I'm now using the power supply of a fonera fon2.0g, which marked as 5v 2a...

so far so good... with only sd card inserted... no more usb for me before I find a suitable 5v 3a power switch.
2  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Password Help on: March 15, 2010, 04:53:18 AM
Silly question, but here goes...

I got my SheevaPlug awhile ago, but have to fit it's configuration in between everything else.  Somehow during the initial configuration, I messed up the original fs that was on the plug (I was getting bad CRC errors in U-boot).  I followed the instructions from http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Recovering_from_bad_kernel_flash and used kernal 2.6.30.5 from sheeva.with-linux.com.  Once I modified the boot args, I am able to get to a debian login prompt.  However, I have tried root/nosoup4u and several other passwords with no success.

What is the password or do I need to put on another kernel?

Thanks!

I got the same problem 3 days ago...

add init=/bin/bash in the boot args line just after the root path claim...

you will boot with a bash and passwd root, reboot, you are done Wink

I never thought it would be dead so soon.

I only left it running a torrent machine with a 16G pen drive attached for... like 3 weeks non-stop... maybe the overheat is the real killer...

So here is another one... Embarrassed

My plug was down last December, I have a little bit of time today to open it up, only to find that I'm another victim of this low-quality power supply...
