Hi,
the readme file states:"At the end of the build process (which should only take about 10 minutes), you will be left with a rootfs.tar.gz that can be used to overwrite the one in the sheeva installer 1.0 download." I've ran the script an was left with a folder "Debian" and not with a "rootfs.tar.gz". Did I get something wrong?

Please help
Thx, Thomas

Hi,
I've dowloaded the squeeze prebuild image and use this with the sheevaplug installer. So far everything works fine. After the process is finished, the plug boots an shows :

Hi,
I'm searching for an USB-Soundcard to plug at the Plug. The card should run with Debian Squeeze. I plan to run it with squeezeplay. Is there anyone who has tried this?

Tanks,
Thomas
21  General Category / General Discussion / Preconfigured tiny Client to access the Plug on: February 10, 2010, 12:44:16 AM
Hi,
I'm searching for a small system, preconfigured to access the Plug. I'm thinking about a VMWare or a usb-stick system as small as possible. The only thing this system has to do is to make a out of the box serial (USB) connection to the Plug to configure it at boot time!

Has anyone thought about a solution? Maybe DSL (Damn Small Linux)  would be a solution?! I've tried it but sont get it to work!

Thomas

Hi Michael,

I simly want to boot debian squeezy or lenny from sd-crad and leave the original system untouched.

23  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / U-Boot stuff / Howto copy debian on an usb-stick to a sd-card and boot from that? on: December 24, 2009, 06:59:48 AM
Hi,
i would like to copy an existing debian on an usb-stick to a sd-card and boot the plug from this sd-card. please note that i use a sheevaplug from NewIT which is modified for UBIFS an muliboot. I think the environment variables are slightly differnt form the original witch cost me a lot of probs.

Thanks,
Thomas
