1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: GuruPlug HeatPlate on: October 21, 2010, 08:04:17 AM
Does anyone know how big a fan this thing can handle before it becomes a burden on the power supply? I was thinking of popping the circular labeled piece of plastic off the of top and mounting a 60mm fan there....

Have a look at http://bzed.de/posts/2010/09/refactoring_the_guruplug_server_plus_-_part_two/
If you add a 60mm to 80mm fan adapter you might even use a silent 80mm fan.

Make sure you remove the heat spreading piece of alloy and maybe add some holes to let the air in/out. Then a slow fan should be enough to keep everything cool.

Do you think a new installation with fat /boot filesystem could solve the problem ? (except buggy USB u-boot boot support)
Maybe I could only do mkimage manually on fat /boot partition

Never worked for me, I'm afraid - but I think it was more an issue with talking to the usb devices properly than an issue with the fat support. Not sure, though, didn't spend much time on it.

Other thing:
Can I keep in NAND both uImage/uInitrd for HDD and NAND distros ?
I want to keep default guruplug-lenny on NAND and squeeze on HDD.

No, doubt that. But you could copy the modules from the NAND to your hdd/sdcard and just use the same Kernel and initrd for both. That *might* work - there is no warranty that it does, though.
Or copy the system from the NAND to a different partition/sdcard, then you have space in the NAND for more kernels...

Hey!

I've just posted a short howto on installing Debian sid on the GuruPlug here: http://bzed.de/posts/2010/05/installing_debian_on_the_guruplug_server_plus/

Hope it is useful, comments and bugfixes are welcome! Especially if you find a better working uBoot, please let me know - I don't have the time to compile and test a new one this week.

Cheers,

Bernd
