Navy...poor choice of colors.  I had to bring up the page source to read it.
Or you have a poor choice of background colours?

Yes, I'm aware of the cubox/source directory issue.
Not just that.  The download of the *-uImage files is also incredibly slow, and often times-out.  The same is now true for the 3.4.6 files, which have just shown up.

e.g. I downloaded sheeva-3.4.6-Modules.tar.gz in 7.4s, at 1.14MB/s

sheeva-3.4.6-uImage is crawling along, with frequent stops, and is expected to take > 10mins.  (That's if it doesn't timeout...)

Actually, the other locations are not all OK.
Accessing the source directory results in a 502 Bad Gateway error.
And the release directory contains a directory called 2, which seems to have the cubox 3.4.5 files.

There seems to be a problem at the xilka site.

Any attempt to download the 3.4.5.-uImage file is incredibly slow and eventually times out.
The other files seem to be fine, though, so it's not the network connexion to the site. It's almost as if it's been written to a bad-spot on the disk.

Is that the only file in /lib/firmware/rtlwifi?  There should be 4 rtl8192* files as well (and it should also have put RTL8192SU, RTL8192E and rtl_nic directories under /lib/firmware too).

However, the relevant thing is whether you end up with a wlan0 device.  I presume that ifconfig isn't showing anything (and that is what you mean when you say "but still no wlan of any flavor")?

What kernel are you using?  I have a dual-band Buffallo Wireless-N Nfiniti running on mine, and that needed a 3.x kernel to get it going (so I run the cbxbiker61 kernels).  That also needed a firmware file (rt2870.bin, but I had to get the one from the kernel git download last October to get that running).

So wlan0 is nowhere - don't know where to go from here?
You need to install the relevant firmware file.  Which (judging by what I have on my mandriva2011 system) will be:
   /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw.bin
Now, as to where you can get the firmware files - it's in the firmware-realtek package, so:
   apt-get install firmware-realtek
should get it.
If not, the actual deb file is at:
 ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-realtek_0.36_all.deb

I checked and found that there is no automount:
There is no automount.
But you do have a mechanism in place which is mounting devices as you plug them in.  This will be something to do with udev and/or hal.
37  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: howto sheeva-with-linux 3.4.2 and encrypted fs on: June 13, 2012, 11:29:34 AM
...
Unlocking the disk /dev/disk/by-uuid/c34f5d53-8365-469a-aeb0-eb840ac0cc56 (sda2_crypt)
Enter passphrase:
cryptsetup: sda2_crypt set up successfully
...
mount: mounting /dev/sda2 on /root failed: No such device
Wild guess here (since I've never used encrypted fs)
Should that root device be /dev/sda2_crypt, rather than /dev/sda2?

According to the Packages file for wheezy, initscripts breaks versions < 1:0.7.3-3.
But don't ask me for anything beyond that....
39  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: problems mounting external USB hard drives on: May 27, 2012, 04:17:09 PM
Hello,
I have a sheevaplug running Debian (2.6.32-5-kirkwood) on an SD card. Everything is running smoothly except that I cannot mount external USB drives.
So how long have you been in this state?
If it has just started, what did you do just before that?
40  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Debian Lenny unavailable on: April 05, 2012, 01:29:07 PM
squeeze is the stable version now.

This is from the README file at http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/dists/

stable, or squeeze         - the released Debian 6.0.4

 cron jobs and start-up scripts aren't going to show anything.  They are static scripts.

You need to look at the system log files - the things in /var/log, especially the messages file.

If there is a serious error on a file-system the OS will switch it to read-only to prevent any further damage.  So look for file-system errors on the relevant file-system or hardware errors on the device.
42  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Help from Marvell on: February 15, 2012, 02:04:01 PM
Thanks for the references, sorry to say they were not much help.
Really?
From what I could see the .ndo_set_multicast_list field was just renamed to .ndo_set_rx_mode. That seems to be all that the second link did.  The first link renamed the callback function too (but left the code within it the same).
Just a rename was all that was done here too.
43  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Help from Marvell on: February 14, 2012, 06:38:02 PM
Hmmm...something went weird when I put those two links in (looks like I quoted them when I shouldn't).
Trying again:

wctc4xxp: Replace 'ndo_set_multicast_list' with 'set_rx_mode'

and another one.
44  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Help from Marvell on: February 13, 2012, 04:16:47 PM
If it's any help, here's a github change that someone else has done as a result of it (I think...)

wctc4xxp: Replace 'ndo_set_multicast_list' with 'set_rx_mode'
and another one
45  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Real Time Clock dead? on: February 07, 2012, 02:09:55 PM
It's an AG10.  So I'll look for a local supplier tomorrow.
And then take another 4 days to install it.
But many thanks - the hardware clock is now working again!
PS: The battery size is also a 389 or SR54 (amongst many others, but the numbers seem to be the same - the packaging on mine says SR54, the battery itself says 389).
