Odroid HC2/Seagate Expansion Desktop write failures

During lengthy USB copy procedures I have started to get write failures on the above setup. To be specific, it's a Seagate Expansion Desktop hard drive connected to the single USB port on my Odroid HC2. The hard drive is mounted on /dev/sda. Rsync gives this sort of error: "write failed" "Read-only ...

Re: dietpi file ownership question

I think you are saying have dietpi and username be in the same group. Is that right?

This is the kind of thing I've never been able to get my head around but I'm trying to learn.

dietpi file ownership question

Hi. Bear with me, this might be a stupid question but I'll try and describe it succinctly: I think I'm running my DietPi server in a pretty out-of-the-box manner as regards ownership and permissions. I move files in via NFS from another Linux box, and when they get there they're owned by dietpi:diet...

Re: Naming convention change

Ah, brilliant. Done. transmission-daemon is now running as debian-transmission user. Good to know the other services are set up right.

Thanks for your help with this.

Re: Naming convention change

Michalng, thanks for offering to check.

These are the services I've got running as root now, that I'm not sure about: transmission-daemon, fail2ban, smbd/nmbd and dropbear.

Appreciate the offer to advice, thanks.

dietpi is actually up-to-date, no need for concern there.

Naming convention change

Hi there folks. I note with encouragement that in recent releases you've started to shift the use of the user root in software packages towards using dietpi or something instead. I got my Odroid HC2 last Spring and stuck DietPi on it straight away, putting all my software in place in the space of a ...

Turn off the samba client

I've accidentally configured the Samba client when I don't have any Samba servers to connect to. How do I turn it off? Dietpi-config doesn't have the option. I've tried editing the fstab but dietpi apps still attempt to mount my non-existent server causing delays.
