1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Broken gcc on: June 08, 2009, 10:37:29 AM
Could it be an out-of-memory issue?
It is very unlikely but I will check. "hd"-space is definitly enough (nothing is over 30% usage).

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.]
The values of variables in make.conf are in my first post and for me it seems ok. Actually I did not change anything in my make.conf.

Maybe I can recreate the files from the stage3 but I do not know all files I would need.

It does not change anything. I still get:
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
3  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Broken gcc on: June 07, 2009, 10:06:47 AM
I've got a big problem with my gcc. I do not realy know what I did but it does not work anymore at all.
I've installed gentoo on the plug and until last week everything worked fine. Suddenly configure breaks with the message that gcc is not able to create executeables. gcc is in the path and starting it without anything tells me, that there are no input files which is of course correct.
emerge --info tells me:

I am not able to reemerge gcc because I do not have a compiler   Undecided
Can anyone tell me what to do?

Yes, I built everything in.
5  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: SD card support on: May 21, 2009, 10:44:42 AM
Here you will find some usefull patches, especially for the -101 error:
Unfortunately it is for 2.6.30-rc3. For newer kernels you might do some hand work but its not that hard.
6  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / SDIO broken on: May 21, 2009, 10:39:51 AM
Since working with the plug the SDIO seems not to work. I tried 3 different sd cards from 3 different manufaturers all with the same result. The kernel module for mmc is loaded but it does not detect a card. Pushing in the card while running causes the plug to restart. If the card stays in the slot while booting the blue led does not come up.
Anything else I can try or is the SDIO realy broken from hardware?
7  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Hardware watchdog? on: May 21, 2009, 10:33:47 AM
As far as I know you should have something like /dev/watchdog if you have a hardware watchdog. The plug seems not to have one but maybe someone knows how to enable one if present.
8  General Category / Success stories / eGroupWare running on: May 21, 2009, 10:31:20 AM
I've installed eGroupWare for gentoo and it is running. SyncML seems to work too but currently my mobile does not sync with something like "invalid answer from server" and groupDAV also has some problems but I am working on it.
Synchronising with Thunderbird works well but due to the not working groupDAV synchronising of the address book currently does nothing.
I will write again if I've fixed all issues.

9  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: plug stopped booting - Bad Magic Number on: May 18, 2009, 01:30:57 AM
I had a similar problem. This comes from the bad blocks on your nand but it seems that you are knowing this.
I fixed the issue by changing the boot args to
nand read.jffs2...
This should take the bad blocks into account while reading. What you cannot avoid is that blocks become bad during normal operation so you realy lose information in your nand and than nothing else will help than reflashing your uboot/kernel.

10  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Reflashing a bricked U-Boot on: May 09, 2009, 08:31:33 AM
I had also to flash a new U-Boot because unfortunately I wrote onto mtd0 instead of 2  Wink
It did not work for the first time although without writing errors or something. I let the plug over night and decided to try the red button but the next day it suddenly worked again.
A bit strange but the outside placed reset button should do its work.
11  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Write error cat uImage > /dev/mtdblock1 on: May 09, 2009, 08:27:48 AM
Thank you. This worked but I needed the -p for nandwrite but the rest is the same for the uImage.
12  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Write error cat uImage > /dev/mtdblock1 on: May 06, 2009, 03:10:33 PM
I tried a cross compiled 2.6.30-rc4 and a "natively" compiled kernel on the plug but I am not able to write it onto the flash like http://dev.gentoo.org/~armin76/arm/sheevaplug/install.xml says. My dmesg output is full of

Do I have to do anything else than

13  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: SD card support on: May 06, 2009, 01:14:08 PM
As I wrote:
[..] Transcend SDHC Card 16GB [..]
And it is a Class 6 card.
Currently it also crashes the complete system (reboot) when I put it into the slot. I do not think it is a matter of the filesystem because it does not work wide before any filesystem would be read.

In this case in my mind the card has some problems because even with the reader stick my host system has problems to read the informations to create the proper dev entry.

Any 16GB cards working by now?
14  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: SD card support on: May 04, 2009, 03:08:42 AM
I use the 2.6.30-rc4
I tried now two different SD-cards from different manufacturers and both are not working. Not even an error message.
