It certainly boots now but it doesn't seem to be loading any modules.

I have found that some usb sticks work better than others for this. The Kingston DataTraveler G3 is the most reliable I have found.

my "hand" is not accurate enough to comment but I have tested power consumption and there is no difference on my power meter.

cpu frequency scaling - you can either manually or automatically change the cpu clock speed, this works!

Very nicely,  would be interesting to see how much cooler Dream and Sheeva run if anyone has a Temp sensor attached to a plug.

which version of uboot does the Dreamplug have?

No it does not use one.

I have compiled the sheeva.with-linux kernel 2.6.38.2 with MTD support unchecked and that boots fine on the Dreamplug.

So that confirms the theory that it's waiting for a Nand device that it hasn't got.

I am getting the same with the Ubuntu from the Download area.
I have the tried the Kernel & Modules that came with the prerelease plugs(Debian Lenny) loaded onto Ubuntu and they work fine.

Linux version 2.6.33.6 (root@localhost.localdomain) (gcc version 4.2.0 20070413 (prerelease) (CodeSourcery 2007q1-10. Marvell 2008q3-13 20081204)) #1 PREEMPT Sun Dec 5 22:56:10 CST 2010

Reflashing my box with stock Guruplug images is really what I'm trying to do - the OS images hosted with the installer don't work for me.

Hi Crunch,

Here is a howto guide for restoring the Guruplug with the Globalscale images

11  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Dreamplug repo different from shipping Dreamplug system on: March 17, 2011, 06:13:17 PM
I extracted the Dreamplug repository and found that etc/debian_version contains "5.0" but my Dreamplug shipped with "5.0.3"

The repository software seems different from what my Dreamplug shipped with.


If you look in /etc/apt/sources.list you will notice that it's Ubuntu and not Debian.

For anyone wishing to solve the Dreamplug boot issue with kernels .36 and .37 here are my observations.

During the Boot:

loop: module loaded

<--- This is the point it freezes.

NAND device: Manufacturer ID: 0xec, Chip ID: 0xdc (Samsung NAND 512MiB 3,3V 8-bit)
Scanning device for bad blocks

<--- And I assume it never gets here because it's expecting an onboard Nand to be present and waits until it's found.

Can anyone find code in the kernel that would cause this?

Fletch,

I believe Globalscales are currently working on it.

Hi bwooster0,

I noticed the same thing with the Dreamplug I tested. It does not allow the Kernel to be loaded from the SD card but it was quite easy to copy and rename the kernel from the SD onto the 1st partition of the microSD and leave the Rootfs on the SD card.

MicroSd boot
x_bootcmd_kernel=fatload usb 0 0x6400000 uImage
x_bootargs_root=root=/dev/sda2 rootdelay=35

SD card boot
x_bootcmd_kernel=fatload usb 0 0x6400000 uImageSD
x_bootargs_root=root=/dev/sdb2 rootdelay=35

I have a ready made kernel v2.6.36.2

or what you need to change to build your own if you wish.
