Re: Qube2700 / new install of Martin's Debian

I have a 2700, though I have not been able to work with it for some time. I found out about something called a "jtag" connector that is on my Linksys WRT54g router. Evidently, everything is there for console access, but the actual pins for the serial connection. Commonly the "fix" for an apparently dead from a linux firmware misconfiguration is to solder in the pins for the jtag, and connect it to your system, as any serial connection on another system. Some have actually installed a DB9 connector for easy-access.

Can this be done on a 2700?

In fact, the display *is* able to tell display the current eth0 IP. Just have a look at /etc/default/colo and you'll see what I mean; it's quite
self-explanatory. Essentially, all you need to do is to uncomment the
last two lines. You might need to restart paneld, I'm not exactly sure.
/etc/init.d/paneld restart

Well, I guess this step should be included in Martin's base image then;
or at least a post-image-install step. Because once the HDD is back in
the Qube, you don't get the chance to edit files ... until you know the
MAC or IP and can ssh in ...

Have I missed something here, or are my only

Yup, you missed one option indeed: Establishing a link to the serial
console to see what's going on :)

No, I missed the option of having a Qube that actually has a serial
console; the 2700 seems to have space on the IO board, but no

I now know what the MAC address is, nmap knows the Cobalt IANA
allocation and that makes it easy to find :-) but it wasn't labelled on
the case (it is now), and I couldn't find anything looking like an
address chip inside.
