Also, who are you using for your DNS records to point to your home server?
If your not on a static IP, you will want to write / install a program to check your external IP and then update your DNS records if changes.
Yip I'm using DNS records to point to my home server and a static IP (free on my plan).
I've been trying all afternoon to get the thing to boot up on Bananian but it's just not happening. Might try another OS...
When I write the bananian-141102.img to a 8GB SD card it finishes successfully but the card itself goes all funky and GParted can't make head or tail of what file-system is on it. And the BP doesn't boot. If I write the same image to the external HDD it also writes successfully and has a valid file system but I need a SD card installed to boot.
SanDisk Extreme Pro 45MB/s 8GB Copy the Code
- $ sudo dd if=~/Desktop/bananian-141102.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=1M && sync
- [sudo] password for user:
- 1938+1 records in
- 1938+1 records out
- 2032664576 bytes (2.0 GB) copied, 44.7084 s, 45.5 MB/s
Some users had to change the display output settings to see anything:
I got HDMI working with the Debian-based distributions. I had to change the UEnv.txt under the boot partition fromdisp.screen0_output_mode=EDID:1280x720p50 to disp.screen0_output_mode=EDID:1920x1080p60
I think I will have to change this also but I can't because once the Bananian image is on the SD card, the file system is screwed. I might try using GParted to copy the valid file system the image created on the HDD to the SD card.
Does anyone know exactly what is needed on the SD card so make it boot from the HDD. On the Raspberry Pi this was easy just copy my SD card partition to a HDD and expand the partition then change one word in the config from mmcblk0p1 to sda1. But first I need a booting, SD card...
At this stage all I get is a solid red LED while it's on, no boot.
No matter. I expected many many difficulties! This is the first of many I'm sure
