Title: Problem with GuiPlug on eSata Sheevaplug
Post by: Starkilla on 07 March 2012, 11:45:02 am
Hello,
i just installed GuiPlug on my eSata Sheevaplug and now i have two Problems:

1. Is there a way to change the configuration so that the initial vncserver and the other stuff won't be started with the guiplug user but the root user?

2. A have a strange problem: everything is fine but suddenly after a couple of hours running (only qbittorrent is active) i lose all connections to the plug and can't reach it anymore (vnc and ssh). Can somebody help me to solve that problem?

1. you need to modify /etc/init.d/GuiPlugInit
Code: [Select]
   su guiplug  -c "vncserver :1 -name GuiPlug -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16"
change to
Code: [Select]
   su root -c "vncserver :1 -name GuiPlug -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16"

2.  Do the led's change when it loses connection?
     What is reported on the console?

thank you for the help to 1.

to 2. the leds do not change! it seams as if the plug is still working but there is no network traffic anymore. the lights of the lan connection blink less! are you talking about the ssh console or the terminal console? in the ssh console there is no message it only gets disconnected... will look into the terminal console this evening and provide that information asap! this topic sounds a little similar http://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,2139.0.html

thank you for your help!

hm ifconfig tells me that there is no ip assigned! in the console there are no anomalities... i have set a static ip now and deinstalled the networking-manager... now i am testing if that did the job!

ok, there is no problem till now... normally the sheevaplug would be down by now. strange! but i can live with a static ip!
