FedEx says I'll have the DSM-750 tomorrow.

In the mean time, I'm going to experiment with Coherence. It looks as though it just might be able to stream things like YouTube at me, as well as filesystem content.

I'm either going to have a very fun or a slightly frustrating weekend. Anyone want to place bets? Cheesy

If someone has the time to try writing a (largeish) file to their plug, and reading it from their plug, from a Windows box, I'd appreciate it. I'm curious to find out if the problem is my setup, or something to be debugged on the plug.

I just wanted to say thanks for your efforts, cbxbiker61! I installed 2.6.22.19 yesterday by simply running your script in the readme, and it worked flawlessly.

Great stuff!

You were on to something with the buffering, I think! When reading *from* the plug, my speed starts out fast and drops (quite rapidly) over time.
35  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Network: writes fast / reads slow? on: April 29, 2009, 06:16:46 PM
Hmmm... So 2.6.17+ has autotuned network settings, eh? Cool. Doesn't help me though.

Oh, and I've changed to 2.6.22.19, no difference.

root@rlyeh:/etc# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_moderate_rcvbuf
1

Yup, it's enabled.

root@rlyeh:/etc# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_rmem
4096    87380   2080768
root@rlyeh:/etc# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem
4096    16384   2080768

...and those values look sane for a box with 512M RAM.

I seem to be at full duplex:

eth0: link up, full duplex, speed 1 Gbps

Hmmm...

The files are about 500 meg each, and I'm reading to / writing from a fast external drive in a USB enclosure attached to the plug.

CPU utilization seems negligable... I'll test and see what RAM is up to.

My money's on some tweakable sysctl parameter, but I'm not deep in that area, so I'll have to do some reading.

Thanks for the ideas!

So, I just noticed: copying to the plug from a Windows box, I'm getting about 25-30 megabytes a second. Copying from the plug to the Windows box, I'm getting 2-3 megabytes a second.

Any thoughts?

I've tried two Windows boxes, one Vista and the other Windows 7. I've tried both Samba and SCP. I'm on a gig lan.

OK, I'm going to go Google.

Very cool! I can't wait to give it a try! Can it see an ext2/3 partition, so one could have their uImage in their rootfs?

Unpowered USB hubs make me nervous. I know they should work, but...

I'll be adding to this thread in a couple of days, but I'm trying something out:

I just ordered a D-Link DSM-750.

I've also installed (via apt-get) "ushare", a UPnP media server. I've pointed it at my torrent directory, and it allegedly exposes my media files (video, audio) to my local network.

The DSM-750 should be able to see that content, and show it on my TV via HDMI.

In a couple of days, we'll know for sure. Smiley

Further thoughts: I should probably move the less family-oriented content to a different directory. Wink

A week later, and I'm still rocking along with Transmission. Terrific program. I'm glad you're having success with rTorrent; it's great we have some viable options!
42  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: My SheevaPlug is very unstable on: April 28, 2009, 03:17:43 PM

.... and it's a development board.


This exact same hardware is being sold as a commercial product.

PogoPlug.  so I'd not blame it on begin a Dev board when there is a company shipping it as a fully stable product.


I don't think your logic follows. If I were to buy a pigeon and sell it as a barn owl, is it really the pigeon's fault that it doesn't feel like catching mice?

Uh, OK, that's as far as I'm taking that analogy. Time for some coffee. Cheesy
43  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Date-Time on: April 28, 2009, 08:24:58 AM
Looks like /etc/init.d/rc.local runs /etc/rc.local...
44  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Date-Time on: April 28, 2009, 07:56:34 AM
I just noticed that in the stock rootfs, the following lines are in rc.local:

date 012618002009
hwclock -w

Interesting!
45  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: How to mount USB drive at startup on: April 27, 2009, 05:46:50 PM
Cool. Smiley

I need to do the same with my plug, next time I get it serial'd in.
