I recently installed Fuppes onto my Drobo and it was working ok but not seeing everything so i thought i’d re-install the software and start again, now every time i try to configure Fuppes it tells me the admin page cannot be found i.e. http://192.168.2.100:49201/
How come this has stopped working, it’s is pretty much the only reason i brought my drobo + droboshare and originally worked fine.
The only thing i did notice is that the sites says the tzg file is 11mb but when i download it it’s 2.7 and after restarting the drobo and looking in the droboapps folder there are only 2 files there whereas before there were more. The two files are “Fuppes” and “Admin URL”.
Could it be that my mac is not downloading the full tzg file?
You’ll be pleased to know that it’s not your computers at fault; it seems that the archive on the site is broken. I’ve just downloaded a copy (using Opera 10 on Linux) and it is indeed a 2.7 MiB file. “gunzip” reports that the file is broken/incomplete.
I installed Fuppes a few weeks back when I first got my Drobo + Drobo Share, but alas, I no-longer have the archive. Sorry. I guess you’ll have to pester DRI to fix the file.
Glad to hear it’s a busted file, and not me or my drobo. I have been fiddling around with trying to install a linux build from there site and all goes fine until i try and run the configure file with ./configure. It gives me an error saying,
sed: applet not found
sed: applet not found
configure: error: cannot create configure.lineno; rerun with a POSIX shell
Im assuming it has something to do with the fact the drobo is running BusyBox v1.1.2 (2007.06.18-15:03+0000) Built-in shell (ash). Any thoughts on installing a version straight from fuppes site?
I was going through the same madness last night and this morning when I realized that the file was too small. I will keep my eyes on this thread for updates. Thanks![hr]
I found a full size version on another thread… look at this link… http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=6
Good idea but the link provided above works, when i say works Fuppes crashes A LOT when rebuilding the database but it does work. However in fixing my Upnp my iTunes server has been knocked out, I wonder if the two are linked?
I have the same problem; it will not build a database encompassing all of the music and videos (yes, I have enabled the swap-space DroboApp). I only really bought the Drobo (plus Share) to run Fuppes, so it is useless to me without it. That’s one of the reasons I’m returning it and re-building my old Linux NAS box…
But you’re right: the media it does detect and add to the database is shared across the network fine.
Im getting the exact same result as before using that link. Step by step here is what im doing:
Download the file from the link you gave.
Unzip the downloaded file, and place the fuppes.tgz file in the droboapps folder.
Go to droboapps admin page and restart droboshare.
Check droboapps folder.
Here is where i dont get it. In the fuppes folder it creates, there are only two files.
Fuppes with no extension which is 6.3mb and admin.url which is 4kb and contains only “:49201”. When clicking on the fuppes configure link from droboapps admin I get nothing but server error.
From reading other forums I think I am supposed to have a lot more files in the fuppes folder. Any ideas on where I’m going wrong?
I found it struggles when asking to create a database for lots of folders at once. Tonight I’m going to try rebuilding my video folder, then updating my database rather then a rebuild after adding my music folder the idea being that it should skip over the video folder and put less strain on the Drobo…possibly :s
What would happen if you copied your files over to your nas box, created the database on Fuppes their (didn’t have a problem doing this on my Fressnas) and then copies that file to the Drobo, then if my theory on “Updating” rather then “Rebuilding” does put less stress on the Drobo you can update when new material is added.
In theory, it should work. You’d need to make sure that the paths to the media files are the same on both the Drobo and the machine you used to build the database.
From reading about Fuppes on the Drobo, it doesn’t like to update the database - it seems to need a complete database re-build each time. I’ve tried updating an existing database and not had much luck, so it does seem to be the case. For me, at least.
