Thankfully Empegbbs and the Wiki are still in place or I wouldn't remember how to put in a new hard drive.

So thanks to the admins for keeping things around for us die-hards that will probably putting our Empegs in our freaking Wills.... wink

Locked away in the admin's files. We've pleaded for it, or a copy of it to mend, but no luck thus far. Someday perhaps.

Hey there! Thanks for the reply.

Wow -- that sucks... frown

Meanwhile, I've never set up jEmplode for pushing empeg images...

I'm using CentOS 6.x which has the RXTX library available from EPEL... (which I installed)

but when I run jEmplode, I still get:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/comm/CommPortIdentifier

This is what the RPM package provides:

In the longer form of the error box that pops up in jEmplode:

But do I need to do anything else? (how do I test the jar file is being referenced properly? I assume it is having been packaged by the EPEL folks..)

(I created javax.comm.properties in /usr/lib/java/ but that doesn't seem to help.)

Thanks,

-Ben

Try a different Linux distro, one far removed from Redhat/CentOS. It will probably work then.

Cheers

Mmmm. Nothing like copying GB of music files at 10Base-T speeds.

LoL...

wait -- some of you may appreciate this...

I had to fix a Cisco Switch with a failed firmware upgrade.

14MB w/Xmodem @ 57600B/s --- hahaha... took like 2.5 hours.

(but it worked!)

Heh -- yea... I didn't have any doubt it would live on -- just the CF card died.

Such a shame. Solid State devices aren't supposed to go kaput like that.

This one was only 5 or so years old. I kinda expect more life than that.

Was the fix ultimately finding a 32bit version of rxtx? Or did you go another route to push images to the empeg ahead of getting it back on ethernet?

Ha -- I ended up booting up the VBox VM of my old winXP Dev System to use Emplode to install the image. (my current windows 7 Pro/64 system is unstable with USB RS232 dongles. BSoD in 20-freakin-17.

Sad. Bigly Sad.

I'll figure out the RXTX thing at some point.

Ugh -- Now I'm trying to re-install the web pages (weblite) and can't remember the right syntax for mounting the drive RW so I can copy the files over. frown

(or is there an easier way to push the single default.xsl and it's little subdir to the system?)
