Re: Welcome to Emergency Mode

Sadly no, having trouble getting the system to boot from a USB LiveCD. I think I ran into this before as the default initrams reference a Partition name that unetbootin does not set when it generates the bootable USB. (If I remember correctly, I think it's a bug with the Mac version of the tool.) Yo...

Re: Welcome to Emergency Mode

SSD's were chosen due to size and reliability, not speed. I also had them already available and unused, so reduced cost of build. I also have a SSD cage that holds 4 drives and fits into a stnadard 5.25 bay, so it didn't take up any of the space I wanted to use for the TB traditional drives. Speed w...

Re: Welcome to Emergency Mode

Does anyone know how to change the screen resolution in Emergency Mode (or from a prompt logged in as root)? I can't edit the fstab file successfully with 1/3 of it off the screen, unfortunately. This is a tremendous pita!

If it helps, this is a 22" HDMI display.

Welcome to Emergency Mode

A few days after a brief power outage, I noticed my hda was unresponsive to ping, web interface or SSH. Have not made any changes to it within last 5-6 months, not even any new data saved to it within past several weeks, so I powered it down, waited a few seconds then powered it back on. (This being...

Is Docker an option for apps going forward

In keeping with the desire to keep things as much 'one click install' as possible for apps - would it be worthwhile to consider Docker containers as an option? It could potentially help minimize the amount of changes necessary to keep up with, and could even make Amahi truly platform agnostic - givi...

Is there a backup method for Amahi Server itself

I have setup and am comfortable with setting both windows and mac machines to backup to Amahi, but recently ran into situation where I should have backed up the OS itself up in such a way that it could easily be reinstalled. Does anyone have a solution they have used with good results?

Re: ERROR 1146 (42S02) at line 1: Table 'hda_production.settings' doesn't exist

Oh - the frustrating part was the focus on the HDA-install command - that was the tail end of the process and least important piece of how I got where I was. My question was just intended to let me wrap up the thought process as far as 'what could cause this error' prior to moving on and reinstallin...

Re: ERROR 1146 (42S02) at line 1: Table 'hda_production.settings' doesn't exist

I'm sorry, I was attempting brevity, rather than spewing out paragraphs of backstory which will probably just confuse things even more. You are absolutely correct (of course) in that the hda-install command is not a part of those upgrade instructions. That part actually came later on.. as I was tryi...

oh! I did find this gem in old bug report for same issue (5 yrs ago lol) https://bugs.amahi.org/issues/840 Unfortunately the Rakefile fix mentioned in it doesn't make that much sense to me (concept makes sense, I just don't know the syntax well enough for the commands it suggests inserting in the Ra...
