Er,  I think you two are talking about two different things. fail2ban is meant mainly for stopping SSH bruteforce attacks. But I think kb100 wants to use the plug as a router & NAT device for his/her other computing devices.  At least, that's what I read from "use as a firewall" and "log all URLs".

So I'm new to hard hacking, but I want to actually use my GuruPlug Plus for the purpose it was intended (home router).  Where should I go for heatsinks? What qualities should I look for? Would you recommend any models in particular?
3  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Enabling relatime on ubifs rootfs at boot? on: September 23, 2010, 04:18:53 PM
The output of "mount" for the root file system is usually what you have in your /etc/fstab. It does not always reflect the actual mount options used. You should do "cat /proc/mounts" to see the real mount options.
/ isn't in my fstab. What should my fstab line look like?  I found this post but trying "mount -o bind ubi0:rootfs  /mnt" says "special device ubi0:rootfs does not exist", so what special do I need to use?  I don't understand how / gets mounted on boot without an fstab line, anyway.

/proc/mounts does have relatime there after a boot.  Why would /sbin/mount and /proc/mounts differ? I thought the former just read the latter..

Another thing. "rw" is a special kernel boot parameter that is understood by the kernel as a mount option for the root file system. You can't just attach arbitrary mount options to it and expect it to work.
Thanks. I thought it was worth a shot, and it does seem to have worked.  Should I be passing 'ro' or 'rw'?  And back to my original question, what's the proper way to mount with relatime at boot - an fstab entry?
4  General Category / General Discussion / Enabling relatime on ubifs rootfs at boot? on: September 22, 2010, 07:02:44 PM

How do I boot with / mounted relatime, when / is on ubi0?  I have a guruplug plus and am booting with:
bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200 ubi.mtd=2 root=ubi0:rootfs rw,relatime rootfstype=ubifs
but when it boots, relatime is missing:
# mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)

I solved this by removing the "usbmount" package.

Have you run 'dpkg --configure -a' Huh
7  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Upgraded U-Boot, now I can't boot anything on: July 07, 2010, 03:18:23 PM
Thanks, you're right; factory uboot lets Linux boot again.

Time to play some more.  I'm glad I can go back to factory defaults relatively easily.
8  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Upgraded U-Boot, now I can't boot anything on: June 26, 2010, 07:43:58 PM

I've been trying to compile my own kernel so I can enable CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_MATCH_PHYSDEV for a Shorewall bridge. I only successfully got as far as loading the latest U-Boot from http://plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=select&id=15.  It works fine (U-Boot 2010.03-01161-gd91b0a9 (Apr 22 2010 - 03:24:41)) but now nothing boots.  I have been trying custom kernels following the wiki, but with no luck, and I give up for now.

So, problem #1 is just booting the factory image again.  It's still on flash, though I have an SD card plugged in.

And it just sits there.  As you can see, arcNumber and mainlineLinux are not set.

How do I boot now?  Also, where can I get the factory U-Boot image?

I ordered mine 7 April, and e-mailed Globalscale yesterday.  Just received a reply: Mine won't ship til the beginning of June "due to the popularity of this product."

So.. any US retailers shipping the GuruPlug Plus immediately? Smiley

Anyway, I've found a plug that has two gigabit ethernet ports at: 

I too am interested in a dual-ethernet plug computer.  But your link goes to the one-interface SheevaPlug, or am I missing something?
