16  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: D2 SD Slot is is sdb or ubb ? and cant get uImage.d2plug_v05 to 'work' on: May 23, 2012, 08:08:16 PM
I think ,the doc mention usb boot is plug a usb flash-disk at usb port not plug-in SD card at on board card reader

I not try this combination before.

Do you want to modify kernel(uImage) or some reason need to put on sd-card

as I know ,you could leave the kernel at eMMC(D2 default kernel place) and rootfs at usb,sd card...

if you could accept kernel , rootfs at different storage

yopu could give a try , just need modify bootargs as below your mootcmdention way to do , the bootcmd realte kernel booting loaction , you could used default D2 bootcmd

Sorry , I can't full undrstand your question

I just to explain what I test

1. I test plug-in 2 size sd card into D2 , one is 8GB another one is 16GB
2. both could be detect , no matter I check it at ubuntu or I check it at console (type mount and dmesg) ,both I could found a storage be mounted , and I used it (like copy file into sdcard) also work
3. I check Disk utitlity , I also found it is same as I plug-in sd card to D2 , but I think it not imapct not impact your used case right?
4. I wounder for Disk utility, it is beacuse there are one card reader at D2 plug cause, I also try it at my desktop , used one card reader + 16GB sd-card ,plug-in my computer, I check Disk utility , it just show up onw card reader , not see any 16GB sd card info , so if you just wonder the Disk-utility behavior , I think D2 was same as Desktop

I download latest rootfs and kernel form download page as I previous said

and it work fine with get pakage with firewall through internet, so I think it enough to confirm IPTABLE is work fine

I has follow the below like to upgrade  kernel and rootfs at my D2plug, I didn't see what you

BTW , as I remember ,has someone also has some issue  like yours , at that time ,the root cause is he untar the rootfs not add "--numeric-owner"

if not add above paramter at untar ,it has chance let some library at rootfs permite is wrong

so could you double confirm your untar rootfs procedure is "sudo tar --numeric-owner -xzf ~/d2plug-rootfs-20110903.tar.gz"

for kernel , you could used document form


page 13,section 4:reflash eMMC ,search about the uImage word , you will know how to do it

another thing , just let you know , as I know you could through wireless ->AP-> internet or ethnet->internet,I don't think different connect to internet has the root cause, but for sync everything , I let you know I  used ethernet to connect to internet,

I have give a try , I not see any problem

I want to let you know , I am used latest kernel and rootfs form


and my procedure is

clik "system->Synaptic " search  firestarter, Mark it and Apply to install it , I didn't see any problem
22  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: D2Plug new kernel available on: March 12, 2012, 11:31:23 PM
this case is need to recompile hdmitx driver for new kernel

you could download lattest kernel from D2plug download page


than need to do some porting

porting hdmi module code at "/driver/video/hdmi/" to new kernel

BTW, latest d2plug kernel code , hdmi is build in module, so if you finish porting, I think you could remove rootfs "/etc/rc.local" about insmod hdmitx.ko
23  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: How to reinstall Ubuntu on D2plug on: February 20, 2012, 07:50:30 PM
you could reference below thread , I have answered it

24  General Category / General Discussion / Re: how to enter ubuntu‘safe mode on D2PLUG on: February 20, 2012, 07:47:57 PM
as I know , uboot could try to add "single" at uboot parmenter, I not give a try , if you wanted you could follow below procedure to do

for example

your u-boot like "bootarg=...root=/dev/sda1 single..." than your rootfs will has administator right

after boot up you could modify your sudor file at /etc folder to add your account and password

finish above procedure , you could back to normal boot-up( mean not used singe parameter at u-boot)

the rootfs "d2plug-rootfs-20110903.tar.gz" at download page is ubuntu rootfs

could download "D2Plug Software User Guide" and "d2plug-rootfs-20110903.tar.gz" from below link


you could reference section 4 or 5 , search keyword "d2plug-rootfs-20110903.tar.gz"

you fail case look different at your previous one

at previous one , error message is mount reconginze smbfs but complain cifs not support , so I want you add cifs support at kernel

at this one , I see you can't recongize the smbfs , I wonder you not install smbfs at D2plug , you could type to type command smbmount to check

BTW , I used command is "apt-get install smbfs" to install smbfs
27  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Windows (R) operating system on a D2Plug? on: February 01, 2012, 07:38:46 PM
let me said more clearily

first ,I think you used origion kernel at D2plug , the cifs feature not enable at default , so you will see some complain about cifs

to resolved this , you need to do is

1.download the kernel source,cross compiler and user guide form below link


2.follow user guide to re-build kernel, BTW  you could see the page 8 at user guide , "make dove_d2plug_defconfig" , after that , you need type make ARCH=arm

menuconfig, than enable cifs feature as I mention at previous thread ,save config , make uImage to buld kernel

3. burn kernel into D2plug follow user guild mention

28  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Windows (R) operating system on a D2Plug? on: February 01, 2012, 12:36:08 AM
the error message "cifs filesystem not supported by the system
meaning , your kernel not support cifs

you could re-build kernel, used menuconfig to let below config be true

I think gstreamer is better

due to at d2plug has hardware accerlate at gst framework, so I think gst is better

but I don't have any experence at your implement function so I just think if you could used gst is beeter ,others I don't have any idea

I have give a try a tmy d2plug package , it work fine

I list my precedure for you ,maybe have some help

1.download tool-chain,kernel ..package form "http://www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/d2plug/index.html"

2.untar toolchain

3.build kernel, into kernel folder , type command  "make ARCH=arm dove_d2plug_defconfig" than "make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=<your intsall toolcahin path>/arm-marvell-linux-gnueabi-vfp/bin/arm-marvell-linux-gnueabi- uImage
