Thanks for this. This means that my SheevaPlug is probably bricked now (not your fault; I tried the lucid and only later found out that someone had tried that with very bad results
). I need to find out how to get it back to life; can I just download an SD image and boot from that? The plug was bought march 2010, which means it's a regular multiboot SheevaPlug, right?
Depends if you bought regular or multiboot. If you're not sure, the only way to verify is to look at your environment variables. If recover1
exist, it's multiboot.
- SD card installation is trashed (lucid code not working). Lots of "Invalid instruction" (or something similar)
If your SD card has lucid on it in some shape or form, forget about it. Your best bet is to either copy a full (Jaunty or Debian) SD card image, or to manually partition & place your own rootfs on it.
- Can boot to NAND by removing SD card
So it's probably multiboot.
So the image you tried to copy was larger than your SD card. You would be better off using a smaller image, then resize2fs
whilst the SD card is not yet mounted.
