16  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Java on Gentoo? on: May 30, 2009, 01:37:11 PM
Any success with this?
I would like to know if there is a way to get java 1.6 running in gentoo.

Thanks.

Yes, it solves the -110 errors while using them, however I am not sure if its ready for use as rootfs, I made a couple of tests, read and write speeds were OK, however once I started putting a bit of a load on it (downloading a torrent file) every program that used the SD started to slow down.

There shouldn't be any problem, I see you have another thread with pretty much the same problem (actually this one seems to be part of it).
Please tell us which kernel are you using and if you have the module installed.
Try to manually loading the module using modprobe before plugging in.
Finally please use lsusb and see if it is detected as it should be.

Hope this helps a little.

I just tested it with the card that was giving me trouble (Kingston SDHC 4 gig) and it worked just fine!
COpied around 200 mb of data (quite a good speed) and then played some mp3 of it.

Thanks a lot for sharing

Just added a page about setting up AFP in the sheeva, you can see it here:

Sure, I'll post it on the wiki as soon as I get home.

Mine were solved by using a powered hub. Since my specific problem were resets when power problems.

Unless what you are looking for is integer processing, then the sheevaplug is not a good solution. SInce its ARM based it lacks a real floating point processor, so anything dealing with FP will be inaccurate and slow in the sheeva.

What kind of services do you want to use on several sheevaplugs?
I have a friend who also has one and we could give it a try.

As a bit of an update, I replaced the hub (an unpowered perfect choice brand) for the one that was bundled with rockband for xbox 360 (4 ports, self powered) and so far everything has been working ok, the current uptime is 1 day 3 hours.
I suspect the problem is that the sheeva barely has enough power to drive the USB hub, and when a brownout happens the devices restart.

Sounds promising, but I can't find the attachment.

How about something like this:

<http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=762>

About $25 US, a PIC controller, 16 GPIO lines, and a USB interface.


You can build your own at the link I posted a couple of post above, and you can get the chips for 7 usd at microchip.com (used to be free, but they started charging for samples), the rest, well, you can salvage an old USB drive or card reader.

I only have 1 sheevaplug, but I have connected to my home network. It works perfectly with other devices (laptops, desktops, routers, etc)

One of the best "tests" I've made to the plug is stream mp3 to my laptop using a VPN connected from my office (the plug is at home), it worked perfectly.

Hi, thanks for the answer. As of my voltage its supposed to be 120, however I am not sure what the exact measure is, I am going to try measuring it later. I don;t know what a variac is, sorry :S

As of the USP, I was planning on getting one of these: http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=BE350G
Its not expensive, and I think APC is a good brand.

Anyway, I am not really sure were the problem lies, it simply happens out of a sudden, but I've found that the pattern is related to those events I described earlier. Maybe the problem is like you say, that I am working on the lower end of the limit, because when I turn on the microwave or the lamps, all the lights at my house kind of lose intensity.
