1  General Category / General Discussion / Re: ntpdate doesn't see servers on: April 17, 2009, 02:41:25 PM
The manpage for ntpdate(1) http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/dapper/en/man1/ntpdate.1.html shows the server name as being required.  That's the way I've always seen it since the dark ages...

Also ntpdate seems to have been deprecated in the last few years...it disappeared after Ubuntu 6.06LTS. The FreeBSD 7.x manpage lists it in a state of mourning, being replaced by ntpd -q [but the Linux ntpd does not list -q as an option].

note that it's the B channel, not the A

Yes, I tried this and it does work for me.  The 2303 driver stuff mentioned in the wiki does not work on my Mac Mini intel box, though...it loads the drivers but does not recognize the ports.

I'm still looking for a FreeBSD solution though, as listed here http://openplug.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=39.0
3  General Category / General Discussion / console access from a freebsd box? on: April 11, 2009, 08:03:14 PM
Has anyone been able to use cu or tip from a freebsd box to access the mini-usb console?  I get

ugen0: <FTDI SheevaPlug JTAGKey FT2232D B, class 0/0, rev 2.00/5.00, addr 2> on uhub1

when I plug it in, but I think more drivers might be needed on the freebsd box.

It does come with a ~6 ft power cord, if nothing else you can snip off the US end and install a local replacement plug on the end of the wire.

Definitely WiFi instead of  [or at least in addition to] the wired ethernet.  For now I'll be using a lot of plugged-in USB devices and that's okay in a development world, but for the end users, they should be able to just plug it in the wall and use it.

The user is root and the password is nosoup4u.

I'm intrerested in this too.  Looks fairly straightforward.  http://wiki.freebsd.org/FreeBSDMarvell
