Other puppies do not have this. It goes to RackSpace in my local region but unsure what it is.

tcp 0 1 192.168.1.4:38799 to:

50.56.167.255:80 state=FIN_WAIT

can't ping or traceroute.

I have a number of small electronic devices that charge with a USB cable. Most can't charge on regular computer USB because of limits per port. However, there does not appear to be such a setup on the MeLe. Had two devices charging and then played a video from USB powered harddrive the VGA colors started to fade Razz
May need to find a way to measure volt drops on the 5V to keep from getting into trouble.
To save energy (for other uses) I tried to underclocked the Mele by half 500Mz, booting and shutdown was about twice as slow, but running could not see much difference most likely do to a slow SD card.

Sub_title: Need help debricking
 

Hello again,

DD'ed mele-sd-4gb-skeleton-20120506.img on a Toshiba 4GB SD. When I try to boot from SD none of the output device shows anything. So I can't even understand if it boots or not. (tried my HD TV that I've watched my movies with Mele yesterday, a standard LCD monitor, an HD LCD with VGA port, my old CRT TV with RCA port). Nothing comes up.

If I try to boot it from internal flash, it just prints "Loading Please Wait" and stays like this forever. It prints out the Mele logo and a please wait screen so I can't say it's 100% bricked but it doesn't boot anymore, not from SD Puppy not even Android...

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Conn

That is not good conn. First pull out the power cord, parts of Mele are still alive even when 'off'. Second using linux to view the /tmp files of the SD for content. If it has stuff in /tmp it made it past the 'boot' apart of puppy. Copy those files to a place to investigate. If nothing then the Mele may have tried to upgrade itself and something happened. There is a windows utility and method with USB to replace the boot load, but I have not tried it. If you have to go that route, report back what all was involved.
Also if you had internet working and now you do not, it will take extra long to boot past that loading message.
general instructions for unbricking (not written for mele be sure to get the correct img)

so can you get java in puppy on A10 arm?
new samsung galaxy III says it has java by midlets on icream sandwich 4.04.



Looked into this, it appears googles android is being sued by Sun Oracle over Java, so do not expect this to be HW or software issue. Twisted Evil

Hi Ted! Great insight, thank you... /tmp is filled with files.

Here is bootkernel.log : http://pastebin.com/tJXYby8E.
Here is bootsysinit.log : http://pastebin.com/WZqmThGS
Here is xerrs.log : http://pastebin.com/FwyQUBJt

I'll do some more trys with a LAN cable and post the results. Meanwhile, what else would you need to inspect?

TIA,
Conn

conn, try removing all connections (LAN, USB etc) just video & SD. The txt files all error on LAN so try without it( those msgs do not appear in my boot tmp files ) . If that does not resolve booting issue, leave your composte type (NTSC or PAL) and I'll make a underclocked eva.bin (half speed) for that type to continue testing.

conn, mele-sd-4gb-skeleton-20120506.img is just a boot img, not a full system.

you need this.

I tried both. The logs belong to mele-sd-4gb-lui-5.2.90.img without LAN or USB device, with just a VGA monitor.

conn, did you try one of the VGA evb.bin above. rename the current eva.bin in the first partition and replace it with one of the unzipped VGA evb.bin HDMI did not work out of the box for me either it's setup for 50hz not 60hz

Ted, your first evb.bin here works for VGA output in the Mele, even in my 1366x768 monitor.

Thanks for that.

Actually I don't know how to use a .bin file and make it work on a ready made SD image.

I'm sorry, as I'm new to Puppy world I haven't got a grasp of your distro's and setup's yet. I hope to get into Puppy soon and hopefully add my contributions as well.

Cheers,
Conn

Just a note that I will be joining the Mele fun soon. My order just shipped. (a2000)
I have a particular use in mine for it, but will surely put Puppy on it for testing / development and try to help with feedback.
