I have used both, I created the methods to boot the rpi's.  The currently recommended method is diskless style booting and that will always be the preferred method, now that it is available again.  That being said the updated files to use the diskless boot are not yet in the repository.

I usually attribute this to bad cabling or switches.  I can say that I have absolutely no problems accessing/playing media with my RPi3s.

The verification is due to spamming, it goes away after making a few posts. 

And as Alblasco points out 1604 has a couple of bugs that prevent daily use atm.  And due to new boot methodologies we may need to alter our dvd creation.  Net install for 1604 can be accomplished.

Hi guys just to let you know I keep on getting errors when booting the 2 latest 1604 installation dvds
The very first error I get is unable to mount sda5 due to geometry

"Bad geometry: block count 120019712  exceeds size of device (256 blocks)
...
Mounting /dev/sda5 on /cdrom failed: invalid argument
It also fails to create the ssl certificate unfortunately I wasn't able to capture a photo of any more failures, login service was one of them
After it has finished "loading" it's finishes on cli login
Md5 and ram checks out
If i can figure out how to add a photo from my phone to the post I'll put in a screen shot
Thanks mat
Now to figure out why I can't even get a grub screen for 1004!
Ps what's with this verification thing? I have to press for a new image at least 10 times just to get one that's readable! Each time!

Users / Raspberry Pi v3 as media director - slow nfs speed
« Last post by G.I.R. on August 17, 2016, 03:24:36 pm »
Hy,

i had some time and tried to use a new RPiB 3 as a media director.
the installation went fine and the md boots flawlessly.
But whenever i try to watch some media or listen to some music the only thing i can see or hear is a short fraction of the media and then it ends.

i have found this error in /var/log/syslog on the md:
Code: [Select]
Aug 17 14:43:12 moon97 kernel: [19352.261755] nfs: server 192.168.80.1 not responding, timed out
I did some speedtest with iperf and that looks good:
Code: [Select]
root@moon97:~# iperf -c 192.168.80.1
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to 192.168.80.1, TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 43.8 KByte (default)
------------------------------------------------------------
[  3] local 192.168.80.4 port 42484 connected with 192.168.80.1 port 5001
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  3]  0.0-10.0 sec   112 MBytes  94.3 Mbits/sec

so i tried to copy a file with scp from the router to the md and got 10.0MB/s.

and now it becomes really strange.
if i mount the nfs shares in this way:

Code: [Select]
root@moon97:~# mount -v -t nfs 192.168.80.1:/home/ /test/                                                         
mount.nfs: timeout set for Wed Aug 17 14:44:36 2016
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=192.168.80.1,clientaddr=192.168.80.4'

the speed of copying a file is really really slow.

if i do it like that:
Code: [Select]
root@moon97:~# mount -v -t nfs 192.168.80.1:/home/public/data/videos/2.00\ TB\ \(sda1\)\ WDC_WD30EFRX-68\ \[58\]/TV/Family_Guy/ /test/
mount.nfs: timeout set for Wed Aug 17 14:46:19 2016
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=192.168.80.1,clientaddr=192.168.80.4'
mount.nfs: mount(2): No such file or directory
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'addr=192.168.80.1'
mount.nfs: prog 100003, trying vers=3, prot=6
mount.nfs: trying 192.168.80.1 prog 100003 vers 3 prot TCP port 2049
mount.nfs: prog 100005, trying vers=3, prot=17
mount.nfs: trying 192.168.80.1 prog 100005 vers 3 prot UDP port 52139

the speed is normal and i can copy a 100mb file in a few seconds.

the zotac zbox which is my standard md in that room has no problems dealing with any media.
i also switched the network cable without success.

Does anybody has a hint what i am doing wrong or what i can do better?
Maybe it is time to call an exorcist?  :)

Installation issues / Re: Does the WebDT 366 work with 1404?

That did it. I just daisy-chained another access point to a port on my 802.11n router which is configured as an access point on the internal network. Its great to have all of my old gear back in action. Thanks.

Phenegma,

Please follow up on your comment regarding $?. Please check the file for this script in your installation. I did not change this.

After many days, the detection script has not run. Is there a way to trigger?
