**My freedombox is plugged into my home router.
**I ordered my kit last week (oct 29 2020) from olimex and received it shortly after. I plugged it in today for the first time.
**My box is running Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) and FreedomBox version 19.2. The ‘?’-page indicates that there is a new version available. I ran the manual update twice from the system/update page, and though I can’t see anything updating, the freedombox won’t re-boot because > ‘Currently an installation or upgrade is running.’
First impressions :
*tinyRSS works great.
*Tor network works great.
*Searx works. For every other search, the ‘General’ tab of the page will return empty, though.
*MatrixSynapse could never install - packages were broken. Too bad: this app was my main motivation for diving into the box.
*deluge installed and ran. I couldn’t get it to connect to the web, though.
*Radicale installed but never opened - the server just gives me 503 error.
*privoxy installed and ran, though it blocked every page I tried to visit with it. Configuration page showed the server as offline, and I couldn’t load the user manual page.
*Certificate never got assigned. I tried several domain names, but the processed just crashed on every attempt with errors the likes of:
"Failed to obtain certificate for domain perken.freedombox.fr: Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator webroot, Installer None Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: http-01 challenge for perken.freedombox.fr Using the webroot path /var/www/html for all unmatched domains. Waiting for verification... Cleaning up challenges Failed authorization procedure. perken.freedombox.fr (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:dns :: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for perken.freedombox.fr - check that a DNS record exists for this domain"
*After trying to setup the certificate for the third time, the box itself crashed. After turning it off and on again a couple of times, the box stopped responding. Currently https://freedombox.local/ doesn’t open and I’m locked out.
Is there anything I can do at this point ?
