16  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: sheeva/dream 3.6.6 new kernel available on: March 24, 2013, 07:54:16 PM
I just downloaded your 3.8.4 kernel, which behaves much better on the guruplug server plus with the SD8686 wireless. I can now load the libertas_sdio module without errors. Alas, this gives me client mode only.

Any chance you can enable the LIBERTAS_THINFIRM module in the next builds ? I think that with this module enable, we might be able (with the appropriate thin firmware, and hostapd) to use the SD8686 equipped machines as APs (how well, I cannot say, but it seems to work for the XO project)...

Thanks.

I've just made a 3.8.4 release 2 with LIBERTAS_THINFIRM module.  See if that works for you.

As far as I know the mwifiex driver is supposed to work with that hardware.  I personally don't have the hardware to test it though.  I'm limited to the original SheevaPlug.

I'll build a 3.7.x kernel when I get a chance.  Who knows maybe that will work.
19  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: sheeva/dream 3.6.6 new kernel available on: December 01, 2012, 01:40:47 AM
Maybe you haven't installed the firmware file?  This is from the README in the mwifiex kernel source directory.  If that doesn't do it you'll have to figure out who the maintainer is for mwifiex.

1) FOR DRIVER INSTALL

   a) Copy sd8787.bin to /lib/firmware/mrvl/ directory,
      create the directory if it doesn't exist.
   b) Install WLAN driver,
      insmod mwifiex.ko
   c) Uninstall WLAN driver,
      ifconfig mlanX down
      rmmod mwifiex

I've patched the mwifi driver in 3.6.8.  Give that a shot and report back.

3.6.6 is now available.

For everything besides Dreamplugs:
sudo ./README-PLUG-UPDATE.sh 3.6.6 --nandkernel (installs to nand)

sudo ./README-PLUG-UPDATE.sh 3.6.6 --rootkernel (installs to /boot)

For Dreamplugs:

I'm sure you may have noticed that i haven't been frequenting the forum as often.  Even though I'm not here too often that doesn't mean that I'm not updating kernels.  So I would recommend checking http://www.xilka.com/sheeva/ for the latest version when you decide that you want to update.  Just look in http://www.xilka.com/sheeva/3/3.6 (obviously 3.6 will increment as newer versions are released) for the latest supported version and then run the README-*sh script to pull down that version.

I've been busy with CuBox related items, kernel's of course and xbmc on CuBox.  I've also upgraded my main server from an AMD X6@3.4 to an FX-8350@4.7.  Let me tell you...the FX-8350@4.7 really flies for the type of work (X264 encoding and software compiles) that I do on it.

23  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: sheeva/dream 3.4.5 new kernel is available on: July 22, 2012, 07:20:33 PM
Actually, the other locations are not all OK.
Accessing the source directory results in a 502 Bad Gateway error.
And the release directory contains a directory called 2, which seems to have the cubox 3.4.5 files.

Navy...poor choice of colors.  I had to bring up the page source to read it.

Yes, I'm aware of the cubox/source directory issue.  I have to take the time to fix it.  My python server doesn't seem to like the number of files in that directory.  Anyway, that is cubox source, not sheevaplug.

And yes the cubox files are in a subdirectory 2 which is my new strategy for dealing with revisions.  The download scripts will automatically grab the latest revision.  It avoids the hassle of flushing web server caches.  I'll be changing the sheevaplug download scripts to use the same strategy as soon as I can find time.

Yeah, I need to figure out how to flush the cache-servers when I revision files.

In any case, 3.4.5 has just been release so use that.

27  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: howto sheeva-with-linux 3.4.2 and encrypted fs on: June 14, 2012, 08:04:21 PM
An encrypted root fs is prudent whenever the hardware is in a place where it may be stolen. The Guruplug handles an encrypted root fs just fine as long as I use the stock Debian kernel. But, I wanted to get the wifi working and the best way I know is the SwL kernel. So how do I get the SwL kernel to work with an encrypted root fs? The message, http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=6145.0, says 3.4.2 and 3.3.8 support dmcrypt.

Richard

No, an encrypted root has no significant advantage over an encrypted /home when you locate the files that need to be secure in you home tree.  The system will definitely be slower since it has to decrypt everything.

In any case I'll see if i can create an encrypted (non-root) partition on my sheevaplug when I get a chance.  I haven't tested that for quite some time.
28  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: howto sheeva-with-linux 3.4.2 and encrypted fs on: June 13, 2012, 04:44:23 PM
Sanity check... why do you want to encrypt the rootfs?  For a low-power device like a sheevaplug, it doesn't sound very practical (probably not too practical even on high-powered systems).

Why not run an un-encrypted root and mount an encrypted fs somewhere where it makes sense.
29  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: howto sheeva-with-linux 3.4.2 and encrypted fs on: June 12, 2012, 02:12:07 PM
Try 3.3.8.
