1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Recover after u-boot erase on: January 26, 2012, 03:36:31 AM
How to recover u-boot?

After doing following I've lost the SheevaPlug. What can be done?

...
Marvell>> reset

NOTHING


The OP obviously has no access to the u-boot command line any more. So it's impossible to recover the Sheevaplug using the posted answers.
But this should help: http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Setting_Up_OpenOCD_Under_Linux#Example_2:_Reflashing_a_Bricked_U-Boot_.28Method_1.29

Follow the wiki article to setup OpenOCD before using described method 1 or 2 to reflash u-boot. u-boot images can be obtained at http://www.downloadsnewit.co.uk/CD-images/Sheeva_CD or http://www.plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=select&id=6.

good luck!

Thanks punaniac! Works like a charm Cheesy.

Since the information how to get your own OS onto the box is rather "distributed", I put together a page that summarizes the steps: http://bit.ly/mZJ48r.

Perhaps it is of use to someone.

nice wrapup... can you confirm that your outlined kernel patch is working for handling the LEDs and buttons?

best regards.

update:
I succeeded in replacing my eSATA Sheevaplug with the IcyBox.
The IcyBox boots fine from USB and eSATA (if you built your kernel with mv_sata support compiled in). The only necessary change was setting the correct arcNumber in u-Boot environment for booting a recent kernel (mine is 2.6.37).

Code:
Marvell>> setenv mainlineLinux yes
Marvell>> setenv arcNumber 1680
Marvell>> saveenv
Marvell>> reset

Please note that setting mainlineLinux to yes prevents the factory NAND installation from booting (which is ok for me as the stock firmware is known to "phone home").

Just to give you some more information on my configuration: I'm running the following services on my IcyBox now.
- WLAN access point hostapd with a TP-Link TL-WN321G (rt73usb chipset), bridged with eth0
- VDR 1.7.16 using a USB DVB-S2 receiver TT-connect s2-3600 with svdrp support for remote clients
- NFS and tftpd-hpa for netbooting my diskless VDR client
- nginx, mysql, php5 for serving a local wiki
- TwonkyServer 6.0.x for UPnP audio and video streaming
- Samba network shares
- netatalk for TimeMachine share

Free RAM is about 170MB.

very interesting and cheap device, indeed. There have been some successful efforts, e.g. to gain access to the serial console (http://forum.nas-portal.org/showthread.php?12855-Ib-nas6220-b). Although the discussion is focused on the 2-bay Ib-NAS-6220b, the PCB location of the serial port is the same. I feel really tempted to give this one a try...

so I just ordered one of these... Ib-NAS-6210. Following the thread linked in my previous post, I soldered a serial cable. This is what I got.

I haven't attached this device to my home network, nor have I changed anything in its configuration. Next step is to try this thing to boot from USB and eSATA. If that works I will replace my eSATA Sheeva by this one as it's got everything I need in just one case. (3x USB, eSATA, internal SATA, small fan, fancy design)

best regards.

Hi,

 This device looks very tiny, if we could modify the embedded linux on it, for this price, is on my wish-list!

 Read this, seems promising.... http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/is-it-possible-to-install-armedslack-on-a-icy-box-ib-nas6210-881511/

PacoLM

very interesting and cheap device, indeed. There have been some successful efforts, e.g. to gain access to the serial console (http://forum.nas-portal.org/showthread.php?12855-Ib-nas6220-b). Although the discussion is focused on the 2-bay Ib-NAS-6220b, the PCB location of the serial port is the same. I feel really tempted to give this one a try...

Hi,

I just solved this problem yesterday. I'm running Debian squeeze on my eSATA Sheevaplug, but that shouldn't make a difference for you.
Netatalk 2.2beta4 is present in current Debian unstable/sid repository. So you'd have to install netatalk from there as explained below.
After installing netatalk, just follow this guide about configuring netatalk on using Debian/Ubuntu as a TimeMachine server: http://www.kremalicious.com/2008/06/ubuntu-as-mac-file-server-and-time-machine-volume/ (Skip section 1 about installing netatalk...)

(1) Add the Debian unstable repository to your sources.list (choose your preferred Debian mirror, I chose the German one):
Code:
echo deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main non-free contrib >> /etc/apt/sources.list

(2) I use apt pinning to prevent other packages than netatalk from being updated...
Code:
cat << EOF >> /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 200
EOF

(3) verify the lower pinning priority of unstable vs. lenny
Code:
apt-cache policy
expected result is the pinning priority specified above (=200). This priority must be lower than the other priorities of lenny.
Code:
...
 200 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable/contrib armel Packages
     release o=Debian,a=unstable,n=sid,l=Debian,c=contrib
     origin ftp.de.debian.org
 200 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable/non-free armel Packages
     release o=Debian,a=unstable,n=sid,l=Debian,c=non-free
     origin ftp.de.debian.org
 200 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main armel Packages
     release o=Debian,a=unstable,n=sid,l=Debian,c=main
     origin ftp.de.debian.org
...

(4) update the apt database and explicitly install netatalk from unstable
Code:
aptitude update
aptitude -t unstable install netatalk

(5) check installed version of netatalk
Code:
apt-cache show netatalk
expected result is netatalk 2.2beta4
Code:
...
Package: netatalk
Version: 2.2~beta4-1
...

Hope this helps...

Seems that the netatalk developers have released the final version 2.2 source on 27th July. So most probably this will be updated in Debian unstable during the next days/weeks/months... ;-)

Best regards,
Andreas

you can find everything you need to know at the links provided below.
In order to install Debian, you don't need a serial cable and you don't have to open the case if you follow the instructions at the provided websites. But it's necessary to have a cable in case you bricked the u-Boot environment.
Dockstar comes preinstalled with a stripped down Linux similar to Pogoplug. You can install Ubuntu 9.04 or Debian to its internal 256 MB flash or to an external USB device, the latter in a fashion that leaves the default installation untouched.
