Question OI 0.2 "live" on Jinke Hanlin: refusing SSH

I followed instructions for installing OI Live on my Hanlin V3.

I followed more instructions for configuring the USB/IP connection.

Everything seemed more or less OK, except that ...

% ssh root@192.168.111.1
ssh: connect to host 192.168.111.1 port 22: Connection refused

The platform I'm attempting to connect from is Mac OSX Leopard. I know my ssh works because I use it all the time to connect to other hosts, scp files, etc. But the V3 running OI does not accept my ssh attempt.

I gave it a good long time after boot in case it was desperately generating a host key -- might take a while -- but after 12 hours it still refused the connection. Can anyone shed light on this problem? I know one other user here has "no problem" connecting to OI via ssh.

Try the recent daily build: there was a bug, and I'm not sure was it fixed before 0.2 or not.

It was the Jan 5 2010 build that didn't work -- maybe I should roll back to the 0.2 official release, and also try the latest (Jan 12) build?

OK, "it works" to this extent: I can ssh into it, I can see the /mnt/storage dir, I can delete some .wol files to make some room, I can copy .epub files to the /mnt/storage dir using scp.

However, when I disconnect the cable, I am in the same state I was in on my previous attempt: I can't get to the books. Pressing the key for Library has no effect. Ditto Images, Audio. Games does get me to a menu of games. Applications gets me to a blank page. Setup gets me to setup options. But there seems to be no way to get into the list of files in /mnt/storage!

User Guide mentions a "disks" menu which I don't see on my screen.

So far, though it's a hoot to talk directly to the tiny little linux system, OI still isn't working for me as a book reader :-) I must be missing some very basic configuration issue. Do I have to run an app (as root, ssh'd in) to get the "Library" feature to see my .epub files in /mnt/storage?

If I hit the 0 (right arrow) key while looking at the main menu, I get to a text-only version, headed with text "GM:Help". This turns out to be a help facility, explaining each main menu item. However, it doesn't explain how to get the Library menu item to show me a list of books.

I think I'll roll back to v0.2 release and see if that works any better. somehow get the feeling I'm being a beta tester here :-) happy to oblige!

Try running "DISPLAY=:0 madshelf" and see if it fails (it should fail, as you can't run the "Library" and the rest of stuff).

Question error message from madshelf

Unable to initialize tags database: unable to open database file

This sure sounds like "stupid user" (i.e. me) error. What is the database file? Is it something I should have generated and loaded along with my epub files? Or should OI have autogenerated during boot?

I tried running madshelf with various flags to try to get some debug, but no joy there.

My, that's a teeny tiny kernel :-) Do I have enough mem to run madshelf?

Mem: 29168K used, 1212K free, 0K shrd, 636K buff, 18340K cached

Any other diags I can run?

ls -la

empty.

I will have to mkdir apps.

what else is missing if the whole apps dir is nonexistent?

btw

Everything should be created "on fly", so I suspect whole $HOME is read-only or fs is broken.

Question / full?

so hmmm what could be filling it up?

/home/user # cd /
/ # ls
bin/ etc/ lost+found/ opt/ sbin/ tmp/
boot/ home/ media/ proc/ srv/ usr/
dev/ lib/ mnt/ root@ sys/ var/
/ # du -s *
457 bin
1 boot
8 dev
253 etc
5 home
4014 lib
12 lost+found
408689 media
6341 mnt
1 opt
0 proc
0 root
833 sbin
1 srv
0 sys
4 tmp
41702 usr
1506 var


is this something I did or something wrong with this daily?

I always suspect /var, myself, but I don't see any big logs.
there's a bit of space used in /var/lib for dpkg.

I'm not sure what this linux is supposed to look like so... not sure where to look for the problem.

# cd /usr
/usr # du -s *
6784 bin
1 include
17137 lib
10 local
1288 sbin
16439 share
42 var


I await your advice :-) why is / full? what is /dev/loop0? why is it so small? will the answer be "42"???

lot-o-stuff in /usr. No idea why, maybe it's time to enlarge / a bit.

/dev/loop0 is a loop-mount for a file in SD.
