1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Sheevaplug installer v1.0 could not find serial interface of plug on: March 07, 2010, 08:43:41 PM
it worked, sheevaplug_installer could not detect the plug over serial on Windows, I got it working perfectly on Linux though..

2  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Sheevaplug installer v1.0 could not find serial interface of plug on: March 06, 2010, 07:08:58 PM
Hi,

I was able to install install both the FTJAG and USB-serial drivers, and putty in to the plug at 115200bps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, with no XON/XOFF. Windows Device Manager also was able to discover USB Serial Converter A & B. I checked "Load VCP" on B as how this tutorial (http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash#Burn_a_New_Kernel) told me to. It's a great tutorial that doesn't beat around the bush.

I need to flash a new working kernel  (sheeva-with-linux's 2.6.32.2) that is able to mount NTFS. Based on the tutorial I need to upgrade u-boot to version 3.4.19. I choose the TFTP method. After I typed in these commands under u-boot CLI environment the whole thing just went dead. 

   setenv ipaddr 169.254.1.1
   setenv serverip 169.254.78.185
   tftpboot 0x0800000 uboot.bin
   nand erase 0x0 0xa0000
   nand write 0x0800000 0x0 0xa0000
   reset

I then went on to try using sheevaplug installer v1.0, but runme.exe just would not discover the linux plug via serial, the error messages are:

Error: unable to open ftdi device: device not found
Runtime error, file "command.c", line 469:
     ****       openocd FAILED
 ****   Is the mini USB cable connected?
 ****   Try powering down, then replugging the Sheevaplug

Anyone please shed some light.

Hi all,

I am a newB, any good instructions on how to flash a new kernel?

Is this a good instruction:
http://www.computingplugs.com/index.php/Building_a_custom_kernel

do you need to install the latest of U-boot?  Is it a Das U-boot? do I follow the instructions from this link below:
http://www.linuxfordevices.com/c/a/Linux-For-Devices-Articles/Introduction-to-Das-UBoot-the-universal-open-source-bootloader/

I need a new kernel becase mine won't write on a NTFS based USB harddisk, it keeps giving me this error message:
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.22.18/modules.dep: No such file or directory

other users also had similar problem and it was resolved by flashing a new kernal on the plug.

Would appreciate anyone could lend a hand.
