    Latest Desktop Build 2.6.3

    uh-oh, I've always used sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install --only upgrade resilio-sync. I'm just linux beginner, and these commands have always got me that latest version. Presumably from the comments above I have to now download then install manually ..... arghhh. Do you have a tutorial on how I might do this .... do I just download my architecture (armhf) and then put in a directory somewhere? Cheers, Geoff. P.S. I have one bug that an update will fix, but I can live with it until you sort apt-get updates .... is there any prospect of this happening soon?

    armhf 2.6

    hi I have a Vero4K+ (osmc) which runs armhf. ( I've added resilio to you still use 'sudo apt-get install resilio-sync' to install 2.6. (Seems to install an older version). do i just need to wait until 2.6 is added online? Cheers, Geoff.
  3. hi Recently i'm getting a lot of DB errors; typcially when i reboot my server (osmc debian on Pi). Looking at the pi shutdown processes it does appear to stop the resilio-sync service. Have you recently made a change to the DB or something that makes sync more susceptible to these errors. (other pi i manage have similar issues). cheers, geoff.
  4. I have a 10 peer network. Some of my peers can't see other peers. (i.e. peer 3 can see all peers except 4, yet peer 4 can see all peers except 3). I've looked at FAQs, and the suggested fixes aren't really applicable (mostly FW related) as peers 3 and 4 are bone-fide members of the 'swarm', yet can see each other. Its like they don't get along. Suggestions appreciated. Cheers, Geoff.

    niceness - how to set

    hi Is there a way to set the niceness of resilio-sync? If i recall correctly this was a parameter available during the btsync CLI setup process. How do i set in resilio-sync please? OS = OSMC Cheers, Geoff

    How to get around t-mobile

    have you tried Opera VPN.
  7. hi I'm trying to change the user resilio-sync runs under from rslsync to osmc. I've followed the instructions here, and I can successfully change the user, however once changed I can no longer access the http GUI - page doesn't load.... Before rslsync user change After I edit file /usr/lib/systemd/user/resilio-sync.service and change "" to "". Save. Then enable the service: systemctl --user enable resilio-sync Reboot, and sudo service resilio-sync status indicates sync running well as osmc user- But no GUI ......coincided with change of user. Do I need to make something executable to allow another part of sync to run, such as the tiny webserver which serves the GUI? If I look at service status mostly looks OK, except for 'failed to read PID from file'. Perhaps I need to make osmc user 777 on any suggestions, cheers, Geoff.
  8. Hey Firstly, please pass on my thanks to your engineers, looks like Rsilio sync runs really efficiently on OSMC running on my Pi. Good job and horray, Nice not to be on an obscure 2.0.93 version to get low CPU usage. My question is this....where is the .conf file which is generated when i first install Sync, and can i edit it carte blanche? I figure there must be a config file somewhere I can tweak. I've reviewed which suggests in could be in either: /var/lib/resilio-sync if launched as default rslsync user (i think this the default, and how mine almost certainly appears to be running, but i can't find config file) /home/username/.config/resilio-sync/storage if launched as current user. (not the default when doing basic sudo apt-get install resilio-sync install and run) If i want to create a custom config do i need to download one as per instructions, downloading sample config, then editing and storing in the /home path above? If the answer is yes, how do i then modify sync to run automatically as user rather than rslsync like it appears to with default 'out of the box config'? Is there another 'master' config I edit to point to the particular config i wish to load at startup? Sorry for the N00b questions. Cheers, Geoff.
  9. hi I get an error message when I follow install instructions here.... This is what I've done: Created entry in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/resilio-sync.list, and put in the test added new locations... Added key with command (result OK) I've tried both methods stated (ARM64 and RPi) and when I enter sudo apt-get update I get following error about list... Am I doing something wrong? Cheers, Geoff.

    rebuilding debian - where is identity?

    thanks, does that mean if i've added or removed shared folder something related to identity won't work..... i.e. more than just the added / removed folder will be amiss? Cheers, Geoff.
  11. hi I need to rebuild a machine and would like to retain the sync ID of the original machine. Can I copy from old, then rebuild new and paste back in? If so, what files would I need to retain and replant in new? Cheers, Geoff.
  12. hi Could you tell me if current ARM version for RPI 3 (running OSMC) still usages lots of CPU. I'm currently running some unsupported / wildcat version of Sync and I would like to upgrade to latest / supported version, but not if CPU usage still really high as I don't have cycles to spare on my little media centre. The version I'm currently using is 2.0.93 and I got it from . Cheers, Geoff.

    Raspberry Pi - Edit configuration via Nano

    thanks I'm afraid I've only got this package available from deb wheezy main contrib non-free / deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free. Version 2.0.93. I've tried latest release however seems to be always indexing and chews through lots of CPU. Is there a method of modifying logging this older version....i don't appear to have a file called debug.txt in this directory. Cheers, Geoff.
  14. Hi How might one reduce to amount of logging which accumulates in day-to-day operation of my Pi? My SD card isn't very large, and I'm concerned that the constant activity generated by Sync might consume more that its fair share of storage. I assume thing like log TTL or other variables related to the retention of log files / journals have a variable somewhere. Where would I find this variable in Debian / OSMC? These more granular variables don't seem to appear in the web GUI. Cheers, Geoff.
  15. I've poked around my OSMC looked for a sync folder which might hold a residual identity. I'm thinking that there is a residual identity which is propagated to clones, even when a new device name / identity is created in that clone (and the clone is reconfigured via reconfiguration process using sudo dpkg-reconfigure btsync command), and that perhaps because of this when a folder is shared from server to clone, the original peer and its clone don't play nicely as they see each others identity as the same, rather than different. I don't suppose the server likes seeing 2 peers with unique identifiers either. If i look in the /var/lib/btsync fold there is a hidden directory called .SyncUser[someuniquenumber]. Should I edit / delete this folder, then reinstall / reconfigure / unlink or otherwise to give this clone, and subsequent clones their own unique identity. I suppose, worst case i could do a sudo apt-get remove btsync, delete the directory /var/lib/btsync, then do a sudo apt-get install btsync to start fresh with each clone? Perhaps is a non nuclear option, such as editing this file...... What do you think? Cheers, Geoff.
