  1. DSM 5.0-4493 Update 7

    I did the same thing also, updated my Xpenology box without the SSH command and my DSM version is also showing up as Update 7. All files and permission are intact. Strange! Another strange thing that I found out is that my real Synology box, a DS110j, does *NOT* show Update 7 when I checked for updates. It's currently at DSM 5.0-4493 Update 5 and according to the status, it is still up-to-date. Maybe the shell shock security issue doesn't affect ARM-based Synology NAS?
  2. Migration from bare metal to VM?

    Super helpful link! Thanks, Shteve!
  3. Migration from bare metal to VM?

    Cool! Found the link: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3497 I'll give this a go. Thanks for your tip and suggestion, XPEH.
  4. Migration from bare metal to VM?

    Thanks, XPEH. I didn't realize that Virtualbox can be installed on top of DSM. Would you have the link for this? Also, how much does DSM degrade in a VM compared to bare metal?
  5. Migration from bare metal to VM?

    Why? I want to run another VM for a service or software which unfortunately is not supported in XPE or Linux. And if there's a way that can be done without losing data then I wouldn't have to restore from backup.
  6. While XPEnology has been working great in bare metal configuration for me so far (DSM 5.0-4493 U5), I'm looking to migrate to a virtual environment, with most probably ESXi, to run other VMs on the same hardware (Intel I3-4150). So do I start from scratch or can I migrate without losing data on the HDD in the bare metal config? Either way I will be doing a backup before hand, but a migration path obviously would be better. BTW, I've looked for guides in this forum but most are starting from scratch.
  7. Sorry to revive an old thread but has this feature been tested, mff? Also, are these options added in the grub menu? And lastly, if this works could it work with nanoboot as well, provided that intel_idle driver is there?
  8. Thanks for reporting this, but do you have any power numbers (idle/load)? The cpu performance is comparable if not better than J1900, although with higher TDP.
  9. Powernow-k8 power saving

    There's one more thing that you may be able to do, which is to install DSM with gnoboot 10.5 on a temporary setup or hard drive. Then you can extract powernow-k8.ko from/lib/module and save somewhere else (maybe the usb stick). As you re-install with nanoboot to the desired setup, import that file to /lib/module. I thought about this for mine but then I went with Intel and didn't go through that step.
  10. Powernow-k8 power saving

    jkm, yes I ran into the same problem that you saw: nanoboot doesn't include powernow-k8.ko and acpi-cpufreq could not be insmod'd during boot. I lived with it for a while but I saw an Intel deal I couldn't resist, a $30 G1820 (Haswell) from Microcenter. So I swapped my AMD setup for an Intel version (w/ a B85 mobo that also came on another deal). Essentially it has almost the same performance as the A8-3800 in terms of cpu benchmark but now I have acpi-cpufreq support. Using i7z from ipkg, I can see that cpu idle is using up to C6 now. The cpu performance is used for Plex support by the way. So the short answer is that I didn't solve the nanoboot issue with AMD CPUs. But have you looked at the power usage with a power meter? I had the AMD setup idle power almost equivalent to the Intel setup (27-28W no HDD), by undervolting cpu/mobo but the upper envelope (65W AMD TDP vs 54W Intel TDP) actually is more in AMD: mid-50W vs mid-40W (with 2xHDD).
  11. Fax manager for Synology DSM

    benjistark, you might want to look into installing debian chroot and then install the fax package from the debian package list. There are a few so you would have to do your own research as to which one suits your needs: http://packages.debian.org/stable/comm/ BTW, the easiest way for debian chroot installation is from the Synocommunity package source. http://packages.synocommunity.com
  12. Swapping Volume1 and Volume2

    Raidersan, what is the logic behind using the SSD? Isn't it also on the same SATA controller which is supposed to spin down all the disks in hiberation? The reason I'm asking is because I'm running into the same hibernation issue with Plex and I'm definitely interested in your results. I've isolated the hibernation to just the Plex package through trial and error (turning off each installed package and watch for hibernation). I've also tried turning off all logs and DLNA in Plex, to no avail. Please post your finding once you have it.
  13. Debian chroot tutorial?

    Thanks, spammy. The information from the link works just fine.
  14. Version: 5.0-4493 Update 3 Availble

    You need a little manual work. Look in the other thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3052&start=510 The update works fine for me using this trick.
  15. Debian chroot tutorial?

    Does anybody have any link to a tutorial on using the Debian chroot package from the SynoCommunity package source? There's plenty of links for installing Debian on Synology boxes but the Syno package seems to make installation much easier. However, how do I use the package? I can see that it's installed in /volume1/@appstore/debian-chroot/ but when I run /volume1/@appstore/debian-chroot/var/chroottarget/usr/bin/apt-get I see the following message: ./apt-get: error while loading shared libraries: libapt-pkg.so.4.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Some environment variables need to be set? Thanks in advance.
