Python datetime module problems?

I have just initialized an SD card with the 2013-09-25-wheezy-raspbian image. There seems to be problems with the Python 2.7 Datetime module. Anyone else see the same? Here is the dead simple test python program: #!/usr/bin/python import datetime And my results: [email protected] ~ $ ./test.py Traceback (most ...

Networking speeds data collection

I'm seeing data all over the map when people report their effective network speeds. I am curious to know what speeds other people are seeing and why. The following form gives specific instructions on measuring effective data transfer rates between a Raspberry Pi and a second Linux computer. The inst...

Re: NFS Server.

Ack - 12 hours to compile a kernel image is a lot of pain! Get your cross compiling working before trying that again. If you can't cross-compile, then turn off as much as you can in the kernel config.

I have since switched to the Raspbian image, and it does have NFSd compiled as a kernel module.

Re: Samba and mounting usb hdd?

Anyway idea what could be the problem? Check your permissions for the entire path. For example, if your share name is [Media], and the VFS path is /mnt/usb/Media, then check the following: ls -al /mnt ls -al /mnt/usb Make sure the mode bits are appropriate for file access the whole way through. Sam...

Re: MRTG?

Any suggestions? My useless suggestion is to use rrdtool instead of mrtg. It is written by the same guy, but rrdtool was created to overcome the limitations of mrtg. The interface to rrdtool is generic, you only need to be able to create shell/perl/python scripts to provide current values on a peri...

Re: NFS Server.

I ran into the same thing with the original Wheezy image. I recompiled the kernel with the kernel NFS server as a loadable module.

Check the Raspbian image - I think it has kernel NFSd enabled.

Re: Very Cheap NAS

ext4 because it is the default, native, hence faster, and very reliable. Samba takes care of making the files on the ext4 partition available to windows machines that don't handle ext4. Not that I have got the Mac part working anyway but would it be possible to use the same EXT4 parition for the sa...

Re: Very Cheap NAS

Im very disappointed with the performance that Im getting with the samba share. Its a USB 2 external disk and backing up 60GB of data litterally took about 12 hours! 100Mb/s ethernet is about 44 GB/hour, assuming 100% efficiency, which you will not have. 60GB would need about 90 minutes at 100% eff...

Re: Very Cheap NAS

OK it seems that you have to update the firmware as there is an issue when both the USB & NIC are passing data to each other which causes the pi to crash. I'm seeing an issue with my Pi/NAS. I wouldn't quite call it a crash. In my case, a single USB flash drives stops responding and the kernel flag...
