Re: Some questions about upgrading to Amahi 8 from Amahi 7

I understand your concerns and have answered your questions below: 3. Will I be able to install any desktop afterwards? I ask this, because I use TeamViewer to manage my computers, and it requires a desktop to work. ANSWER: Support with Gnome or any other desktop was discontinued in Amahi 7 and wil...

Some questions about upgrading to Amahi 8 from Amahi 7

Hi there, From reading another post, I understand that I can't do an upgrade to Amahi 8 (because I have the Gnome Desktop installed), so I have to do a clean install. I do have some questions though. 1. I have my system hard drive set up with the partitions for the boot/root/home/swap as one part, a...

Suggestion that we drop the Fedora base, and go with Ubuntu

I'm tossing this out for opinions from everyone, and hopefully consideration by the development team. In the past, we tried an Ubuntu-based version of Amahi (on the 12.04 LTS). I'm suggesting that we drop the Fedora based version, or at least make the Ubuntu one a default moving on. The reason that ...

HDAConnect fails to connect via OpenVPN (Windows 8.1)

Hi there, I noticed someone else having this issue on a Mac, but I'm having it with the official HDAConnect app running on Windows 8.1 (64). I've verified that the openvpn service is running, and in my control panel, it says that it's working. Here is the log for the most recent attempt: Tue Feb 17 ...

Re: DHCP Server Settings....specifically ip range

Ok looks like there is some capability in hda-ctl to manually configure the DHCP range settings. # NOTE: You can change default settings by creating /etc/hda-ctl.conf # and putting perl variable assignments there, like for example: # # $DEVICE = "eth0"; # $NETMASK_SIZE = "24"; # $NET_START = "0"; #...

Re: DHCP Server Settings....specifically ip range

Not sure, but I think this may be coded in the Fedora DHCP server configuration. I do not have access to my HDA currently to poke at it. This would be something good to add to the wiki once sorted out. In Amahi 7, you were using dnsmasq, correct? So something tells dnsmasq to configure dhcp to use ...

Re: DHCP Server Settings....specifically ip range

Out of curiosity, has this been worked on since the thread was started? Also what controls the range? If it's something that's set in the hda-ctl script (or another script), I'd like to take a shot at customizing it. My reasons are that I may want to set up a backup dhcp server, in case amahi crashe...

What program/service controls the dynamic updating in CP?

My question is pretty simple and straightforward. What program or service on the Amahi home server handles dynamic updating to Amahi.org's Control Panel? To my knowledge, I haven't made any changes that would "break" this, however in my Control Panel, it shows Stopped and an old IP Address. Have a g...

Easy way to set Amahi's DNS (in resolv.conf) to other server

Hi everyone, So here's the deal. Like a few others, I was having issues with the Amahi DNS (dnsmasq in Amahi 7) causing timeouts and other issues. Plus at the time, my computer was crashing due to an unrelated issue. So I set up an alternative DHCP/DNS server, which everyone is using now. The proble...

Re: Packages not updating (heartbleed)

No., you mistunderstand the statement. Amahi updates are to the platform and greyhole. OS updates are OpenSSL and all other packages native to Fedora. EDIT: Another way to think of it is Amahi updates are only those that come from the Amahi repo. All others are OS specific, like OpenSSL, httpd, etc...
