1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Change transmission download directory to USB stick? on: September 15, 2011, 05:40:09 PM
Thanks, you are spot on. Trouble is I didn't get what the uid and gid was? The only way I could work it out was to change the transmission user to ROOT. That way all the permissions are correct and at last it works.

No it is running as user 'transmission'

Just checked that and seems to be fine:

debian:~# mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/USBstick
debian:~# mount
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/USBstick type vfat (rw)

Files copy fine to the drive and there appear to be plenty of people using transmission to write to FAT32. Probably why I am so annoyed that I can't make it work.

I tried changing permissions on the download directory to 777 but made no difference.
The I noticed the original download directory is labelled drwsrwxrwx. I do not understand how to replicate this on the new directory. Something to do with the group it belongs to?
Why didn't I lsten n my computer studies lectures. The only command I ever remembered was ls -lasig ad at least I actually got to use that here even though I have no idea what it means.

Thanks for the sugestion but it turns out be that jaunty is no longer supported. I found the answer buried on the forum in another section.
Can someone make that an obvious sticky somewhere? Ever so hard to fnd up to date relevant information about different versions of the plug.
Anway debian lenny is now running like a charm.
6  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Change transmission download directory to USB stick? on: September 13, 2011, 04:44:19 PM
I have mounted a fat32 USB stick on my sheevaplug using:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick

when I change the transmission torrent download directory to /mnt/usbstick I get an access denied error.

I know virtually nothing about linux and don't understand why it will not write to it. Do I need a different path to that directory or change the read/write status?

I just want to be able to download files and then transfer the stick straight into a windows machine. Any help would be great?
7  General Category / General Discussion / apt-get update failing to find servers on: September 12, 2011, 03:43:13 AM
I have just manually updated uboot to 3.4.27 and a fresh install of Ubuntu9.04 using the EISA package on my original Sheeva plug.
Now when I connect and try to apt-get update I am getting the fail log below.
I have checked that it can see the internet and pings local and remote servers OK. I just looked at the ports.ubuntu.com file lists and now see the problem. There is no jaunty directory.
Clearly I am missing the point somewhere. Anyone help me out please?

Great thanks, how I didn't find that topic I don't know.

Looks like it is worth flashing a newer version of Uboot anyway, but when I get to the part below, should I be answering yes to reset the env parameters?

**Warning**
If U-Boot Endiannes is going to change (LE->BE or BE->LE),
Then Env parameters should be overridden..
Override Env parameters? (y/n) n

Make sure to answer "n" here.

I had Asterisk booting from SD card ages ago. Then the plug sat in a drawer for a while. Now the SD card is long gone and I have no idea how to return it to boot from the NAND so I can start playing again.
Is there an easy way to factory default it?
It is currently running

U-Boot 1.1.4 (Jul 19 2009 - 16:03:28) Marvell version: 3.4.19
10  General Category / General Discussion / 3G Modem Install on: October 18, 2009, 02:53:47 AM
I have a plug running linux version 2.6.30.2.
I want to get a ZTE MF627 3G modem working with it. When I install the 3G stick the CD-ROM device is recognised but that's where it ends. Has anyone got this working yet?
I see that it is possible in Ubuntu using the Network Manager0.7 but not sure how to translate the instructions to simple command line operations for the plug.
11  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Successful quick backup and update to a second SDCard with rsync on: October 17, 2009, 07:34:40 AM
Thanks, I just realised it needed to be a sector by sector image. Still popped up with a couple of errors but works a treat.
Now I actually have a backup I will try to get rysnc to send a backup over the network to a windows share if that is possible.
12  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Successful quick backup and update to a second SDCard with rsync on: October 17, 2009, 05:53:36 AM
Good idea  and as it happens I have Acronis and just gave it a try but the SD card isn't recognised by windows as it is ext3 format. What format do you use for SD and how do you get it to read on windows please?
13  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Successful quick backup and update to a second SDCard with rsync on: October 16, 2009, 04:34:15 PM
This sounds like just what I am trying to do. Could you please give me a little more info on setting up the second SD card in the USB adapter? I have the plug booting off an SD card at present but want to back it up before making big changes so I can easily go back one step. I'm afraid the fidk and mkfs mean very little to me. Thanks.
14  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Blank Console on: October 16, 2009, 04:04:29 PM
Yes I ran the Alpha6 install and so far no errors. Thanks.
15  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Blank Console on: October 15, 2009, 01:42:54 PM
boerner you are a genius. How I didn't find your post before I don't know. Anyway it works, albeit a few errors are thrown up. Hopefully if I re-install the errors will go away. The one that looks a bit nasty is:
debian login: JFFS2 notice: (657) check_node_data: wrong data CRC in data node at 0x1c7f0000: read 0x6aad2fa6, calculated 0xf22d86d0.

Looks like I'm not the only Sheeva owner getting that one. I don't suppose you saw something similar and have any ideas?
