No, they don't, if they have unrelated links in their signature, like you do, to boost the Google rating of their web sites.

Why not disallow unrelated Links in the Signature or disallow them there at all?
Good links could be placed in the Msg-Text - or collected at a special Place in a Wiki or a pinned
special Message.
47  General Category / General Discussion / Spam and new Users on: October 28, 2010, 01:34:06 AM
The last weeks I did see very much Spam-Messages from new Users....
They did create many new Threads on their first day or did reply to many threads
on their first day in the forum.

Is there a security hole or should the process reconsidered for registering to the forum?

I like this forum very much and dont want to search for news between the spam-messages. Huh

any idea to force the detection on gparted
Sorry I got no idea how to force it....only a SD to SATA/IDE-Adapter  Angry

ok thanks i forget to do the mkswap now it works ok, but i have another problem is that the system partion has 3GB aprox, but the system only recognized 1GB:
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mmcblk0p2         1004052    642300    310748  68% /

        Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/mmcblk0p2              65         415     2819407+  83  Linux
what can ido to expand the root partion?

 Grin it seems that you copied/dd'ed from the old Card the 1GB System Partition to the new Card onto a 2.8GB Partiton,
BUT with this action only a 1GB Partition is recognized because the filesystem end after 1GB.

On a Harddisk (you could try this also on a pc with the card in the SD-Slot) I would try GpartEd Live
With GPartEd I would delete the Swap-Partition (part of your Disk), expand the Part2 (System) to 2.8GB and after that
create a new swap (around 500MB) as Part3 at the end of the Card.

Done this on a harddisk with a Windows-Partition...you could try this with a backup of your card  Smiley
GPartEd Live is a Linux-Live-CD and should also be capable to expand ext2/ext3-Partitions.

Good Luck!

Is there a way to switch the wireless constantly off? I'm only using it connected via ethernet anyway.

Hi, i have move my debian system to another sd card with more capacity, i have partition the new sd card and copy the system install y my old card, all work well but debian(my so on sheeva) don't recognized the swap partition, here is the start up:

Did you, after creating the swap-partition, generate the swap-file-System on your device like
mkswap /dev/sda3

And the partiton has the right id as Swap-Space (0x82)?
52  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: Trouble writing U-Boot to OpenRD on: October 25, 2010, 02:01:37 AM
I finally decided to try doing the upgrade via USB and through UBoot as I did with the Sheeva. 
He used tftp, which conveniently requires no switch settings.
So I set up a tftp server, put the binary there, and gave it a shot.

Did you use the u-boot from this link?:

And do you did the update like for a sheevaplug like on this url?:
setenv serverip # IP of your TFTP server
setenv ipaddr
bubt uboot.bin
I want to try this on my OpenRD Ultimate....
53  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / OpenRD - Users here? on: October 25, 2010, 01:29:16 AM
Are there any OpenRD Users here?
Which OpenRD do you use/have?

Which OS did you (successfully) install? (Fedora/debian lenny/squeeze / ARMSlack)
Do you did install a grphical Desktop and which (Gnome/KDE/LXDE etc)
Do yout got or know something about the SATA-Install-Kit?

Where do you search for informations?
Here and at OpenRD-Google-Groups (open-rd.org), NewIT-OpenRD-Forum and OpenRD-Sheevpalug.de
arent much infos/Messages or OpenRD Users or Entrys...
So...where should we OpenRD-users go for information?

My Ultimate doesnt seems to get hot at the Ram-Area lik on the OpenRD Bas/Cleint.

There's a serial port within those 10 pins.

55  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Globalscale versus Ionics on: October 14, 2010, 12:38:48 AM
why Ionics SheevaPlug boot in 21 seconds (I connect it to power, and receive DHCP request), and the Globalscale boot in 1min30 seconds ?
Here a info regarding the boot-time from http://newit.co.uk/shop/products.php?cat=5
which sells sheevaplugs from globalscale:
The original SheevaPlug Development Kit
Either chose the original, out-of-the-factory configuration, which boots Ubuntu 9.04 from the internal NAND, this is a jsff2 - formatted file system and takes around 2 minutes to boot.  Or the UBIFS version, configured to boot a slightly trimmed-down version of Ubuntu 9.04 from the internal NAND, the system is somewhat more up-to-date, and takes around 25 seconds to boot.
56  General Category / General Discussion / Re: List of SheevaPlug variants and other low-power non-intel servers on: September 30, 2010, 07:37:58 AM
- consumer-grade (w/ case, power supply, running out of the box)
- able to run a full Linux with root access
- Internet and Storage connectivity (USB and Ethernet if not otherwise indicated)

How about the WDTV HD Live? ( see http://b-rad.cc/974/wdtv-live-unboxing-undressing/ )
- It has a case :-)
- It can run Linux / debian with a custom firmware
  http://b-rad.cc/wdlxtv-live/   and
- It has 2 USB and one Ethernet Port
- It cost around 100EUR (or $120)
- It has 256/512MB DRAM
- It has 256MB Flash
- It has also HDMI
- It has also optical Audio Out
- It has some CoProcessors (DSP)
57  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Round #1 - Your feedback required. New SheevaPlug concepts. on: September 28, 2010, 02:54:48 AM
How would you rank the below items? Please sort them by importance, starting from highest:

 4- Must be quite and doesn't include any moving parts
10- Must be build out of high quaility-parts (power-supply / flash / conenctors)
 8- Must have the best power efficiency (should have not over 40 Celsius)
 3- Must be packaged within an enclosure (vs.  bare-bones)
11- Must have the option to switch to a external power-supply
    (or power-supply detachable which leaves a standard-low-ower voltage-port)
12- Leave the jtag/rs232-port inside the case
 5- Must have slick design and look. (the case should have a passive cooling-system)
 2- Must be in the price range $100-$150
 6- Must have the highest processing power available (vs. lowest price/performance).
 7- Must have the smallest footprint possible.
 1- Must be plug computer form factor and pluggable to a wall outlet.
13- Must have a real SATA-port
14- Must have a min-pci WLAN-Card
15- Must have a status display
16- Must have an optional profession case for installing a harddrive
 9- Must be below $100
58  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Is my jtag board defective? on: September 24, 2010, 08:24:24 AM
No matter what I've done I've never seen anything come up when using my jtag board with my GuruPlug Server Plus. I use putty set at 115200,8,N,1 and never see a thing.  What am I doing wrong?
What did you try?
Did you press all cables vey frim in thier sockets (was the first problem of mine)
Did the USB-Cable connect properly (a problem mostly with Sheevas)?
Did you set the switch correct at the JTAG-Interface?
Did your computer recognize the JTAG?
Did you install the drivers for the JTAG?
Did you get a virtual COM-Port?
Did you set the right COM-Port in putty?
Did you set the Flow-Control to NONE? (OK, you did :-) via the N in 115200,8,N,1)
Did you hit Enter in putty for the prompt?

So..this are my first ideas :-)
59  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: GuruPlug Server PLUS no complaint about the fan ? on: September 24, 2010, 08:18:25 AM
and If the fan was planned to be there I think they never put it so close to the network socket...
Yes I agree, but why seems it so hard to show us a picture of the "professional upgrade kit"?
So that I could decide to buy the kit from GlobaleScale or try to build my own (better) version...
60  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: GuruPlug Server PLUS no complaint about the fan ? on: September 15, 2010, 01:59:45 AM
Looks very basic - surely that could be replaced with something quieter?
Is this the "Professional Upgrade Kit"? Or just the Basic version?
I was hoping for a new part-case with a temperature-controlled fan
and a better heat-sink.
