1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / squeezeslave cant find dreamplug output device on: April 25, 2011, 01:28:43 AM
Is there something special that has to be configured with the DreamPlug in order to use in under applications like squeezeslave?

x@ubuntu:~$ sudo ./squeezeslave-1.0-216-alsa --debug all   
proto_thread: state=1
proto_thread: PROTO_CLOSED cond_wait
PortAudio error7: No output devices found.
2  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / aplay outputs 'Invalid value for card' on: April 25, 2011, 01:08:03 AM
I'm running into some basic problems with my new DreamPlug. It can't seem to play a wave file under aplay.

aplay -vv Roland-GR-1-Pick-Bass-2-C4.wav
ALSA lib pcm_direct.c:1494:(_snd_pcm_direct_get_slave_ipc_offset) Invalid value for card
aplay: main:590: audio open error: No such file or directory

This is on a stock dream plug with the following modules loaded

x@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep snd
snd_usb_audio          60996  0
snd_pcm                62956  1 snd_usb_audio
snd_page_alloc          4799  1 snd_pcm
snd_hwdep               4933  1 snd_usb_audio
snd_usb_lib            16271  1 snd_usb_audio
snd_seq_midi            4066  0
snd_rawmidi            16417  2 snd_usb_lib,snd_seq_midi
snd_seq_midi_event      5022  1 snd_seq_midi
snd_seq                48913  2 snd_seq_midi,snd_seq_midi_event
snd_timer              17410  2 snd_pcm,snd_seq
snd_seq_device          5011  3 snd_seq_midi,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq
snd                    35725  8 snd_usb_audio,snd_pcm,snd_hwdep,snd_usb_lib,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device
soundcore                678  1 snd

I've seen some posting related to a similar issue the recommend going down the OSS route but I'd love to fix this rather then going with a whole new sound subsystem.

Thanks  cbxbiker61,

As soon as I get my questions about changing the uBoot env vars .. I'll give this a go.

Looks like (http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=5799.0) is out which might fix this. Sadly the upgrade requires a change to the uBoot env. Does anyone know if there is a way to do that if you don't have a JTAG ?
5  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new kernel available on: April 25, 2011, 12:48:59 AM
For those of us that don't have a JTAG to change the uboot env .. is there anyway to upgrade to these newer kernels?
6  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: sheeva.with-linux Dreamplug kernel? on: April 20, 2011, 08:09:38 PM
Can any other DreamPlug users confirm a newer kernel that works?
7  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: iwconfig kernel oops on: April 20, 2011, 08:08:24 PM
I've mailed GlobalScale about this so we'll see what they say. I'd happily try a newer kernel out but without a jtag box i'm not willing to risk bricking it.

9  Linux Stuff / Kernel / iwconfig kernel oops on: April 09, 2011, 02:03:14 AM
Brand new DreamPlug freezes after switching into wlan client mode per http://tinyurl.com/4yonjo3. If you try to run iwconfig, ifconfig, etc .. they all hang. dmesg shows a the kernel being unhappy

Steps to reproduce

1) /sbin/wlan.sh
2) iwconfig (with any valid option)
... iwconfig segfauls ...

Any ideas or newer kernel images that fix this?

10  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: PL2303 Serial->USB Driver support under stock Sheeva Plug on: December 17, 2009, 02:42:15 AM
I opted to upgrade my sheeva plug through the installer to 1.0 . Everything works perfectly now.
11  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / PL2303 Serial->USB Driver support under stock Sheeva Plug on: December 09, 2009, 03:31:52 AM
Does the unmodified release of the Sheeva Plug (Ubuntu 9.04) support PL2303 devices for serial to usb conversion for the type A USB port? The shipped kernel certainly has support for it in its src but from what i've seen the functionality doesn't seem to be there. My devices show up in lsusb but never do there proper mapping of usb->tty.

This is what should be happening ..

usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usbserial: USB Serial support registered for pl2303
pl2303 1-1:1.0: pl2303 converter detected
usb 1-1: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usbcore: registered new interface driver pl2303
pl2303: Prolific PL2303 USB to serial adaptor driver

But instead it never gets past.

usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using ehci_marvell and address 3
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

Is my best option to try and compile the module directly on the Sheeva Plug or should I just push toward alpha6 or 1.0 and hope that my problem is solved?

And in general can the type A connector be used for serial->usb conversion or is that something reserved for the mini usb port?

12  General Category / General Discussion / Unable to make JTAG connection on OSX through Ubuntu VMWARE Image on: December 09, 2009, 03:18:12 AM
Does anyone know why VMWARE Fusion (2.0.6) on OS X (10.6.2) only surfaces the FT2232D B USB connector and not the A connector? I'd like to use an Ubuntu image to flash a new version of the base install but can't seem to figure out how to surface the A jtag connector. Running lsusb confirms that only B is loaded and the installer blows up on connecting. I've already tried restarting is several times and this doesn't look like a transient issue.

Any help is appreciated.
