31  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Sheeva as a smal business/home server on: April 19, 2009, 02:46:13 AM
There's good instructions in the wiki about moving the root to SD. Mine FLIES on the SD, I have a 4GB class 6 SDHC card, don't know if that makes much of a difference, but much faster than NAND. And btw, I didn't have to recompile to use SAMBA, works with included image.

I've taken the easy way out. I have webmin installed, and used the gui there to set up an hourly time sync of the sofware and hardware clocks to ntp.ubuntu.com. Smiley

My hardware (and software) clock are resetting seemingly on every boot. I guess there's no battery to keep time when there's a loss of power? Anyway, I use webmin and it makes it really easy to set up time synchronization. It really messes with my blog posts though, since it puts them back in January 2009 :S

I'm using TorrentFlux, it's php based and I've got it using sqlite. It's kind of... cruddy though. I don't know, it keeps killing my torrents and stuff. I might check out transmission or deluge. Both sound pretty nice...

Edit: This link here is a discussion of deluge vs transmission...
35  General Category / General Discussion / ntpdate doesn't see servers on: April 17, 2009, 11:34:44 AM

I looked at the relevant article in the wiki, however it doesn't seem to be a problem with my nameserver (I can ping out just fine). The ntp servers are supposed to be listed in /etc/ntp.conf, however this file doesn't exist. What does exist is /etc/default/ntpdate. This file has its own list of ntp servers (one actually, ntp.ubuntu.com) that it is supposed to use if /etc/ntp.conf doesn't exist.

So, the command ntpdate just returns

root@debian:~# ntpdate
17 Apr 18:33:34 ntpdate[1732]: no servers can be used, exiting

whereas I can explicitly give the command a server and it works fine

root@debian:~# ntpdate ntp.ubuntu.com
17 Apr 18:34:14 ntpdate[1734]: adjust time server offset 0.018658 sec

Funny. Does anyone have this problem?
36  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Let's cut to the chase: does the SheevaPlug have bad flash memory? on: April 17, 2009, 11:30:29 AM
I haven't had any bad block errors. But I've started booting from SD and it is MUCH faster.
37  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: FUSE not found on: April 13, 2009, 07:24:05 PM
I've never tried just building one module without having support for it in the kernel.  Try it and see.

That's the problem! I can't compile it since I can't get the source from the repos. When I try to compile anything really, I can't because I don't have the kernel source or headers (I guess they're omitted to make it smaller).

Now I'm trying to compile my own kernel, however I am stuck at the "make tools" step in including the uBoot binary. Ahhh linux, every time I have another go at you you make me want to kill you.
38  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: FUSE not found on: April 13, 2009, 04:50:13 PM
You'll need to rebuild your kernel if you want FUSE.   

Wow, so no built in ntfs support at all? Can't I just compile a kernel module without recompiling the entire kernel?
39  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Included uImage too large to write to NAND on: April 13, 2009, 04:33:59 PM
A simple fix is to use the new uImage - uImage.SheevaPlug.040309 from the website.

I had the error w/ the original uImage, tried the new one, no error. Works like a charm.

You might want to look at this thread. I still haven't solved some issues but, the fuse one is easy.


I have installed ntfs-3g and I have no errors at all during the install.

When I try to mount with ntfs-3g I get this error:

root@debian:~# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first

modprobe fuse returns:

root@debian:~# modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.

41  Linux Stuff / Kernel / FUSE not found on: April 13, 2009, 03:03:32 PM
I need fuse for ntfs-3g support, however it's not there:

root@debian:/lib/modules/ modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
42  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Compiling Paragon NTFS Driver - errors on: April 13, 2009, 02:45:01 PM
Hello, I'm trying to compile the Paragon NTFS driver (said to have much better performance than ntfs-3g). I've installed gcc and make, and when I run the install script I have the error:

root@debian:/tmp# ./install.sh
-e Preparing to Install
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
-e Can't preparing driver configuration
exit: 15: Illegal number: -1

I did have some errors w/ no /bin/arch, but I found the solution here:

$ cd /bin; echo 'uname -m'> /bin/arch; chmod 755 /bin/arch

Also, it was apparent that my /lib/modules directory was empty, as was my /usr/src. So I downloaded the linux 2.6.22-18 kernel source from here. The problem is, I can't find the headers. I untar'd the source to /usr/src/source, and symlinked the source directory to /lib/modules/
ls -s /usr/src/source/ /lib/modules/

When I look at the config.log, something stands out:

configure:1716: gcc  -D__linux__ -D__KERNEL__ -I/lib/modules/ -include  -fno-builtin  conftest.c  >&5
cc1: error: -fno-builtin: No such file or directory

There's two '/' before the include subdirectory. I don't know if that's the problem, or if it's the problem of not having the headers, but it won't compile.

I have looked all day and I can't find the linux headers for this kernel and this architecture.

I'm a total newb when it comes to embedded computing, so any input would be appreciated!

I haven't had success mounting mmcblk0p1, however I did fdisk mmcblk0 and mounted it as ext3 using the command

mount -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0 /mnt/tmp
44  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: NFS Root Filesystem Not Working on: April 13, 2009, 11:54:25 AM
I had this same problem. I eventually figured it out on my own, but yes, untar your rootfsv1.0 or whatever to the directory you're mounting as nfs. Works a charm too, just make sure to use the nfs exports settings given you in the documentation.
