Hi All,

I just bricked my Guruplug and can consistently do so. :-)
Here the steps:
Take the latest uboot, kernel, rootfs from here http://www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/guru-plug/

Install it as stated here : http://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=417.0
What it says, load the 3 pieces into your nand

Start the plug.

Make sure to step down the network, at least mine needs this to not burn the house :-)
To do this I install ethtool and change my interfaces file.
I also remove the ifplugd pieces from my rc*.d directories

No I can reboot my plug and everything is fine.

If I now do

apt-get update
apt-get install build-essential

and I restart the plug, it gets stuck when it should load the console.

So I end up seeing that my network is connected with 100MBit and my time was updated from the ntpd but these messages are the last I get from the console (serial JTAG connection)

There is a message on the screen [warning] Files in /run will be invisible

In the logiles there is an additional message saying that /dev/console is not availabe.
It looks like /dev/console is just invisible for the bootprocess.

Any hint?

I'm kind of stuck as I don't know where to look next.
I would love to have my Guru running again, but somehow continuously brick it with the install of the build-essential

Thanks

Dietmar

Hi All,

even if I run a different plug now, I still would like to get my guru in a running state.
Anyone out there who had the same/similar issues? Or maybe a clue of what could be wrong?

Thanks
