226  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30.4 new release on: August 03, 2009, 05:03:24 PM
It is 32768, perhaps the readme needs to be reworded, as this caused me some confusion, and I had already expected it not to recover gracefully after a reboot because that file was not present on my system....

Couple of problems here.

1/ http://sheeva6.with-linux.com/sheeva/ does not point to a valid domain, so the script just downloads a openDNS index.html file and then fails.   I had to comment out the wget for this line.

2/ I don't have a /etc/sysctl.d/10-process-security.conf !!!!

Got mine today

Ordered 5th June
Received 3rd August

2 Months leadtime currently.   I was tempted to change my order to a UK version, but didn't want to confuse things/delay things.  For the sake of an adapter or a figure8 lead, it was simply not worth the hassle. (the UK version was also slightly more for some reason).

That said, if anyone knows where to buy the plastic thingy that I could convert a US one to a UK one, I would be grateful :-)   Perhaps Globalscale will read this, and feel shameful they failed their estimated leadtime by 4 weeks and underperformed on the email customer service, and might pop one in the post for me  Grin

I like to understand how things work, so might update uBoot manually.   Is there a good concise guide on how to do this?.

I also seem to recall reading the non marvel kernels don't have power management.  Is this true?  As thats pretty big omission and a reason why I might pass on updating.
230  General Category / General Discussion / My Plug Plans ... on: July 31, 2009, 10:29:39 AM
Just need a little guidance, make sure I have not lost the plot.

I'm gonna update my plug when it arrives.

From what I can tell from the large amounts of disparate information, I have 2 options (perhaps more if I want to move away from Ubuntu).

Method 1:   Update the current install manually. ie:
   fix the broken bits from here: http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/New_Plugger_How_To
   update the packages: " apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade ; apt-get autoremove"
   update the kernel using this: http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/Install_Prebuilt_Kernels_From_sheeva.with-linux.com

Method 2: use Sheevaplug installer - alpha-6.

So now my questions.   Will these 2 methods leave me roughly in the same position?  Is there advantages or disadvantages with either?  Is there anything else I need to do before I start configuring and install my specific stuff?  It's it recommended to update the bootloader?

My last question is kernel related.  My understanding is the latest 2.6.30 kernels contain **MOST** of the stuff the Marvell supplied kernel has, what exactly will I miss out on if I update?

Ordered mine 5th June, was told June 29, but this fell through, and now they are telling me July 13-17

Globalscale are a shambles (a quick search on these forums will reveal the extent of peoples problems with them), it's good to see alternative suppliers appearing, as bad companies don't deserve to survive in todays climate, and people will switch elsewhere as soon as there is an alternative.

Now been told July 27th as my ship date.

Seems the 4 week leadtime has stretched into a 7 week leadtime..

Try emailing them from a different address - they ignored several of my emails.

What a fantastic Customer Service ethos...

Looking for a develepment kit - maybe you are tired of yours.... Grin

You'll be lucky...  The amount of grief required just to get a Dev Kit is HUGE... !!!

OMG! It's on its way! Ordered may 26th, shipped july 14th.

Ordered 10 days after you, no sign of anything yet.   Did they email you shipping confirmation?   I can't even get a email response from them...

The Ionics Sheevaplugs were also featured in this weeks Electronics Weekly magazine  in the UK.

Personally, I wished I waited and ordered from Ionics, as Globalscale seem to be pretty unreliable, as my Sheeveplug is overdue and Globalscale seem to be conveniently ignoring my emails asking what's going on...

Should be getting my SheevaPlug in the close future (today is when deliveries arrive from manufacturer Ihave been told).  Thinking of updating with this before I start tinkering.

Are there any updated alphas planned soon?  Should I wait until A7 arrives?  Does it contain the updated "Open U-boot" (is this the same as "DAS U-boot"?) which boots faster?    Lots of information to take in, lots of different information, Lots of informtion written by people that know what they are doing!!!!

Slightly put off updating because it's got a 2.6.30 RC kernel, rather than the final of 2.6.30.  Would rather wait if I knew there was one in the cooker and coming soon...

Thanks.
238  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Is mainstream 2.6.30 now totally suitable for Sheevaplug? on: June 14, 2009, 03:14:00 PM
The wiki says the folowing:

Quote
As for today (April-27 2009) kernel.org 2.6.30-rc2 already have most of the bits to get a kernel up and running, missing the cpuidle framework and a fix for the SDIO interface that can be patched from the Marvell git.

So the question is, now that 2.6.30 is released, did the 2 patches mentioned above make it into the mainline kernel?  Can people use standard kernel sources from www.kernel.org without needing special patches?
239  General Category / General Discussion / Ordered a sheevaplug today.. Couple of newbie questions... on: June 05, 2009, 10:19:35 AM
Want to run a mediaserver (TwonkyMedia) and samba, and a couple of other bits and bobs (rtorrent for example).  I have a Western Digital Mybook Mirror.

Does the OS live in flash on a readonly filesystem?   Do I have to build the OS image and flash the device with it, or can I ssh to the default install, load applications, and they remain there through reboots.  I suppose the core question is, is the a read-only filesystem?

I skimmed the FAQ and did not see anything about these basics..

I'm sure it will all fall into place when the unit arrives, however in the meantime can someone direct me to some light reading...

Also have some questions.   What sort of Indians do I need?  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley
