1  General Category / General Discussion / A Problem -> And installing Java? on: February 06, 2010, 11:09:56 AM
I have a problem getting lighttpd to install! It says unable to bind to port 80 as it is already in use, when I know it is not.
I have tried everything, from rebooting...I even killed the apache service.

I could not get apache to completly remove by doing apt-get remove apache2, is there something I did wrong there?

Also, how do I get java installed? I cant find it anywhere on the wiki or in these forums. I would like to be able to run java apps as I have a few plans with this thing!


Thanks

Tried with a 3rd usb...worked perfectly

Currently installing to my SD Cheesy

The setenv command is for u-boot.  You probably ran it in the preinstalled Linux system.  Type "reboot" and when the machine restarts it will be in u-boot, you can press a key to interrupt the boot process and then type setenv and other u-boot commands.


I got it working, tryign to upgrade my uboot I am having problems

When i try to upgrade it with a USB, I get this error:
Invalid Fat Entry 4096 bytes read"
when i try fatload usb 0:1 0x0800000 uboot.bin

I aso tried with TFTP and still no luck

And with a different usb stick, that one just hung after i did usb start, trying to find it


Any ideas? I even tried the Sheevainstaller and that did not work either!

6  General Category / General Discussion / PHPMotion? on: September 22, 2009, 12:23:16 PM
PHPMotion from http://PHPMotion.com is a free Youtube clone.

I want to run this on my sheevaplug as a local media server type thing. (Unless anybody has any better suggestions?)

Has anybody successfully installed this?

It requires some things installed, as found here:http://www.eukhost.com/forums/f15/how-install-ffmpeg-ffmpeg-php-mplayer-mencoder-flv2tool-lame-mp3-encoder-4893/ But it errored for me when it tried to do the installations.

It is...

A Linux debian 2.6.22.18 kernel, running with a Ubuntu (it really doesn't say Ubunto, does it?) root filesystem, on an armv5tejl processor.  Hmm, mine says armv5tel... wonder what the difference is.

Yeah mine says Ubuntu in phpsysinfo and Debian if i do the command

So do I have to upgrade to the ubuntu thing like the link you showed me? Or do I already have it? phpsysinfo says I have Ubuntu 9.04

Well does anybody know?
9  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: A few problems on: July 24, 2009, 08:57:11 AM
Ok this is weird

If i do the uname -a command i get this:
Linux debian 2.6.22.18 #1 Thu Mar 19 14:46:22 IST 2009 armv5tejl GNU/Linux

If i take a look at phpsysinfo it says:
Ubunto 9.04


So which one is it? lol

I doubt the lack of access to the crypto engine will affect many people.  It might be significant if you intend to run encrypted disks.  Earlier, I compiled the following list of apps that *might* benefit from the engine:

+ dm_crypt
+ openssh
+ openssl
+ apache (via openssl?)
+ loopback devices
+ rsync
+ IPsec
+ /dev/crypto

I'm not even sure which of these are tied to hardware encryption under the default load.  In any event, for most folks it is probably not an important criteria.  But, hey, the hardware is there, so I'd personally like to take advantage of it.  (But, not enough to keep me from moving to Ubuntu!)

YMMV

Okay well I dont really need any type of encryption

I will move over to Ubuntu once I get my SD card, I currently only have mac and windows but I can just emulate linux to get the thing installed. Is there a specific distro build of ubuntu i need to run oin the plug? Or will any one do? (So can I download one to emulate to get it installed, while installing the same one? ...kk nvm as I type this I know there is a different one...)

So can you point me in the right direction to getting the corrent ubuntu build I would need to install on the plug?

And which distro of linux should i run on my virtual machine to install it? Like, which one would be the smallest download for my needs?



Also, do you know how I can get the password for mysql? After I installed it, it gave me no way to choose my password or anything and none of the defaults work.


Thanks again

Okay so I FINALLY got my sheevaplug after about 4 months, paid express shipping and everything, and had to pay a $25 duty fee at the door :/
Congrats, hope you enjoy it!

Okay so it has Debian linux, should I upgrade to ubuntu? If so, is there a step by step tutorial anywhere as I can not find one
My personal opinion:  The Ubuntu branch works better.  Example:  Ubuntu recognizes every USB device I've tried attaching.  The Debian default load didn't.  One area where the default load is superior:  It makes use of the Marvell chip's hardware crypto engine, something that hasn't made it into the Ubuntu release yet.

My advice on upgrading:  Use the latest copy of Rabeeh's installer program.  You can find more information here.

Currently I am running it all off the internal flash, but I plan on getting a SD and external harddrive soon
I think you'll find either is a faster solution than the internal NAND memory.  And, they are replaceable:  On my system, I find that even when it is quiescent, it is averaging a write to the root FS every 45 seconds or so.  So, by using an SDcard or USB device as your root FS, you are saving a fair amount of wear-and-tear on the non-user-replaceable NAND.

Good luck!

What good is this Crypto engine?
If it dosnt seem like something I need, I will go ahead and install ubuntu right away!

Thanks.

I was told to install lighttpd, so i tried to remove apache2, but it seems to stay, so whatever i stopped the service and installed lighttpd, php5, mysql-server, mysql-client

I can access the main index.html page (the one that says it works) but if i try to access ANY other file it says 403 - foribben...i just cant figure it out why, i even tried giving the entire folder 777 permissions...nothing

I also tried installing phpmyadmin, it installs fine...but how do i access it? I remember for my old windows server runing apache it was just http://HOST/phpmyadmin, but it dosnt seem to be the same on this thing

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

EDIT: Okay, I got lighttpd to finally work with php and phpsysinfo is running fine (but VERY slow to load, i guess its because it loads all that javascript to switch templates on the fly, i should modify it to load only one)...still cant figure out how to get phpmyadmin to work!

EDIT: Okay I got phpmyadmin to work! Just had to add:
alias.url = ( /phpmyadmin/ => /usr/share/phpmyadmin/)
Into my lighttpd config

But Where can i find the mysql password? I tried all the possible defaults...nothing
