2  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Sheevaplug broken? on: December 27, 2011, 05:32:07 AM
I'm running a Sheevaplug for about 2 years. This morning no ping was possible even after repowering. Yellow and green LEDs are on but don't flash so I assume there is no activity. When I try to connect the plug via serial console to my desktop PC (mini usb to usb) it doesn't find any new device (lsusb). What can I do to either resurrect it or at least to have access to my data?

could be a damaged PSU, try another one
3  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Guru Plug WEP security on: September 12, 2011, 03:09:56 AM
I'm looking at this problem too, all I find is WPA info... nothing about WEP. I'll keep you posted if I find anything.

/usr/bin/uaputl  sys_cfg_wep_key --help

/usr/bin/uaputl sys_cfg_protocol --help

Usage : sys_cfg_protocol [PROTOCOL]

Options: PROTOCOL:              1 - No RSN
                                2 - WEP Static
                                8 - WPA
                                32 - WPA2
                                40 - WPA2 Mixed
                                empty - Get current protocol

It's not too hard to bridge 2 eth adapters and pass dhcp through to another box..........

As i'm someone who is not great with Linux currently, any pointers?

just a little help; on your plug, in terminal session:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bridge-utils

man brctl

sudo brctl
sudo brctl show
sudo brctl showbr

sudo brctl addbr ..
sudo brctl addif ..  (uap0 eth0 eth1 ..)

i'm using a SAMSUNG HD204UI 2tb sata disk in a cheap "Diginote storage enclosure (3,5", usb2.0 and sata)", which is connected to the gp+'s sata interface, that's silent enough for me.

I'm done with this thing. Got it 4 months after I ordered it then spent a week trying to get transmission-daemon to run without a kernel panic.  Got frustrated and threw it in a drawer for a few months.
forget transmission, try rTorrent (and wTorrent)
9  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Is this a Sympton of a dying SD-Card? on: April 05, 2011, 06:17:33 AM
Might this behavior be caused by the SD card dying. How can I check its health?
this is a known issue:

12  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new kernel available on: February 18, 2011, 09:59:20 AM
Ok I found out it's because I use the cypress usb to ata chip in my harddisk enclosure. Would be great if it would be supported in later kernel builds as a module. (it's under usb storage). Can someone with a sata enclouse try to get it into sleep? Thnx
i can my sata disk gonne sleep:
hdparm -S 180 /dev/sdd  works eventough it's a sata-disk

sdparm --long /dev/sdd
    /dev/sdd: SAMSUNG   HD103UJ
    Direct access device specific parameters: WP=0  DPOFUA=0

and i can force 't to sleep:
a) sdparm --command=sync  /dev/sdd
b) sdparm --command=stop  /dev/sdd
and to awake:
c) sdparm --command=start /dev/sdd

How 'bout enabling support for CONFIG_DVB_USB and associated USB Tuners ?

# CONFIG_DVB_USB is not set
14  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new kernel available on: February 13, 2011, 10:54:42 AM
How do I install this new image?
I have the latest uboot and can run debian 2.6.32-5 but any other version I try either fails to boot or no Wifi.

flash this uboot  before kernel-upgrade  ( http://plugapps.com/os/guruplug/guruplug-u-boot.bin )

wifi is working correctly with this kernel-version
15  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: new uboot version 3.4.25 on: February 11, 2011, 11:52:43 AM

Will this version of uboot work correctly with the Guruserver Plus? Iḿ working with a pretty ancient version here so an update would be great ;-)

i'm using this one, works great for me:
