I believe the x86 binaries don't work on ARM.  But a lot of the x86 programs have been ported over to ARM. Are you looking for something in particular ?

BJI,
    You should call  / visit Marvell and complain. I am sure they are aware of the situation, but it also helps to be reminded that there is a demand out there and it needs to be met. Let me know what you find, and we can start a new thread in the forums. You know never know.. we could get others in this group to call them and complain.

Got it working  Grin
Apparently there are two devices in /dev.  I  was using mmcblk0, but it's mmcbk0p1. Once I mounted that, it worked like a charm.

this is the command I used.

mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1  /mnt/SD

** created a mount point SD in the /mnt.

Ordered  May 25,  called twice to get the status. It was finally shipped on July 15, received on July 17.

PS: If you ever call them, just press 0 for the operator and she can check on your order status. Make sure you have your order number, which is listed on their site under your profile.

How do I mount the SD card ?   When I try to mount it, I get an error message asking to specify filesystem. When I do that, I get an error message saying invalid filesystem.

Here is some info about my card.
cat  /proc/partitions

Found it. Had to changed /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon to run as root.
Changed the line in there as
USER=root

I am sure I could also change the permissions on the USB share to allow the Transmission user to have write prev. Which do you think is the better way ?

Sorry about the rambling, I thought it would be good to document this so others may benefit.

Now I have another issue. My external USB drive needs some permissions corrected. Transmission can't seem to download files to it. ughhh!!!
How can I run transmission daemon as root ?
38  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: How do I install and configure Transmission on: July 17, 2009, 08:45:40 PM
Thank you !!!!  That did it. I could have swore that I had shutdown the daemon last night and changed the setting file but it kept getting overwritten when I restarted it.  Oh well.. glad that it's working now.  Cool

Is there a how-to showing how two install and configure Transmission (bittorrent) on Sheeva Plug (Ubuntu) ?

I was able to install transmission demon but I am unable to make any changes to the settings file. It keeps overwriting it as soon as I restart the demon.
