1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 3.0.3 new kernel available on: August 31, 2011, 03:44:58 AM
3.0.3 is now available.  Also added are LTS versions and

I'm guessing there must have been some sort of issue with 3.0.2, since it was only out for a day or so before they released 3.0.3.

For everything besides Dreamplugs:
sudo ./README-PLUG-UPDATE.sh 3.0.3 --nandkernel (installs 3.0.3 to nand)

For Dreamplugs:
sudo ./README-DREAM-UPDATE.sh 3.0.3 (installs 3.0.3 to disk)

Kernel and modules are available from the following locations:

The mirror may not always be current.


Features systemd, e-sata, dmcrypt, IPV6, CIFS, NFS4, EXT3, EXT4, JFS, XFS, FUSE(for ntfs-3g), UBIFS, usb-serial, uvcvideo, iptables, appletalk, bluetooth, v4l and ppp.

Hi, maybe you can add support for controlling 3 leds??

 Yes, one of my ipcams it's a Maygion Ip603, the another a FoscamFI8904w, both working at 320x240, doubling the resolution loads a lot the cpu and the quality of the image is not twice better.
I made some tests working at 640x480, but sometimes I got the well known ZM error "cannot shmget memory", so I decided to leave them at 320x240.

 Do you have it working?. How many cams?.

I have http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.29919  (I could read some of your posts in zoneminder forums Grin)

but couldn't make it work on sheevaplug in 640x480 (only 320x240). I tried 1 month ago and now I'm waiting for vivotek to check resolution.

 Does anyone tried to upload files from a guruplug/sheevaplug to a dropbox account?. Is it possible?. I would like to use this nice application to store the events that my surveillance system is recording.

 Thanks in advance,


you can use http://jaka.kubje.org/projects/dropbox-uploader/ or http://wiki.dropbox.com/DropboxAddons/PythonDropboxUploader

Hi tocayo,

Did you try maygion ip cams??  I can make them work with latest firmware, but not able to get mora than low resolution...

5  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new kernel available on: October 24, 2010, 01:52:45 AM
Yes I used the installation of Martins site. And used for installation those instructions


don't have to change the acrnumber or something. Then use the other instructions.

in the debian installer

Create one boot partition of about 150MB ext2 for /boot (ext3, sda1) . than then the root / (sda2) and a swap

The instalation fails almost at the end, skip this and go to the next step of the installation.

If you have installed everything, mount the /boot and put the kernel you found here and put it in there.

Then tell u-boot to load it, while mentioned above.

Good luck

Ok, thanks... at this stage I have the following problems:

1.- I decided (yes, stupid decision) to replace original u-boot with latest one provided by martin (3.4.27 patched). After this, egiga port is unable to work anymore (even with original uboot could get ip for tftp taks when booting).
2.- If I prepare a USB stick, as you detailed earlier in this post, the system loads uImage and initrd... but then is unable to load the kernel. This is completely annoying for me, because I think the USB stick should boot the kernel perfectly... but no way.

So, with non-origianl u-boot, no ehternet and non-booteable USB....  I'm completeley stuck ;(

any idea how to revert to origina u-boot???

6  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new kernel available on: October 23, 2010, 07:00:54 AM
Here the u-boot stuff when for usb devices, where sda2 is root, when done reboot and you see if it works

issues that I hope to find, are the network,  to get it also on 100mb, and the led control. So if any ideas...

setenv bootargs_console 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda2 rootdelay=10'
setenv bootcmd_usb 'usb start; ext2load usb 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage'
setenv bootcmd 'setenv bootargs $(bootargs_console); run bootcmd_usb;
bootm 0x00800000'

regards Richard

Hi Richard,

thanks for your info... but how did you do to install squeeze in your usb stick?? did you follow Martin Michlmayr post (http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/openrd/install.html) Huh  Did you change default u-boot??? 

Please, can you detail a bit your procedure???

