31  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: external wireless antenna? on: December 06, 2010, 01:37:00 AM
I don't have a gigabit switch but the copper heatsinks are room temp.  I still get
system freezes due to the fact that it is in client mode.
Do you think thats the software issue (bad driver) of the client mode like in the following thread?:

]One thing always gets me with this.  You appear to need to run openocd on the system that you are trying to flash.  But it's bricked, so how are you able to boot it to run anything?
No  Cheesy you didnt run opencd on the sheevaplug, but on another Linux-computer and the sheevaplug is connected to this computer as a USB-device.
So this should also work if the sheevaplug is bricked.

Sigh ... everything went fine until I changed password for root, now it won't let me in no more, ssh I always get message saying "host key verification failed" via ubuntu host,

on the Ubuntu computer searc for the file known_hosts and delete the line inside which is for the ip of your sheevaplug.

After deleting the line inside the file save it and try to connect again...

Without seriell Connection to USB-Port you could only try to manually flash the u-boot via openocd from
the Linux Command-Line.

see Example 2: Reflashing a Bricked U-Boot (Method 1)
at http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/Setting_Up_OpenOCD_Under_Linux

As netcat I did use telnet on Port 4444 (had to do this with my OpenRD, because my new U-boot
doesnt get the network port up).

openocd and the .cfg and -bin files should be in the same directory.

I did use openocd 0.3.1 in debian squeeze for that.

I will try to recover the U-Boot via USB
Any help like memory addresses and a URL for the 3.4.16 U-Boot are welcome

Thanks to Niam I did get a valid U-Boot 3.4.16 and the config-File for use with openocd
for flashing via USB (not USB-Stick).
Was a bit tricky...because of the "halt 0" Command in the Config-File...but I did get it
to work on my computer and OpeRD.
I did use openocd 0.3.1 from debian squeeze.

Now my ethernet-ports are back again and working :-)

Did you try to reseat the usb-cable? The USB Port at the Sheeva is VERY unsteady and not every USB-Cable will
connect fine (not even the in the box delivery-cable).

Did you get message that your computer does recognize the conencted USB-Device (Msg in the shell in Linux/dmesg or the
great "BaBim"-Sound in Windows)

Could you see sheeva as FTDI-Devive in lsusb?

I found also why the RT73 doesn't work on the Globalscale with the kernel 2.6.36. The driver exist in driver/net/wireless natively, but when I plug this component, I have an error : don't find rt73.bin in the syslog. So, I suppose the driver is not correct ? I'll look for older kernel version to check if there is the same problem today...

Some networkcards need additionally to the driver a firmware file, which would be loaded at system-startup.
Like the Firmware fir the one of the realtek ones there is a firmware-package for ralink
called firmware-ralink
The info for installing a rt73 into debian is at
http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/rt73
39  General Category / General Discussion / Re: How do I update the MAC address ? on: November 09, 2010, 02:26:33 PM
>>set ethaddr <MAC Address>
>>printenv ethaddr
>>saveenv
Works in my set-up.  Wink

Many Thanks for that Info....I got self changing MAC-Addresses because I did use setenv instead of set (and saveenv)
WRONG : setenv ethaddr=XX:XX:XX:XX
RIGHT: set ethaddr XX:XX:XX:XX
40  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: MAC address the same for each plug? on: November 09, 2010, 02:23:10 PM
The generated ethaddr is Marvell u-boot port specific function. the last 3 number is base on day of the year and time of the day with some shifting bits to generate. the code check if the ethaddr is not set then it will use generated number to set its value. if you let it generate then do a "saveenv" it will be there when you next reboot.

I also got the problem of changing MAC-addresses.
I used setenv and saveenv without luck, but after reading
http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=924.msg5780#msg5780
I used set and setenv and it works :-))

Sorry. I thought there are more firmwares for many realtek-cards included.

Did you install the wireless-tools as suggested on
http://wiki.debian.org/rtl818x
42  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Sheeva and Wifi on: November 09, 2010, 02:05:31 AM
Did you already install the additional paket with the realtek frimware?:
firmware-realtek
via apt-get

This is additionally needed for the modules.
43  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: ethernet stopped working after u-boot upgrade on: November 05, 2010, 09:44:35 AM
After I've updated uboot to 3.4.19 both GbEth0/GBEth1 stopped working on
openrd-client.

The same problem happend to me yesterday. I did post my problem
in the OpenRD Part from the NewIT Forum:
http://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,624.0.html

I also contacted niam to get my problem fixed like he did.

@niam: Do you did get my eMail?

45  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / U-Boot USB discovery get stuck on OpenRD Ultimate with several usb-devices on: November 04, 2010, 04:06:15 AM
While U-Boot 1.1.4/3.4.16 is scanning  the USB-Ports on my OpenRD Ultimate and a USB-Keyboard or -Mouse is connected
it wouldnt find my USB-Stick to boot from :-(
Code:
(Re)start USB...
USB:   scanning bus for devices...
      USB device not responding, giving up (status=20)
5 USB Device(s) found
       scanning bus for storage devices...
The boot process will also get stuck if I connect a LCD2USB Display (for using with LCD4LINUX) additionally to my USB-Boot-Stick :-(

When I did start only with the Stick it boots fine. After booting the Keyboad/Mouse are recognized
well and do work.....

Hmm if a Switchable-USB-Hub can solve the problem? I did see serveral USB-Hub with switches coming up
to disable some USB-devices (Green-IT? :-) )

Or will U-Boot 1.1.4/3.4.19 Or .27 do the trick if I could find the update? I want to boot with the devices already attached like
on my Dockstart with the debian/U-boot from Jeff Doozan...
