16  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Making Backup of the Flash on: April 19, 2009, 02:45:03 AM

again: I am a newbie. I would like to make a backup of what is in my plug before I start changing things (to a USB drive for example).
Iwould like to try that out first: making a backup and restoring the backup.

I suspect it will need more then just doing cp.

Kind regards,

This Deluge sounds like what I want to have. I am impressed by their website + the fact that the project still is very alive.

As I said, I am a newbie: so tell me about this apt-get. Which packages do I need, how does it work (or were can I find newbbie info on it), does it depend on which version I am running on my plug (standard, debian, ubuntu, gentoo,...).
Who is providing these packages ? How do I know which packages are available.
I would have expected having to compile these specific kind of things myself.

Kind regards,

I would like to start trying some things on the Plug. I would like to start setting up a bittorrent application.
1) Anyone could give me an easy one I could install.
2) I suspect I will have to recompile it. I have to confess I dont have a Linux PC, can I compile using the SheevaPlug ?

I am a newby, if somebody could point me to the right documentation. I will look it through.

from the "SheevaPlug Development Kit - Reference Design-Rev1.0.pdf" from Marvell I copied this:
The SheevaPlug Development Kit package is shipped with the following components:
One SheevaPlug including the SheevaPlug board and Debug adapter
USB Cable
Ethernet Cable
CD containing software and documentation
North American Power Cord (7A/125V)
The power cord can be used instead of the A/C plug on the SheevaPlug.

You can apparently remove the A/C plug and plug in a Power Cord which is hopefully a standard one (cfr one for a standard VCR). Looking at Figure 1.2 in the same Spec I am rather hopeful you will be able to use a standard power cord. I am having the same problem (I dont live in US).
