1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.39.2 new kernel available on: July 01, 2011, 09:56:10 AM
Would you be willing to share your download stats?  I'm just curious how many people are running updated kernels on the different platforms.

How stable is the libertas driver and firmware for you?

Not sure yet.  I've had problems with it in the past, but I'm not sure what versions I was using.  I've been running wired and just recently had a reason to try wireless again.  I'll post if I run into any issues.

Easier way (for me) to set up wifi client:
1) Delete (or rename) /root/init_setup.sh
2) apt-get install wpasupplicant libertas-firmware
3) modify /etc/network/interfaces for your setup, ie:
Code:
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid myssid
wpa-psk mypassword
4) reboot

I'm running debian squeeze with the cxbiker kernel, but this should work on the factory kernel and rootfs too.
4  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Dreamplug with USB powered HDD? on: June 21, 2011, 06:22:52 PM
Anyone running a Dreamplug with a USB powered HDD?  None of mine work, so I assume the plug doesn't provide enough current (the drive lights go on but uboot doesn't recognize that it's there).  Powered drives or memory sticks work fine.

The screws are under the rubber feet.
6  General Category / General Discussion / Updated Dreamplug Debian rootfs - what changed? on: May 02, 2011, 01:18:43 PM
Looks like a rev 0.2 of the debian dreamplug rootfs was posted a few days ago.  Anyone know what changed?  Looks like it's still Lenny.
7  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Dreamplug - same old wireless failures? on: April 24, 2011, 11:45:49 AM
Hmm...

Dreamplug, updated to the latest u-boot, 2.6.38.4 kernel from sheeva.with-linux, debian squeeze rootfs, running wifi only.  Started doing some simple wireless stress tests (repeatedly downloading a large file with wget).  After a short time:

The unit is slightly warm, but not hot like the guruplug.  But the failures look like the same old thing.  Anyone else?

x_bootcmd_kernel=fatload usb 0 0x6400000 uImage

So, on a dreamplug, copy the kernel to /media/usb1 instead of /boot, add mainlineLinux and arcNumber to u-boot env, and it boots and runs fine.  I've only done very limited testing, but it runs and wireless works.  Thanks for adding dreamplug support!

OK, thanks.  I'll post the factory bootargs later, but I know it's /boot/uImage.
11  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.38.4 new kernel available on: April 22, 2011, 01:22:33 PM
For Dreamplugs:
sudo ./README-DREAM-UPDATE.sh 2.6.38.4 (installs 2.6.38.4 to disk

The Dreamplug README talks about modifying bootargs.  If I have my /boot as vfat on the first partition of the uSD, can I leave it that way?
12  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: iwconfig kernel oops on: April 22, 2011, 08:12:44 AM
I have been able to switch to client mode and run fine, but I get the kernel oops if I run iwconfig.  I'm running the kernel from Google code and an updated Squeeze.
13  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Flash Uboot on Bricked Dreamplug? on: April 20, 2011, 06:32:28 PM
I think NOR is different than NAND is there should be no bad block, at least from source code I don't see and bad block management (as there no {read/write}.e subcommand)

That's what I thought too.
14  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Flash Uboot on Bricked Dreamplug? on: April 20, 2011, 04:14:26 PM
As an unrelated aside, might be safer to write.e instead of just write (ignores bad blocks).

Does write.e work with sf?  I didn't try it.
15  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Flash Uboot on Bricked Dreamplug? on: April 20, 2011, 01:14:06 PM
I did this:

sf probe 0
sf erase 0x0 0x100000
sf write 0x6400000 0x0 0x100000
