In FlashEraseAll() it looks for flash_eraseall and flash_erase.  Sounds like you don't have them installed. They are in the mtd-utils package.  I'll make the script check for those utils early and print an appropriate message in the future.

Installed those and it did its thing.

However, when I rebooted, uname -a says I am still on 2.6.32-5.

I am booting off a USB stick, and *should* be redirecting to the /boot dir on that stick.

In the /boot dir I see the uImage...and some other symlinks to the 2.6.32-5 kernel.

Here is the update process:

Trying to update the kernel, I get:

What am I missing?

OK, I have hooked up my old NSLU2's power supply, and the Plug lives!










Now, I suppose I just need to get some heat shrinktube, arrange and solder the conenctions, then use the shrinktube over the joints, and I should be OK to run this thing without causing a fire!

I started to re-install to the USB HDD last night and had some errors, but I'll probably start all over again and upgrade the uBoot and then kernel.

As luck would have it, it looks like the power supply of my old NSLU2 is 5V @ 2A.    I guess I'll try that.
5  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Is my sheevaplug dead ??? on: March 04, 2010, 04:31:20 AM
Before I shell out $15, is there any way to safely test this?  What if I cut the connection from the power supply to the molex (?) connector on the inside, then take a regular USB cable and cut the B end off, and wire up just the +5 and GND to the correct wires on the sheeva end, and then plug that into the sheeva mb?  If I then plug the A end into my computer, I assume that +5 volts will be sent out, and that the sheeva will only draw the 2 amps it needs, and it should power on?  I guess I want to confirm that the power supply is the only thing that dies, and not the motherboard.

If that all works, then I can get the Gigaware device.
6  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: SheevaPlug USB Power Supply problems. Can it Drive a USB Ext Disk? on: February 25, 2010, 01:33:01 PM
If your power supply dies, would it be possible to power the plug off a USB wall wart?  It looks like the power supply drops the house 110v down to +5v, .5a, right?

I was thinking you could strip the wires on a usb and the wires from the connect point on the Plug board and solder them together....Huh

Wishful thinking?

7  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Is my sheevaplug dead ??? on: February 25, 2010, 01:26:12 PM
OK, since Global is not going to replace my unit, I took mine apart.  There is a burning smell, and the same cap in the photo that dotEvan posted is bulging on mine.  I haven't hooked it up to a multimeter yet.

I noticed that next to where the power cable plugs into the board, there's a "+5", which I assume is 5 volts.  Is there any way to jury rig this to run off a USB connection?

Well, I am almost in the same boat.

Last week, my USB HDD stopped working, making clicking noises.  I RMA'd the drive, and yesterday I was all ready to rebuild my plug.  When I got home, however, the plug was off.  Now it will not power on.  Tried the normal multiple known-working outlets, the power cord vs the spade adapter.  I submitted an RMA to Globalscale, but they told me the warranty is only for 30 days!  How the f**k did I miss this info?   A device that sells for over $100, and they only stand by their product for 30 days?  I'm going to guess the Sheeva killed the USB drive with power fluctuations or something like that.

While I await to see if they make any exceptions, I am not going to open the device up, as this would ruin any chance of help from GST.

I am very sad.  I loved my plug, and it looks like if I have to buy a replacement, I still have to deal with a craptastic 30 day warranty.

Thoughts?

Any idea when an 1.82 package will be built?  I could download and compile it myself, but I'm lazy ;-).  apt-get install transmission is SO much easier.

All,

I'm following the directions on http://computingplugs.com/index.php/Installing_X11#VNC_and_IceWM to fix the bugs with the terminal sessions not showing up.  I downloaded and compiled a new libXt and created new symbolic links:

root@sheeva:/tmp# cd /usr/lib
root@sheeva:/usr/lib# ls -al libXt*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  441760 Apr 11  2009 libXt.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      14 Nov 18 09:41 libXt.so -> libXt.so.6.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      14 Nov 18 09:41 libXt.so.6 -> libXt.so.6.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1595086 Nov 18 09:37 libXt.so.6.0.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   19918 Mar 27  2009 libXtst.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      16 Nov 18 08:08 libXtst.so -> libXtst.so.6.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      16 Oct 29 13:49 libXtst.so.6 -> libXtst.so.6.1.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   21992 Mar 27  2009 libXtst.so.6.1.0


I rebooted and it still is not showing up properly.  Also, nothing placed on my desktop shows up either.

Any ideas?
11  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / OpenSolaris? on: September 18, 2009, 11:58:09 AM
Anybody try and install OpenSolaris on the plug?

There are compiling for ARM instructions here:

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/osarm/200805/installation/.

I am really most interested in employing the ZFS file system on the Sheeva.
12  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Transmissionbt on: September 18, 2009, 07:13:18 AM
I did install the trans-daemon.

Can you use the web interface w/o the gtk?

*shrug*

Works great as is.
13  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Which USB hard drive would you recommend for a 24/7 server? on: September 18, 2009, 07:12:06 AM
Is there a Vmware workstation image I can use of the sheeva?
14  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Which USB hard drive would you recommend for a 24/7 server? on: September 17, 2009, 07:47:11 AM
++ to the WDC Passport.   My 160 Gig model is donig just fine.

As an aside...when I upgrade to the 500G model, I don't want to re-install everythng again.   Do you think I would be able to clone one drive to another using Acronis and have it work?
15  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Transmissionbt on: September 17, 2009, 07:36:54 AM
Well, I do have gtk.     Smiley

Everything went great and it's working like a charm!
