Thanks for that.

Will try to get something like that build.

Cheers,

no, because if it is in /etc/fstab it will ask for the root password for maintenance or press CTRL+D to continue which requires console input Sad

Thanks for that.

So just the UART socket would then serve the serial console? Or would I have to connect to the JTAG socket? There are 4 pin's on the JTAG socket and 8 on the UART.

So far I was unable to find a cable/adapter that hooks into any of those ports. Could you point me to the right product there?

Thanks,
Marcus

Hi there,

not sure if that is the right area in the forum, but I think I have lost access to my guruplug plus. I have attached an external harddisk, put an xfs filesystem onto it and put it into /etc/fstab. It seems that since I have done that the plug is not accessible anymore (after reboot). I don't have a JTAG UART cable for the device nor the JTAG board that could be ordered at globalscale.

What would the right approach be to solve my problem?

I guess it gets stuck with the fs mount before it actually starts the network services Sad With a terminal connection one could skip the mount or something, but I guess that is not possible at the moment as I do not have a serial terminal right? What would I have to organize to get this, or is there another way to get access to the guruplug?

Thanks in advance,
Marcus

That is how my guruplug plus looks like.

Will open it when the warranty is over.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I am sure about the guruplug plus: http://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/t-guruplugdetails.aspx#extern that shows the mini-USB port which does not really look like one Wink So I guess their picture is wrong there.

Will see if I can find more info about the UART - RS232/USB converter.

Thanks,
Marcus

It came with a fan and seems to be stable (although when I switched the default Debian installation to init 3 it died after a few minutes after every power reset).

Could you please take one or more pictures?
Thanks :-)

I don't think that it looks any different to the previous one and I do not want to open it yet, as I still have some warranty left and just en-quired about the noise that little thing is making...

Cheers,
Marcus

Hi all,

Mid of April I bought a guruplug plus which finally got delivered a couple of days ago. And although very very noisy (due to the "micro fan") it is a neat little computer.

Now to my question (which might or might not be a bit silly).

On the right hand side, I have got a mini USB-port and a JTAG port, which are the serial console of the device right?
What kind of cable would I need to connect to it? I would like a USB cable with whatever fits on the guruplug side Wink

Thanks in advance guys,
Marcus

I received my guruplug plus 2 days ago (have ordered it mid April...)

It came with a fan and seems to be stable (although when I switched the default Debian installation to init 3 it died after a few minutes after every power reset).

The problem that I found is that the fan extremely noisy. Our house is about 15m long and if the device sits on my desk (one end at the house) I am able to hear it at the other end. It also vibrates if it is put onto the ground or plugged into the wall. Seems to me like a quick and dirty solution...

Cheers,
Marcus
