16  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc uImage and kmods ipkg feed on: May 04, 2009, 07:42:59 AM
Reverting mvsdio.patch to the old one in rc4 optware build #3.

I guess I did not give it enough test, when mounting it's giving me
Code:
mmc0: unhandled error status 0x4000
mmcblk0: error -42 sending read/write command, response 0x900, card status 0xd00
end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 8192
Buffer I/O error on device mmcblk0p1, logical block 0
lost page write due to I/O error on mmcblk0p1

[Update] rc4 build #3 is in the feed.

Thanks for rabeeh's suggestion, 2.6.30-rc4 kernel ipk's have been updated to build #2.

The changes are:
1. enabled initrd
2. replaced SD patch with a new one from marvell git
3. added two patches related to power management from marvell git

Why the need adding /opt/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf ?
You haven't installed any optware ipkg, even with optware ipkg, you don't need to do this.
21  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: [Cross-] compiling applications for SheevaPlug on: April 20, 2009, 08:18:33 PM
You can use distcc. Another approach is scratchbox.

Or use one of the cross compilation framework. I'm bias'ed towards optware, basically

Code:
$ cd $HOME         (you can use whatever directory you want, of course)
$ svn co http://svn.nslu2-linux.org/svnroot/optware/trunk optware
$ cd $HOME/optware
$ make cs08q1armel-target
$ cd cs08q1armel
$ make directories ipkg-utils
$ make toolchain
$ make hello-dirclean hello-check
See http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/AddAPackageToOptware for detail.

Just get a nslu2 (or any small device with USB), plug console -> slug USB, dtach/screen picocom/minicom.
23  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: New U-boot features on: April 20, 2009, 11:42:29 AM
Thanks Rabeeh, these are great improvement. Some comments and questions:

1. File system on USB drive that contains uImage.recovery and initrd.recovery, fat, ext2, or either one works?
2. Can this "wait and check" be suppressed with some u-boot environment?
3. Versioning of u-boot?
24  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: SD card support on: April 19, 2009, 10:15:06 AM
The mainline kernel is not as up to date as the marvell one in terms of sd card. In #openplug irc, rabeeh gave an experimental patch. I tested and it seems to work. No more "error -110".
The patched kernel will be in optware repo soon as 2.6.30-rc2 build 3.
25  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc2 uImage and kmods ipkg feed on: April 19, 2009, 10:10:25 AM
Have you flashed the uImage into mtd1? If not, you're still using the old kernel, which requires setting mainlineLinux to no to boot.
26  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc2 uImage and kmods ipkg feed on: April 19, 2009, 07:36:56 AM
I already had the system booting from the Ubuntu distro from nand, and attempted to reflash the uImage by setting up the optware feed, and ipkg installing the kernel.

However, when I did this, the kernel-image_2.6.30-rc2-1_arm.ipk no longer existed, but was replaced with the newer kernel-image_2.6.30-rc2-2_arm.ipk


I'm guessing that this was the cause for the problem that developed:

After rebooting, and setting the two new parameters in uboot, my device no longer boots.
I get:
Quote
Starting kernel ...
Uncompressing Linux ................................................................
.............................................................................. done, boot
ing the kernel.

At this point, the device freezes and give no more output to the serial terminal.



Any suggestion?
Did you saveenv in u-boot? Interrupt the boot and see if these two env variables are set correctly.

See http://openplug.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=92.0 for one way of getting kernel modules.

People have been using asterisk even on nslu2 (266MHz 32MB RAM), there's a nslu2-asterisk yahoo group. The lack of FPU will prevent some modules but for the main feature it should be fine.
One way of installing asterisk on sheevaplug is from optware/cs08q1armel ipkg repository, see http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/HomePage for ipkg setup instruction.

An 8 GB Kingston class 6 card does not work.
