16  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Do you still need to install the SheevaPlug Installer if you just bought a Plug? on: January 01, 2010, 07:37:03 AM
You will be able to use it from the moment you plug it in. You may want to use the installer to make sure you have the latest kernel and u-boot but thats a choice you will have to make based around what your plans for the plug is.

You are correct about your asumptions. I did skip most of the boot process output.

I did do a ver and the version is the patched one you supplyed.

I can attempt a double the mmcint. If you want to supply a uboot i will try when I get home from work tomorrow (doing a crap shift that ends at 2:30) I will give it a go. Thanks for the help

Hi,

Have you tried my latest patch .27 uboot? I fixed a bug when the partition is really big and its file system format is EXT2 uboot will have problem reading it.

Is there a bin file flying around pingtoo?
23  General Category / General Discussion / What do you think? [Question] on: December 30, 2009, 08:50:55 AM
I am now on my third unit and seems this one may be faulty as well. I am finding when the unit it powered off from the mains then powered up again the MMC/SD card is not picked up. I have to connect then use the boot command at the marvel prompt to get things moving. I am also seeing the unit freeze after it has been running for a while.

Since thisi s now my third faulty unit the supply is now saying that its my fault (or thats how it seems) and have given me two choices.

1. to keep the unit and work through the problem.

2. accept a refund as they are unwilling to supply me with another new unit.

What do people think I should do I like this unit alot when it works but have a strong feeling that this unit has a flaky MMC/SD card reader and this is why the unit is acting like it is.

Any advice would be great as I do not want to end up with a unit that is faulty hardware wise and i will not be able to fix.

Hi,

Is the root file system running off nand/SD/USB ? Because if its running of either SD or USB there is not need to reflash. You could use a linux distro (Live cd or usb if you run windows as your native OS) to mount the SD/USB then make changes to /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow to blank out the password.

As for loading a clean image on to the device that can be done with the installer that came on the cd.

[Edit]

Just to check it was the u-boot and not the rootfs and kernal I downgraded the uboot to a older version (3.4.19) and everything works fine.

[/Edit]
Not sure if this is to do with the new uboot or not but thought I would just let you know.

There is a new uboot on the scene so I am going to give that a try with the installer and see if anything changes.
27  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: [Help] More U-boot sdhc problems. on: December 23, 2009, 08:49:01 AM
This may not be of any use to you but in a attempt to see how long it is till the unit hangs after running I have set a form of logging to make note every hour the unit runs. A quick while loop:-

root@ubuntu:~# while true
> do
> date >> /root/tmp.log
> sleep 1h
> done

Still do not understand why the unit seems to be hit and miss with the sd card when the unit before this one ran fine and had no problems. I want to aviod the nand and wearing it out.
28  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: [Help] More U-boot sdhc problems. on: December 23, 2009, 08:25:17 AM
No the unit was on over night running some download jobs when I woke up I found the unit had hung, still was on the network could still be pinged and nmap scan showed my service ports open but could not ssh in.
29  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: [Help] More U-boot sdhc problems. on: December 23, 2009, 07:01:12 AM
Tryed both sugestions and found i still had the same problems. Really thought ccp had it this time till I woke to a yet again hung unit. These are sad times.
30  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: [Help] More U-boot sdhc problems. on: December 22, 2009, 09:41:20 AM
I suspect have the same problem on an occasional basis:  The Plug sometimes won't boot after the power has been removed and when I attach to the console to investigate, I'm left at a prompt asking me to provide the root password for maintenance, but with no history.  Unfortunately, if I reboot it again, it then comes up uneventfully.  I've heard rumors that invoking "mmcinit" twice in the boot_cmd sequence will correct this.  Could you try this and let us know if it works?

Do you want me to try this with bootcmd or real_bootcmd ?

p.s. Thanks also for the help.
