Your mentioned 5v/3A power supply can deliver 15 watts. Your sheeveplug draws what it needs. Barring power supply efficiencies and overhead, the power draw should be very similar.

2nice, for future reference, ppd's are on the print server in /etc/cups/ppd

Along with cups, install cups-driver-gutenprint
apt-get install cups-driver-gutenprint

Now you have a lot of drivers. Log into cups from your browser to configure:

You might have better luck with nano. I sure did.
37  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Using the SheevaPlug as a fileserver? on: June 04, 2010, 03:42:39 PM
The other machines on your LAN, are they linux or winboxen?
If linux, you have a choice between NFS or Samba to share files. If winboxen, Samba would be the easiest.
I'm sharing via NFS with autofs to my personal LAN, all linux based. At a site I provide IT support for, filesharing is via Samba server (not a gplug!) to winboxen.
I can help with <cough> config files! The stock gplugS kernel is not compiled with support for nfs-kernel-server, only nfs-user-server, which seems a bit slower to connect.

feffer, I'd be interested in seeing what my cupsd.conf file is missing:
The default file has several stanzas added to the bottom where the posted one leaves off.

We may indeed have different cupsd.conf.default files. Here's the last bit of mine:
sheevaplug-debian:~# tail /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.default

  <Limit All>
    Order deny,allow

# End of "$Id: cupsd.conf.in 7199 2008-01-08 00:16:30Z mike $".

40  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Startup Scripts or monitor scripts on: June 02, 2010, 11:39:44 AM
So is there a way that i can get the startup scripts for certain apps to only activate only certain conditions? like a uuid of a drive being mounted

man udev will show you the options for what you desire.
/etc/udev is the configuration directory

Look at dmesg after you plug your modem in to see how it is identified. How did you modify rules.d?

Here's mine. I've commented out all but one getty.

ubertekton, See this post:

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist is the file you want. I have theese entries in mine:

blacklist visor
blacklist ipv6
blacklist btmrvl
blacklist btmrvl_sdio
blacklist bluetooth
blacklist libertas
blacklist libertas_sdio

As per the directions, you need to run wlan.sh
It is said to be located in your /root directory. Mine is not. To find it no matter where it is use which:

sheevaplug-debian:~# which wlan.sh

As you can see mine is in /usr/bin

Now you need to execute the script upon startup. One way to do that is to call the program from /etc/rc.local

sheevaplug-debian:~# /nano /etc/rc.local

Insert the path to wlan.sh, wheather it be /root/wlan.sh or /usr/bin/wlan.sh on a new line after /root/init_setup.sh

exit & reboot

HTH, Jim
45  General Category / General Discussion / Re: A project with guruplug on: May 21, 2010, 06:18:01 AM
The directions assume one knows how to create a file.
Do this:

#nano my.conf

Now you have my.conf (a new file) opened with an editor (nano). Copy and paste or type the contents the example my.conf into your open nano session, replacing <SSID> and <WPA_KEY> with your values.

^x (that's ctrl-x) to exit, answer y to save, and then enter.

Now when you issue the comand
#cat my.conf

The contents will be displayed.
