Re: [nslu2-linux] Re: NSLU2 vs WDTV Live vs Seagate FreeAgent Dockstar

 

The Pogoplug v2 is on sale in the US for $48 at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Pogoplug-POGO-E02-Multimedia-Sharing-Device/dp/B0033WSDR4/. Pretty sweet deal, and pretty nice machine (1 Ghz ARM processor, 256 MB of RAM, 128 MB Flash). Unfortunately, the open source developer community isn't nearly as strong as the NSLU community, but there is a way to use the NSLU optware packages. I have mt-daap, mediatomb, samba, lighttpd + PHP, msyql and a bunch of little PHP apps running on it using OpenPogo. Furthermore, the Cloud Engines company does a reasonable job of releasing new features with their proprietary software.


Enjoy,
Tim

Re: [nslu2-linux] ttyS0 settings

 

  Mike, thanks for reply.

It has nothing to do with Slug, it is rather limitation of my serial terminal.
When tested with PC, via putty, it shows the same behavior, works fine at lower speed but is erratic at 115.2k

I tested serial terminal with putty at 9600 and 19200 and it works fine.  Is there any way to change settings on ttyS0, in particular the speed from 115200 to 9600 bps?        
 Not recommended; it slows the boot down a lot.  Also, you can't change  the speed for the bootloader messages.  The way to do this is to change  it via the boot command line; easiest way to do that is to install a  custom (self-built) linux kernel, since there's no way to change the  boot command line that's stored in the bootloader.    
My hope was that there is an utility/command that can be used to set parameters (speed) of the serial port after the boot is completed.
So far I had no luck.
I have never built kernel before, but I guess there is the first time for everything.
Any pointers how to go about it?

Thanks,
Roman
I tried it with agetty by adding line to inittab: S0:23:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L ttyS0 9600 vt100  but could not get it work.  Any ideas?  Thanks Roman

[nslu2-linux] Problems with Free-radius [1 Attachment]

 
[Attachment(s) from Jonathan Black included below]

I've had a number of problems with Free-radius.

1) Make and openssl aren't listed as required. These must be installed
before the program will work.

2) The path to make and openssl had to be specified before
/opt/etc/raddb/certs/bootstrap and /opt/etc/raddb/certs/Makefile
worked properly

3) The default config for this program is all messed up. According to
free-radius documentation, simply adding a cleartext password to the
"users" file will enable EAP-MSCHAPv2. After spending an hour or so
playing with this and reading, I couldn't get it to work. I eventually
setup free-radius on a spare Debian installation --- Copied the
radiusd.conf from it and modified the paths and then EAP-MSCHAPv2
started working. I've attached my working config file (Nothing is
specific to my system). If someone could please make sure that it
makes it in an updated version of free-radius, that would be great.

4) The start up file is junk. It doesn't have any options and should
have at least start, stop, and restart. The start up file doesn't even
work out of the box ---- When it is run it complains that "no log file
is specified". Apparently when running radiusd, the -l flag with a
path to the log file needs to be set.

[nslu2-linux] Problems with installing iptables

 


when trying to install iptable on my slug...

I am using http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/EnableFirewall

and when I run this ipkg install kernel-module-ip-tables -force-depends

I get this error:

ipkg_download: ERROR: Command failed with return value 1: `wget --passive-ftp -q -P /tmp/ipkg-JpJQWk http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/modules/cross/ 6.8-beta/kernel-module-ip-tables_2.4.22.l2.3r63-r10_ixp4xxbe.ipk'
Failed to download kernel-module-ip-tables. Perhaps you need to run 'ipkg update '?

I ve ran everything possible update, upgrade, changed dnses etc...I think there is something wrong with the link when I try using a browser directly...is there a way I can
change the repository ipkg is using or get the file and install it locally?

[nslu2-linux] Re:upnp/dlna servers with Unslung

 

Hi,

My NSLU (266 MHz) runs TwonkyMedia without any problem. I have a TV with DNLA support (Philips 9604-series model) and 100 Mbps ethernet. 720p and lower-resolution videos run fine, there is only a slight delay when starting the video (a few seconds). There are no hickups once the video has started. I recently replaced my NSLU with a Synology DS209. There I have the same delay so it appears to be caused by the TV. 
For HD videos the NSLU or the 100Mpbs connection is too low; there are hickups while playing the video.

Besides Twonky my NLSU is also running Apache and Samba so I think it is safe to say the NSLU is powerfull enough to be used as a media server. 

Note that the latest versions of Twonky do not work on the NSLU anymore. I used a license key of a new version in combination with older software I downloaded somewhere else. Google around a bit. If you want to I can send you the urls of the sites I used to get it working.

When you are only interested in Audio; the mt-daapd server works fine on the NSLU also. I had it running in combination with a Pinnacle mediaplayer and that worked fine also. Advantage over Twonky; its free.'

Hope this helps.

Andreas

You will probably find several distro's (flavors) of Linux that will work fine for you. However, it would help if you gave some more specific info about your machine, RAM and such. And once it is determined which distro's you will be able to try you must either use a machine with an Internet connection and CD burner to make your disk or purchase one (very inexpensive) from one of the many companies that sell them.
