No apt get install in Fedora version

Hello!


I'd like to check the following question:

Few times ago I bought Lenovo Beacon NAS (and regretted about that for already 100 times..)..

It has some kind of Lunix running as OS:

Code:
[root@BEACON ~]# cat /etc/*-release
Fedora release 16 (Verne)
Fedora release 16 (Verne)
Fedora release 16 (Verne)

It has XBMC service running on board. But the version of this media server is very old, it does not support a lot of video (only few formats and few codecs). I wanted to upgrade the version to the newest one (which was renamed to KODI). But seems I don't have package installer in that OS:

Code:
[root@BEACON ~]# apt-get install kodi
-bash: apt-get: command not found
I'd like to ask your help in solving this issue. I'm completely noob in unix systems, so I'm not sure how to act...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Please let me know if you need any other information (with example of command to get the info, please =))

Re: No apt get install in Fedora version

Crikey that's an old version of Fedora. I've moved your thread because technically the operating system is end of life

in answer to your question though, instead of apt-get install you would use the command

Code:
yum install kodi
however, because your fedora release is so old I don't think it will work. the required supporting libraries the kodi instructions on their wiki refer to are seemingly no longer available for that build of Fedora from rpmfusion. they only host libraries for three versions of fedora on their servers by the looks of it.

Hi,


thanks for the information!

Than my next question is - is it possible to install new version of Fedora through terminal (it could be a dump question, cause I'm not familiar with *unix and don't imagine how the process of upgrading OS version looks like)? I guess that this NAS has it's own storage soldered somewhere on boar (where current system is installed).

Re: No apt get install in Fedora version

theoretically you could attempt a network install from the command prompt but the operating system appears be stored like a firmware image in ROM chips that mobile phones use. so I'd hazard a guess it isn't possible unless there's a custom ROM available you can install first from the opensource community.

Re: No apt get install in Fedora version

That's a pity...

Then the last question - what should I know to check for custom ROM? Some chipset version?

Thanks!

The full device model number as there appears to be more than one Lenovo Beacon judging by their support forum heading for it. It should be on the label that has the serial number etc.

Re: No apt get install in Fedora version

I found a discussion here:
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-...e/td-p/2201904

and they post a link to a firmware update for the Lenovo Beacon.

However, that may not be for your model, need more info for that. The firmware link is:
https://download.lenovo.com/lenovo/c...1.12.2_row.zip

Actually I was able to unpack that file, which is a zipped, .tgz file
which untars into another tgz , which then untars into a .bin file
which is a raid element, probably extracted via dd
then I did the following:

mdadm --examine ./system_p4.bin
which gave me:
Data Offset : 2048 sectors

so then I did the following:
mount -o loop,offset=$((2048*512)) ./system_p4.bin /mnt


and after that, then I did:
[root@nova v1.1.12.2.ROW-1g]# ls -lsca /mnt/boot/
total 11948
4 dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Nov 27 2014 .
4 dr-xr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 Nov 27 2014 ..
84 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 83883 Nov 27 2014 config-2.6.39-1.ce14.23.fc16.i686
4 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Nov 27 2014 grub
6384 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6535380 Nov 27 2014 initramfs-2.6.39-1.ce14.23.fc16.i686.img
1624 -rw------- 1 root root 1661800 Nov 27 2014 System.map-2.6.39-1.ce14.23.fc16.i686
3844 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3934848 Nov 27 2014 vmlinuz-2.6.39-1.ce14.23.fc16.i686


so, I reckon you won't gain anything by using this firmware, as it is FC16 as well.

EDIT: all things said, the one piece of good news is that it appears the Fedora system actually resides on Disk, and not on ROM so based on what I posted above, you maybe able to clone an OS into a firmware update file, however, at great risk of bricking the device, so I would only do this if you really don't care about the device and were about to throw it away.

1.Beacon_v1.1.12.2.ROW.img is the latest firmware for that device.

2.Lenovo released only one model of Lenovo Beacon NAS device.

Can you explain how to update the device to latest fedora?

Would booting live linux distro from usb flash drive working?

there is Lenovo Beacon Storage GPL Source code allready, but it is zip file with some files ?*.tar.gz and I dont know how to work with them (I know unpack them)

I found in other forum that someone was able put in the Lenovo Beacon device the OS6.0 NAS firmware which was for nearly same as NAS device Thecus N2520 (choose Linux NAS and then N2520), but he was not able to get working wifi and usb if I remember.

I WOULD (AND MANY OTHERS OWNERS OF THIS DEVICE) APPRECIATE ANY HELP TO UPDATE THIS DEVICE. THX!
