OoZooN-CVS-full-dm8000-20090829.nfi + OoZooN-CVS-lean-dm8000-20090829.nfi (enigma2 2.6 dev)

  • na ja du kannst dir ja ein userscript schreiben das start/stop/enable/disable der usbhid Treiber macht so wie du es jetzt rausgefunden hast - als beispiel kannst du ja das swapfile ipk aus OoZooN's Vogelthread nehmen.


    Und wenn das funktioniert kannst du es mit dem userscript handhaben und OoZooN macht dir vieleicht ein ipk drauf und tut es auf seinen feed.

  • Yesterday I updated my DM8k OoZooN-CVS-full-dm8000-20090829 using the update check plugin.
    The update froze with this info on screen:-
    http://www.oozoon-dreamboxupda…000/20081213/feed/libpyth
    Which I guess was one of the python libraries.
    There is no crash log or update log file.
    I had to re-install the image, then update using software manager. The DM is now behaving very strangely - it locks up at random places.


    1. is there a way to force updatecheck to write a log file?
    2. can I clear the flash memory before installing a new image? - if so how?

  • in this case a log doesn't help. the box freezes and it isn't anything written to the log anymore. it seems that is a memory problem. it's better to check free working memory with "free" before or reboot the box before updating.


    if you flash the box, the flash will be complete overwritten.

    ... and when I have the free memory information - what next?

  • do a prayer that it is enough - or better reboot to have more free memory :-)

  • i made a test on my 800 this afternoon. when update starts it was about 70 mb free memory. when finished about 20 mb. i can't tell you what happens if you have only 5 mb free. test it.

  • was sagt den df -h | grep tmpfs nach dem upgrade ?

    Edited once, last by gutemine ().

  • if the skin is provided in oozoon notation (enigma2-plugin-skins-***-version.ipk) and maintained by a person (which i can contact, if there is trouble) than it's no problem, to include him on download-feed.


    and the skin ipk does not patch or overwrite files from other ipk's!

    I had 3MB free when I started the update; maybe that's what causes the problems.
    I have a swap file enabled (CF), but it doesn't show any memory being used.
    Should I delete plugins before upgrading to free up memory?

  • no, that doesn't change anything cause that does not free your working memory (ram) type free in telnet, reboot the box and type free again in telnet and you will see, how much ram is available then.

  • free - before re-boot:-


    Code
    total used free shared buffers
    Mem: 155576 121280 34296 0 3192
    Swap: 65528 200 65328
    Total: 221104 121480 99624


    after re-boot:-


    Code
    total used free shared buffers
    Mem: 155576 116360 39216 0 10876
    Swap: 65528 0 65528
    Total: 221104 116360 104744

    does update via telnet use less memory?


    I assume I use ipkg update && install

    you mean ipkg update && ipkg upgrade for an image update


    ipkg update && ipkg install xxxx.ipk to install a plugin

    Thanks.
    Question is still - does this use less memory?


    I think that is not the subject !
    When you want update in terminal or with softwaremanger, then better restart the box before or you should create & aktivate swap, then you're prepared for surprises and you will have no problems to update.
    memory enough ;)


    But better to do update in the terminal, that you can see the output.
    If any problemes occur in the output, you have infos to report here.
