Thanks birdman... that solved the startup issue Smiley

I am trying to set up a nfs connection between my plug and a windows 7 machine but have failed miserably so far.

If I manage to set it up I will post it...

Regards,

Hi,

while trying to set up NFS i keep running into the following message:

Code:
* Not starting NFS kernel daemon: no support in current kernel.

any thoughts why it is not working Sad ?

Regards,

TJeh

P.S.: I am using the current 2.6.32.4 Smiley

Installed the new kernel just yesterday. It seems to be working fine.

Thanks Smiley

btw is the high speed mode for SD Cards deactivated within this build? I am just wondering because my SD 16 GB Class6 card really sucks at the writing speed... the cpu has to go to waiting state a lot of the time Sad

I guess your right... i will try to move to USB Storage hoping that this will solve my problem.

7  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / transmissionbt --> 99% wa on: October 12, 2009, 10:14:53 AM
Hi,

i have been running transmission bt 1.75 quite a while now. Everytime I start a new download the system becomes unresponsive. Using "top" I get the following...

Code:
top - 19:10:06 up 18 min,  1 users,  load average: 5.84, 4.67, 2.44

Is there any way of getting around the extremly high "%wa" ?! I am running Ubuntu from a sdhc card (16GB) (root and bootimage).

thanks for the update Smiley

it's running perfectly

Edit:

When trying to mount ntfs-3g partition from external harddrive within fstab during startup I get the following error:

Code:
usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using orion-ehci and address 2
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
 * Filesystem type 'fusectl' is not supported. Skipping mount.

I have to do a "mount -a" after login to get it to work Sad

Edit2:

ok its far too late for me Smiley I just added a rootdelay=10 to the uboot arguments and it works like a charm now.

you don't need gtk for webui... thats why I excluded it during build

@cbxbiker61
Thank you for the programm code. Executing it, verified that my swap is working.  Cheesy

Code:
Mem:    513752k total,   510520k used,     3232k free,       88k buffers
Swap:  1005528k total,   172208k used,   833320k free,     3584k cached

I was hoping to use the swap partition to extend the memory that transmissionbt can use. Especially when downloading new files, probably just before completion neither the webui nor the transmission-remote of the transmission-daemon is responding to queries. Looking at the plug's memory it showed that it was filled up whereas the cpu had only 15% load.

Does this indicate that I have a bad build of transmission 1.75?

Quote
It looks to me like you are filling your memory with cached data, and not program memory, so the kernel has no need to move anything to swap.

So basically the downloaded data is put into memory before writing it to the sd card? Is there a way of avoiding a situation as i described above?

Regards,

TJeh

well since i have no gtk installed on the plug, i wanted to make sure that it is excluded while building transmission.

@DamonHD
I have tried a swapfile as well on USB and SD... both did not work.

@restamp
the trouble is while running transmission-daemon my memory gets filled up  and the result is something like this:

Mem:    513752k total,   489272k used,    24480k free,     3716k buffers
Swap:  1005528k total,        0k used,  1005528k free,   431912k cached

Filename                                Type            Size    Used    Priority
/dev/mmcblk0p2                          partition       1005528 0       -1

even though I have a swap partiton assigned my plug does not use it Sad

15  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / swap on SD Card on: September 16, 2009, 10:50:32 AM
Hi am stuck getting my Plug to use a swap partition that is on my sd card. Kernel and rootfs is on partition 1.

Even stressing the Plug's memory with:
Code:
dd if=/dev/urandom bs=768304 of=/tmp/memtest count=1050
fills only the 512 Mbyte Ram an the swap is just ignored!

Here is my setup:
Code:
root@ubuntu:/# fdisk -l && free -t && swapon -s && cat /etc/fstab

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 16.0 GB, 16062087168 bytes
4 heads, 16 sectors/track, 490176 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 64 * 512 = 32768 bytes

# UNCONFIGURED FSTAB FOR BASE SYSTEM
/dev/mmcblk0p2 none swap sw 0 0

has anybody else come accross this?
