The main page is the source for getting to all the info about Drupal like the wiki and modules and what you can do with it. 

I did post that it was in the Debian repositories...I'm currently running Squeeze.  'apt-get install drupal6'

Take a look at Drupal6  www.drupal.org  Its in the debian repositories so installation was easy.  I haven't done much with it yet other then setting up photo galleries, but there's a lot of modules/themes/documentation to suit a lot of needs.

passive, what were the hardware defects Globalscale said to look for?  My plug has been working fine for several months until yesterday and now I am experiencing the same problem, the LEDs are on, but I can't access it all.  Also, how long have you had your plug that Globalscale replaced it?   
4  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / usb hard drive or sata-to-usb dock? on: April 27, 2010, 09:42:31 PM
I am about to buy some storage for my sheevaplug, but need some advice before I spend the money.

I am currently running Debian Squeeze on the plug and have an older 120 gb WD passport and a 1 TB WD MyBook hooked up via a usb hub.  The passport works fine, but the MyBook constantly locks up the system to the point of having to do a hard reboot with the reset switch.
 
I am thinking about getting the Cavalry 2 bay usb dock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822101176 for storage and the ability to add another drive for data backup, but I am worried that the plug will have problems recognizing both drives or have issues like the MyBook.

Ideally, I'd like to have the drives set up in either a RAID mirror config or rsync'ed.  Would I be better with 2 separate portable drives like the passport or would the Cavalry dock work ok?

The drive is a self powered 1TB WD MyBook, and I think the problem may be with the drive and not the plug, as it does the same thing on my x86 Ubuntu system.  I reformatted it NTFS and it seems to work fine with Win 7.

I found an older 120 GB WD Passport usb powered drive lying around and it is working fine with the plug.  Transfer speeds are a little slow, but it is not crashing or locking up like the MyBook.
6  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Install Sheeva-with-Linux kernel on Debian on: March 16, 2010, 04:53:54 PM
I just did this last night using the 2.6.33 kernel, but I did not have to change any boot args through the serial term to make it work.   I ran the README script with --rootkernel and copied the result sheeva-2.6.33-uImage to /dev/mmcblk0p1 and rebooted...and it didn't work.  Then I realized I forgot to name it uImage when I copied it to the boot partition of the SD card.  I popped the card into a reader on my Ubuntu system and copied the new kernel to it as uImage.  The plug then booted no problem from the SD card with the new kernel.

The plug wouldn't boot with the USB drive connected again, so I unplugged it and was able to boot.  I plugged the drive back in and and the system said to run e2fsck on it.  Did that and everything works again, including booting with it attached. 

I can read the files on the drive via samba with no problems.  Writing to the drive, not so good.  Most of the time when I try to transfer a file (approx 1 GB) via samba, the transfer starts but then hangs and the connection times out.  After repeated tries (I haven't kept count), the drive will go read only and I can't boot with it attached.

I'm not using a hub, so its not that.

Does anyone who has a Pogo or Tonido plug have the same problems?  If I understand correctly, they are the same as the Sheeva minus the JTAG module.

I am having the same problem with a 1TB WD drive formatted ext3 with kernel 2.6.30.2 on Debian Squeeze.  Everything works until I start to access the drive through a samba share or the drive sits idle for awhile.  Then I am able to see the drive, but it becomes read only until it finally locks up the system, forcing a reboot by the reset button.  That fixes the problem a few times, but eventually, the drive becomes corrupted and the system will not boot while it is connected.  I unplug the drive and can restart the system with no problem.  I then plug the drive back in and get the following errors:

new high speed USB device using orion-ehci and address 2
usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -110
usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -110
new high speed USB device using orion-ehci and address 3
usb 1-1: device descriptor read/8, error -110.....
hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 1

The drive has worked fine with other Ubuntu and windows systems, but after the above happens, I cannot access the drive with them at all.  The only way I can get any access to the drive is by using a Gparted Live CD to repartition it and then it will work again until I try to use it with the plug.
