Freedombox is great
After “re-learning” old habits like syncing via Dropbox, using google-calendar, saving kontacts in the cloud, … I start tu see the benefits more and more.
Today, dough, a strange thing occurred to me.
My Freedombox was not available via gnuDIP (username.freedombox.rocks), and it said the connection is insecure.
Not sure if I was hacked or what the reason of this strange behaviour is.
But what I found out is, that my /boot partition was full, and the upgrade to 19.3 was not properly finished. After deleting some of the older kernels and the things that come with it, I did an apt upgrade, and “username.freedom box.rocks” did not give me a server not found anymore.
Still can not connect, since my letsencrypt cert is gone, and asking for a new one gave me a
No certificate followed by a
“There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: …”
I didn’t ask for a single one, since I had one.
Next week I am allowed to get a new one.
I am looking forward to use my bax again.
- The Box has a great potential. Especially with new apps like minidlna and samba.
- For nontechnical users there is quite some steps to take. To the convenience of a mobile phone is still quite a walk. We will have a lot of fun to go and get there. Thanks to all the people involved.
