1  General Category / Success stories / Re: Wuala (free) online storage with plug on: July 10, 2011, 04:01:59 PM
I have extracted the java version as instructed but how do I actually run wuala?  I have tried:

./java -jar /root/wuala/loader3.jar
etc...

Any help very much appreciated.

Some more config details would really be appreciated!
3  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Stale NFS handler on: August 30, 2010, 07:11:03 AM
My plug is running ubuntu with the RF on an sd card.

I have a stale file handler error on /var/spool/nullmailer

Can I take the card out, put it in my laptop and delete the offending file that way?  Will that work?  Or should I put into laptop and run e2fsck?

Many thanks

Ok - great.  Thanks for the detailed assistance!

Learning already!  I thought I was booting from the sd card already - I guess I'm not then and just using the rootfs from the sd card!?

Debating when to make the change.  My plug lives in a cold cupboard on it's own!  I also don't want to be without it for long as it's my automated nzb reader too!

Cheers!

Mike,

Thanks for the help.

To be clear.  I already successfully boot from the sd card.  This was the line that made this start working:

bootargs_root=root=b301

What you are saying is:

Upgrade the kernal with the ./readme script.
(I assume with no flags set? or should this be with the --rootkernal option?)
Then to make the plug boot using the rootfs on the card (again) I should make the changes you suggest.

Sorry for asking for it to be A-B-C but have put quite a bit of time in getting plug set up and booting to sd card.  Just being cautious that I don't undo some of the hard work.

BTW want newer kernal to sort a webcam out and go for a zoneminder set up...

Cheers again!

Ok - I used the installer version 1 already and flashed with the kernal version that is downloaded with the installer (all the contents of the install directory - as instructed).

"From this point, you can then just download a kernel from sheeva-with-linux..."

So this means I can now just run the ./readme file?  As I have already upgraded the plug?

Will add when I get home from work.  (I assume I need a direct connection and can not do this with remote ssh login in).

Thanks!

By this do you mean printenv bootargs_root?  Or more?

Thanks
10  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Help before kernal upgrade on: November 29, 2009, 04:36:37 PM
So, I'm about to upgrade my kernal to the latest (31.6).

If I use the readme file method as stated in the wiki will this work as I boot from an sd card now?

I changed my bootargs_root to bootargs_root=root=b301.  This boots the plug from an sdcard containing the rootfs.

is the readme file the easiest approach for me?  Would appreciate some guidance before I proceed as am very new to linux and don't want to be left with a bricked new toy!  Would I just need to make the bootargs_root change again?  If I use the --rootkernal option will this achieve what I want to achieve?  Are there any extra steps I need to know about?

Many thanks!

Does anyone know how to install this on the plug? 

I cannot find any information how to install this without gnome.

Thanks!

Doesn't work for me...

FSTAB file:

Code:
# UNCONFIGURED FSTAB FOR BASE SYSTEM
//192.168.1.155/Volume_1/ /mnt/nas/ cifs username=*****,password=*****,auto,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
/dev/sda2 /mnt/usb auto users,uid=1000,gid=100,utf8,dmask=027,fmask=137 0 0

As instructed copied the script into a file called wait4usbdiscs chmod +x then ln -s ../init.d/wait4usbdisks /etc/rcS.d/S25wait4usbdisks.

My usb drive mounts fine when I run mount -a...  Any ideas?

Many thanks

I use it to cache web pages. 

Using polipo on my little nas box speeds up surfing, polipo on my plug sloooows down surfing.
If I symlink to my nas box from the plug will i gain the speed advantage to storing the web cache on fast access harddrives?  Is this how symlinks work?  Or will I still be constrained by the slower read/write speeds of the plug?
14  General Category / General Discussion / Polipo (proxy server) on: October 22, 2009, 03:06:55 PM
Got my plug working - upgraded using the sheevaplug installed.  Running rotfs from the internal storage.

Managed to install polipo (proxy server)  on the plug with no problems and got it working fine.  Problem is it's slow as a dog!  I am contrasting this with running polipo on my nas device (Dlink dns 323).  The specs of the 2 devices are poles apart.  The plug  is far more powerful so why does it serve the pages up so much slower?

Anyone any ideas?  Could this be because the file transfer speed is slow from the internal storage?  Would running the rootfs from a usb thumb drive sort the speed issue up?

Thoughts?

Thanks

All sorted now- I had the wrong files.  Everything worked ok after getting the correct files.  Thanks to those who helped.
