I would like to suggest that you run that openocd again right after you see this problem. It usually can connect in the next try. It work for me

Hi All,

I compile the ftdi-eeprom and change the VID and PID. I got some interesting result. When I change the VID PID to 0403 6010, ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1 both show up.
When I change to 9e88 ad 9e8f, JTAG is ignored and only ttyUSB0 shows up.

Hi Patrick,

Everything work now Smiley
Thank you very much for your help.

Cool,

I will give it a try tonight.

Hi Patrick,

I am trying to compile 2.6.32 but my sata_mv never seem to load.  I have enable the following in the menuconfig

Device Driver->SCSI device support->
-*-  SCSI device support
<*> SCSI disk support

Device Driver-> Serial ATA (Prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental) driver ->
  • AHCI SATA support
  • ATA SFF support
<*> marvell SATA support

Did I miss anything

Hey guys,

I need couple of more Sheevaplug with eSATA, but I am too lazy to repeat the process. I think I will talk to Globalscale and get some units of Sheevaplug with eSATA port. It probably will be a little bit more expensive than their regular unit. Anyone interested, please send a message to me and I will give you feedback after I check with Globalscale.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your help. It is now working:

******************************************************************

It was tough to make sure all the component was solder onto the board correctly.

eSATA is great for HDD. The transfer rate is much better. On top of it, my USB port is free to do other stuff (Like power my 2.5" HDD)
I love it Smiley

If I put a DVB-T stick on the USB drive and hook up HDD through eSATA, I can turn this setup into a Slingbox+Recorder. The posibility is endless. : )

Hi Patrick,

I double checked my board.

C197 on the CPU side
C196, C78, C79 on the (K column) right above BIT7
BIT 7

C164, C188, C190, C189

Do I miss any components?

I am pretty sure that Open-RD uboot is working. I just can not get it pass the initialization.
If I pull out the eSATA cable, the prompt will immediately inform me that drive fail to initialize otherwise it will just wait for a long time before prompt return and inform me that drive fail to initialize.
I assume that uboot was waiting for some thing from the drive but never get it so it just time out.
Do you need to set any environment variable?

Best Regards
Paul Liu

Any idea? Do I need to recompile the uboot to enable eSATA? Any one has a patch?

If it is the wrong approach, should I go modify the CPU register value for eSATA?

If someone already know, I will really appreciate it if you can tell me.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Superpat,

Is this the Uboot that you use?

http://code.google.com/p/openrd/downloads/list

I think I have put on the component correct. I will change the Uboot and give it another try.

14  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: ntfs-3g 2009.2.1 write performance slow, is apt-get for ver 2009.3.8 availab on: November 26, 2009, 08:10:37 AM
I am not optimistic about the NTFS performance in Linux. It is running on user space so CPU load is very high. I have been testing it for a while then just gave it up.

If you want to share the USB HHD with Windows machine, you should use FAT32 but you will be limited to 4GB file size.

I end up choose Ext4. I am still looking for a good program that will let me read/write Ext4 HDD in Windows.
15  General Category / General Discussion / PlugComputer Esata port performance on: November 23, 2009, 10:45:32 AM
Hi Guys,

Has anyone tested the Esata port performance on the OpenRD board? I read it somewhere that data transfer is twice of USB under Samba.
I wonder if there is any difference between 3.5" and 2.5" drive.
