1  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Updating sheevaplug software on: April 26, 2011, 02:50:05 PM
I recently upgraded mine to Debian Squeeze using the instructions from Martin at http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug.

You can install on the internal flash, SD card or USB drive thumb drive. If you want to install on USB or SD card, you need to update uBoot first.

Steps from the guide are simple. If you never installed Debian, I'd recommend installing it on a PC first so you know what to expect and make the right choices for you, partitioning wise.

I got mine on 8 gb SD card, running smoothly.

Did they reply back to you then? I emailed 3 times and got nothing, when I asked to cancel my guruplug and process a refund that was done overnight. No word about the PS problem yet.

You could have your choice, either you could send the plug to them to repair, or they would send you the power supply. I chose to have it sent to me.  They are currently waiting for the shipment of power supplies to come in, and they anticipate sending them out in late April.

Do this release support the cryptografic hardware that the original kernel supports? I think openvpn hardware accelerated would be pretty cool

thanks for all the work

I know that's not what you asked but, given the embedded nature (lower hardware specs) it is actually worse to run on 64bit, as you gain nothing and the pointers cost more to store the same info... so even if the Sheeva supports it, you would have to hack it to add more than 4gigs of memory to make it worthwhile...

Hi, how did you get around the compilation problems?

I keep getting:

src/add.c:1: error: bad value (armv5tejl) for -march= switch
Assembler messages:
Error: unknown architecture `armv5tejl'

Error: unrecognized option -march=armv5tejl
make[2]: *** [src/add.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [gsm/lib/libgsm.a] Error 2
make: *** [codecs] Error 2


I installed from source because I needed the new version,, that is not available from package. The only issue that I found is regarding the bluetooth audio. I didn't try others features....only SIP and chan_mobile.
