After a big power outage and dsl down for over a day I am back getting things put back again.

One task was to copy Xbian system img to USB for booting pi - but it is not working from Xbian-config.

When I select option 6 xbian copier, it just goes straight back to the menu! - Any ideas? Pi is a pi2 update today before this was tried....
Tell me exactly what you are entering into field destination
I can't even get that far.... Sad

I use xbian-config, option 6 xbian-copier and it goes right back to the main xbian-config menu....I do have a usb plugged in ready for the copy.

I tried update and reboot, still get that issue. Strange.

I just tried another pi2 and it is doing the same thing..... ???

Now tried all 3 pi2 xbian builds (all slightly different and all updated/upgraded today) and they all exhibit tha same behaviour.
Hmmm, that's weird Huh

Just checked on my test Pi3 (mostly unconfigured), works as it should Dodgy

Could you please post your language settings (sudo locale) and output of sudo dpkg-query -s xbian-package-config-shell

So, seems to be identical. Did you already tried to reinstall this package?

I'm sorry, but at the moment I do not have a better idea ...

Ah, hold on. I know what the problem is:

Your ssh window is too small. I enlarged the copier window to 82x29, and it seems it does not fit into your screen

Terminal

root@kmxbilr2 ~ # stty size
32 92
root@kmxbilr2 ~ #


Shows your screen size inside of a ssh session

Maybe it would be good idea to check the size and print a warning message Tongue

Bingo! Smile -- You got it!

But now I get 'fail' message instead! Sad
I have target set to "file: /dev/sda1" as well as the usual "/dev/sda1" and both say error....?

Of course you could also not bugger about with ssh terminal window size in the first place Tongue

Cheers!

Is it safe to just follow the instuctions in the window still?

Sure, they are correct.

What I did is to check if all commands returning without an error. So, it seems that your copy command was failing

For example, in the past if copying of a subvolume did not work without errors, image was broken but user was not informed about that

Did you use file: prefix in the destination field?
Tried with and without file prefix (as per last post) Tongue
And your root (source device) is on ... ?

Terminal

root@kmxbilr2 ~ # sudo findmnt -n /
/ /dev/sda8[/root/@] btrfs rw,noatime,compress=lz4,space_cache,autodefrag,subvolid=258,subvol=/root/@
root@kmxbilr2 ~ #
"wrong destination block or is not a device" - This is what I just got copying to /dev/sda1.... but....


Terminal

xbian@lounge2 ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0781:5571 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer Fit
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1d57:0008 Xenta

So device is there..... Only other usb is the Xenta usb wireless mouse receiver.

I got it - Darned thing was mounted as sda5! - Sorry!
And you're sure that /dev/sda1 exists?

See my previous post Tongue
... was reading it already ... Rolleyes
Heheh..... Wink

Strange as it's always been sda1 since the first time I added usb for running this pi (and the other 2 systems as well) - So not sure why suddenly it decided to do this, but a quick df and it was obvious what the problem probably was.

Now copy completed and so I changed /boot/cmdline.txt to sda5......rebooted....Nothing!

I'll investigate this more when I can. No worries.

Cheers again
