@emstester, I'll be happy to walk you through the installation process. before we begin the installation I like to know the current state of your plug.

1. Which do you use linux/windows/mac as the host to connect to plug?
2. Do you have previous experience using network booting process?
3. post the path to where you install your sheevaplug-installer, so it is easier in conversation to understand each other.

Good luck Smiley
I'm guessing you mean me...?

1. I have been using a desktop with windows 7, but have a netbook with ubuntu 9.04 on it, but would really rather not install php on it.
2. I think? I connect the usb from the plug to the desktop and use Putty to connect over the com port. I'm pretty comfortable with that.
3. C:\Users\Shane\Desktop\sheeva\ is the main dir that includes /installer/ , /src/ , runme.exe  and so on

Thank you.

It took a few months to get mine from globalscale... good luck Tongue
4  General Category / General Discussion / I Can't Do This on: December 17, 2009, 07:18:36 PM
I've been attempting to... I guess... Update my U-Boot so that I can boot from a usb -> cd drive so that I can install a fresh copy of ubuntu server, but I can't comprehend the building uboot stuff, pushing over the connection, etc etc.

I also tried "sheevaplug installer", but didn't get past step 3 "Edit the ~/work/sheevaplug-installer/installer/uboot-custom.txt file to burn the correct MAC address according to the MAC address on the back of the Plug (change the ethaddr value)"

But that file doesn't exist in that path. And the readme was included in the same zip Sad



I'm down to the point where I want to just sell it or trash it, but I thought of something.  I'll pay someone to (a) help me get a fresh install of ubuntu on mine, (b) let me ship you mine and do it for me, or (c) create a tutorial, that is very clear to the noobies like me when it comes to this stuff, on how to do this.  I've tried following the articles on the wiki, the readmes, its just too technical.  I know linux basics, i'm a programmer, etc etc, but its still pretty crazy.

If anybody would like to give me a hand, please contact me. thanks!

6  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Cannot Boot from USB, or download Alpha-6 on: November 28, 2009, 11:13:46 PM
Well, I borked my linux install a bit ago so I plugged in a usb cd drive with the ubuntu server cd in it and i did the whole usb reset usbboot crap, but i couldnt get it to boot from either a cd drive, or a flash drive with ubuntu on it. So I looked up on here to see if the usb drives sometimes come broken, but I found that i should update to alpha-6.  I went to the wiki and went to download alpha-6, but i get an error when trying to download.

I have spent hours and hours just trying to figure all of this stuff out. I am really regretting getting the plug in the first place Tongue All I want is a simple lamp server Sad
7  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Lost Root Pass on: November 25, 2009, 10:25:35 PM
strange installation you have there. You could try again with init=/bin/bash but should be the same.
ahh thank you! That worked... but now im in and having the same issues as before :p

"passwd: Authentication token manipulation error"

every time i try to change the root pass, or the pass of any account. I even tried making a fresh acc.

I deleted /etc/shadow but don't understand the whole pwconvert thing

edit, i tried deleting /etc/shadow, then running passwd and changing my pass, with no luck, and i tried doing pwconv and then sync. blah!

any tips?
8  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Lost Root Pass on: November 24, 2009, 02:17:09 PM
and now you hit enter and will get a nice root@(none):/# commandprompt.
I tried hitting enter many times, each time i would get to that. it would just go to a new line and show nothign. i even tried simple commands like ls and cd / and nothing would happen.
9  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Lost Root Pass on: November 24, 2009, 10:00:23 AM
there has to be a blank not a comma before the init=/bin/sh
hmm thanks, now when i boot it just goes through like this and stops at t end

anybody have any ideas? :\
11  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Lost Root Pass on: November 21, 2009, 10:02:00 AM
Well I had everything set up fine, and I created a second user account (so I could use it instead of root) and it kept bugging on me when I would set the password (authentication token manipulation error) and then It seemed I had it down, so I logged out, and tried logging into it, didnt work, so i logged back in root then tried to change the pass from the default, to something else (was curious if any password changing worked) so I did.  I even wrote it down on paper, and double checked to make sure I typed it exactly right. Now, none of the passwords work, for either account.

So, I wanted to do recovery mode, but I have no idea how to get into grub recovery mode, beacause I never see the screen.

I am using putty over the usb cable to connect to it.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

edit: i tried loading a linux live cd in via the usb port and an external dvd drive, but it kept saying no boot device whenever i tried "usbboot" from the marvell menu. ahh!

oddd.. i just lost control of my plug too.  it always says incorrect username/password.  however... i'm pretty sure i'm using the right password.  actually the only way i can see it getting messed up is from someone else changing the password?  i don't think this is very likely. 

anyways, i also lost my root password somehow.  i had it changed to something else a while ago, and it stopped working a week or two ago.

ill try fixing it this way or maybe will just reformat everythign... we will see.

I was gong to attempt to put a fresh install of ubuntu server on it, but didnt think it would fit, also, it looked like it was very hard todo Tongue
12  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Lost Root Pass on: November 20, 2009, 09:46:57 AM
no grub on the plug Cheesy

connect with the serial console. start plug. stop at marvel boot prompt. check current content of bootargs (printenv). modify them to contain a init=/bin/sh (setenv bootargs ...). do _not_ save this environment. continue booting (bootm if i remember correctly). modify password. reboot.

If you have trouble, post the content of the u-boot environment.
Thanks! I tried that, but every time i try, it just finishes loading the kernal then nothing happens. Here is my printenv

is that what you mean by u-boot env?

also, when i do bootm, it says "bad magic number" Tongue
