  • I had this problem and managed to repair the PSU, required surgical dissection and replacement of 2 100uF electrolytic capacitors - just hope the glued/taped case doesn't start a fir and burn the house down... You can buy new replacements cheaply on fleabay I'm sure... --- In nslu2-linux@^$1, Ed Watson wrote: > > I had the same problem. > > I found that a USB hub can power it fine...

  • FYI as a data point, mine is still running on the original 512MB PNY Attache drive installed in November 2006. It served as my sole CUPS print server up until last year, then primarily small scale NAS duty only until the recent conversion to a dedicated 1-wire network controller. I did the .ext3flash approach to minimize wear from day 1. --- In nslu2-linux@^$1, Robert Vassar wrote...

  • Hi, as covered in a prior recent thread, I've set up a unslung 6.8 slug to do remote temperature, etc. monitoring via owfs/temploggerd/rrd . In order to make this more robust, I'm planning to do Alternative 11 for recovery from a power outage (http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/ForcePowerAlwaysOn#method11). In validating my SW set up, I've run into an issue where I'm getting the...

  • Thanks for mentioning the UDP broadcast. For me, the two machines will be on separate networks across the internet so I don't think that will work in my application. We're running different firmware, so our rrdtool set ups will likely be different... that said, the key is installing temploggerd, which will drag along and set up rrdtool with the associated files and page displays...

  • Thanks Mike. Picking unslung was simply the path of least resistance, I'm repurposing a machine that was already unslung and had everything else set up to my needs as a result. I'm happy to go with the cheap drives/replace periodically approach vs. spending more time on this. Would still love a ssh/rsync remote backup recipe pointer for unslung, if one exists. Thanks again. --- In...

  • Thanks. I guess I could always just prepare them a new flash drive on a predictable schedule (eg: once a year) if they would last that long. There's more than enough space on the current 512MB(!) stick. Still interested in the original internal storage info, should anyone have it. I guess another alternative is to have the slug sftp/rsync the rrdfile data to my shared hosting...

  • I'm putting together a vacation home monitoring system for my in-laws based on an uNSLUng 6.8 slug. I have it now up and running producing graphs from the 1-wire sensors via temploggerd/RRDtool and displaying them via a separate instance of thttpd, so I can open just this one port to internet access. It is currently writing data to the USB memory stick for this purpose and I know...

  • Leave the slug always powered on. It only uses 7 watts so there is little electrical cost. When pc's cost $4000 in the '90's you would leave them always on as the cost of electricity was less than the cost of replacing the pc. Now, with pc's only a few hundred dollars and using over 100 watts in many cases it makes sense to turn them off when not used. When I buy a new electrical...
