SheevaPlug - a Debian home server in a wall-wart

,----[ Quote ]
| This write-up was intended as a very high-level 
| review of my experience setting up this unusual 
| system, and is by no means a step-by-step 
| walkthrough. There is plenty of detailed 
| information available online on websites such 
| as plugcomputer.org and computingplugs.com that 
| can prove invaluable to get things working on 
| the SheevaPlug. As remarked before, the system 
| is sold as a developer's kit and setting it up 
| is definitely not for the faint of heart or for 
| those who avoid the terminal like the plague. 
| In the end, I had a lot of fun getting this to 
| work and the system is working beautifully. I 
| learned a lot in the process and am amazed yet 
| again at how flexible Debian is as an operating 
| system for just about any computer, even 
| embedded systems like this one.



Reviewed: SheevaPlug development kit

| Is it possible to cram a whole Linux
| server into something the size of a plug?
| Apparently it is - Marvell has combined
| gigabit Ethernet, flash storage and an ARM
| CPU with a full install of Ubuntu to
| produce the tiniest Linux server we've
| seen for some time. Can you resist the
| power of your geek hardware lust? If not,
| don't read on...


Debian NAS project turns to SheevaPlug

,----[ Quote ]
| Martin Michlmayr has published several
| guides about running Debian on the Linksys
| NSLU2 ("Slug") router/NAS device,
| including one on migrating a Debian NSLU2
| installation to Marvell's SheevaPlug NAS
| design. With the latest guides on
| troubleshooting, booting, modifying, and
| cloning Debian on the NSLU2, the
| documentation is essentially complete,
| says Michlmayr.


ARM-based Linux PC in a plug comes to the UK

,----[ Quote ]
| Marvell has introduced an ARM-based Linux PC in a plug for Â63. Called
| SheevaPlug, the device is a reference design, evaluation kit, and usable home
| server rolled into one, and is a shrunk version of the US-only SheevaPlug
| released earlier this year.


SheevaPlug: the NSLU2 killer

,----[ Quote ]
| I received a SheevaPlug this week, an intriguing device that packs incredible
| power and functionality into a tiny package. As many of you know, I've been
| doing a lot of work on Debian for the Linksys NSLU2 in the last few years.
| The NSLU2 is a key reason why ARM has become the third most popular
| architecture in Debian (after 32 and 64 bit x86), and I believe a main reason
| is that the NSLU2 is so incredibly cheap. At a price under $100, most people
| don't think too long and simply buy a device and do something cool with it.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
