Re: music apps

It's taken me a while do define what I wanted my plug to do. This is my system. Samba for shared data. Transimission for torrents. Twonky for dnla. I like twonky, but minidnla also makes a good media server. The dnla servers provide video, pictures, and music to my Sony tv and android tablets. You c...

Re: how to boot from a usb drive w/ an internal SATA disk on

Discovered that after building the tp2 kernel the wifi was disabled. Didn't have luck finding wifi driver to compile. So used one that was loaded from root.tar.gz to solve the problem. Here is the procedure. The procedure assumes the tp2 is running on the drive with the rebuilt kernel and logged in ...

howto install usb audio outpug on tonido2plug

Getting the tp2 audio enable is relatively easy if you can compile a kernel. Getting the usb-audio to play cleanly is more difficult. I'm currently play Christmas music on the tp2 using mpg123. It sounds good so maybe I've got right. I can understand using mpd with the tp2 audio, but I don't underst...

How to build a tonidoplug2 kernel

This is a step by step procedure to build the original kernel that comes with your tp2. All responsibility is yours. The software built here is to replace the kernel and modules on an existing operational sata or usb disk. The purpose is to assure yourself that you can build a functional kernel. I h...

Re: rebuilding tonidoplug2 kernel31

Thanks. I've got all that I need for now. I should finish this audio stuff this week. Of course, now I thinking of motion detect and video storage. :shock: This little device is amazing. I really have hit it with heavy work loads and it just keeps ticking. Measured the power it consumes, amazing.

tp2 usbsound working!

Compiled the kernel and tested it without modification. That worked, so added the alsa audio-usb driver and compiled and loaded the audio enabled kernel. It works. Loaded asound2, alsa-lib, alsa-utils, and mpg123. Playing it via SB 24 Live and listening to Dave Koz Friends Christmas as I type. Sound...

Re: rebuilding tonidoplug2 kernel31

Success!!! Download mkimage from debian repository. Move uImage to the tp2 disk and reboot. Everything up and running on the new kernel. I going to play with it for awhile then I'll post a howto. HooRay!

Re: rebuilding tonidoplug2 kernel31

I know that I'm presently talking to myself, but here is the next question.

'make uImage' reports the error:

"mkimage" command not found - U-Boot images will not be built
Image arch/arm/boot/uImage is ready

How do I do mkimage. I'm a linux desktop guy, uboot is new to me.

Re: rebuilding tonidoplug2 kernel31

I got a good build using Marvell's toolchain and the mv88f6281_gw_defconfig. This is the sequence: (path to toolchain set, CROSS_COMPILE and ARCH set) make mrproper make mv88f6281_gw_defconfig make uImage make modules make INSTALL_MOD_PATH=.. module_install On a mounted disk with bootable system. ss...
