Pi-Hole updates


I just finished updating Pi-Hole after receiving quite some reports about the app not working especially on RN1xx ReadyNAS systems. Took me a while to figure out the problem: the binary the app was using seems to be compiled using floating point instructions not available in the CPUs of some ARM based ReadyNAS models. The only solution I could come up with was to build tailored binaries for all newer ReadyNAS systems and release a new version of the app.
So while the version number shows only a minor change there have been lots of modifications under the hood. First tests are promising so it would be nice if the new version of the app could be tested by as many people as possible.

Dropbox drops support for BTFRS (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86)

Hi everyone,

with great sadness I have to say that Dropbox will drop support for BTRFS and some other file systems on Linux starting November 2018.
This will render the DropboxMgr add-on useless – not because of the add-on itself, but because of the decision by Dropbox to drop support for the file system used on modern ReadyNAS boxes in their Linux client, which is what the add-on uses behind the scenes. There’s nothing I can do to fix that and thus I already made the add-on unavailable from this web site.

Now, how does this affect current users of the add-on? If you’re just using the add-on for global synchronization, i.e. if you’re using just one Dropbox account to sync your data, you should be able to switch to the Dropbox sync functionality provided by the ReadyNAS in the “Cloud” tab of the ReadyNAS web UI. If, however, you were using the add-on to sync to different Dropbox accounts (which was the main reason for the add-on) then unfortunately there’s no solution that will allow you to continue to emulate that functionality in the future.

I have no idea what made Dropbox to decide that only Ext4 will be supported from November on but that’s the way it is. I’m sorry for all of you who are affected by this decision and I’d like to thank you for your support over the years but sadly the story of the DropboxMgr add-on ends here.

Gitea 1.5.0 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 / ARM & RAIDiator 4 x86)

Gitea 1.5.0 has been released so I updated the apps/add-ons for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 & ARM) as well as the add-on for ReadyNAS systems still running RAIDiator 4 (x86):

SABnzbd 2.3.4 (ReadyNAS OS 6 All Platforms & RAIDiator 5 ARM & RAIDitator 4 x86)

Another update to SABnzbd. Version 2.3.4 is out for ReadyNAS OS 6 on the x86 and ARM platforms and for RAIDiator 4 on x86 as well as for RAIDiator 5 on ReadyNAS ARM. Of course those versions also include (or build on install) the latest version of sabyenc.
So, here are the addons:

Transmission 2.94 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 & ARM)

Since I was asked to provide a newer version of the Transmission app for ReadyNAS OS 6, here we go:
