The error messages came when I tried to install the applications with my MMC as root 8 G drive. I followed these instructions:http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=1642.msg10489#msg10489
1) My guruplug server plus recognizes the microSD as /dev/sdb, prepare microSD as:
press "o" / create a new partition table
press "n" / create a new partition
press "p" / it's a primary partition
press "1" / partition #1
press enter / default first cylinder
press enter / default last cylinder
press "a" / set the boot flag
press "1" / ... for partition #1
press "w" / save changes
#mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdb1
#mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdcard
2) copy files of Guruplug into microSD as:
#cp -axv / /mnt/sdcard
#cp -av /dev /mnt/sdcard
By about two steps, the bootable microSD is available
3) The next is how to boot the microSD, do
#ls -l /dev/sd*
brw-rw---- 1 root floppy 8, 0 2009-08-08 16:48 /dev/sda
brw-rw---- 1 root floppy 8, 16 2009-08-08 16:48 /dev/sdb
brw-rw---- 1 root floppy 8, 17 2009-08-08 16:48 /dev/sdb1
the major and minor device numbers for ‘/dev/sdb1′ which I put the rootfs on, are 8 and 17 respectively.
That number needs to be converted to hex, for entry in Uboot -- 8,17 in decimal converts to 8,11 in Hex,
for entry in Uboot this will be entered as ’0811′.
4) Reboot the GuruPlug and this time hit any key before the system boots into Debian. Once at the Marvell prompt type:
Marvell>> nand read.e 0x6400000 0x100000 0x400000
Marvell>> setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=0811 rootdelay=10
Marvell>> bootm 0x6400000
It seems application installs trough my MMC dont work. Anyone any ideas why?
This is how I got the the gui and vnc working. I installed these first in my NAND and then copied to my uSD.
aptitude install xfce4
aptitude install vnc-server
Thats it, open your remote software and contact your plug IP.
