If I see that correctly, this tool is tied to NetworkManager. However, Geexbox uses ConnMan by default. Even though NetworkManager can be installed alternatively, but I have no idea how good that will work. Also it looks like the tool makes use of desktop/GUI functionality, which Geexbox normally does not provide.
Hmm, I just downloaded it and used unetbotin to put it on a USB. It booted up just fine. But anyway, I’m not running Geexbox on Intel platforms very often. BTW, if wired network is not connected and the wifi hardware gets detected but no valid credentials are present, the boot process may get delayed for several minutes. So you have to be patient.
Please use one of the images found at http://download.geexbox.org/snapshots/.
After installing you can either use the “Geexbox Network Addon” within Kodi (you need to activate it via Kodi settings first) or login to the machine and edit the file /etc/network manually.
Check your network connectivity and your local DNS.
Given our current human resources, I’d say it won’t happen until it is completely unavoidable.
Thanks for the comments. We’ll see what we can do about it. I have to admit, that the Intel platforms did not get much attention during the last few years due to the advent of small ARM devices like Cubox or RaspberryPi…January 9, 2019 at 14:13 in reply to: Old cubox (Armada) does'n mount automatically external drive #12542
I don’t really know the details. But is that Cubox up to date? You might want to try reinstalling the packages ‘udisks’, ‘linux-util-ng’ and ‘ntfs-3g’.
I tested a FAT32 stick on my old Cubox and it mounted just fine. However, the GUID looked rather different. I.e. multiple groups of hex numbers, not just a single string as yours.
I’m afraid it’t the whole Geexbox thing. Pretty much all contributors have lost interest 🙁January 4, 2019 at 23:44 in reply to: Old cubox (Armada) does'n mount automatically external drive #12518
No idea. But I would avoid NTFS by any means. It’s the worst file system to use on Linux.
Furthermore, when mounting a volume manually/via fstab I would mount it under /nmt rather than under /media in order to avoid interference with removable drives.
Edit: I assume that the drive is connected to the eSATA port. Only in this case you need the entry in fstab. If it’s USB, then it should be mounted automatically under /media.
Did you set the proper backend in /etc/pvr.conf ?
To be honest, I’m not inclined to do further research on this. There are so many things I’m more interested in and currently I’m pretty much alone here :(. Also sorry for the late reply and a Happy New Year!
we are currently in the situation that nobody is maintaining the web site. Especially the “Download” page is broken and utterly outdated. We abandoned mercurial many years ago. Current sources can be found at GitHub.
As for crytography, please try this version. It’s the “newest” that will build without changing our environment.
