1  General Category / Success stories / Re: Transmission 1.80 released! Installed on my 9.04 plug on: January 23, 2010, 03:31:22 PM
heh.. Yeah, 1.80 worked great. Guess I'll go ahead and download 1.81 and compile that too. Smiley I wish I could get it to compile the GTK interface, after I do a ./configure it ends saying that the GTK interface won't be built. I usually just use the nice web interface, but I run a remote X session on my hackintosh, so I'd like to be able to have the GTK interface available.. Ahh well. Smiley

errr, looks like 1.81 was a no-go either, 1.82 is out now. Smiley haha.. Good stuff. Smiley

Very strange.. For some reason, it's complaining the files are dated in the future (just about an hour into the future to be exact) when I extract it, and I can't compile it for the same reason.. Ahh well, I'll just wait, I guess. Wink

That's funny, when I compiled the first time I forgot to add the --disable-gtk flag, and it compiled with gtk support. I'm not sure what was different in my configuration, I'm just running the stock 9.04 Ubuntu version with all the updates. I haven't messed with 1.81 or 1.82 and probably won't unless they add something I want or fix something I have problems with. Glad to hear 1.80 worked for you though.

It also looks like transmission dot net (a windows front end for transmission) has a beta with magnet link support as well. Cool cool

It looks like they just released 1.81 haha, one of the fixes is to the magnet link handling. I'm just excited I can get stuff off TPB now since they have trackerless torrents.

Hey! Transmisison 1.80 was just released and it has some cool improvements (magnet links, trackerless torrents [tpb], etc). I am running Ubuntu 9.04 which only has 1.51 in its repos so I decided to try compiling my first program on my plug and it worked great. Details on my blog post about it.

It's not libavcodec-unstripped-51 but libavcodec-unstripped-52.

the command

aptitude search libavcodec will show what's available.

Then use aptitude to install. It handles dependencies much better than apt-get. It uninstalled libavcodec52 and a couple more and installed the unstripped libraries. Hope this helps.

I love this installer! If you install using the mmc argument it will create a partition on the mmc. Updating the kernel is way easy this way. It should be better documented though.

I still can't figure out how to save it correctly. What I ended up doing was taking the .config file from the with-linux website for 2.6.31 and simply including the correct LUN line. Works perfectly. And I don't have to flash the damn nand anymore because of how awesome the 1.0 installer is!

I tried once more, extracting the installer.tar.gz archive to my USB stick from my Wubi Ubuntu Desktop (9.04) install (previously I used 8.04 Ubuntu Server in a VM) and I got no bad magic error during extract of the fs, and I have all my binaries. Lesson learned: don't use VM for serial/usb transfers.

Now I need to figure out how to get it to boot from the sd card --- we really need a good article on the wiki that explains how to do that after using the alpha6 installer.

I appreciate the replies so far, but I still can't figure this bastard out. I am considering sending it back, but I don't want to because when it works, I love my plug. Please give me any advice you think is pertinent.

I've never had much luck with timing critical serial and USB comms in a virtual machine..   Have you tried using a Ubuntu boot CD?   Or even better installing Ubuntu using Wubi  (Ubuntu on Windows, does not need partitioning)

I tried as you suggested and installed Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop using Wubi. It installed easily, and I ran the installer again. This time, NO keep_alive() errors. However, when I finally login I have the same problem - missing binaries. I did notice on the terminal when it was untarring the rootfs, it said bad magic (that's pretty much all it said actually). Might that have something to do with it?

can you try using different miniusb cable?

Thanks.

I tried again with a different cable, the same problem - missing binaries and tons of keep_alive() errors.

After logging in, these lines appear, showing that most binaries are missing:

-bash: groups: command not found
-bash: dircolors: command not found
-bash: mesg: command not found

My setup is this: I am running Ubungu 8.04 Server in the VMPlayer application. I connect the serial cable to my computer, and route it to the virtual machine. The vm does everything over the serial connection as I would expect it, so it seems to be working (but not well obviously). Is there something wrong in using the installer from a VM?

I've been having consistent problems with my install using the alpha-6 installer. Using the rootfs found in the installer archive, it installs OK but with LOTS of

Warn : keep_alive() was not invoked in the 100ms timelimit.

errors. When it's done, I get the correct prompt, however apt-get and other binaries are not available. I've reformatted the flash drive, I've re-extracted the archive, same results. When I used a newer kernel found on with-linux, I had init errors that I haven't written down.

Does anyone know what is up? This is getting very frustrating - when I use the USB recovery, my nand has bad CRC errors after about 2 reboots, so I'm trying to boot entirely off SD.

I'm also interested in this. Alternatively, if the plug can't encode mp3 in real time, can it at least transcode to wav in real time?

You won't see your Sheevaplug on any network map unless it's running Samba, and it won't by default. That's fine though. If you want to connect to it you can either connect via SSH (which, I don't think is installed by default), which is a way to dial in to your plug via your network connection.

If it's your first time though, you can use putty to go through the comport (mine is 4) with a speed of 115200. Press a key or something to get it to print something out to the console.

I'm connecting with putty via SSH or Serial from Windows 7, so vista 64 should work fine as well. The serial connection is FTDI I believe, and I am sure they have a vista 64 driver you can use.

Beyond that, I'm not really sure what your problem is.
15  General Category / General Discussion / Re: My plug stopped working! "Bad Data CRC" on: June 01, 2009, 08:35:28 AM
I re-flashed the kernel onto the NAND using the USB recovery package from marvel. I then changed the rootfs back to the SD card and everything worked for about 2 weeks.

Again, yesterday, I have the same exact error as before - bad crc when loading the kernel. I fixed it again using the USB recovery drive.


I really don't want to do this every 2 weeks. Does anyone have some helpful advice on what this might be? I am very noobly when it comes to NAND and pretty noobly with anything linux.
