2  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / sheevaplug just died on: March 15, 2010, 09:50:24 AM
It had been running fine for a couple of months now, but last friday, it died with both network adapter LEDs lit. I unplugged it and plugged it back in without a network cable attached, both LEDs lit up and stayed lit. I left it unplugged over the weekend and tried plugging it in monday. This time absolutely no lights, not even power/disk activity.

Anyone ever experienced anything like that? This is scary because we have a number of these plugs out in the wild...

any ideas?
3  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / VPN through firewall on: January 22, 2010, 03:02:25 PM
Hey guys,

I've been trying to install a VPN server on a plug for a while now. The trick is to do this without opening any ports. Something like logmein? or maybe a reverse ssh tunnel, where the plug reports back every minute or so and keeps a connection alive. When I want to VPN in, it uses that connection instead.

Any ideas how I can get this done without opening any ports in the router?

Thanks!

I've tried everything I can, just cant get 1.0 to work with my sheevaplugs. I keep getting this error:

$URL: http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/openocd/trunk/src/openocd.c $
2000 kHz

jtag_ntrst_delay: 200

I can use putty and console works.

Any ideas ? The wiki is really poorly documented and isnt much help.
5  General Category / General Discussion / Getting serial window to work on ubuntu on: November 06, 2009, 10:06:13 AM
Hey guys, I've been having this problem when trying to un-brick my bricked sheeva plug. I'm stuck on the first step: cant get the serial window to work under ubuntu.

Heres what im doing:

Connect ubuntu computer to sheeva plug using miniusb
power on sheevaplug
"rmmod ftdi_sio"
"modprobe ftdi_sio vendor=0x9e88 product=0x9e8f"
"dmesg"

And I get:
[  801.293280] USB Serial deregistering driver FTDI USB Serial Device
[  816.911176] USB Serial support registered for FTDI USB Serial Device
[  816.911502] usb 2-2: Ignoring serial port reserved for JTAG

[  816.913432] usbcore: registered new interface driver ftdi_sio
[  816.913441] ftdi_sio: v1.5.0:USB FTDI Serial Converters Driver


Its not detecting anything on ttyUSB1 and putty sees nothing on /dev/ttyUSB

Any suggestions about what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks!

bump, anyone ?
7  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Backing up internal flash memory on: October 23, 2009, 11:53:59 AM
I've installed, upgraded and configured ubuntu according to my liking. I've also installed an apache webserver and other applications. Everything is on the internal flash memory so I dont have to use an sd card. My SheevaPlug is running perfectly.

What I want to do now is to copy over everything in this plug onto a second (and maybe a third) plug. Is it possible to make an image of everything on the sheevaplug and just copy and paste it onto another plug to get a duplicate install ?

Thanks!
