It seems to hang off nautilus, so without a full graphical Ubuntu 9.10 install, it's no dice.

I've been wanting to run something like Ubuntu One or Dropbox on the sheevaplug for a while, but they all either use Nautilus/gnome, or are x86 binaries. I guess I'll have to make do with FUSE/sshfs on all of my machines.

I think the mods do, but I doubt that the SMF developers do.
Apparently there's a Bookmarks plugin for SMF that can be added to the server.

no, but that's what Delicious or Pinboard can do.

Of course, it is impossible to tell from the pics, since one side of the unit is never shown.  Since the board itself is flipped, I suspect the JTAG daughterboard is flipped also, and this would mean the SDcard slot is on the side of the unit that is never shown.
Isn't that the SDIO slot in the front (well, okay, top) on the Developer Kit daughterboard?

A battery-backed RTC isn't good enough for general data logging. Install openntpd - it will keep your clock on time, every time.

Check your make.conf; bet you've got a screwy (or duplicate) CFLAGS entry.

[About four years ago I was an insufferable Gentoo booster, spending days recompiling everything so I could save 1ms in a loop somewhere. I got over it.]

comprec - mentioned here: http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=235.0 - is an integer MP3 encoder that runs better than real time on the sheevaplug. The sound quality is pretty poor, though.

Flac should be doable in real time, since some fairly low-wnd players can do it using Rockbox.

nice, but I've found SMB to be absolutely solid on Macs. netatalk's really old, and is much harder to set up.

Personally, I now do everything through sshfs and Macfusion.

If you check "Stay logged in", you'll never see the low contrast colour scheme again.

I ordered mine on May 14, ... I am gonna wait for 5 business days if I don't hear back I will call the credit card company and will cancel the transaction. Really frustrated here.
Patience, patience ... mine took more than six weeks. I wouldn't cancel in anything under 28 days.

I don't think it would be as much as $500 - the single 15W Eliminator panel you can get in many hardware stores is $100 or less. It includes a reverse-current protection diode.

I used to install a lot of small solar for powering remote wind monitoring equipment. A number of the manufacturers have (or used to have) really good application guides for sizing panels against load, with maps of solar radiation.

This is fairly awesome that we can run a Linux box from a small sized panel. The weather stations I used to install ran single-digit megahertz 8-bit microcontrollers, and used the same size of panel.

I'm perfectly happy with flite, from the Festival team, though as I said, my needs are very limited. It runs great on the plug, and it will attempt to say anything you throw at it. Sure, it makes a mess of a few things, but it's designed for small systems.
13  General Category / Success stories / Re: integer/fixed point mp3 encoder on: May 04, 2009, 06:55:46 PM
great! That's perfect, and it's about 20x realtime on my sheevaplug. All I'm doing is encoding speech output from flite, so the lack of sound quality isn't a huge issue.
14  General Category / Success stories / integer/fixed point mp3 encoder on: May 03, 2009, 05:21:04 AM
I'm setting up my sheevaplug to be the server for the automatic podcast. This requires quite a bit of mp3 encoding. Without an FPU, the plug's processor is really dire at this - about 40% realtime.

Has anyone got a faster, preferably fixed point, encoder working? I see there's a port to ARM of the Shine encoder here, but it seems to use a lot of old Acorn RiscOS assumptions.

ah, got it working. Rebuilt from the latest stable source, ad installed using checkinstall
