46  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Sabnzbd on Debian Squeeze on: June 28, 2011, 03:52:26 AM
Ah, as far any other n00b as I'm one. I added

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

to /etc/apt/sources.list

non-free for e.g. unrar and
contrib for e.g. SABnzbd

Hmm, was under the impression that if I did a standard install of Debian Squeeze I'd get (access) to all standard packages. But it looks like this isn't the case for the ARM version?!

Anyway: installed some packages manually and it's running (in brief mode - still SABnzbd in dev dir).

Only warning I have so far is about unrar. I used unrar-free as I could find any other, but SABnzbd complains, that this version is not recommended.

Hi, wanted to install Sabnzbd on my SheevaPlug running with Debian Squeeze.

As to http://wiki.sabnzbd.org/install-unix there should be an official package for Debian, but I can't find it.
Do I have to add a specific repository, or isn't it just available for ARM?

I ran into that issue as well some time, ago and deleting the file did solve the problem. However reading your post I think it's time for me to understand the following:

I understand while booting the "same/cloned" system in an indentical HW it would add an extra line for the new eth inf / MAC found.
But shouldn't it be labled eth0 as well! (as there's just one eth interface in the system)? Why is it getting a higher number?
Does the SheevaPlug's board design offer a potential second eth interface?

No chance :-) they did not got a x86 CPU.

or Itanium. Anyway - seems like MS is looking into the new options and markets these kind of low power systems can open for them: https://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2011/jan11/01-05socsupport.mspx

no, when I do a "ifconfig" it just gives me something like:
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host

          RX bytes:74919 (73.1 KiB)  TX bytes:74919 (73.1 KiB)
no eth0 nor eth1 nor ... have to look into this
52  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Is this a Symptom of a dying SD-Card? on: April 06, 2011, 04:15:38 AM
tried to fix/check my SD card this morning, but when putting it back into the SheevaPlug it didn't come up again. My first guess was that I screwed the FSs, but at a second glance it was "just", that the PSU failed (just flashing LEDs).

So I put it into my second spare Plug, which boots, but it came up without any ethernet interface (ifconfig just report a lo; guess I have to check the uboot settings).

Luckily I still had a spare GuruPlug PSU from a friend lying around, so I soldered it into the broken SheevaPlug, which then came up nicely.

So I still have to monitor if that SD issue was triggered by a "weak" PSU, or if the issue persists ...
53  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Is this a Sympton of a dying SD-Card? on: April 05, 2011, 03:10:14 AM
@ll, I have a SheevaPlug running Debian Squeeze from a 4GB SD card for some month, now.
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mmcblk0p2         3249716   1096520   1988144  36% /
tmpfs                   257788         0    257788   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                    254952        72    254880   1% /dev
tmpfs                   257788         0    257788   0% /dev/shm
/dev/mmcblk0p1           97979     24505     68256  27% /boot

Lately I have the issue that the plug gets unusable after performing e.g. an "apt-get update":
root@Share:~# apt-get update
Fetched 130 kB in 0s (174 kB/s)
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Unable to synchronize mmap - msync (5: Input/output error)
E: Failed to truncate file - ftruncate (30: Read-only file system)
E: Problem renaming the file /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin.L131U2 to /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin - rename (30: Read-only file system)
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
I even can't reboot it remotely any longer:
root@Share:~# reboot
-bash: /sbin/reboot: Input/output error
Only solution is to pull the power plug out of the socket and power cycling it.

Might this behavior be caused by the SD card dying. How can I check its health?
54  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Problems mounting WD My Book Essential 2Tb to SheevaPlug on: February 17, 2011, 06:00:13 AM
I tried to swap the USB-Hub with an ~ 1 m long USB extension cable, but without improving the situation. SheevaPlug still doesn't see the USB3.0 HDD.
Maybe I have to give it another try with an even longer one I have at home as well ...
55  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Does it include pingtoo's patches on: February 16, 2011, 02:11:02 AM
Hi leadog,

I believe I've found a fix for the USB boot failures [...] as well as a prebuilt flash image.

sorry for the naive question, however I guess the patches provided by pingtoo (see post http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=1134.msg7016#msg7016 and following) haven't been integrated into your u-boot image?!

Would you or sb else know, if your and pingtoo's (and maybe other fixes) were already merged into a "latest and greatest" image. (doubt I'd be experienced enough to build an image on my own (more likely bricking my plug ;-)))
56  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / USB 3.0 Issue on the SheevaPlug!? on: February 14, 2011, 08:34:36 AM
Similar issue here: just bought a 2TB CnMemory Spaceloop USB 3.0 HDD (Western Digital WD20EARS:http://www.storagereview.com/western_digital_caviar_green_2tb_review_wd20ears)

As "just" 5400 RPM hoped for a faster spin-up from power save mode as with my current Hitachi 7200 RPM drive. Cloning (rsync) the content both USB-drives connected via an USB-Hub to the SheevaPlug's USB-Port worked fine.

However why I tried to attach the 3.0 HDD directly to my SheevaPlug it's not recognized.

Same result with a friends SheevaPlug (he also bought that CnMemory). Though his GuruPlug "sees" it.

Seems I've to stick with an USB-Hub as "converter", now. :-(
57  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Sheevaplug as dvb-t recorder with mythtv on: February 11, 2011, 03:58:12 AM
Roughly off topic as I haven't used mythtv.

I succeded to compile and run HTS TVHeadend together with an USB-SVB-S2 TeVii card on my SheevaPlug (Debian Squeeze) streaming the content over the net to my XBMC (XBMC Live; ASRock ION330).
58  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Poll: What is the status of your SheevaPlug's Power Supply? on: January 03, 2011, 01:33:38 PM
Don't know if it was worth the effort rather buying a new one, but a colleague still had a PSU from which he cut the cables/connector from a GuruPlug. He built in a fan so he needed the space which was occupied but the plug's PSU and he replaced it with an external one.

Thus I had to unsolder the connectors off my broken one and solder them back to his PSU: and it works :-)))

At least it was some fun doing some crafting again ;-)
59  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Poll: What is the status of your SheevaPlug's Power Supply? on: January 02, 2011, 07:29:09 AM
PS: there's a BOM at http://www.openplug.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=fileinfo&id=82, however I'm not sure if it fits to my Plug as the BOM may be valid first the first HW revison, only? I have that bigger gap between the USB and Eth port (BTW: is that free space between those two ports an option to solder in an eSATA connector?  Cool)

And I just noticed that we can order spare PSUs at either Globalscale [1]  (or NewIT [2]). But isn't that a shame that we'd have to pay for it!!  Angry

Sounds a bit like the theme of the following (German) Limerick:

    Ein Uhrmacher aus Wesselburen
    verschenkte en gros seine Uhren.
    Er erntet den Lohn
    seiner Investition
    und lebt jetzt von Reparaturen !

However Globalscale didn't give their Plugs for free ...

Agree, I'd like to. Would you or sb else can tell me which are the problematic parts to replace?
At least the capacitor (1) looks a bit fried, but also that other part (2) also marked with a red rectangle in the attached jpg.
