76  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Sheeva as a smal business/home server on: June 12, 2009, 03:04:07 PM
I'm using ext4.  You can mount ext2 and ext3 with ext4, but you have to specify it with the "-t ext4" switch as I don't have the others compiled...

I have my sheeva tethered to a UPS as an "uptime server."  I run a bunch of terminal windows through screen.  Everytime my laptop goes down from a dead battery or something, I just reattatch my windows and my desktop returns to where it was.

QOS enabled on your router?  What does the routing table look like?  Try a tracepath?

gcc-config -l

to list the gcc profiles...you may have to change your gcc to a profile that worked...

This install is good!  Makes a very nice complete system fast.  This is the best embedded device I have seen yet.

The only problem I had was following directions.  Must be my lack of sleep, but I was unclear at first that ./runme.sh was to be run on the installing computer and the install directory was the root of the USB drive to be installed on the Sheeva.

Got mine yesterday! I wasn't expecting it, since the Globalscale site says, "Not Yet Shippped."  I

I am impressed with the build quality.  Much nicer than other electronics from the local store.  And I forgot how much fun debian is.  Very fast for a little computer!

If these could be found on Ebay, $100 might be a bit low...

Wish list I'd pay 3x the money for...  I can dream:

A CPU with a FPU,
perhaps a FPGA,
a few analog IO ports to go with that FPGA,
and let's savagely violate the USB spec on output power with a full ampere of current.

Where on the site did you get to that screen ? I'd love to check my status too.

Ordered 4/10, processed 4/12, going somewhat nutso impatiently waiting.....

I've been thinking about this.

Curious what your 18 watt panel will put out during a dim, cloudy day.  That would give me an idea what size I should go with.

Free, great service, and supports Linux with great documentation:

87  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Re: Gentoo on the plug - nice home server finally finished on: April 20, 2009, 04:28:41 PM
Thanks for the writeup!  I'm waiting for my plug.

I run gentoo on an ARM9 embedded board and it runs nice, especially with distcc and a USB hard drive swap.  I tried flash swap for fun to see if I could destroy it, but it ran flawlessly for a few months (although very very slow.)  I'm thinking power supply noise might have something to do with the problems I'm reading.
88  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Let's cut to the chase: does the SheevaPlug have bad flash memory? on: April 16, 2009, 07:01:32 AM
If you have bad blocks and have access to an oscilloscope, check to make sure the power supply has absolutely no noise on the output.  A bad power supply can really cause a lot of random problems and memory errors.

I would pay more....  Maybe they should have sold these first batches on ebay.  Auction off the most they can make a week at a time until they get their suppliers worked out.  That way supply and demand will be exactly equal.

You may have to compile the kernel modules and insert them as you need.
