Re: libplymouth4 installation breaks mountall in Jessie

A recent update has broken mountall for me on Raspbian stretch: mountall: error while loading shared libraries: libply-boot-client.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Following that link about XBian doesn't help. It denies that it is an XBian problem. I tried downgrading...

Re: libplymouth4 installation breaks mountall in Jessie

I looks like this is not a Raspbian issue, but an XBian issue , since XBian uses a modified mountall package, which attempts to ignore plymouth . Sorry for the alarm! Edit: I also downgraded the mountall package to the raspbian.org version, and when using the raspberrypi.org version of plymouth , i...

Re: Repositories which Pi endorses

Still, it would be nice to have a page to reference on rasberrypi.org (or even raspbian.org ) to see the official repositories rather than having to download and mount the image. http://archive.raspbian.net/ http://archive.raspberrypi.org/ How would I have known about these without asking in this t...

Re: Repositories which Pi endorses

The only official operating system is Raspbian, and the only official/endorsed repositories are the one that is default when you install Raspbian. I downloaded the latest image from Raspberry Pi just to see the repositories it used. And indeed, it had: # in /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://mirrordi...

Repositories which Pi endorses

Does this site (raspberrypi.org) have an up-to-date list of "official" (or "approved") repositories which it expects users to use? It seems like this site expects people to use Raspbian, and Raspbian lists its official repository on its site. But, I was trying to troubleshoot a Java issue and saw th...

My Raspbian repository does not appear to contain this package. Am I missing a source or did Raspbian remove this package from the repository?

Network drops after 10 minutes of moderate activity

Model: B (512 MB RAM) Distribution: XBian 1.0 RC2 My Raspberry Pi functions mainly as a server for my files, hosing various services such as FTP , rsync , samba , etc. I have configured my router (DD-WRT) and ISP (AT&T U-Verse) so that I can access my server from the Internet. I have found that, wi...

I/O Errors during rsync

I have a XBian server running rsync via inetd (not the native dæmon). I am serving a couple of directories on an ext4 filesystem (on a USB disk) as individual modules (the modules in question have in the order of 100-500 GB of data, and 1000-10000 files). I have noticed that lately, as I alter other...

Re: ProFTPD can't chroot

I tried a similar setup with Pure-FTPd, and the chroot feature doesn't work with Pure-FTPd, either. It seems like Raspbian's (or XBian's) chroot doesn't work in the way ProFTPd or Pure-FTPd expect. Update: I did eventually accomplish this with Pure-FTPd's Virtual Chroot feature. I added the followi...

Use the secure ftp (sftp) feature of sshd, it's already running if sshd is active.
We can start another discussion about using SFTP instead of FTP, but I'm mainly asking about the chroot ability of the Raspbian (or XBian) system.

Re: ProFTPD can't chroot

In essence, I'm wondering, who has the problem, ProFTPD's mod_vroot, XBian's chroot, or someone else?

ProFTPD can't chroot

Raspberry Pi, Model A, running XBian 1.02B I installed ProFTPD, and attempted to configure it with the DefaultRoot directive (both with "DefaultRoot ~" and "DefaultRoot /absolute/path"). But, I noticed that ProFTPD would start me in the filesystem root no matter what. So, I checked the logs to see i...
