1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: 3TB Disk Woes on: April 16, 2013, 11:31:26 AM
Madmike, I don't know how useful this may be, but not too long ago I was reading, somewhere that there is still a limit on disk size on some computers and software.  Do you think that could be a problem?  I run Debian Linux on my home machine and also on my Dreamplug, and somewhere I ran into a discussion that the OS was about at it's limit for disk size and it was fixed on some...  Unfortunately I don't really remember where or when I read this and what it applied to as I only have one 1 TB disk around here.  It wasn't too long ago.

Just a thought that you might look and see if that size of disk is really supported or not, may be a quick diagnosis.  Again, I don't know how useful this may be but I would check if you haven't already.

2  General Category / General Discussion / Marvell Monitor commands, anyone know them? on: February 23, 2013, 03:06:46 PM

Hello. I have a Global Scale DremPlug and need to dig into in a little further.  However, I cannot find any documentation on the Monitor ROM commands that run when you are at the lowest level using the device.  The prompt is "Marvell>" and has a help, but it's pretty limited.  It doesn't answer many questions, like parameter list, etc.

I would love to have a listing of the details of these commands.  I have written Global Scale Technologies, who sell this device as a development platform, but to no avail.  I have asked for a schematic, information about identifying different variations of the device and also for these commands.  They are, well not very attentive to their customers questions.  Seems like a schematic would be a normal item to ship with the device, along with more information about the monitor ROM running within. Their site is "www.globalscaletechnologies.com", if I haven't misspelled anything.

Anyone who knows where or has access to this information, I would like to share!

I have, just today, sent a request to Marvell, who make the 88F6281 processor integrated system in the device.  Since they apparently wrote it, maybe they have some insight as to the commands.

Thanks

Only word I've heard is that the ext3 takes a toll on SD chips and that the best way if for an ext2 partition.  Does this jive with what you have found?

4  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Schematic for DreamPlug on: February 05, 2013, 10:51:58 AM
Hello, Does anyone have a schematic for the Dream Plug?  I have one and was wondering about the ability to get a roadmap of the hardware as it makes software so much simpler.

Do they consider the Dream Plug and Guru Plug the same animals?

Thanks

Jack
