1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: How to unbrick from deleted symlink on: November 08, 2015, 06:24:01 AM
My solution was to download all kirkwood stuff (e.g. from the ALARM home page) and extract it to an usb stick formatted with etx2. Before booting the boot parameters need some adjustment

Code:
setenv bootargs_root ubi.mtd=1 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10

which makes the Sheeva boot from the usb stick. And after "mount /dev/ubi0.. /mnt" the world keeps revolving.

I bricked my SheevaPlug by deleting the wrong file, i.e. /lib/ld-linux.3.so instead of /lib/ld-linux.2.so which I created before. The boot process hangs now, and I have no access to the file system. What can I do to fix this problem?

I'm running Arch Linux.

Thanks a lot, folks. I resurrected my Sheeva with an external SATA power supply (12V at yellow, 5V at red), some luster terminals, and tape. Doesn't look professional but works well.  Grin

Your's has the exact same symtoms that mine had when my power supply failed.
Ok, I'm convinced. Can I use any power supply? Which voltage is needed and how should I connect the 2 red and 2 black leads?

could be a damaged PSU, try another one
Wouldn't the LEDs be off in case of a broken PSU?

I'm running a Sheevaplug for about 2 years. This morning no ping was possible even after repowering. Yellow and green LEDs are on but don't flash so I assume there is no activity. When I try to connect the plug via serial console to my desktop PC (mini usb to usb) it doesn't find any new device (lsusb). What can I do to either resurrect it or at least to have access to my data?

The difference between static vs. dynamic is known. Of couse, I tried to run the program first. Cannot execute or illegal instruction, something like that.

I want to use the Sheevaplug for an own-written game server. To compile the code I downloaded the ARM specific compiler of fpc (http://www.freepascal.org/down/arm/linux-ftp.freepascal.org.var). But fpc reports not to be a dynamic executable. Are there different ARM architectures, and how do I solve this issue?

not a dynamic executable
