Sheeva is a family of processors where the processor incorporated in the plug is ARMv5te without floating point or iwmmx.

Please refer the product spec and the data sheet and user manual of the Kirkwood chip incorporated in the plug.

Thanks for the wonderful addition.

Thanks for your feedbacks. The installer definitely lacks basic information; we will fix this in next release.
19  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: What are the proper bootm parameters? on: October 15, 2009, 04:16:34 AM
bootm command syntax is as follows -
bootm <uImage image addr> <initrd image addr>

since you are downloading images to a running u-boot from running address it's important to choose the right addresses.
Recommended to use 0x00200000 (2MB) for uImage and 0x01100000 (17MB) for initrd

%wa means that the kernel is put into idle since it is waiting for an I/O to complete (hinting your SDHC is slow)

Can you please send details on how you do the test?

If you place the relevant modules.tar.gz with uImage then the camera should work out of the box with cheese.

I know it runs on the plug but I never benchmarked it.
apt-get install memcached

i had different experience than your's on the mimo 740.
i'm using debian-lenny on that but with evtouch driver (and no evdev).

1. Patch kernel 2.6.31 with displaylink support
2. Patch kernel 2.6.31 with ei touch screen support (attached e2itouch.diff)
3. Build kernel with attached .config
4. Use attached xorg.conf that uses evtouch AND disables xorg mouse support (otherwise all sort of artifacts on clicks will happen).
5. Use calibrate application in order to perform the touch screen calibration. Cut and paste the results and place them in your xorg.conf.

Note that armin76 reported (and I reproduced) and issue with the 'console' environment variable when being manually saved in u-boot
The problem is that it doesn't get saved and always revers to the value '0xa0000'.

We found the issue and will be fixed soon with newer version of U-Boot.
27  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Directly connecting the plug with a network cable to a notebook on: September 21, 2009, 10:22:40 AM
no need for crossover since marvell phy being used in the plug autodetects speed, duplux etc...

nice Smiley

I was about to try the touch screen too.

btw - which rootfs are you using? ubuntu or debian or other?

i had some corrupted graphics when using ubuntu 9.04
29  General Category / General Discussion / Re: 32GB SDCard, choppy records on: September 15, 2009, 11:00:39 PM
which kernel are you using on the plug? The original or 2.6.30.x?

birdman - i think this is a good idea.

rooster - what do you think? shall we redirect readme.txt to the wiki and have that as the only source of info for the installer?
