No answer?  Cry

Also with this version I get the following error on booting:
leds-gpio: probe of leds-gpio failed with error -22

With all 3.x.x kernels I flash I have this error.  Undecided

Any fix???

I have an esata Sheevaplug.

This kernel incorporates the latest linuxtv drivers?

I'm basically just looking for something to play around, install new kernels and see what use cases for such a device I might find...

The DreamPlug looks interesting, as does the D2Plug.

Hi all,
I'm quite familiar with Linux, cross-compiling and so on - no problem.
I read a lot about failing PSUs and heat problems (Sheeva and Guru) - are those problems resolved or still present?
Considering it would just be to serve web pages and generally 'play around', what PC is a good buy?
Thank you!
6  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Debian Installer broken? on: August 12, 2011, 06:05:57 PM
I bought a sheevaplug with ubuntu not realizing that 9.04 isn't supported anymore. So I decided to install Debian on it.

I'm Following these instructions (and these ) and I'm having trouble installing debian.

When I get to the debian installer I see this:

It displays funny characters and I can't get through the install process.

Is it the installer language? is incorrect characters? I've tried it in Xterm and Terminal and they both display the incorrect characters.

Does anyone know a fix?
7  General Category / General Discussion / SheevaPlug or GuruPlug? on: June 05, 2010, 03:18:41 PM
i'm new to plugcomputers and i would like to buy one to replace the old server i have (around 80W in power 24/7).

Right now my server is a file-server (samba and nfs), a SVN server and a web-server (apache+php+mysql).
I would like the new plugcomputer to replace it in all these functions plus run a tor-node/hidden-service and connect a webcam.

I use linux from a long time (mostly Mandriva) so i don't think ubuntu will be a problem to me.

Unfortunately i know almost nothing about plugcomputers so i ask your help to pick one that would satisfy my needs.
I'll have an eSata disk, so i can only choose plugcomputers with the eSata plug.

Which one should i choose? SheevaPlug or GuruPlug? If i have well understood GuruPlug is an evolution of SheevaPlug, but i have read here many "horror-stories" about it. It seems that it overheats and it stopped working to several users while the same users say that they never had a problem with SheevaPlug.

What is _your_ experience with GuruPlug?

Also, i see that GuruPlug does have an optional JTAG board... do i need it? What is it used for? Also... does the SheevaPlug come with the JTAG board too? Is it included in its price?

I see here http://www.newit.co.uk/shop/products.php?cat=5 that there are two kinds of SheevaPlugs with eSata:
- eSata Sheeva
- eSata Sheeva Multi
what's the difference between the two? Why can't i find this "eSata Sheeva Multi" on the GlobalScale website?
Is the developer kit included also in the eSata Sheeva Multi?

Thank you,
