During the installation there has to be CF
card in the Dreambox (attention: insert or remove
into Dreambox 7025 cardreader only when Dreambox
is turned off), or an USB stick which is successfully
detected (in case of problems try an USB Hub).
If Barry Allen on USB is used then put
the CVS Image from OoZooN in Flash, because this image
has the USB drivers permanently built into the kernel.
If neither CF card not USB Stick are attached then
installation takes place on the Harddisk. Because
the images then also run from there it will run
permanently and it could be necessary that you disable
Harddisk Standby in the images to allow running Barry
Allen stable from Harddisk.
First boot from Flash and then copy the file
to /tmp with ftp (TCP/IP must be working already).
If you have an image in Flash that offers a Blue
Pannel Manual Addon Install, then you can use this
functionality to install the ipk file.
If not, then install Barry Allen by entering the
following commands in a Telnet session:
ipkg install /tmp/enigma2-plugin-extensions-barryallen*.ipk
Then restart enigma2 and the Barry Allen Plugin
shoudl show up under Games / Plugins.
In the Images installed by Barry Allen you don't have
to install the Barry Allen Plugin anymore.
The Barry Allen Plugin integrates himself into then
automatically during the image extract.
And you can remove Barry Allen if you are booted
ipkg remove enigma2-plugin-extensions-barryallen
There is now the enigma2 Plugin of Barry Allen included
under Games / Plugins of the enigma2 menu,
which offers the full functionality of Barry Allen.
For extracting of nfi images in Barry Allen copy the
image files to /MB_Images (normally a link to
/media/hdd/MB_Images created during Barry Allen
If there are Problems with image extraction or other tasks
with the enigma2 plugin try doing it in telnet:
ba.sh extract nameoftheimage
On the next reboot this new Image should be available
in the bootmanager for choosing to boot it and then it
can be customized and used as usual.
The Bootmanager now should remember the last booted
image and hence recordings from Deepstandby should work
Have Fun using Barry Allen on the Dreambox !!!!
Barry Allen 4.8.2 for Dreambox 7025, 800, 8000
Barry Allen NT (New Technology) Beta Kit(4.8.4)
A new test release
Barryallen XPS P2c
Barryallen XPS P2d is a BETA
Because of the more and more popular udev I had to adapt the deivce handling Barry Allen
Therefore this is a kind of experimental BA Thread where you have the possibility to help to finish and test this new development, without confusing people used to download their BA kit from the normal BA thread.
Actually thuis thread was planned to never exist, because if my ordered 8k would have been delivered already i would have testet it there myself and simply post a new version 4.7, but this seems to be not possible so far
On the otehr hand, since 1 year I'm struggeling with the extra devices for the device handling for the 8* boxes, which made the code more and more complex, added extra boottime for everybody and this approach is now reaching it's limit of maintenanceability with the new udev
BTW it is sad that I now have to do this in this thread, but if my dealer is not able to deliver a box after 4.5 months. Bit this seems the way it seems to be.
Now about the BA XP kit - it is only a renamed BA 4.8.5 kit to prevent misunderstandings that you simpy install it an everything is as before :-)
What doens't work ath the moment ?
Wally West doesn#t work at the moment - don't even tzry it, the WW support has to be re-added to the kit, but thill only happen if normal BA work on the 7025/800/8000 without WW ans usual.
The Filesystemcheck and device formatting will not work - don't use/try bainit 9* or 8*
The Supprt for MB_*.tar.bz2 images is also no t working yet.
And USB devices are only supported in images if they show up as /media/sda1 or /media/usb, os either add them to the right port or attach only them as the BA doku always said.
And booting from Harddisk is not tested at all - as usual :-)
The kit is simpley there to see if you can unpack nfi files and boot them and if all needed devices how up as usual.
Import is that BA doen't extend the fstab anymore at all, and be also not scared by this - the BA device should be mounted at /media/ba or linked to with the /media/ba link as usual.
So better flash and unpack new images, old images from previoous BA installations should work, but changes BA made there to teh fstab will not be undone.
Well, and how should it work now:
BA devices is mounted as usual but now at the default /meida/ba location or the /media/ba link is pointing there.
In an image without udev everything is mounted via the fstab as before but the BA devices has not to be in the fstab anymore.
Well, and testing this in all variations (with udev image in Flash or on BA device or vice versa) is not your job to test on all enigma2 boxes !
