Re: Core 2.21 Update 127 -> 128 Failed

I've upgraded my Banana Pi and i586-PAE from core 127 to 128 without problem. Have now upgraded my KVM virtual machine of x86_64 from core 125 to core 128, again without problem. This is not a working system - simply a way of testing that the cores & upgrades work. A few others have reported similar...

Re: Core 2.21 Update 127 -> 128 Failed

The "grub>" prompt is an indication that grub is installed (and probably working) but a configuration file was not found. Type the following sequence of commands, for non-EFI installations: grub> set root='hd0,msdos1' grub> linux /vmlinuz-4.14.103-ipfire root=/dev/sda3 grub> initrd /initramfs-4.14.1...

Re: unable to get addons list and addons parkets

My suggestion was about SD not SSD.

How are you able to get IPFire to boot from HDD on Banana Pi ?

Re: unable to get addons list and addons parkets

I would be inclined to backup your settings and install core 127. Alternatively core 126, if you want to try to home in on the problem. If re-using an SD card then be aware that it is advisable to first run "SD Formatter", which is explained towards the end of: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/3776-t...

Re: Why is Linux OS WAN always slower? General speed comparisons using speedtest-cli

Any test of Internet speed that goes beyond your own ISP's site is subject to too many variables, that are constantly changing, making comparisons invalid. The only speed test that I rely on is that of downloading a large file (libreoffice or linux distribution) directly my own ISP's mirror. Even th...

Re: new user fresh install, drops outgoing port 443

It's possible that you have a faulty NIC for red. Try running "ifconfig" and if there are errors, then change red to the unused NIC.

A faulty cat 5 cable is also a possibilty. Try a different cable.

Re: Olimex-Opensource-Hardware-Board with iPfire?

Be certain to download and read the manual for Oimex A20 devices. The general procedure in https://wiki.ipfire.org/hardware/arm/lemaker/bananapi might work: dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/mmcblk? bs=1K seek=8 should be appropriate, for any A20 SoC. Then Mount the boot filesystem (1 Partitio...

Re: Problem with network card since core 126

There does appear to be some issue in detecting the MAC addresses of the other ports. I had a look at system log for the period I was having problems but those are not sufficiently detailed to identify the cause. I'm using a USB dongle for RED and it would be difficult for the developers to replicat...

Re: Olimex-Opensource-Hardware-Board with iPfire?

I'm running IPFire on Bananapi and /boot/dtb-4.14.86-ipfire-multi does contain dtb files for six Olimex A20 boards. OTOH, Olimex list sixteen A20 models, so some care would be needed in selecting a board.

Re: Problem with network card since core 126

I've also had intermittent problems with red not being found from core 127.

Try reconfiguring the red interface again, from "setup" then rebooting.

Re: No Internet access on green interface (IPFire)

Hi W4nn4cry, Your school's network also has a router and consequently you need a bit more configuration of IPFire settings. Try connecting your client PC directly to the school's network and note down what DNS & Gateway addresses it is given (these are possibly the same). Then go back to your IPFire...

Re: sda errors

Is there some reason that you have a scheduled, daily reboot ? IPFire typically needs a reboot only following some, but not each, core update.

Much would depend on how the reboot is initiated and whether or not that cleanly unmounts partitons on sda.

Re: raspberry hardwar proxy

Most RPi models have problems with IPFire - see https://wiki.ipfire.org/hardware/arm/start Better to use the onboard Ethernet as GREEN and a plug-in USB-Ethernet adapter as RED. That way you don't lose access to the IPFire device if the USB dongle "drops out" The wiki does report on some of the latt...

Re: [SOLVED] 4G Configuration - ZTE MF 823

After IPFire boots, activate SSH access and log in via terminal. Then run setup and remove the RED interface device. You will probably need to exit setup and re-start it. Then add the MF823 back as RED device. How it should be configured might vary between Telcos (mine is with Telstra, Australia). D...

Re: [SOLVED] 4G Configuration - ZTE MF 823

It's a while since I used my with IPFire. It is critical that it be set to "autoconnect" and AFAIK, that can be done only from Windows, but the procedure is set by the vendor and YMMV. When installing IPFire, it should then appear as another "card", in setup -> networking -> drivers & card assignmen...
