After much screwing around all this afternoon i finally got the u-boot working (following site http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/SheevaPlug_Installer
) though a Linux host (my Windows host wasnt working of course).
Despite getting the dreaded errorSegmentation Fault
**** openocd FAILED
**** Is the mini USB cable connected?
**** Try powering down, then replugging the Sheevaplug
i did get the final message saying that the final sectors had been written before this came up.
After leaving it for a few minutes to let u-boot do its work I then was able to connect in via putty back on my windows host.
Upon logging in however i was met with some errors straight away in the console.
-bash: groups: command not found
-bash: dircolors: command not found
-bash: mesg: command not found
If i tried to run nano, or apt or vim or basically anything i was simply met with -bash: nano: command not found
or-bash: apt-get: command not found
etc etc etc.
its running version Linux ubuntu 126.96.36.199 #11 PREEMPT
Does anyone have any ideas how/why this stupid installer doesnt work work properly or why it would be missing critical parts? the network doesnt appear to connect eitherroot@ubuntu:~# ping localhost
connect: Network is unreachable
orroot@ubuntu:~# ifup lo
ifup: failed to open statefile /var/run/network/ifstate: No such file or directory
this is driving me crazy. I just need it to be able to do a clean install and it seems like im almost there!!!
