1  General Category / General Discussion / Re: New QT based installer: Enhanced Sheevaplug Installer Application (ESIA) on: May 23, 2010, 03:54:06 AM
Just a warning for those trying this on Win7 - like DrJam (kam?) mentioned on the first page, on installing this it will disable all usb hardware and plugs you have on your system. For me this included the wifi, and sound on the netbook. I had to uninstall the libusb before i could do anything at all.

As a recommendation for above, you need to add ice support into apache2, and then

This is a basic guide:

Once you have the ability to talk to your server via the web, you can install a web interface, like this one:

As a side, are you installing plain murmur?

There is a project called uMurmur, which is here:

Seems arm based, and minimalistic requirements. No database, just set and go essentially

Can I clarify on making a usb drive boot using the 1.0 installer?

I have a working openplug now, and don't want to accidently nuke it Smiley

What would be the instructions to make a flash boot? I am guessing on having a usb drive with the installer/* contents in it. Then running ./runme.php mmc     . That will then give me a bootable usb drive I can put into the sheeva?
4  General Category / General Discussion / My talk on the Openplug at Barcamp melbourne on: September 18, 2009, 04:24:53 AM
Hello all,

I was recently at Barcamp melbourne, which was an excellent "unconference", where we all decided what talks to do on the spot, and ran it like such - it is a fantastic way to meet some very talented programmers and people.

The night before I was going to it, the 1.0 release came out - and I was excited! unfortunately I bricked it and lost the neat stuff I was going to show, but still got it working by the second day thanks to some help.

I decided to do a short talk introducing the open plug, and thought I would put the link on here.
http://blip.tv/file/2602072   - This is a video of the talk itself. Many other great ones are up there as well, at :

With thanks to Barcamp melbourne for putting the videos up so quickly as well!

Wow, was about to take my sheeva to a conferernce, and found this bombshell Smiley

On first impressions, I've installed win32 CDM drivers for usb serial support, and plugged the sheeva in.
However running the runme.exe on it just exits out straight away.
6  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / New user attempting to access uboot via serial on: June 09, 2009, 08:10:11 AM
I have been trying to connect to the sheeva to access uboot. Using windows (xp), I plug the usb into the pc, mini usb to plug. I open putty in serial mode (after installing the usb to serial drivers) and leave it there, reboot plug. I never see any console input. What am I missing?

I am trying to follow through this excellent guide:

I have downloaded his Debian image, and am trying to boot that usb flash plugged in to it.

Could anyone help point me in the right direction?
I resolved above by making sure I was using the right com port :/
I have updated the uBoot version, appear to have borked the stock install - I do not get past "booting" after uncompressing on the nand.

I am trying  to set up the usb boot using the settings on the page above, and this section is what I have got to:

Marvell>> setenv bootargs_root 'root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10'
Marvell>> setenv bootcmd_usb 'usb start; ext2load usb 0:1 0x0800000 /boot/uInitrd; ext2load usb 0:1 0x400000 /boot/uImage'
Marvell>> setenv bootcmd 'setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_root); run bootcmd_usb; bootm 0x400000 0x0800000'
Marvell>> saveenv
Saving Environment to NAND...
Erasing Nand...Writing to Nand... done
Marvell>> run bootcmd
(Re)start USB...
USB:   scanning bus for devices... 2 USB Device(s) found
       scanning bus for storage devices... T

It halts at this point.

The usb stick is plugged in, so im not sure how i can investigate it more?

A newbie here - The part I am stuck is essentially the information leading up to this. Is there an image we can use to format our memory card for use? Windows/Linux pointers to  get that done?

Got mine on friday! Smiley

Smaller than I thought too, and so well put together. I'm struggling a fair bit due to my basic skills for linux, although picking it up quickly. Already got apache and php5 on there, good enough to start putting some files on there (once I figure out the best way between rsync and ftp for it!)

As an aside, I bought a sandisk ultra II ... they were on sale, so got it for $15aud . It folds in half to be a usb port. Trying to use it now to install the distro on.

My sheeva came in on friday! Smiley yay aussies.
12  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Plug computer to support non US powerpoints? on: March 25, 2009, 07:40:36 AM
Seeing as the plugcomputer itself is so tiny, I'd love to get one for being a low maintenance, basic webserver.

Since I'm in australia though, Will it be available with an australian plug, or the plugs be changeable in general?

Our standard connections are three prong/ 10A/240V  , as seen on wiki:

It is the AS 3112 type.

More info on here:

Some images appear to show the prong itself as being detachable from the actual board itself. If this is true, are the prongs changable, and if so with off the shelf parts, or proprietary stuff?
