After the next build of the Pli-images there will be a new BackupSuite (version 6.1. beta) available in the feed.
This new BackupSuite will make back-ups following the new rules if you installed the bootloaders from > 23-09-2011
So the folders will be named according to the series where the box belongs to
The et9000, et9100 and et9500 will be back upped to et9x00
The et6000 to et6x00
The et5000 and the et5500 to et5x00 etc.
For the time being the back-up will be also made following the "normal/old" way, so in the folders according to the model.
So to summarize: The back-up will be placed in 2 places, in one folder following the range numbering of the receiver, e.g. et9x00, and the other place is in the folder according the modelnumber.
If you want to try the BackupSuite already just replace the file /usr/bin/build-combi.sh with the attached one
Here is a new version of the backup suite based on a new concept. The code had to be cleaned up, because it was hard to let it run cleanly.
Some things you should know:
- First remove the old version that can be done as follows:
Menu -> Remove red button Plugins - -> Extensions> system plugins -> backup suite <language>
If this does not work, you can try it with telnet
opkg remove "eni gma2-plugin-system-backup suite *" - force-removal-of-dependent-packages
opkg remove "eni gma2-plugin-system-backup suite *" - autoremove
You should look on the box if the folders are gone, they are usually in
/ usr / lib / eni gma2/python/Plugins/SystemPlugins/Combi-HDD-Backup /
/ usr / lib / eni gma2/python/Plugins/SystemPlugins/Combi-USB-Backup /
These two folders should now be gone.
Restart after uninstalling the box please once again with "Restart eni gma2"
Then install the new version. The new folder for the backup suite can be generated in
/ usr / lib / eni gma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/BackupSuite-HDD /
/ usr / lib / eni gma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/BackupSuite-USB /
There are now only one package called backup suite (eni gma2-plugins-extensions-backupsuite_ <version>, currently V6.7), there are no more different languages.
Please feel free you to test this new version, I'm open to suggestions and changes to the German translation.
A final word: this version needs to install an Internet connection to necessary files such as. mkfs.ubifs reload.
And yet another new version, version 7.0. This time some corrections in the languagefile(s) and an new translation, French! (Thanks Demosat!) It could be that some é è á ü etc leters are still missing because of the first versions a wrong code was used and the special character got lost in translation.
If there are persons who want to add another language feel free, in the folder locale is a .po file with the name Default.po, this file can be used to add a language. The file can be edited by any texteditor or with the program Poedit which can make a translated file (.mo) Poedit can be found at: Here
I also forgot to thank Biki3 and Bonsai Baum for their German translations.
The new version is attached at the end of this message.
Here are some screens from the French version
Here is a new version of the BackupSuite. The only changes compared with the 7.0 version is the addition of a new language-file. The Russian language is added thanks to Odyssey (not sure if he is on this forum but nevertheless Thanks!)
The supported languages are now: English (default), German, French, Dutch and Russian.
Another new version of the BackupSuite, version 7.3 now supporting the Polish language.
The supported languages are now: English (default), Dutch, French, German, Polish and Russian.
BackupSuite for Openpli 3.0 version > 10
FOR OPENPLI 3.0 ONLY
Here's the latest version of the plugin BackupSuite, suitable for Openpli 3.0 / Open Embedded 2.0.
In this first post you'll always find the latest public version of the BackupSuite for Open Embedded 2.0.
The BackupSuite is capable of making full back-ups of a running system. The back-up contains all files and settings as they are on the system at the moment of making the back-up.
In case of emergency or any other mishap you are capable of restoring your system in a matter of a few minutes (< 5 ).
The BackupSuite can back-up the Xtrend models ET9x00, ET6x00 and ET5x00. Also are all VU+ models supported.
After installation* you will find 2 entries in the Menu under Menu -> Plugins (or in German Menu -> Erweiterungen)
Fullback-up to USB and (German: Voll-Backup direkt auf USB)
Fullback-up to HDD/USB (German: Voll-Backup auf HDD/USB)
*Installation has to be done with a working internet connection to be able to fetch the required package mtd-utils from the feed)
Fullback-up to USB (Voll-Backup direkt auf USB)
This option makes a back-up directly to an USB-flashdrive, however there is one condition that has to be fulfilled and that's there MUST be a file on the USB-flashdrive with the name backupstick or backupstick.txt or whatever name containing the word backupstick. So a file with the name: hands_off_this_is_my_backupstick.txt is also valid! It doesn't matter if UPPER- or lower-case letters are used or even a mix of those 2.
This back-up will be written on 2 places, one in the folder representing the modelnumber e.g. ET9x00 and in a folder with the name fullbackup_et9x00, this is your archive of all back-ups made directly to this USB-flashdrive.
Fullback-up to HDD/USB (Voll-Backup auf HDD/USB)
This option does the same as above except that it is on a harddrive (or NAS) and there is no need for a file with the name backupstick.
This option does provide an extra option namely copy the made back-up directly from HDD to an USB-flashdrive. If you place a valid USB-stick, as mentioned above, before or during the back-up process then the made back-up will also be copied to this drive at the end of the process.
The supported languages are now: English (default), Dutch, French, German, Polish, Russian and Spanish
