Re: who is using USB mass storage?

Thanks for your answer.
Maybe I should get myself a new stick as long as the old still works install new from scratch.

Re: who is using USB mass storage?

I try to built an internet radio using an nslu2 which is controlled by an arduino. Operation system as well as mpd/mpc are started from an USB stick. After a lot of reboots in the last weeks, the boot process tended to last longer and longer. dmesg occasionally talks about "successful recovery". So ...

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

At the moment I only have the followoing problem with the serial interface: Before I start the slug, I have to switch the wire from arduio's TX to slug' RX (the wire with the resistor) to gnd. Otherwise the slug does not boot. As soon as the slug is up and running, I remove it from gnd and connect i...

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

Hi, I just soldered the 10k resistor in the wire that goes from arduino's TX to slug's RX pin. A few days ago I found a solution that seems to work stable: When the slug enters runlevel 3, a script is started that loops until it gets a proper input from /dev/ttyS0. Then the loop exits and a script m...

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

First Success - Tuning works! With the help from the arduino forum I found out, that this character "ÿ" signals a reset on the arduino side's serial port. So the slug was sending data that made the arduino board interrupt the communication. As a first fix I just unpluged the wire that sends data fro...

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

Hello, so, Arduino arived today. I connected it to the serial port on the slug board. Between Arduino's TXT and Slug's RX I soldered a 10K resistor to take care of the voltage difference. On Arduino, I installed the following sketch, which sends the pot's position to the serial port: void setup() { ...

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

A good friend came over today for a late thanks giving dinner. After some drinks he soldered the tree pins for the serial port to the board.
First it did not start ... but then we pressed the battery in a little harder ... and now it plays music again.

Time for the arduino to come.

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

I dont think it is based on Debian, because on http://www.unslung.org you find a seperate distribution "DEBIAN/NSLU2". SlugOS is described here: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/SlugOS/HomePage The nslu2 isnt produced any more. Ebay-prices are quite high in Germany: a used slug still sells for about ...

Re: Any suggestions about using an NSLU2 instead?

Hello, I started my project using a nslu2 "slug" a view weeks ago. I installed SlugOS 5.3 beta on a 4 GB stick (excellent description on how to do that in unslung.org: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/SlugOS/InstallandTurnupABasicSlugOSSystem) Installed a Delock USB 7.1 sound adapter (12,- Euros) Mad...
