    errno=28 When Installing Plugins

    I have a VU-SOLO2 box recently upgrade to Openvix 6.4.0.11 with 1GB HDD.

    When I try to install most plugins I get an error like "/usr/lib/enigma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/..." "Write to restore size failed (errno=28)"

    I ran "e2fsck -p -c -f /dev/sda1" to check my HDD and it gave me an error
    Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sda1

    Is this disk error causing the plugin errorno=28 and how can I resolve it.

    Are the plugins installed on the HDD or is flash and how would I know.

    Error 28 is "No space left on device".

    Is you flash filesystem full?

    The e2fsck error message indicates that that filesystem is unusable. Did you unmount it before trying to fix it?

    Yep I ran the following.
    init 4
    umount /dev/sda1
    e2fsck -p -c -f /dev/sda1

    I have a second box and this command works fine.
    How can I check my flash filesystem ?
    Do I need to do a factory reset on my Solo2 or is there a tool to fix the flash memory ?

    I ran the command "df -Th" which shows the amount of free space that is left on a file system


    Filesystem Type Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
    ubi0:rootfs ubifs 194.8M 194.5M 240.0K 100% /
    devtmpfs devtmpfs 279.4M 8.0K 279.4M 0% /dev
    tmpfs tmpfs 64.0K 0 64.0K 0% /media
    tmpfs tmpfs 279.5M 1020.0K 278.5M 0% /var/volatile
    /dev/sda1 vfat 931.3G 187.8G 743.5G 20% /media/hdd

    Top one is 100% full. Only 48% full on my other Solo2 box.

    That's why you can't install anything else.
    You need to free space there.

    But the df output shows this to be a vfat file-system (why?).
    So the command to check an extn file-system isn't going to like what it sees.

    I have 2 problems. One is the hard disk error which is fine as I can sort that.

    The second is the flashmemory which is 100% full as below and that is stopping me installing new plugins.

    How do I remove or clean the flash memory ?

    You do not have a hard-disk error.
    Or rather, nothing you have reported here indicates a hard-disk error.

    The second is the flashmemory which is 100% full as below and that is stopping me installing new plugins.

    That is your main problem.

    The issue is whether you can move/delete things from here to /media/hdd.

    So:
    • where do you keep logs (if you have debug logs)? (Should be /media/hdd/logs).
    • where do you store epg.dat? (Should be under /media/hdd).
    • where do you store picons? This should also be as /media/hdd/picons, except that you have that formatted as vfat, and I think that you can only put picons on a file-system that allows hard or symbolic links, which vfat does not.
