1  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Wireless on D2Plug on: October 13, 2011, 12:31:22 AM
I have just received the new D2 plug and I am not able to turn on the wireless.
Has anyone been able to turn on the 87W8888 module?

This has absolutely nothing to do with your problem, but I am interested in the D2 plug and I was wondering if you would be so kind as to post the output from dmesg to the forum (either here or in a new topic.

Many thanks!

The site says...

Starting from kernel ver. 2.6.25 most of Linux distributions include the Sierra Linux drivers and are equipped with the Network Manager application.

So, one of the dreamplug kernels from http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/ should work.  Don't forget to read the instructions carefully.

I would highly recommend you do NOT run transmission as root.

You can work out the uid and gid by running "id transmission", and making a note of the uid and gid numberic values.  I don't have transmission but here is an example using the postfix user.

Code:
kettle /home/leigh $ id postfix
uid=51(postfix) gid=51(postfix) groups=51(postfix)

In which case, it may be that the transmission user does not have permissions to write to the filesystem (vfat has no inherent protection so by default it only allows writing by the root user).

You could try using the uid=n and gid=n options to specify the uid and gid of the transmission user, when mounting.

e.g.
Code:
mount -t vfat -o uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sda1 /mnt/USBstick

(assuming the tranmission uid and gid was 1000)

Is transmission running as root?

Assuming your Dreamplug is working, have you tried

echo something >/dev/console

Also, have you tried powering on the dreamplug while picocom is running?

Stupid question time - you do have UART cable connected from the JTAG to the Dreamplug, and it is pushed in all the way?  You don't actually need to connect the JTAG cable for the console to work.  Finally, is the slider on the front of the JTAG unit set to UART (left)?

Ok, So I have my DP

and I am going to upgrade my debian. I have tried
windows - putty
linux 10.04 - gtkterm, putty, minicom, cu
linux 10.10 - still nothing

I have watched a video on it for windows and am certain I have followed the instructions correctly

My jtag lights flash but there hasn't been a single bit of output in any terminal program..

I need help

here is dmesg | grep tty
[ 9461.748846] usb 3-1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB1

I really want to upgrade and specifically bought the jtag for this and other tinkering purposes

plz help Huh Huh

For PuTTY on Linux your settings need to be as follows :-

Connection type: serial
Serial line: /dev/ttyUSB1
Speed: 115200

That should do the trick.  I actually use picocom as its very small and easy to use.  Install it on Linux then run it like this :-

picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB1

Hope this helps.
