have you tried http://www.plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=select&id=10   ?

Cross-compiling from Linux in a VM (i386 virtualbox) as per the wiki worked fine and fast for me. can't comment on Qemu, beyond it seeming to be non-trivial to set up.
18  General Category / General Discussion / Re: the contents of source.list in your sheeva plug on: December 07, 2009, 09:13:56 AM
the current package list for the installed OS is here: http://ports.ubuntu.com/dists/jaunty/main/binary-armel/Packages.gz
but you will need to parse that (eg in a text editor search for "Package: " )

You tried to download and install an intel x86 compatible package, the plug is an ARM processor, hence why you are having problems.

at present, the only libapache2-mod-* packages present are:
   Line 65839: Package: libapache2-mod-auth-kerb
   Line 65862: Package: libapache2-mod-auth-mysql
   Line 65883: Package: libapache2-mod-auth-pam
   Line 65905: Package: libapache2-mod-auth-pgsql
   Line 65927: Package: libapache2-mod-auth-plain
   Line 65949: Package: libapache2-mod-auth-sys-group
   Line 65972: Package: libapache2-mod-macro
   Line 65994: Package: libapache2-mod-perl2
   Line 66022: Package: libapache2-mod-perl2-dev
   Line 66049: Package: libapache2-mod-perl2-doc
   Line 66074: Package: libapache2-mod-php5
   Line 66112: Package: libapache2-mod-python
   Line 66141: Package: libapache2-mod-python-doc

so you either need to contact the package maintainer to port it for you, or find someone else, or have a go yourself, or find another distribution that may have that ported already.

have you tried sending a Private message to Rabeeh?
20  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Any directory of Plug-compatible software? on: December 07, 2009, 08:22:26 AM
you need to read up on ubuntu and debian repositories and packages, which is best done elsewhere, but an outdated list of what is available through those for the sheevaplug is here: http://computingplugs.com/files/pkglist.txt
21  General Category / General Discussion / Re: No terminal recognizes the Plug on: December 07, 2009, 07:09:00 AM
you have missed a step from the wiki:
1. Open up Device Manager, and locate the USB Serial Controller device, it should show 2 child nodes ("Port A" and "Port B"). Port A is the JTAG port, and you should leave this as-is. Port B is the serial port, which you can log on via a serial terminal 2. NOTE: by default Windows does not load the Virtual Comm Ports for these 2 ports.
2. Click on Port B, select Properties, and on one of the tabs, there should be an option "Load VCP". This tells Windows to actually assign your Sheevaplug a real com-port that Putty can talk to.
3. Unplug and replug the Sheeva USB, it should now download/install the Virtual Comm Port. Make a note of what port number it's assigned it (it is usually 1 more than the maximum number of com ports you have on your computer).

then retry the connection from your terminal program.

The terminal never gets beyond the "empty screen with insertion-block-character in the upper left corner" state.

1. have you tried hitting enter when it is in that state? (as when it is working correctly that is all that is needed for me)
2. do you have any error messages on connecting with terminal program?
3. have you verified your connection settings as being:
correct Com port: com 4 for me as pictured and circled in the attached image.
Speed: 115200 bits per second
Data bits: 8
Parity: None or N
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: None or N

Also, verify in device manager / hardware manager that you see the devices as per circled items in my screenshot attached, namely:
4. the two USB Serial converters
5. the USB Serial port

let's agree to use one thread: as per thread your second thread: http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=1057.msg6457#msg6457
24  General Category / General Discussion / Re: No terminal recognizes the Plug on: December 07, 2009, 05:50:46 AM
K, let's agree to just use this thread.

1. I notice from http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=2.msg6450#msg6450 that you are using a non-english version of XP, what version are you using? As both professional and Home should have a device manager.
2. We need to verify that the drivers installed correctly, and this is the best place to do so.
3. do you get an error message or can you elaborate on the behaviour you are seeing?
The problem occurs at Step 6. The terminal application (wether PuTTY, HyperTerminal or any other) never gets any response from the Plug; the connection is just dead.
i know when i first connected i didn't know i'd been successful until i hit enter to re-send the ubuntu login prompt.

Regards,
RuiDC

as per thread your second thread: http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=1057.msg6457#msg6457
Have you tried following http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/How-to_setup_PuTTY_for_the_SheevaPlug_on_Windows ?

On XP, what happens when you plug in the Sheevaplug?
does it detect new hardware?
...prompt for the driver?
what error message do you get when you select the files for the driver?
do you see the two new devices in device manager?

... this is your second thread on this issue, but...
have you tried following http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/How-to_setup_PuTTY_for_the_SheevaPlug_on_Windows ?

If so, at what stage do you get problems? what are the problems you get?
27  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Working Windows driver? on: December 07, 2009, 04:59:06 AM
Yeah, that's the one I'm trying to build - with little success.

A ready-made one would be nice.

I don't understand what you mean by "trying to build". I initially thought you meant compile, but the link provided to you by rooster above contains binary drivers rather than source, and worked for most people just fine in XP, so what do you mean?
28  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Anyone fancy writing a Wiki page on "Idiots guide to cross compiling kernels"? on: December 06, 2009, 02:23:40 PM
Sounds like you are volunteering... to get you started, see my post here: http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=761.0
last post in thread. It's for 2.6.30.4, so just change to your desired kernel version.

If you have any questions or problems come back here and anything you find clearer, amend the wiki!

There's a P4 patch, i haven't been game enough to try it. See thread: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-current/2009-November/013122.html
