I rebooted.

I stuck a new disk into my machine and reinstalled core 122 from the ISO and then reconfigured everything so all is well again!

Re: Upgrade to 122 leaves me at a grub prompt

Looking more closely, the partition that is normally mounted as /boot didn't have the Linux kernel or ramdisk images. I have installed the same IPFire version into VirtualBox so I could pull the files out and put them back on the hard disk. Back at the grub> prompt I can manually boot the kernel but...

Upgrade to 122 leaves me at a grub prompt

Hello,

I have upgraded from revision 120 to 122 (i586 on a SATA hard drive) and on rebooting I get dumped at a grub> prompt and the system doesn't boot.

How do I fix it?

Re: Reindexing update accelerator

I am happy to test your rewrite of the update accelerator if you want to send the code to me with instructions on how to manually deploy it.

No need to apologise for a short reply. I appreciate all your help and family comes first. I have applied the patch from the Bugzilla ticket which adds the \" ... \" delimiters around some of the path related variables and also some changes that I found in this post .

Re: Reindexing update accelerator

These files all show up under "Pending Downloads" with the grey "suspended" icon.

Clicking on the "Maintenance" button shows them with a blue "download" icon and "n/a" for both the last cache access and the last source checkup columns.

Re: Reindexing update accelerator

Logging wasn't enabled in the update accelerator so I have turned it on, rebooted IPFire and run another update on one of the Linux servers. A Windows 10 laptop that was switched on had also added some files to the queue before the logging was enabled. The file /var/log/updatexlrator/cache.log only ...

Re: Reindexing update accelerator

To try and see what was going on I deleted all of the files from the pending download queue and rebooted my IPFire box.

Reindexing update accelerator

Hello, If I look at the statistics for the update accelerator through the web interface it tells me that there are 12 files using just over 2GB yet if I run "du -sh" from within the /var/updatecache directory it reports 81GB and 27,405 files.
