"new" SG30


Sat Apr 14, 2007 4:16 pm
Currently I have four of the 20's out but this is my first 30. So a few questions.
For BIOS, does shorting the 5th pin work the same as the 20?
Max supported CPU? Same as the 20?
Latest image?
Ability to upgrade to more current RH builds?
Recommended RPM updates?
And so on.

Hello ackray and welcome even if I am late.
There are two SG30 builds that I am aware of, Build 3.0.1a-149, this returns a uname -r of 2.4.18-27.8.0tosh This version works wirelessly with the old Orinoco gold 802.11b cards. But it does not support the Orinoco 8470 - FC rev1 cards.
In WebMin this is detected as Generic Linux version 2.4, which is wrong and causes web min not to load all the support it could. The package install is disabled by default.
Then there is also a build us 3.1.0-74 that supports the Orinoco 8470 - FC 802.11b/g cards. However it no longer supports the 802.11b card. As far as I know this is the last build. ( And the card bus slots work, with built in support for a number on cardbus cards. I strongly suggest adding a USB 2.0 card and a USB external drive.
