1  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Plugcomputer 3.0 on: June 24, 2010, 10:50:51 PM
My guess - 6-12 months. After the Guruplug disaster I tend to 12.
2  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Sheeva with Debian - replace temporarily USB with eSATA? on: June 16, 2010, 09:37:31 AM
Ok. My lack of "linux knowledge" (that SATA is not just a "driver problem") plus some contradictions lead to my confusion (and problems I have).

Your tutorial states: "If you're running a version of u-boot older than 3.4.19 or if you're running version 3.4.27 you have to upgrade u-boot before proceeding with this installation! ". The link to upgrade u-boot leads to U-Boot 3.4.27+pingtoo binary. Everything works fine as long as you don't need SATA support. Now you added the SATA images so I thought everything is just fine.

Using the older! ATA enabled uboot from NewIT there's the contradiction with your tutorial because this image has uboot 3.4.16. Never the less I ignored that and I tried to use this old uboot version with your tutorial and it didn't work. I don't remember the error message and that's why I installed from scratch (an hour ago) and now it works. I guess because of the new SATA images you provide.
So right now it seems to work the way I initially wanted it to work. I'd like to thank you for your effort and patience.

By the way - I just found another contradiction. "or if your're running version 3.4.27 you have to upgrade". Your linked pingtoo image has the version 3.4.27.

I used a 4GB Transcent USB Stick. No problems at all.
4  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Sheeva with Debian - replace temporarily USB with eSATA? on: June 15, 2010, 12:00:25 AM
I reinstalled everything using your updated tutorial. I still get the same error message. The Sheeva does like my hard disk. I tested the ESIA installer and it worked (out of the box). The big difference is using another (older) uboot version (uboot-sata-090903.bin from NewIT). But with this version your installer won't work (I've already tried that).
 

Here's the content of my dmesg:

YEAH!

Does the note on your site also apply for the newly added eSATA Images?
Quote
the installer is currently broken because of a bug. Please wait a few days before you install Debian. I will remove this note when it's safe to install again. Do not try to install with the image linked below until then. However, you can use the daily installer image instead. -- Martin Michlmayr, 2010-06-03.
6  General Category / General Discussion / Re: New QT based installer: Enhanced Sheevaplug Installer Application (ESIA) on: June 10, 2010, 09:30:01 AM
After I'm stuck enabling SATA using the Cyrius Guide, I tried ESIA and it worked without any problems.

But since I don't do the Debian Squeeze Installation myself, I don't have the control about adding an additional user, set my own root password, set my own hostname etc.
I'm fine with it because I can change it afterwards without any problems.
But what I don't like is the automatic partitioning.
I would like to have a 256MB /boot with ext2, 256MB /swap and the rest / with ext3.
How can I do that after ESIA just created one partition with everything in it without loosing the OS and with all path correct using the correct swap partition etc.?
7  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: What filesystems are supported for SD cards? on: June 09, 2010, 11:22:53 PM
This is a bug in the e2fsprogs. I came across it some days ago.
It has been fixed in the unstable tree of debian. So I fixed it by downloading the deb files for e2fsprogs and the 2 dependencies from the debian/unstable site and installed it via dpkg -i <debfile>

By the way - the SD Slot can't distinguish between filesystems. So all filesystems are supported as long as there are "drivers" for it.
8  General Category / General Discussion / Re: How can i edit the files in sheevaplug? vi does not work well on: June 09, 2010, 11:16:07 PM
If you try to modify a file like /etc/apt/sources.list only root is allowed to edit this file.
So if you use vi as normal user to edit this file you can press i as long as your finger falls off  Grin You do not have the permission.
9  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Sheeva with Debian - replace temporarily USB with eSATA? on: June 09, 2010, 01:51:13 AM
I have installed everything above.

fdisk -l does not show anything except the SD Card.

During the boot sequence I get several error messages:

SATA max UDMA/133
ata1: SATA Link down (SStatus 0 SControl F300)
ata2: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
2 SRST failed errorno = -16
limiting SATA link speed to 1.5GBps

What am I doing wrong?

Ok - time has passed by.
My kernel is "2.6.32-5-kirkwood" and I use dm-crypt/luks.

Testing an external USB Disk I get:

And

11  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / [SOLVED]Unable to format a disk (mkfs.ext3) because of a Debian Bug on: June 04, 2010, 04:06:06 AM
I like to format a hard drive with "mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/FTP" (it's a dm-crypt device, that's why the path looks uncommon).
I get the following error message: "mkfs.ext3: /lib/libblkid.so.1: version `BLKID_2.17' not found (required by mkfs.ext3)"
After searching the web I found it's an official debian bug (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=583910).
This very morning one of the developer posted "Fix is already uploaded to unstable...." so I downloaded e2fsprogs_1.41.12-2_armel.deb and e2fslibs_1.41.12-1_armel.deb from unstable and installed it via dpkg -i packagename.

I still have this error message. Any ideas?

/edit: I forgot to install libblkid1_2.17.2-2_armel.deb from unstable.

13  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: [SOLVED]Sheevaplug won't boot debian on: June 02, 2010, 08:25:10 AM
I have the exact same problem and I also get a "/dev/sda2 does not exist" although I have used your (tbm) line for the SD card:

Quote
setenv bootargs_console console=ttyS0,115200
setenv bootcmd_mmc 'mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x01100000 /uInitrd; ext2load mmc 0:1 0x00800000 /uImage'
setenv bootcmd 'setenv bootargs $(bootargs_console); run bootcmd_mmc; bootm 0x00800000 0x01100000'
saveenv

and went through the installation 5 times using different SD Cards always using the "SD/MMC" section.

I'm not sure where to add the "root=/dev/mmcblk0p2" exactly but I'll find out using trial & error  Wink

Thank you (again)  Smiley

What's the worst what can happen in this "unstable" phase? It dismounts the drive or can it destroy the partition table and delete my data?

Will it automatically update through apt-get update after it has left the unstable phase?
