1  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Ubuntu 9.04: No Updates since month? on: December 13, 2009, 06:52:07 AM
OK - tnx. I read the nailed note about 9.10 http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=885.msg5473#msg5473, however reading

"The 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope version will be keep up-to-date by Ubuntu until 2011 or so, yet its not official. However you won't get the latest updates/packages like you'll get with 9.10 and future releases.
A solution is switching to Debian or another distribution.
"

I was under the impression that there would be at least some updates.

Sorry, that was my mistake. I've asked an ubuntu developer and he has told me that jaunty will only get security updates, i've modified that message.

I'm not sure chromium even builds natively on arm :/
3  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / [IMPORTANT] Ubuntu 9.10(Karmic) and newer versions WON'T work on the sheevaplug on: October 29, 2009, 02:11:56 PM
Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala is not going to work on the sheevaplug because as of Karmic, Ubuntu builds with ARMv6+VFP instructions(and as of 10.04 with ARMv7 instructions), which the ARMv5TE processor on the sheevaplug can't do.

The 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope version will get ONLY security updates by Ubuntu until 2011 or so However you won't get the latest updates/packages like you'll get with 9.10 and future releases.

A solution is switching to Debian or another distribution.

armv6 has some CPU instructions that armv5te can't do. And the sheevaplug doesn't have VFP.

Yes, definitely you're crazy. Definitely CS won't work, since its a closed-source game/server, unless you put qemu on the plug, and emulate either a windows or linux machine.

As for assaultcube, i don't know the game, but wikipedia says its opensource, so who knows, maybe it works.
6  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: SheevaPlug v2 - Hardware Requests on: May 21, 2009, 10:28:01 PM
I have a few requests.
If you browse through the specifications document on the CPU you see that there's a tun of features not being utilized.  I'd love to see the following:

Mbit ethernet port
SATA port
PCI-Express port

Having all of these features enabled would make, quite possibly, the greatest router ever.  The SATA port would allow an onboard hard drive (or SSD/CF card depending upon adapters), the PCI-E port would offer the perfect functionality for a wireless routing setup, and the additional Mbit ethernet interface would allow the thing to connect directly to the internet (acting as a hardware firewall).  If you consider the features are already embedded in the CPU, there's no reason not to use them.

Finally, I've got to say the addition of a displaylink chipset would be nice.  It would allow those of us who are noobs (sigh) to set the thing up with minimal difficulty, and offer stand alone functionality.

Okay, i've updated the installation initramfs so it contains mtd-utils and the kernel with the patch.

You forgot saveenv and reset.

I'll have a look at upgrading the kernel today.

Let's see...
-Open 3 terminals and make sure you are root on all three.
-load the modules and make sure you have /dev/ttyUSB0 and 1.
-On one terminal, run picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB1 (don't close the terminal, keep it running with the command)
-On another terminal, change the directory where the uboot file is, and run the openocd command. (don't close the terminal, keep it running with the command)
-On another terminal, execute the telnet thing, and run the sheevaplug_init, load_image, and resume commands
-Check what shows up on the picocom terminal.

Its normal.

Load both usbserial and the other one, then paste the dmesg log.
13  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Re: end_request: I/O error, dev mtdblock0, sector 0 on: May 15, 2009, 09:21:57 AM
Do this:
apt-get install picocom
picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB1

And then do the openocd command, then the nc command...and watch the terminal where you're running picocom

And why are you doing a reset?
After you do the resume, connect to the serial console.

Stupid download systems...

Okay, download from here with your browser:

And remember to extract it to /root, or wherever you're going to run openocd from.
