Sad Sad  Angry Angry

I noticed all the sheeva is flaky. uBoot too. At this point, if i had to spend more money, i'll buy another (different) board.

Is there a warranty?

As far as I know, the Sheevaplug has only a 30-day warranty.

I have removed the internal power supply from mine and replaced it with an external 5V 3A power supply. These are available on ebay for around $6 US.

I had to solder the jack for the power supply plug to the power supply wires on the motherboard. No problem, and the Sheevaplug works great now. It runs Subsonic 24/7, no problem.

ok, thank you. I'll try it

Hi. I've a sheeva, it worked fine for a year but now it doen't work. It is linked with ethernet cable to a router, but the led of the eth-port of the router is off, like there isn't a cable connected (but the led on the eth on sheeva is on).
I tried to connect to sheeva by jtag, but it doesn't work. In linux there isn't /dev/ttyUSB#  and dmesg give me no information about any usb device.
On sheeva, there is only one led up.

Now i can't access to sheeva in any way. Have you any idea?

in my sheeva, wait4usbdisk doesn't work. but i have already the script in /etc/init.d ... and i mount devices manually after the boot.
But now... i'm installing vsftpd, and debian give me this warning:

Code:

this all sort of stopped working for me recently.

I ended going back to:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          wait4usbdisks
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Should-Start:
# Should-stop:
# Default-Start:     S
# Default-Stop:
# X-Interactive:     true
# X-Start-Before: checkfs
# Short-Description: Delays boot to ensure USB disks are connected.
### END INIT INFO
echo "Taking a 10 second nap for USB devices to initialize!"
sleep 10
echo "Done napping!"



Are you using this script instead one by restamp?

in any case, these scripts don't work for me Sad It's strange but i can't mount usb pen al boot Sad

Hi. I have the main system on SDCard, and i want to use the pen-usb like a storage for data.
I tried to mount this pen, adding this line in /etc/fstab:
Code:

But when i start sheeva, in the boot log

So i tried to change the uuid whit the name of device:
Code:
/dev/sda1       /media/pen   ext2   defaults   0  0
but i have the same error:

Code:
Mounting local filesystems...mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist
failed.

but if i give
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /media/pen
when logged in, it mounted correctly.

could you help me to solve this problem?

sorry for delay, i give that command

Code:
setenv bootargs_console 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2'
saveenv
reset

but now i have still an "Error: unrecognized/unsupported machine ID (r1 = 0x0000020f)"

now i'll try to reset bootargs....



EDIT: ok, now i give that command:
Code:
setenv mainlineLinux yes
setenv arcNumber 2097
saveenv
reset
and now system works! I have the login screen Smiley

I remember to wrote "mainlineLinux=yes". Usually i copy-paste the line of code, so i can't made error. I'll try to re-set that variable

Its been a while for me to remember how the u-boot mmc code work. so I am guess here.

May be you have a SD with partition size large than 4GB? the mmc code can only support less than 4G partition.

There are some timing issue in mmc code. it may be easier to change to a new SD card that will work with sheevaplug than try to debug this problem. I got a few Kinston 4G class 6 and some ADATA 4G class 6 that will work with sheevaplug.

Good luck Smiley

i can't find a kingston 4gb class6. Only class4 for 4gb. class6 is on 8gb.
is the same, a kingston 4gb class4 ?

EDIT: I just tried a Kentron 2GB SD, and it seems to work correctly
14  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: no mmc card found on: May 26, 2010, 12:22:47 AM
you can format this error by converter.
 Roll Eyes Cry
how?

ps: which SD do you use? it works?
15  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: no mmc card found on: May 23, 2010, 05:55:06 AM
i have 90MB /boot, 3.3GB /root and 500MB swap
i have a 4GB SanDisk SDHC Class 2.
If the problem is the model of sd, i'll try a kingston sd.
