Installing ArchLinux on Pogoplug:

If you get a B01 or P21, follow this link
http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms...provideov3

Make sure the model number is correct. Go with the model number listed on the label at the bottom of the actual device (not the box).

If you get a E02 instead (which has more RAM), follow this link instead
http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms...2-pinkgray

********************************************************************************

Note: If you are a Windows user like me, use Putty [earth.li] to SSH into Pogo.
ArchLinux/ARM Installation [archlinuxarm.org]... steps are almost flawless, just make sure to insert the root USB stick in the back-bottom slot Smilie...!

Samba Installation [archive.org]...Everything BEFORE "Starting the server" section is correct. For starting the server, run below command from Alarm prompt
systemctl start smbd nmbd

For auto-starting Samba service each time after Pogo is rebooted, run below command only once and then you'll never have to worry about starting Samba manually:-
systemctl enable smbd.service

For USB device/HDD mounting [archlinux.org].

For auto-mounting these devices each time after Pogo is rebooted, run below commands
nano /etc/fstab
Then paste this line ->
UUID="ABCD" /mnt/Songs ntfs defaults 0 0 # Put your device's UUID instead of ABCD. My HDDs are ntfs type. Put your own type if different. Add one line for each device with it's UUID and type (e.g. ntfs). If you don't know the UUID, run this command blkid -o list -c /dev/null
Now just save this file and exit.

Now power off/on Pogo and check if it boots properly in ALARM and if you can access the HDDs over LAN by \\ALARM or \\192.168.x.y where 192.168.x.y is the Pogo's IP address Smilie.

Best of luck...!!! Smilie

********************************************************************************

Some Linux-Guru has written an article on how to install Plex Media Server (PMS) on PoGoPlug here [barbin.us] ...!!!

********************************************************************************
Edit: here are my notes on netconsole:
serverip is the IP that the boot messages will be SENT to
ipaddr will be the IP of your pogoplug OS (before it boots into the usb kernel)
Change those to fit your network topology.
Code:
cd /usr/sbin
./fw_setenv serverip 10.0.1.119
./fw_setenv ipaddr 10.0.1.200
./fw_setenv if_netconsole 'ping $serverip'
./fw_setenv start_netconsole 'setenv ncip $serverip; setenv bootdelay 10; setenv stdin nc; setenv stdout nc; setenv stderr nc; version;'
./fw_setenv preboot 'run if_netconsole start_netconsole'
Then use socat, netcat, nc, ncat or whatever to read that network traffic, being sure that firewalls aren't blocking the traffic:
Code:
 socat STDIO UDP-LISTEN:6666

They are all the same. Different model means different color.

If you flash this device to Arch Linux ARM you can add programs such as sick beard and sabnzbd to make a great stand alone NAS. I have one and it works great.

The value in this product is not as is, but in the hackability of it which opens it up to so much more. You can search for a previous thread with a lot of valuable information.

Is there a way to use this device to put a folder on my computer that is essentially "the cloud" so that other computers can access it? I don't want to use Pogoplug's software if I can avoid it.
