As part of upgrading / rebuilding with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and the sheer amount of packages that come with the upgrade or port fresh install, I looked into how to speed that up a bit further. I mentioned already before apt-cacher-ng to run a local proxy and avoid downloading the same packages over and over for multiple systems. However on 2 systems I have a huge amount of sources.lists which makes even the apt-get update process very slow / time consuming. So I looked into how to speed that one up bit. in Fedora/CentOS/RedHat there is a tool called deltarpm which adds support for downloading the deltas to generate new or updated packages. The there is a similar tool in Ubuntu / Debian. Debdelta “debdelta is a program suite designed to compute changes between Debian packages. These changes (deltas) are similar to the output of the “diff” program in that they may be used to […]

Update History: 15.10.2014 – Broken qpkg btsync 1.4.76 update to BT Version 1.4.91 BTSync is THE killerapp for my NAS. It seperates me from all the cloud storage flaws out there. Unfortunately the current version provided by Qnap qpkg btsync 1.4.76 is broken and buggy like hell. There is a new version available from BTSync but i may take a while until it gets updated by QNap. There is a way to manually update it. Disclaimer: This worked for me fine from 1.4.76 as a base. There wont be any support from Qnap on this method. The download link provided below is for the ARM CPU QNap NAS. If you have an Atom CPU please fetch the right package from http://www.getsync.com/download. You need to ssh to you Qnap NAS as admin. and follow those steps. cd ~admin wget -O ~admin/btsync.tar http://download.getsyncapp.com/endpoint/btsync/os/linux-arm/track/stable tar xvf btsync.tar We need to stop btsync and wait a bit till […]

There is a build into Owncloud updater, which for whatever reason didn’t work for me. There is also a guide on how to update a self hosted Owncloud under http://doc.owncloud.org/server/6.0/admin_manual/maintenance/update.html However I find it lacks a few things, so I wrote up my own steps since I use a self hosted Owncloud instance on a server. This applies to the current version 6.0.0 to 6.0.1 upgrade 1. It is recommended to deactivate all 3rd party applications in Owncloud. 2. To Upgrade I performed the following steps as root in the web servers root directory above the “owncloud” home directory. 3. Make a backup of the ownCloud folder. rsync -a owncloud/ owncloud_bkp`date +”%Y%m%d”`/ 4. Download the latest version to the root directory above owncloud: wget http://download.owncloud.org/community/owncloud-6.0.1.tar.bz2 5. Delete everything from your ownCloud installation directory, except data and config. (Your data directory should be a separate “external” directory unless you have it configured it […]
