I’ve been running 123solar on my Pogoplug for almost a year now, and started to get concerned about loosing the historical data. So I started to look around at options for an automated backup.

I simply followed the instructions here


After doing so, I had some java issues, with following error:

dl failure on line 696Error: failed /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/arm/server/libjvm.so, because libffi.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


when you use a non-reparenting window manager



Optional dependencies for openjdk6

    icedtea-web: web browser plugin + Java Web Start

    alsa-lib: for sound

    giflib: for gif format support

Fix was this command:

ln -s /usr/lib/libffi.so.6.0.0 /usr/lib/libffi.so.5
