Debian lenny was a breath of fresh air that made the sheeva plug simple again.
    The SheevaPlug Installer almost completely fixed that. It flenses the nand with ubifs, then installs a new root fs, kernel, modules that don't suck. You may actually find it useful as a way to easily reinstall debian on your plug.

    Not much to add in but you might want to consider ruby/rails or python/django over php.

    MVC (model, view, controller) is so much more mature on these platforms. php .... I loved that language but ... close to 10 years was more than enough.

    @chunky - I reflashed my Sheeva with the installer, but...and this is going to sound really silly...I can't tell if it is ubifs or not! I ran the runme.php script and sure enough it ran but the plug doesn't seem any faster than it was.

    I've search high and low for a way to tell what type of file system you have and can't find any type of entry that reports back what your file system is. Any hints on how to check it?

    Huh. "rootfs" if I type mount. Stupid

    On your plug, run "dmesg | grep -i ubifs"

    On my plug, the output is:
    Code:
    chunky@chunkplug:~$ dmesg | grep -i ubifs
    Kernel command line: console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500000(rootfs) ubi.mtd=1 root=ubi0:rootfs rootfstype=ubifs
    UBIFS: mounted UBI device 0, volume 0, name "rootfs"
    UBIFS: file system size:   515579904 bytes (503496 KiB, 491 MiB, 3996 LEBs)
    UBIFS: journal size:       25804800 bytes (25200 KiB, 24 MiB, 200 LEBs)
    UBIFS: media format:       w4/r0 (latest is w4/r0)
    UBIFS: default compressor: lzo
    UBIFS: reserved for root:  4952683 bytes (4836 KiB)
    VFS: Mounted root (ubifs filesystem) on device 253:1.
    chunky@chunkplug:~$
    Which clearly says it did mount the root as ubifs. But I'm not entirely sure why the output when I type "mount" says it's "rootfs"

    Meh. Still jffs. I got nothing when I grepped ubifs but I got something when I use jffs.

    I've done something wrong. Time to go back to the install instructions.

    Probably why you didn't see a performance increase!

    Why do you need a separate gpsd package to the one that came in Jaunty? Also, if you have gpsd, do you have the respective libgps and libgps-dev?

    yes, libgps-dev and friends are also there (including python-gpsd). This version patches the udev rules that gpsd in jaunty provides removing handling for ftdi. When accompanied with the ice-rules package, this allows you to *hopefully* plug and play obdgpslogger with your favorite ftdi-based scantool.
