Hey! First at all let me thank you for this guide, it's very useful.
I've followed all steps and I've installed Twonky 8.3 successfully.

What I cannot do is to have the new Twonky working automatically, I have to start it manually.

Could you help me to fix this?

Maybe you will need extra information about my current installation, so just ask me what I can do to provide it. Thanks!!!!

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy
support-files/mysql.server to the right place for your system

To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
/opt/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/opt/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h MyBookWorld password 'new-password'

Alternatively you can run:

which will also give you the option of removing the test
databases and anonymous user created by default. This is
strongly recommended for production servers.

See the manual for more instructions.

You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd /opt ; /opt/bin/mysqld_safe &

You can test the MySQL daemon with
cd mysql-test ; perl

Please report any problems with the /opt/bin/mysqlbug script!

The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at
Starting MySQL…… ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.
postinst script returned status 1
ERROR: mysql5.postinst returned 1

how fix this bug? Thanks

THX, now is OK :) I installed latest version Twonky 8.3 :)

But I have new problem … when I connect to MBWII from browser (IE, Fiefox, Opera, etc) after 3-4 second MB is missing in my LAN. I must restart my router.
When I log on to MBWII from Total Commander (FTP) or Explorer (samba) all is OK. But, when I connect from browser connection is break … :(

To open file for explorer on your computer
to select the folder for contain file the data you want to move.
Now we highlights the data you swant to copy and that's file paste
to next navigate to the drive you want drive paste the data to click on open folder to right side.

I have problem with upgrade to Twonky 8.2.1 in My Book World Edition II. I login to MBWII and paste :

2) Get a script to install Optware : "wget …. mybookworld. wikidot. com/local—files/optware/"
(sorry, I cant paste full link because I am new on this forum)

I have message:

=> ‘’
Resolving… failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.

Please help me …

Sorry for my very late response.

Thanks for your feedback, I enjoy my tutorial still help after 4 years :)

For my point of view for the wake problem, I use cover for movies.

For example I have a movie.mkv and movie.jpg

When connect the first time, NAS is sleeping, but it will wake up when try to display the cover, maybe the 3/4 first file will not display but it will wake up the HDD, this is my way to "resolve" this issue.

Is your system still working? Adding the extras can make your system un-stable due to a few of the extras bugs not fixed.

The developer stopped working on extras a year ago. So if your system is still working and you want more features go to
MBWE Featurepacks
and use the featurepacks.

The extras were a good idea, but not currently developed. Use the featurepacks that are available and check out my updates at source forge
MBWE Scripts

Let me know how it goes.

there are instructions somewhere on this forum how to turn off MioNet.

you should look at this site for remote access.

Ok !

I downloaded the modified firmware and try it on 1 of my MBWE. The update stoped at 29-30% and no "Extra" icon appeared …
I think that the firmware is not good … :(

Any idea ?

I'm a french user not very familiar with english speaking and Linux which have 2 MBWE white light 1To (1 disk) at home.
I have a DLINK DNS320L too, which have a Raid 1 capability.

I just want to create an internet access for file sharing through FTP, but Mionet is not "a cup of tea" for me ! ^^
I visit MBWE-Extras web site ( h t t p s : / / github. com/MBWE-Extras/Downloads/blob/master/, but don't see a package for an FTP server.
I see a No-IP package that seems to interest me …
Is there a package to uninstall the Mionet functionality ?

If I download and install the MBWE-Extras firmware and don't find a way to do what I want, can I go back with the original firmware 01.02.14 ?

P.S. : thanks for this share !

Hi, I need incron, can you help me compiled?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Re: incron package by Artem24Artem24, 25 May 2016 03:46

Hi Teinturman,

I tried your script, which could actually do what I need, however, while it works well when invoked from the shell (/etc/init.d/S15wdc-heat-monitor start), it does not work when left to run after startup. It is almost as if the first time it is run it sets the fan at the correct speed, but after, even if present in the task list when I invoke ps aux, it does not run anymore, because the fan does not change its speed with the drive temperature. I cannot understand why, can you enligthen me?


Hi, I am having the same problem. Did you ever figure that out?

I was trying to achieve this with no luck yet. There is no direct rsync ssh access to ACD and the tools that I could find to run in linux requires either a python version I cannot make to work in WD live duo or a go implementation but compiling it for ppc32 is a pain and still couldn't solve it.

Has anyone managed to do this?

Yes you do want the disk running all the time. It's the stopping and starting of the disk which wears out the disk and makes it fail sooner. The only advantage of the disk sleeping is that it produces less heat - but you can fix that with a 80mm USB powered fan underneath the MBL.
