    uboot snag

    Hopefully this is a quick one.. I have been following the "with registration" method for Dockstar but had a problem with the connection to Jeff.Doozan.com. See below;

    "
    This script will replace the bootloader on /dev/mtd0.

    This installer will only work on the following devices:
    Seagate GoFlex Net
    Seagate Dockstar
    Pogoplug v1
    Pogoplug Pink
    Do not run this installer on any other device.

    By typing ok, you agree to assume all liabilities and risks
    associated with running this installer.

    If you agree, type 'ok' and press ENTER to continue: ok
    # checking for /usr/sbin/nandwrite...

    # Installing /usr/sbin/nandwrite...
    Connecting to jeff.doozan.com (1.0.0.0:80)
    wget: cannot connect to remote host (1.0.0.0): Connection timed out
    Connecting to jeff.doozan.com (1.0.0.0:80)

    ## Could not install /usr/sbin/nandwrite from http://jeff.doozan.com/debian/uboot/nandwrite, exiting.
    -bash-3.2# "

    Could you advise what command to use next to get this back on the rails?

    (Just for a bit of background, I took "establish a connection to this by SSH via putty" to mean that this could be done wireless, should I have used a direct connection?)

    Apologies for interupting the main project!

    Please check your DNS resolution. Try to ping a website. Are your DHCP-Settings correct?

Instead I kept my Mini-ITX server going. Having recently bought a replacement power supply from NewIT and fitted it, I am now ready to take the plunge and switch to the plug.

    My question is: should I start from scratch and reinstall with the latest versions of everything or is what I set up before still a reasonable starting point? The login on the plug tells me this:

    Linux **** 2.6.30-2-kirkwood #1 Sun Sep 27 22:57:55 UTC 2009 armv5tel

    and the SBS version is:

    Version: 7.5.0 - r30464 @ Thu Apr 1 05:20:51 PDT 2010

    I'm not sure how this version of Debian relates to what is currently recommended. If it's OK maybe I could just update SBS?

    I'm feeling a bit out of touch so any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
    I recoomand you to wait for some days, because I'm just making and updated version for Sheeva. So long you should use the "old" version, which also runs nice!

    do you have by any chance something like a squeezeslave friendly transcoding script for non std sample rates that sometimes occurs with audiobooks (mp3) or radio streams (mp3/wma)

    thx

    ian
    I do have a custom-convert.conf that handles this on the server side but it's old and doesn't work with 7.5 or 7.6. I am planning to update it for the newer server versions, just haven't had a chance yet.

    Thanks for the reply Thomas. I have just pinged the Jeff Doozan site, seemed to work, plenty of packets received. Thing is the device had only just successfully connected minutes before during the first wget part of the new bootloader routine. I guess the network connection was lost in the middle of the process last night (I noticed the Squeezebox had to rebuffer at about the same moment). I definitely have a flaky ISP / DNS what ever it is, need to get round to doing something about it.

    I can't clearly answer your DHCP question, not sure how, but I can say that the IP address obtained for the Dockstar (198.162.1.8) did not include a device name (i.e. Laptop, Squeezebox etc), does that indicate a problem?

    Should I try to run the routine again and hope the connection holds out this time, if so could you help me out with the commands?

    Regards
    Tony

    SqueezePlug_VM

    Hi, i have tested the SqueezePlug_VM on VBox.I am following the instructions proceed from the wiki.I have a problem with the mount on the NAS.
    I have edit the file /etc/fstab
    # Setting from the SqueezePlug script starts here:
    192.168.0.199:/raid0/data/Mukke /mnt/nfs/music nfs defaults 0 0
    I can see the mounted directory on webmin and winscp, but on the squeezeboxserver webinterface i didn┤t see the directory.
    Therefore, no songs appear in the database from the squeezeboxserver.
    Please help me.

    If you use NFS please remember that you have to allow your squeezeplug to access your NAS. Are you sure you did that?

    hi

    I'm thinking of getting a tonido plug early next year and moving across my dockstar setup to it (simply because i have a good number of wma files/radio streams and playwma/mplayer uses quite a bit of memory) - combination of squeezeslave + sbs + mplayer uses the swap quite a bit and slows the experience

    As the tonido has 512MB compared to the dockstars 128MB this should speed things up nicely

    as the tonido as far as i can make out basically a dockstar with a real time clock and a bit more ram/nand (but only 1 usb port) am i right in thinking that i can just slip an unpowered usb hub in to it (with my dockstar squeezeplug os/swap 4gb usb drive/USB HD with media on it/usb sound card) and it will be good to go ?

    (n.b. on the tonido support website it states its a setup option to bypass the nand tonido os boot and boot from usb)

    rgds
