Yes "Illegal Instruction" means your cpu isn't supported.

I couldn't tell you what to do in debian as I use armedslack on my sheeva/guru/dockstar plugs.

 http://www.armedslack.org/

If you are interested, these are armedslack (Slackware for ARM) installation instructions which may or may not  help with your current situation or help consider switching.

Try seting the env parameters back to what your documentation says.

I have the android utility "adb" ported to armv5te (sheeva/guru).
I compiled it on a guruplug running the armedslack.

Binaries for adb and acp (utility like rcp or scp) can be found here
http://juanisan.homeip.net/guruplug/android/

I just put them in /usr/local/bin ...
Enjoy.

I'll have to try compiling transmission.

I got rtorrent compiled  after my last post and it has worked flawlessly!
I like it.

This gets me thinking....

Can you run Doom over a telnet/rlogin/ssh session?

I did this locally for Unreal Tournament  Grin  But never remote... on a plug....

I never heard of rtorrent.  I use Slackware (armedslack) mainly on my GuruPlug and KTorrent in a full KDE environment over X to my main Linux PC (Slackware) on another X console.  I am trying  rtorrent because of its slimness tonight and your post.  I always loved character based apps more.  Got it compiled and using it for normal TV episode downloads presently. When I get to larger stuff. I will let you know if it fails on larger stuff as it happens.

That is strange.  I have had to boot my guruplug many times for months until updating to a recent kernel with my modified UAP  drivers due to NFS lockup issues.  NFS would hang on me more than once a week while constantly using ktorrent over NFS to my main PC terrabyte drives.

I had to reboot frequently.

I use the same uboot to boot off the micro SD card.

Now with the new kernel and slackware-current, I have never had to reboot in the last month.

This is the most stable I have ever had this plug and I use it daily.

At first I was using a USB drive, a mobilemate SD card reader to a 4 GB SD card.

Now I am booting off the micro SD card slot with a uboot I compiled with a patch to allow this with 8GB to play with.

You could set this up as a separate network and masquerade like I do in Slackware on the GuruPlug.  My bootup examples are at

http://mrlinux.homelinux.com/guruplug/etc/rc.d/rc.uap

I just add an iptables to masquerade the UAP network to the eth internet connected network like I have in this script.

Or you could add bridging like you need to do if you use qemu on a TUN/TAP interface and want full access to a live network.  I cant link the full script.  Hope this helps get you started.  Just replace the TAP device with UAP and they get bridged.

Code:
  # First take interface down, then bring it up with IP 0.0.0.0
  /sbin/ifconfig $ETH down
  /sbin/ifconfig $ETH 0.0.0.0 promisc up

  # Bring up the tap device (name specified as first argument, by QEMU)
  /usr/sbin/openvpn --mktun --dev $TAP
  /sbin/ifconfig $TAP 0.0.0.0 promisc up

  # create the bridge between eth0 and the tap device
  /sbin/brctl addbr $BRIDGE
  /sbin/brctl addif $BRIDGE $ETH
  /sbin/brctl addif $BRIDGE $TAP
  # only a single bridge so loops are not possible, turn off spanning tree proto
col
  /sbin/brctl stp $BRIDGE off

  # Bring up the bridge with ETHIP and add the default route
  /sbin/ifconfig br0 $ETHIP netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast $ETHBC
  [ -n "$GATEWAY" ] && /sbin/route add default gw $GATEWAY
}

I patched it and it seems to detect the 8GB micro SD card.  I have a usb->SD dongle on the system as well with 4GB which would be the MobileMate.

My u-boot.kwb with the patch file from that link that I used is at
http://juanisan.homeip.net/guruplug

Will try to boot from micro SD.

Heh!!!  I WAS BOOTING FROM THE MICRO SD AFTERALL!  I was loading the kernel and uimage (Slackware 13.1) from usb 1:1.  I never changed my environment and I thought I was booting from the USB dongle when in reality I was booting from the micro USB card which had a copy of the /boot FAT partition which got remapped after the patch and the USB stick got bumped to slot #2.  Damn this works!

I want these sources as well.  I am trying to use Slackware on the GuruPlug and just hit this road block.  I copied the binary from the debian but that's kinda cheesy.

I have had problems with the original Sheeva plug ethernet port in a NAT setup.  These USB/Ethernet adapters saved my patootey.  The original adapters gave me many kernel errors.  These adapters saved me big time.
14  General Category / General Discussion / Re: New Device Issues on: May 20, 2010, 10:13:05 PM
I would beg to differ.  It has nothing to do with wireless BUT fully the built in ethernet ports.  I tried switching to eth1 with the same results.

I plugged in a USB/Ethernet ASIX adapter that I used with a project on the original Sheeva plug since it only had one port and I required 2 for a NAT setup.  I have my Android phone running thru the wireless out to the internet now with NO issues.  eth2 (ASIX) adapter is running just fine now.  Bypassing the onboard ethernet ports has done the trick.  I had to modify the DHCPD conf files and the startup script in the root directory to match my network settings, but this is very cool now.  I wish I didnt have to plug in external stuff to make this work though.

I want them to fix the onboard stuff certainly, but I can hobble on this setup for a while.

I am TRYING to install Slackware onto a USB drive on this thing but am having some issues with booting via TFTP/NFS to yet resolve.  I am wondering if different ethernet drivers would do the trick.

Thanks for this info.  Just got my "GuruPlug Server - PLUS" powered up after plugging everything in and couldnt understand why I couldnt access the plug until I plugged in the serial console.  Reboot... Reboot... Reboot...  Ugh...   And this sucker is HOT!  I can smell heated plastic.

Unplugged the ethernet and now it stays up.

Up for a few minutes...  Just plugged in the ethernet... BAM!  Reboot.
