Updating pyload to the newest version

A user asked me a few days ago, how to update pyload to the newest version. I will show the example of the update to pyload 0.4.7, but the Steps are the same for future versions.

So here it is:

/opt/etc/init.d/S95startPyload.sh stop
cd /opt
mv pyload pyload-old
wget http://get.pyload.org/get/src/
unzip pyload-src*.zip
rm pyload-src-*.zip
cp -R /opt/pyload-old/.pyload /opt/pyload/
cd /opt/pyload/
python pyLoadCore.py --changedir --configdir=/opt/pyload/.pyload
python pyLoadCore.py

This is the log of it:

10.08.2011 15:34:08 INFO Starting pyLoad 0.4.7

10.08.2011 15:34:18 INFO *** Plugins have been updated, please restart pyLoad ***

The press “CTRL+C” to stop pyload which results in the following output:

10.08.2011 15:34:58 INFO shutting down…
10.08.2011 15:34:58 INFO killed pyLoad from Terminal

Now set the User again:

cd /opt/pyload/
python pyLoadCore.py -u

This looks like this, i’ve marked my input bold:

/opt/pyload# python pyLoadCore.py -u
Select action
1 – Create/Edit user
2 – List users
3 – Remove user
4 – Quit

Password: MyPasswordForUser
Password (again): MyPasswordForUser
Select action
1 – Create/Edit user
2 – List users
3 – Remove user
4 – Quit
[1]/2/3/4: 4

The Start pyload again:

/opt/etc/init.d/S95startPyload.sh start

If everything works, you can delete the previous version (otherwise you can go back to this version):

rm -Rf /opt/pyload-old

D-Link DNS-345 Sharecenter Quattro – A new 4-Bay NAS

DNS-345 FrontToday i’ve search through the various country-FTP-sites of D-Link and found a few hints regarding a new NAS from D-Link, the DNS-345. The NAS is a 4-Bay-NAS featuring nearly everything you might dream of. But i’ll beginn from the start.

According to the Datasheet (Mirror) and the Manual (Mirror), the DNS-345 can hold up to 12TB of S-ATA-Harddisks (4*3TB) which can be configured as RAID 1/5/5+Hotspare/10/Single Disk/JBOD. The data can be transferred using the two 10/100/1000Mbit Ethernet Ports, which can be configured for Link Aggregation in various modes.

The Front bezel contains a OLED Display with 128×32 Pixels resolution which can show various informations about the current state of the device like the System Information/Temperature, LAN/Volume status and USB Backups.

The device weights 2.7kg, it’s dimensions are (W*D*H) 128 x 200 x 178 mm. It operates from 0°C to 40°C. The external power adapter provides 19V with 4.74A; the NAS consumes about 53W in normal operation and 13.5W in Sleep mode.

The most important thing: The device is fun_plug-enabled!
