1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Another newbie stuck with USB ethernet adapters... on: July 15, 2009, 06:10:00 AM

Just an idea: Ubuntu for x86 seems to have everything enabled, at least I have never hit a snag with it while adding all sorts of peripherals and functionality to many servers utilizing it. Why not copy the config of that distribution, compile it, and see how much the kernel grows when "all options" are set?

Would be nice to have 1:1 feature set available on ARM.


i find it a good idea too, it's not always easy when u have everything running well, then u buy a new hardware & find out that u need to recompile the kernel & then bumb into new problems.

go here for a kernel with NFS support.
it should be no problem to use a Fedora 10 RootFS (which you can download from wiki)

i mean they are both not the mac-adr of the device, which was correct before flashing and  i dont understand why dmesg/ifconfig and uboot gives diffrerent mac-addresses, that means if i try to reset mac-addr from u-boot, ifconfig wouldnt help the os to have the correct mac-addr.


 

update:
remove /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and i get eth0 again

no change in mac-addr.

appletalk.ko has been added to RC7.

i have just flashed the new kernel:
habe problem with ethernet :
mac adr as firmware-output:  00:00:00:EE:51:81
mac adr from ifconfig: 00:50:43:7a:2f:08
 (it's named eth2 instead of eth0)
both are wrong.
i dont really understand what's the clue here.

another error:
Starting automounter: loading autofs4 kernel module,FATAL: Module autofs4 not found

Thanx again for your effort.

Hi,

not directly related to kernel 2.6.30-rc7, however:

i have a strange issue:

cold-reboot (power unplug-replug): it stops at uboot (Marvel >>) console
reset (via the hole on the device): boot normal

uboot & kernel on NAND
RootFS on SD-card

[...]
what could be the prob ?


I assume you're running the marvell u-boot patched to support MMC SD cards.
I see the same issue after a poweron boot:

As a workaround, you can just try to init twice the mmc:

setenv bootcmd_mmc 'mmcinit; mmcinit; ext2load mmc 0 0x0800000 /boot/uInitrd; ext2load mmc 0 0x400000 /boot/uImage'

It works for me...  Wink


i just added "rootdelay=2" to bootargs and it works now, strange

just tried to install netatalk for afp sharing, got error message:
Code:

i guess it must be something concerning kernel support Huh
could you please add this ?
thanx alot

I only have 1 sheevaplug that currently is downloading torrents and serving a 500 gb HDD via AFP and SMB, also it has mysql, apache, mpd (music player) and mt-daap(to share via itunes). The sheevaplug is connected using a standard cat 5e ethernet cable to a 100 mbps router, I have 3 computers using the services. The speed is excellent, and if I had a gigabit ethernet router it would be even better.

If you want to build a network the sheevaplug is quite a good system to use.

Hi,

could you please give some infos how did you configure AFP ? i tried it once on Debian but it didnt work, didnt tried on sheeva though.
Thanx

it works great now, :-)
thanx alot for your supports !
11  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc7 new release on: May 25, 2009, 09:02:02 AM
it's not about the filesystem, problem is that the kernel doesnt recognize the partition table of the disk, the hd has 2 partition . fdisk says there's only 1 partition, something concerning GPT Kernel support. google told me it must be smthing like this in kernel-config:

File Systems
   Partition Types
     
  • Advanced partition selection
  • EFI GUID Partition support (NEW)

what do you think ?

thanx alot
12  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc7 new release on: May 24, 2009, 06:13:38 PM
with 2.6.30-rc6 i have problem with EFI GPT (1TB USB-HD, formated with hfsplus) - cannot be mounted. Does the new kernel solve this problem ?
thanx
13  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc6 new release on: May 23, 2009, 10:57:53 AM
i tried it too, works, the only prob. is that i couldnt get the HD-Volumes Label, have to mount it like sda1, sda2..  or usb1, usb2...
any suggestion ?
14  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: SD card support on: May 22, 2009, 06:41:16 PM
i have moved the rootfs to a SDcard (sandisk 4GB, class 2), seems to boot faster than from NAN, after running for a while i get the message:

Code:
EXT3-fs error (device mmcblk0p1): htree_dirblock_to_tree: bad entry in directory #2: rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec_len=0, name_len=0
...
runs again after reboot , just not for long before the message appear again , i guess the sd-card support is not good enough maybe 
i run kernel 2.6.30R6, rootfs  ubuntu-9.0.5.Release.jffs2
15  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc6 new release on: May 22, 2009, 01:29:31 PM
works great, NFS & hfsplus  works, automount still doesnt work. which solution would u suggest as a NAS with usb-hds /automount when connected?
thanx
