Loss of my NAS x86_64

Unfortunately, my Asustor NAS x86_64 (AS5002T) is broken and large part of my data (including development platform) are lost.
And to complete, the NAS use as backup in another place have lost 2 disks of the Raid5 … so without possibility to get back a copy of the data lost.

It’s months of works lost, this particularly impacts myHD, all MH-xxx companion applications, Domoticz, OctoPrint, etc. etc.

I will start a long period (if i have the courage) to try recovering the data, then get a solution for the broken NAS, then restart to build lost weeks of work …


MH-stremio available soon

MH-stremio 4.452 will be available soon
Problems :
NO button bar (close / minimize / size), so NO close button to leave stremio, I have replaced it by a keyboard control key (<CRTL>x)
So … keyboard is mandatory to used stremio
Install is long (12 minutes on AS5002T) and lock Ubuntu during some seconds, due to APKG timeout and Asportal timeout (80 sec.), the install will be done in background and a message is displayed on screen (auto-close after 10 sec) during the install phase. BE PATIENT.
Also Asportal on mouse move put app. (so message) in full screen … OK button is in bottom right.
waiting message


MH18/MH16-pmp v 2.35.1

MH18-pmp (for myHD Ubuntu 18.04)
MH16-pmp (for myHD Ubuntu 16.04)
are available for download.
Each was compiled natively … it’s not an AppImage or other package . In fact with the correct libraries installed … all run in any Ubuntu environment.

The new things is a new interface (UNO UI) that you can test following this simple check in main settings Link help you and show screenshot :


New MH-apkg format

With next myHD version we introduce differentiator between Ubuntu environment supported by MH-apkg (companion application to myHD)
MH-apkg … are for all Ubuntu (1604 or 1804) it’s generally because we use the software and dependency provide by Ubuntu repository.
MH18-apkg … are ONLY for Ubuntu 18.04 (ex. when require libraries are not available in 16.04 or recompilation are necessary for software available only as source code).
MH16-apkg … idem but ONLY for 16.04.

Due to change in name … in case of update from old MH-xxx and new MH18(or 16)-xxx, you are invited to remove the old MH-xxx after you install the new one (only for Plex Media Player at this time).


myHD Ubuntu 18.04 available (this week May 11,12 2019)

Hi, I am please to inform you that myHD now support Ubuntu 18.04
18.04 L.T.S. can be installed (default for new install) as a fresh one
if 16.04 is already installed in parallel … with a switch command to change version use by myHD.

Ubuntu 18.04 require to update myHD (if already installed) to v. 0.9.3 before installing the 18.04 near existing 16.04.
After updating, you can use : myHD switch_ubuntu_env 1804 (or 1604)
if 18.04 (or 16.04) is not installed … the installation start (so be patient)

You can use the pre-load script to download the Ubuntu 18.04 env. before switching or installing … to reduce the elapse time.

ALL previous Application (rebuild for 18.04) are available … kodi18 (/17), PlexMediaPlayer 2.33.0 (new), etc.

All about myHD engine

myHD is an Ubuntu 18.04 (16.04 previous version) in an isolated (namespace) environment BUT able to use Asportal to launch internal (to myHD) applications
ex. Chrome, Kodi18 (17), Plex Media Player, etc. etc.
THE biggest interest is (for application having an Ubuntu repository) NO NEED TO WAIT for a new APKG to get an updated software version. Ex. Chrome or Kodi18 (myHD) are always at the last stable version using Ubuntu apt update … Only applications without repository need to have a new APKG to be updated.

myHD also add new kernel modules to serve some specific usage (ex. squashfs to manage AppImage for ex. ; or wireguard to add simple, light but very performing VPN to NAS … for secure and fast access to remote file)
