1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: GuruPlug Server Plus Heat Problems on: May 29, 2010, 08:02:34 AM
Globalscale says they have done a design revision on the GuruPlug and the next shipment in the 2nd week of June includes these modifications. RMA's for everyone.
Where did they say that?

Gigabit-problems here also. As soon as I connect it to gigabit it reboots after a couple of seconds, setting the switch port to 100 megabit makes the guruplug stable again.

I haven't tried anything fancy with the onboard serial stuff besides using it what it's meant for (received my sheevaplug just yesterday).
I have a http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5859 (4$ usb-rs232 convertor, although mine is green  Smiley )
I plugged it into the not-mini-usb port after I read this, and it worked like a charm.

I connected the serial end of it to my garmin GPS unit, and gpsbabel was able to make sense of it, so it doesn't just show up in dmesg, it also seems to be functional.

I run a freshly installed debian squeeze from http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/index.html .
