Re: iTunes server on Tonido Plug

No, not a dumb question. I believe all explicit dependencies have been met. However, I think it's possible that it could be a problem with sqlite not being installed. I haven't yet had time to investigate further. root@ginger:~# dpkg -l '*avahi*' Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold | Status=No...

Changing the kjournald / ext3 commit interval

I wanted to go with ext2 formatted flash drive but, because of the (bug) inability to unmount an ext2 formatted device, went with ext3. However, the journaling commit interval is set to 5 seconds and I'd like to change that. I can't remember how, though - it's been a while since I'd played with thin...

Re: Shutting down / turning off the Tonido Plug

Cool. OK, I see that the root file system is UBIFS ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UBIFS ), a journaling file system, so this should help if no shutdown is issued. Aug 31 22:48:37 ginger kernel: UBIFS: mounted UBI device 0, volume 0, name "rootfs" Aug 31 22:48:37 ginger kernel: UBIFS: file ...

Re: iTunes server on Tonido Plug

For the curious, I'm including the mt-daapd log below. I haven't had time to follow up on this but there's definitely a direction of research indicated in the log. 2009-08-30 16:28:27 (41050c10): Firefly Version svn-1696: Starting with debuglevel 2 2009-08-30 16:28:27 (41050c10): Error loading plugi...

Last update, I swear!

And it settled down further to 2.4/2.5 watts. Nice. :D

Re: Sheeva Plugpower consumption

Oh - a little update. It's now oscillating between 2.8 and 3.0 watts. I'm guessing it went into a lower power mode.

Shutting down / turning off the Tonido Plug

There doesn't appear to be a way, from the Plug Admin web page, to quiesce the Tonido Plug before removing power other than logging in using ssh and issuing a shutdown command. Do you recommend issuing a shutdown before pulling the plug? If so, would it be possible to add a Shutdown Plug button to t...

Re: Sheeva Plugpower consumption

With a Patriot Xporter Magnum 64GB USB Flash Drive (Model PEF64GMNUSB) plugged into it, my Tonido settled in at 4.7 watts (measured with a Watts Up? power meter).

Re: iTunes server on Tonido Plug

Installing mt-daapd appears to have worked and required installation of 38 other new packages and used a total of 12.7 MB of space. Mt-daapd runs its own webserver on port 3689 (default) for administration purposes. I was able to connect to that web server but not (yet) able to have iTunes recognize...
