1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Can't su to root on: May 08, 2009, 02:06:56 AM
So direct appeals to su still result in authentication failure for some reason.  I'm extremely interested in the reason why.  I'll post here if I ever figure it out.  However, in terms of having root privileges via ssh or serial terminal, this is a big win.
You don't have some CR/LF conversion problem by any chance?

Have you changed the root password?

Any ide why I might be getting:
Can't load plugin YouTubeStore (No module named gdata.youtube.service), maybe missing dependencies... (coherence/base.py:169)

The Marvell official Linux kernel (LSP) supports OCF for offloading tasks to the security engine.


Withregards numbers, I don't know if it is 300Mbps or other.

Using the cryptotest from ocf I get:

# time ./cryptotest -a aes256 100000 4096
  21.285 sec,  200000 aes256 crypts,    4096 bytes, 38486888 byte/sec,   293.6 Mb/sec

real   0m21.291s
user   0m0.070s
sys   0m6.750s

Nearly 300Mb/sec using only 30% Cpu time.


I'll try to get a patched OpenSSL so I can do some sw/hw comparisons.

I just ordered the openrd from globalscale. I can't wait, low power and cool.

Personaly I like the looks of this product: http://globalscaletechnologies.com/p-5-product-5-with-variants.aspx

Looks like ext3 would have to be built in to the kernel for it to mount as ext3. I'm guessing that modules aren't processed yet at that point -- makes sense, 'cause how can a module be loaded before the filesystem on which it's located is mounted?
To use a root  filesystem type that's not build into the kernel you can use a initramfs/initrd.  Probably not much point on something like the plug though.

The device mapper is for multiple-disk setups such as raid (which isn't too important on a sheeva).  I may build it in just to get rid of that warning (I hadn't noticed it on the earlier rc's).
Uh, the first application I'm using my plug for is NAS - and of course I'm using raid, I like my data.

I see some references on the web to "300Mbps" hardware crypo acceleration on the plug.

Is this true?  Is it accessible?  Documented?

Would it be possible to use this to speed up dm-crypt?  ssh?  openssl?

One tantalising hint from the boot messages is:

dm_crypt using the OCF package
