ports.ubuntu.com doesn't seem to be resolving correctly:

$ ping ports.ubuntu.com
PING ports.ubuntu.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.

Is this a different problem to the eSATA / mmc issue that I brought up a while back?

That's exactly what a dying power supply looks like.

Is there a way to make Debian automatically log on to an account?

1. Shouldn't the 2 addresses (tftp and go commands) be the same? (I tried to change them but without success)

serverip is the ip address of the tftp server
ipaddr is the ip address of the sheevaplug, for U-Boot to use whilst it is being a TFTP client.

Try fatload in place of ext2load

run fatload didn't work because fatload isn't an environment variable; it's a command.

Which rootfs, kernel and uboot does it ship with?  Any idea when the plugcomputer.org remository (or wherever) will have official images to reflash?  The pdf says both Ubuntu and Debian are supported, but it would be nice to have factory supplied images.

Here you go:

Ex-factory JFFS2 Sheevaplug environment variables are here

The device itself, 208g.

With packaging (JTAG, leads, box, Euro mains lead, etc) 620g.

Did you ever use openocd / installer prior to the current problem? If so, did you run the same commands as you are running now, and was it successful then?

If this is the first time you've tried running the installer, linux host seems to be preferred, but 64 bit hosts - either linux or Windows - might be the cause the errors you seem to be having.

Nice to hear from someone who's actually seen one.  Can you comment on a couple things?:

- It looks like the JTAG port has a uSD from factor.  How does this work?  Is it compatible with my guru JTAG box?  If so, how do I connect it?  Do I need a special cable?

You can use your Guruplug JTAG with a standard cable.

- I'm still skeptical about whether the Guruplug reliability problems were ever fully understood (and whether they were all thermal related).  Have you done any testing under high I/O loads?  I'm particularly interested in running with wifi in client mode with lots of wifi traffic.  Is the wifi chip the same as the Guruplug and if so, are the supplied drivers the same version or newer?


James has been playing with it, not me, and I believe that we don't have any specific tests for high loads. What I can tell you is that:

  • it does seem to have basically the same rootfs as the Guruplug (including the wireless stuff), but it most certainly doesn't overheat. (The power adapter is separated from the main board, in a moulding that can be joined on to the main unit). There's also good heat dissipation from the heatsink.
  • As far as I understand it, the rootfs is not necessarily finalised.

Note: also a newbie to WINE on any platform, so any warnings about gotcha's there would be  much appreciated.

Software that runs under WINE is able to do so because it is compiled for x86 and made to behave the same in a linux environment as it would under its original Windows environment.

The Sheevaplug uses an incompatible ARM processor.

Sounds just like a PSU problem.
14  General Category / General Discussion / Re: What is happening regarding the sale of Guruplug-ServerPLUS? on: January 03, 2011, 04:22:08 AM
They aren't backing away; the demand is such that there is a long lead time. Whether this is due to unexpectedly high demand, or planning problems preventing adequate stock levels in the first place, who knows ...

Edit: There's also a long lead time on ordering Sheevaplugs (in volume) at the moment.

There's nothing abnormal about bad eraseblocks; they aren't related to the problems you are reporting.
