    They had a hacking once before and it took a couple of weeks to get back online. I think it's only one guy (Andrew). And it's not a super active forum. I'm sure it will be back.

    Yeah when Ron was involved he was phenomenally knowledgeable, I'd never have stuck at it without him & a few other Linux geeks. My Linux skills are basically cut & paste, directory editing & changing the odd line in a text file.

    same for me. I read that Ron had been ill. He is the key contributor to the vortexbox forum. I hope he gets well (for his own sake of course but also for the sake of vortexbox users )

    Me three....I've lost count how many times Ron has helped me, hope he gets well. I upgraded to 2.4 a few weeks ago and have been having a bunch of trouble. With the forums not having much activity before the crash and my Linux skills being very basic, I'm thinking it might be time to move onto another solution...just not sure what that would be just yet.

    I haven't had too many problems with VB2.3 after a clean install (I think VB2.4 was released to support compatibilty with newer hardware which wasn't applicable) & any I did have were fixable from searching the forum - it's my library.

    While we wait for the VB forums to come back, would anyone here know what service might be disabled in my Vortexbox 2.4 that is preventing LMS and Subsonic from running?
    Whatever it is, it's preventing me from accessing the appliance via pUTTY too. All other services are working such as the Home screen, Bliss, CD ripping, Mp3 mirroring, cover art creation, network access to music files, etc. I've attached a monitor and keyboard and all looks kosher.

    I'm at a loss.

    That is the "Community" version which IIRC is no longer being actively developed / supported. Do not use.
    There is (was) a very similar post that told you how to upgrade 2.3 or 2.4 to use the 7.9 Nightly tree - I can't find it now - but once you had done this you can keep upgrading.
    I will post back if I can find it.

    EDIT
    2.3 upgrade to 7.9 tree - http://wiki.vortexbox.org/how_to_ins...repo_on_vb_2.3
    The 2.4 is similar but different
