Re: using logrotate and ramlog

I found a blog by Hawkeye that also hosts the file (direct link). You need to accept his self-signed SSL certificate. In addition, I also put it on my Pi (direct link, you also have to accept or ignore the certificate).

Re: using logrotate and ramlog

Did someone find a host of the package? I would be glad to have it (and to host it on my Pi :-) ).

Re: [SOLVED] NTP problem - private remote IP

True, but this is far beyond the configuration options of the router that my provider gave me. And from what I've read, it's not easy to use a custom one with them. Stupid system.

Re: NTP problem - private remote IP

You are entirely right. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The NTP daemon was started with the configuration file in /var/lib/ntp/ntp.conf.dhcp which apparently is created by the DHCP client. However, I couldn't find a nice way to disable this behaviour. In the /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf, I...

Re: NTP problem - private remote IP

Yes, they are well connected to the internet (DSL flatrate). One is acting as a webserver and (connected via ethernet to the router) and always on, the other one uses WiFi. Also, pinging external servers works great with low response times.

Re: Tracks server / Ruby on Rails performance

Just in case someone else is interested: I couldn't really get to test the performance because Tracks requires the libv8 gem and there is a bug in the current version so it does not compile on an ARM system. There seems to be a workaround but its not really on my priority list to try this out.

Re: NTP problem - private remote IP

Thanks for your reply. I forgot to mention that I tried fixing the date manually using "ntpdate" on one of the Pis and it still shows the same output for the "ntpq -p". I also just tried your suggestion but it didn't really get the time (at least if it is supposed to be faster than one hour).

[SOLVED] NTP problem - private remote IP

Hello, I recently received another Pi and wanted to set it up when I found out that it didn't sync the time correctly. I then became aware of the same issue of my first Pi that is a web- and homeserver. On that machine, however, it must have been working at some point because the time is still corre...

Tracks server / Ruby on Rails performance

Hi, I'm thinking about setting up a Tracks -server (an online tool for organising yourself). Does anyone have experience with it and can say something about the performance? Or, as it is based on Ruby on Rails, can someone tell me how this compares to the performance of PHP on the Raspberry Pi (whic...

Re: seafile vs ajaxplorer performance

The version I tested was also 1.8.5. The two differ in their basic philosophy. Seafile is meant to be a collaboration platform, so it's more about sharing data whereas ajaxplorer more feels like a data storage engine (an explorer). So I do have AjaxPlorer installed but I rarely use it. For the synch...

Re: seafile vs ajaxplorer performance

In case anybody else is interested: I ended up trying both and seafile feels a bit faster but the difference is not as big as I would have tought. So I'm sticking with ajaxplorer as it has more cloud-file-manager like features than seafile which is intended to be a collaboration platform.

seafile vs ajaxplorer performance

hi,

i'm trying to setup a cloud storage using the pi. after leaving owncloud some time ago, i now switched to ajaxplorer which is nice but feels slow as it is written in php. does anybody know if seafile is/feels faster? after all, it is written in python.

cheers,

maybe it's got something to do with the manufacturing country of the pi. mine are all chinese and who knows, maybe their sd-slots are not entirely compliant with the standards? just a thought.

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick

There's something I don't quite understand and that bothers me for some time now.
Why is it good to move the OS to a USB stick (I'm not speaking about a proper hard drive attached via USB). They also use flash storage so they too have a limited number of read/write cycles. So what's the advantage?

regarding your second question: you could use a read-only filesystem setup for the os partition (there are posts about this on the forum). the data collection partition might be trickier. i am not sure if there is an easy way to handle incompletely written (let's assume text-) files from your data r...
