1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Recommendation for a RAID hardware enclosure? on: September 26, 2011, 02:44:56 PM
I have an original SHeevaPlug, which has worked wonderfully for several years, running off of a USB 2.0 hard drive.  Recently however, I've been worried about hosting so much of my data with a single point of failure, so I've been interested in getting a USB 2.0 raid enclosure.  Anyone have a good suggestion, or would I be better getting an actual NAS at that point?

Shipping was a little over 7 dollars if you were in the US.

They wanted to send a paypal payment request to the email address.  After I responded with a yes, an hour or two later I received a payment request from paypal.

Update: finally got an email from them with ordering instructions.

No reply for over a week. I think it might be time to consider the replacement power supplies a piece of false hope.

They said they were waiting on supplies from china to come in and then they would email me the info to get my power supply paid for and sent.

You could have your choice, either you could send the plug to them to repair, or they would send you the power supply. I chose to have it sent to me.  They are currently waiting for the shipment of power supplies to come in, and they anticipate sending them out in late April.

I just received an email from Global Scale saying they are going to offer people with busted power supplies that are out of warranty replacements for $10 + S&H.

Looks like someone figured this out already, but the information isn't on here.  Thanks to http://blog.bofh.it/debian/id_265

apt-get uboot-mkimage

For further clarification, it looks like vmlinuz and the initrd files are updated, but uImage and uInitrd are not. Are uImage and uInitrd generated on kernel install?  If so, how do I generate them?

I have Squeeze installed to a USB disk using the debian installer, and recently had a kernel update, unfortunately, even after removing the old kernel package, I am still showing the old kernel version as running.  Is there anyway to force those kernel update scripts to run on Squeeze?
