Aye, aye, My Pi!

Posted 01-28-2013 at 08:45 AM by brianL

Been having tons of fun with my recently acquired Raspberry Pi, and a few ounces of frustration. So far I've got three distros to play with: Raspbian (based on Debian "Wheezy"), that came ready installed on an SD card; Arch Linux Arm, and SlackwareArm, which I've installed on SD myself. It's a bit particular about SD cards, the Pi. Some work, some don't. That was a source of some of the frustration. Another was because Arch has changed to systemd, which made some online info obsolete....

Thought it was about time I had another go at trying to restore my Sheevaplug to its original state, but with the same results as last time. Included a screenshot this time.

Hey! What's Happened To The SheevaPlug?

I wish I knew. I've had a few sessions with it since my last blog entry, but to no avail. I can get the Marvell prompt, but nothing else. Same results with the ARMedslack on an SDHC card as before. Tried to restore the original minimal Ubuntu with the sheevaplug-installer - no luck. And I still can't remember doing anything to mess it up to such an extent. So now it's stashed away in its nice white box in a cupboard, while I occasionally do a web search, looking for things I haven't tried yet. Ah,...

Code:
/#
After running ls and ls /bin, I realised I was in BusyBox. WTF! I tried rebooting - same again. I tried resetting some environment variables from the SheevaPlug prompt, re-entering those from the ARMedslack installation notes -...
