IriDium:
Quote:How I upgraded from the image file on the Xbian website.

1) ssh - xbian-config -> Upgrade -> Option 1 and then Option 2.
2) Option 3 - Upgrade.
Ignore btrfs-tools and xbian-packages.
Select all the rest - should be wheezy ones. Last one probably tzdata.
3) When finished - select btrfs-tools.
4) When finished, reboot.
5) Select the remaining Xbian packages.

I've done this twice now, so you shouldn't have any issue Cool


Worked since I skipped those packages, and xbian-config seems to work as normal.
Will probably have to redo all of it though, since I read about your [/quote]ad-hoc solution on booting from USB in the other thread, which is my goal.

But now I know it works after all.Smile

Thanks!

RE: Official XBian 1.0 RC 1 thread
@Lucifer, this is how i made it work...
Terminal
sudo su
apt-get clean; apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade
reboot

now the pi will get stuck in bootloop due to some failed updates, so repeat.
Terminal
sudo su
apt-get clean; apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade
reboot


some updates fail to install the 1st time due to them requiring a newer kernel,
once you do the 1st update the kernel is updated,
thus the 2nd time you go for the update they'll be able to be installed.





with that said, you could start by updating the firmware/kernel only and rebooting,
this should allow the pi to boot nomally,
then run the update cmds and it should update just fine.

RE: Official XBian 1.0 RC 1 thread
Hi everybody

So, i'm pretty new to raspberry - linux world but i learn easily.
I've tried Raspbmc and openelec but xbian fits me me better so i decided to go further with it.

I've got an issue with xbian RC1 - at least i guess - Installation goes without problem (even if i had the starting loop problem). Then i decided to add couchpotato, sickbeard and transmission. Everything goes fine except when i restart my pi. Even if autostart is enabled with couchpotato and sickbeard, i have to manually start them each time wich is quite annoying. (seems to have no problem with headphones)
Furthermore, couchpotato is unable to work properly. Can't add movies and some settings won't save (quality, etc...). I would like to update it but i've no idea how to do it.
So I don't know if it's related with RC1 build or couchpotato/sickbeard but some help will be great.

BTW : i'ld like to apologize for my bad english ... i'm french

RE: Official XBian 1.0 RC 1 thread
So ... i found how to upgrade ...

1. Flash beta 2
2. boot and wait for partition resize.
3. SSH login
4. Exit xbian-config
5. $ sudo -s
6. # service xbmc stop
7. # apt-get update
8. # apt-get install xbian-package-kernel
9. # apt-get install dpkg
10. # apt-get install xbian-package-firmware
11. # reboot
12. Wait for SSH service to start
13. Repeat steps 3 to 5.
14. # dpkg --clear-avail
15. # apt-get update
16. # apt-get upgrade
17. # apt-get dist-upgrade
18. # apt-get autoremove
19. # apt-get install (the last held back package (CEC)).
20. # apt-get autoremove
21. # reboot

RE: Official XBian 1.0 RC 1 thread
I upgraded 2 pi's toady with no real trouble.

One of them was on B1.1 and one on B2.0 - the B2.0 one did get into the 'starting xbmc' loop, but a quick ssh in and apt-get clean, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade sorted that one out....the B2.0 was updated from within xbmc and the B1.1 was all done via ssh as it's headless.

Now the xbian-config menus look nice again Smile

This was the least painful upgrade of Xbian to date - so thank you to the team for putting the effort in to make it so.

There's still some testing to do (and both now only have port 22 for SSH), but it's looking good!

Nice work, thanks ;-)

FYI, you have two small typos in step 13 and step 18.
In 13 it should be clear instead of clean. In 18 it should be install instead of isntall.

Btw, what did you choose when it asked you about samba automatic configuration?

RE: Official XBian 1.0 RC 1 thread
I just found a possible bug?

Seems that neither pi will now do a backup from ssh - xbian-config.

The backup takes only a few seconds and results in a 1Kb file.

I wanted to backup the new RC1.0 installs, but it seems that's not possible.

I also just discovered that the new upgrade turns on UPNP by default. I can turn it off on the pi with a monitor, but how to disable it on the headless pi vias SSH? Is it possible?

Thanks. Corrected it ... And I choose yes for samba autoconf.

RPi B
USB Seagate Expansion 3TB

I'm having the same problem. 1.5 TB HFS+ (no journaling) that was working just fine before the update and is now read only. I tried mount -o remount,rw /media/usb0 to no avail. Changing permissions with chmod and ownernship with chown is no good either as it's a read only system.

I've just changed the step by step upgrade procedure - it appears you need to upgrade xbian-package-firmware ... I don't know why, but after 6 or 7 tries last night, when the Raspberry just refused to boot. I just made it with upgrading the package before the first restart.

RE: Official XBian 1.0 RC 1 thread
What is the reason we cannot simply get an IMG file to install? This manual upgrade is a lot of work and it seems to change. No guarantee it will work.