Hi Michael,

ok, I will try to play with my iconnect... and let's see what can we do... Wink
8  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new kernel available on: October 19, 2010, 02:47:36 PM
will later on put it on the wiki,

but I used this site


For installing it only works with 1GB port on your switch/hub.

I replaced the internal wifi that is not supported by kernel drivers (ralink rt3090) with an atheros mini pci half size 9280)

regards Richard

Hi Richard,

can you post some details about loading u-boot and rootfs on your iconnect. I have one, but there is no much information out there apart from doip...


9  General Category / General Discussion / support for Iomega Iconnect and dockstar on: October 16, 2010, 09:57:08 AM

is there any plan to support Iconnect, dockstar and so on???  Dockstar seems to be well supported in http://jeff.doozan.com/debian but Iconnect lacks of any kind of support (only http://doip.org/iconnect).

Will installer support them??

10  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / USB audio on NAND flash on: July 11, 2010, 01:33:22 AM

after reading several posts (also the wiki) about using USB audio devices on sheeva, there is no way to get it working on NAND flash instead of USB or SD rootfs.

My system is debian with kernel provided by installer (ubuntu also seems to fail). Other recent kernels also present the same behavior.

alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-oss alsa-compat
(and all dependencies needed by those packages as explained everywhere). No /dev/dsp is created nor snd_pcm_oss module. Modprobe that module gives "no such file or directory" error. The question is that the same procedure is ok in a SD or USB rootfs, but in NAND always fails. No /dev/mixerXXX is created too.

Alsamixer also fails, because of the above mentioned problems.

The sound card is recognized.
reports "Tenx manufacturer USB audio".
aplay -l
  works and show the card information. All seems to be ok but oss components and /dev/dsp  related....

any experience with that??

Hi cbxbiker61,

how to build


for this kernel???


even better... can you describe your compilation scenario???  codesourcery??

13  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: custom Linux kernel and problems with arm-linux-gnueabi-objdump on: April 03, 2010, 01:43:44 AM

BUT, the sheevaplug knows how to use uImage end uInitrd, so, you will need to create one manually (I didn't found hos to do this using make-kpkg).

do you flash uInitrd also???  I have the one I got with sheeva-installer, but I didn't flash anymore when re-flashing new kernels... is it mandatory??

14  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: custom Linux kernel and problems with arm-linux-gnueabi-objdump on: April 03, 2010, 01:11:28 AM
ok, I will give a try.... thanks Wink

Anyway, now I'm able to compile my uImage following some wiki entries like http://computingplugs.com/index.php/Building_a_custom_kernel, but my main need is not to compile new uImages (I think I can do at this moment), but to get the same headers package as you can find in repositories, for example:

* linux-headers-
* linux-headers-
* linux-kbuild-

When compiling manually, or even downloading form sheeva.with-linux.com, you get headers with a different structure of directories (there is no scripts directory, nor .config nor Kbuild, for example), and because of that I cannot compile my custom module.

Without repository haders, my compilation of custom modules allways fail. Using repository headers, I can compile... so the question is:

how can I generate the above 3 mentioned deb packages for my custom kernel??

15  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: custom Linux kernel and problems with arm-linux-gnueabi-objdump on: April 01, 2010, 02:23:31 PM
I have finally found how to cross-compile my own kernel from kernel.org on my desktop PC(i386)

I have done it with 2.6.32 kernel, and I placed it on the MMC card. I have created my own uImage and uInitrd
Now I have 3 .deb packages and 2 files :
- linux-image-2.6.32-zerros-1.0-arm.deb
- linux-headers-2.6.32-zerros-1.0-arm.deb
- linux-source-2.6.32-zerros-1.0-arm.deb
- uImage
- uInitrd

Wink How could I put a Resolve flag on the topic ?


Hi zerros,

can you detail your procedure to get deb packages, plase??

I'm stuck crosscompiling my own uImage and headers...
