Topic: BUGbase / BUGBase trouble on reboot

No seg fault. I have tried with one of our other BUGs and the shutdown signal works just fine. After the hard reset it seems to work again.

Topic: BUGbase / BUGBase trouble on reboot

If the JVM is segfaulted it may not be able to shut it down.  I’d try a hard shutdown and looking at /var/log/concierge.log for a segfault first.

Topic: BUGbase / BUGBase trouble on reboot

After testing a couple java awt applications on my BUGbase wifi, I sent a “shutdown -r now” over ssh and the BUG freezes while the front screen displays “stopping umountfs”

Any ideas on what could be hanging the BUG? It is hooked to my Mac via the USB cable, but taking it out of the Mac appears to not help. Thanks!

Topic: BUG SDK / USB Ethernet Driver Mac 10.6

After months I finally got back to my BUG and this thread. Thanks to gnn, I tried the direct USB route and it does indeed work on Mac 10.6.3.

Topic: BUGmodules / BugLocate / GPS : moving is bad.

That’s the news : after some tests, I can say that all is clean !

Sometime a little confusing for a minute when switch it on and staying at the same place. Sometime its accuracy goes bad for a minute.

But, as I chat with a friend of me who got a good walking GPS from Garmin, it’s all the same. It’s just that those walking GPS are smarter and got algorithms to handle momentary falling accuracy. It’s like car GPS that knows you’re not into the building with your car but just next on the same street as second before. Now it’s to us to implement this smartness.


Defect is close.

Topic: Way Off Topic / Free/Open Hardware?

Hi Enno!

There isn’t really a liscence for hardware available yet. Though we’re working on one with a group of the other open hardware makers and manufacturers. Currently our schematics are lisenced with cc – creative commons with attribution and share alike. They are free and downloadable from our website: http://bugcommunity.com/wiki/index.php/Hardware

Feel free to ping me with any other research based questions :)  I’m  alicia [@] buglabs.net

Topic: Way Off Topic / Free/Open Hardware?


I am a student from Berlin/Germany and at the moment I am writing my master thesis about Open Hardware.
I want to determine how principles of Free and Open Software can be applied on development and production of non-software. So I discovered BUG Labs.

But one thing I couldn’t figure out is under what kind of license BUG Labs distributes their hardware designs. 
Are they free?
Is any manufacturer permitted to produce BUG Labs’ products?

Topic: BUGbase / BUGbase boot problems

After getting fantastic help from jconnolly and GNUtoo in the IRC channel my BUGbases are booting again. The problem turned out to be that the memory card did not have a valid Linux partition. The “How To” should be updated by jconnolly to state this step now! Thanks for the help in the channel hope this forum post is going to help others:)

Link to the step in the wiki: link

Topic: BUGbase / BUGbase boot problems


I have a boot problem with two of our BUGbase’s! When they ”boot” they never get past the “black background logo” I have tried and rewrite the rootfs twice on both BUGbase’s with out any luck. Any idea on what the problem could be or how I could debug the problem?

I can’t SSH to the BUGbase either, it seems like the Linux is never loaded / booted.

Topic: Way Off Topic / Just at school

Yeah, Many of the computer classes are boring and easy and kind of outdated.  Last year I self taught myself Drupal while I was in class…
