16  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.38.2, 2.6.37.6 and 2.6.32.36 new kernels available on: April 10, 2011, 10:05:46 AM
Would be nice if the script would get the latest and greatest if the version is not specified.

Well the plug rebooted and is running again, should I be concerned about any side-effects from this?

19  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: The alternative Debian install method. on: February 24, 2011, 02:01:43 AM
  • Script now online
  • Updated Squeeze rootfs (dated yesterday), tested.  Included a PackageList.txt
  • Uploading Wheezy rootfs (dated today), untested.  Included a PackageList.txt

Enjoy.   If anyone is brave enough to try out the wheezy rootfs, please post here if it's working for you.  I have uber-stable Squeeze setup and I don't want to disturb that right now, but as squeeze packages become outdated I will switch to wheezy at some point.

If you want to see the package differences between Squeeze and Wheezy, I have attached a HTML report with the differences.
20  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: The alternative Debian install method. on: February 23, 2011, 01:52:50 AM
Just updating my script, retired Lenny, promoted Squeeze to stable, and introduced Wheezy...

Script is online, testing the prebuilt packages now, will upload them when done.

Bump..

https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/358/linux-arm-support

Don't forget, you can use all your points again after 30 days!
22  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: The alternative Debian install method. on: January 14, 2011, 06:59:55 AM
Some of these Debian install methods seem massively convoluted.   I don't consider myself a hardcore Linux guy, but I found the self-build method I used for this method trivial and it flashed using ESIA.   Why complicate things?   I have a uber-stable squeeze install of Debian that uses Sheeva-With-Linux mainstream kernels, and i'm guessing that's what 99% of people want to be running.
23  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Dropbox for LinuxARM. on: December 28, 2010, 01:27:10 AM
Also don't forget, all your votes get returned after 30 days, so you can vote again.   Lets get the status of Dropbox ARM port right up there on Dropbox's TODO list.
24  General Category / General Discussion / Dropbox for LinuxARM. on: December 27, 2010, 11:07:06 AM
Anyone use Dropbox?  (if not, why not?)   The only problem is, no Linux/ARM support.

If you have a Dropbox account, can you vote for ARM Dropbox support.

https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/358/linux-arm-support

You can use more than one vote (just keep voting until it tells you you have no more votes left).

Cheers.
25  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: The alternative Debian install method. on: December 22, 2010, 05:15:23 PM
Yes, I still support it.

Just tried both Lenny (stable) and Squeeze (cutting edge) and they both compile fine on my Sheevaplug.   What errors are you seeing exactly?
26  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Poll: What is the status of your SheevaPlug's Power Supply? on: November 14, 2010, 03:11:09 PM
Mine Sheevaplug PSU failed this weekend.   Looking at the design it's clear why it's failed.

It's also rather shocking that supplies of replacement PSU's are not realilly available from Globalscale and it's distributors seeing as it's a know issue.   If you have a Sheevaplug and you have the original PSU, then I suspect yours is living on borrowed time...

Will replacing the capacitiors being mine back to life?  (it wasn't totally dead, I had flashing LED's)
27  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: eSata not working after kernel 2.6.35 on: September 23, 2010, 01:07:43 PM
I had random USB HDD stability problems since going to 2.6.35.   Think it's time to load an older 2.6.34 kernel and see if things stabilize.
28  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.35.4 new release on: September 15, 2010, 11:33:46 AM
Any chance CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME can be enabled.   It gives timestamps in dmesg output.   I don't think it has any other overhead, and makes debugging problems rather simpler :-)
29  General Category / General Discussion / Re: New Apple TV device as a Plug Computer ($99) on: September 05, 2010, 02:17:57 PM
It's 99 in the UK, and for 199 I can get a PS3 that does all the same stuff and a tonne of other stuff two.  I also don't have to deal with Apples corrupt business practices and lousy build quality.

this all sort of stopped working for me recently.

I ended going back to:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          wait4usbdisks
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Should-Start:
# Should-stop:
# Default-Start:     S
# Default-Stop:
# X-Interactive:     true
# X-Start-Before: checkfs
# Short-Description: Delays boot to ensure USB disks are connected.
### END INIT INFO
echo "Taking a 10 second nap for USB devices to initialize!"
sleep 10
echo "Done napping!"


and then:

Code:
update-rc.d wait4usbdisks.sh  defaults
