Ouch.. Epic fail.. I guess just take the thing and install a fan..?
47  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: MediaTomb and Shorewall FTL on: June 23, 2010, 10:10:55 PM
I had to add -i 192.168.1.2  (the local IP) to the string that's used to start mediatomb.. Pretty much confirming my suspicion.. Mediatomb was bonding to the wrong adapter. All better now.
Now if I could just get my USB hard drive to stop locking up every couple hours.

Yeah, I locked it to 49152.. Added 49152 and 1900, both tcp and udp on both to the ACCEPT list.. And for the life of me, I can't get the stupid thing to show up since installing Shorewall. I've opened up the local network wide open, Mediatomb just won't show up. I don't understand it.

Yeah, onto my SheevaPlug.. Just did an "aptitude install shorewall", configured it and off it went. Using a usb-ethernet adapter for the internet side.. Smiley

Crap.. Seems to have completely eliminated my ability to use the MediaTomb server that's running on my plug.

Looks like it's a whole distro. Do they have an ARM branch that'll work on the plug? I use "Shorewall" which was simply a Debian package I was able to install on my existing Debian install.  It works great, pretty easy to use.
52  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: [resolved] Tomato/DD-WRT type package for Debian? on: June 19, 2010, 11:58:59 PM
I installed "Shorewall", and udhcpd. Couple hours of very carefully reading and re-reading the man pages and it worked as soon as I switched everything over. Next step will be to get the "webmin" working on it so I have the web "gui" interface that I've grown found of on my routers. Smiley
53  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Turning my Sheevaplug into a firewall/router/server on: June 19, 2010, 02:57:57 PM
I have a tired and dieing old Linksys router that runs Tomato currently. I'd like to replace it with my SheevaPlug. I picked up a USB-ethernet adapter to add to my Sheeva. Currently I have a webserver, a uPnP Media Server, and Samba running my my Sheeva. I'd like to keep that all installed and working. My Sheeva has Debian Lenny installed on it. Is there a simple package I can install that'll add router/firewall type functionality with a friendly web interface to my Sheeva?
Thanks for any tips/suggestions you can give me. Smiley

Either way, this is standard procedure with GlobalScale. If you calm down and wait, you'll eventually get what you ordered.
55  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Why use Sheeva? Looking for developers and entrepreneurs opinions…. on: May 26, 2010, 08:44:31 PM
We are looking for your perspective on why you choose the Sheeva plug as your platform. Your opinion on what is good and bad about it. Both from a business and technological standpoint!
-   What do you really like?
-   What is a pain point? What are you complaints?
-   What do you think Marvell is doing and can do to enhance the ecosystem that is building around plug computing?
-   Any ideas and concerns you would like to highlight to the big guys.
-   What are the other alternatives you had in this market – if any!

I really like the low power consumption, and the low price. I really like that it runs Linux. I like the Gigabit ethernet connection, it shares files very fast.
Pain point, my USB connected 1TB external drive crashes every couple days, forcing me to shutdown the server processes that are using it, unmount the drive, power cycle the drive, fsck the drive (takes several hours), mount it and restart all those processes.
The biggest problem I see for the plug computer is GlobalScale.. They over promise and under deliver. They don't answer emails, and when the original promised ship date slips, they don't say a word. NewIT on the other hand is GREAT, best asset the plug computer has, is them.
I'm glad the GuruPlug has ESATA, I might move to that to get around my USB crashing problem, assuming they fix the major design flaw it has with gigabit ethernet.
Alternatives.. FitPC.. But the price on that thing doesn't hold a candle to this..

Android is Linux. The Sheevaplug ships with Linux pre-installed.
57  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Marvell makes a $100 tablet computer on: March 21, 2010, 08:43:00 PM
Ouch.. That's harsh for a company that has no previous record of such things, in fact the very opposite, given what this forum is here to support (the plug computer).. I think the price is overly optimistic, but I don't think it's vaporware by any measure.
58  General Category / General Discussion / Marvell makes a $100 tablet computer on: March 21, 2010, 02:15:21 PM
Check this article out over a Wired.com, Marvell has a new Tablet computer prototype.. Man that would sure compliment my plug computer nicely. $100, that'll blow the doors off Apple, with or without an App store! Smiley I figured it was related, so thought I'd alert everyone to the article.. Wink

Ahh wow, learn something new every day. Thanks, that did the trick. Smiley

I don't have a hub, it is connected directly.. I was hoping it might be the other way around.. Error goes away if I get a hub.. heh.. ESATA FTW..
