hi,

I've been testing my eBox-2300, booting from a USB-pen drive.

The main problem up to now is that the ethernet chipset is not detected.

Anyone can help, please ?

tnx.

I'm using eBoxPup-2.13-0.1a on my eBox-2300 right now to play some MP3's using GQmpeg Wink

Regarding the ethernet chipset, first make sure you copied zdrv_213.sfs to your USB pen. Then reboot and click on the 'connect' icon, then 'Connect to Internet by network interface...' to open the network wizard. You should see that the '8139too' module is loaded.

Now click on 'eth0', then 'Test eth0' to see if your cable is connected. If alive, and you have a DHCP server, just click on 'Auto DHCP' and you should get the 'Successful' message. Click 'Yes' to save the configuration. That's it!

I just did the steps above after booting into RAM and it worked perfectly Smile

I've just get an ebox 2300 and installed the eboxpup without problems but I can't put the screen resolution more than 800x600 pixels. I have an hp 17" lcd screen and the lcd's osd shows a message saying the vga adaptor frequency it's out of limits when I try 1024x768 or more tho screen it's prepared to 1280x1024/60hz and the eboxpup X tests says the monitor and vga supports that resolutions.

Yes, I get that same problem when trying to use Xvesa - 800x600 is max without exceeding the monitor's frequency range. I use Xorg instead. I've got my eBox-2300 running at 1280x1024@59.9Hz right now.

Just choose Xorg instead of Xvesa when you boot, then choose your resolution from the list that shows after the hardware probing - it takes a while but works everytime for me Wink

Hi

I have an eBox 2300 running Puppy, until here no problem but I want to use it mainly as a kiosk web browser (full screen) to display just information about a few sensors I got at home. Basically something with an browser is all what I need.

I'm very new to Linux so I decided to use PupBeGone to uninstall some most of the applications that come with eBoxPup. Because Puppy runs from RAM I'm not able to uninstall any application as soon as I reboot they are still there. Is there anyway to run eBoxPup from the Hard Drive (IDE Flash)?

Or is it any other way around it?

You could use PupBeGone and then remaster (before rebooting!) -- that way the "removed" apps won't be in the remaster.

You could probably also do a full install (but I'm not sure if the installer will let you do it, or if you'll need to do it manually: mybe try installing to the IDE flash as if it were a normal IDE drive).

Downloaded the latest version and tried to boot on an eBox 2300SX (300MHz but no co-processor). Pup up gave up after not finding the math co-processor. Is there a way to enable math (FPU) emulation in eBoxPup to allow it to work on the 2300SX?

There is no clear explanation from the sellers whether the 300 mhz ebox is a better or inferior version than the 200 mhz SoC. I guess we're seeing now how the "new" 300 mhz is doing.

Paul, thank you for your instructions.

The LAN chip was not being detected because the settings that had been saved on the USB pendrive were those of my laptop. So I did a fresh install on a CF, and I'm using my ebox2300 with eboxpup right now...

Installing to CF and getting it to boot should have been a straightforward matter but somehow I turned it into another adventure... sometimes frustrating but when at the end it works, its such a relief and satisfaction... ( Here I really want to thank everyone who contribute in the forum either with their questions, their solutions, their experiments, their ideas, etc... It makes the whole adventure so much less stressful knowing that one is not alone and that there's always at least one helpful hand out there...)

I'm now having a problem with Gparted : up to now I've never been able to get it to even launch !!! Is it a problem with my setup ? Anyone having an explanation ??

As a side note, I've tried Puppy 3.01 on an ebox-3850 and it works like a charm. My 10-yr old desktop PC is actually in a coma and I've sent it to have a checkup. But I'm now really considering ditching it and replace it with the ebox-3850...

Up to now I'm quite satisfied with the performances of the ebox's, but my main concern is how hot they get since they are fanless machines and the chassis is used as a heatsink... I'm mainly concerned about how the heat will affect the components inside and especially a HD because I intend to put 2.5" HDs in them!!! Anyone has any ideas/experience wrt the heat generated by ebox's???

Francois.

The 2300SX is quite different than the original eBox-2300. See this thread for details: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1407487873&t=21864

EDIT: Oh, donnie has it posted already - the thread must have sat in my browser a bit too long before I responded.
