16  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: eth0 Debian SheevaPlug on: February 08, 2010, 12:28:52 AM
Thank you very much for your advice.
the situation is getting even more weird!
None of the three MAC addresses match what's on the back of the plug: 00:50:43:01:6C:09
The currently working interface: eth2, reports its hdwr addr as being 00:50:43:ca:37:24
Which fits the output of  /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules although it's  a complete mystery where these numbers came from .
Marvell>> printenv ethaddr                                                     
ethaddr=00:50:43:ca:37:24
There seems to be an incorrect mac addr printed on the back?

I've been trying to install postfix onto my SheevaPlug but getting the following error consistently in spite of anything  and everything I've found by googling the problem:
plug:~# apt-get install postfix

I declined.

after the following commands: (suggested at http://changelog.complete.org/archives/496-how-to-solve-the-following-packages-cannot-be-authenticated)
apt-get install debian-archive-keyring
apt-get update
I got the following error:

tion-en_US.lzma  Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.egr.msu.edu'                 
                                                                               
W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used

Can someone suggest what needs to be done?
thanks in advance

I forgot to mention: no, I did not install on one and move to another SheevaPlug; so far I have only one of these little guys.

You might consider posting a link to your guide. I was unable to find it without contacting you off line. It's a shame that it isn't easily found by checking this thread (or am I missing something that is staring me in the face?)

Here's what the file you mention has to say  (although it certainly is 'Greek to me'):

# This file was automatically generated by the /lib/udev/write_net_rules
# program, run by the persistent-net-generator.rules rules file.
#
# You can modify it, as long as you keep each rule on a single
# line, and change only the value of the NAME= key.

# Unknown net device (/devices/platform/mv643xx_eth_port.0/net/eth0) (mv643xx_et
h_port)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:50:43:82:32:1
c", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

# Unknown net device (/devices/platform/mv643xx_eth_port.0/net/eth0) (mv643xx_et
h_port)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:50:43:26:20:1
9", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth1"

# Unknown net device (/devices/platform/mv643xx_eth_port.0/net/eth0) (mv643xx_et
h_port)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:50:43:ca:37:2
4", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth2"

Does this give you any clues?
As always, thanks,
alex

I have the information that you requested: it can be found at http://kleico.net:5180/Pages/sheevaplug.txt
I put it there rather than inline here because there are so many lines.
In the process I discovered that (for reasons I'd like to know) eth0 was reassigned to eth2.
Once I realize that, fixing the problem was easy.
The question now changes to why is eth0 reassigned and can that be avoided?

Again, thank you very much for helping.
cheers,
alex
22  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / eth0 Debian SheevaPlug on: February 05, 2010, 07:22:49 PM
I've successfully installed Debian on the SheevaPlug, and although the installer got what it needed via the internet, my current system doesn't recognize eth0. Is there a fix known, please.
cheers,
alex
