  1. Replied to your post there. In short, glibc is probably the culprit. Boxcar 0.3.0 gets this wrong I think. It has the version hard coded (2.11.1), and may be incorrect for the system you're installing on. Boxcar at this point is out of date with boiler and trolley and desperately needs an update. YMMV.
  2. Your error is with ld-2.11.1.so. ld.so is part of the C library, which is typically glibc. glibc is one of the few packages that you must use from your slackware version. You WILL get segfaults if you have version mismatches.
  3. Lowercase "y". Anything else will fail. See code: https://github.com/nicinabox/boxcar/blob/gh-pages/install#L37
  4. Totally understandable. Releasing free software takes a ton of time and effort (and I'm sure you're short on both of those fronts). Are you planning on licensing these mockups or code so others can make derivatives?
  5. Sorry, no. The web has progressed a lot in 15 years. Tables are for tabular data. It isn't a semantic layout element. The spec clearly defines this. It has nothing to do with performance, load, or concurrency.
  6. Actually that information is a combination of the disk model identifier and serial number as obtained by SMART. It does make some sense! Though you are right when saying it isn't immediately obvious in what it means... (makes me wonder if I should change that too) Some of the unMenu screens display model and serial separately. When it comes time to actually pull a drive the serial is the most important. In fact all my drives have the serial on a manufacturer's sticker on the end where it is easily visible without removing any drive from the drive cage in the case. Kode, this is important. Design Model/Serial for real use cases That's the information provided by disks.ini, how does it look in boxcar? I would need some way to reliably store the information because I don't want to be doing smart lookups everytime you look at the page, could I not just explode by "_" and use [0] for model and end() for serial? Boxcar gets it direct from SMART: https://github.com/nicinabox/boxcar/blob/master/lib/boxcar/api/smart.rb#L16. You could memoize and store it in memory to prevent subsequent SMART lookups. SMART can be slow on some disks, so you'll want to use async when possible. Splitting on the underscore may or may not be reliable. Seems like it would work from this sample, but who knows in reality. There are some sample files in the repo I use for testing. You are, of course, welcome to them.

  8. +1 Also this disk information: "ST3000DM001-1CH166_W1F28XEV" is rather useless. It's impossible to look at and make sense of. You can get better, more useful data from SMART. (Boxcar shows the Model and Serial Number separately, check that out)
  9. Looks better than I thought. I'm not convinced on the red/green to represent the drive type though. It looks more like the state and something is wrong on red. Another thing you might consider: the skeumorphic drive icons are really gaudy and unnecessary. I think you could use that space better.
  10. FWIW I really don't give a damn about brand awareness. I'd be using this to manage my stack of drives, not to be inundated with more corporate branding. I'd much prefer sticking to just the vendor name. No logo.
  11. Are you sure transcoding is your bottleneck?
  12. I don't believe it is. H5BP, but not Bootstrap. Custom columns? I don't recognize it.
  13. You should also strongly consider making this responsive. Many people use mobile devices to access it away from their computer. According to the survey, it's one of the the things that people almost universally do or want to do.

    Writing plugins

    +1 and more guides coming (mostly already written and prepped for next release). Kode is also working on a GUI that integrates addons directly for a 1-click install
