Well, I think it could work with a single ethernet port and a switch. Perhaps I might be missing something, but let me try.
Certainly.  Using alias interfaces.  For home use, that would suffice;  it's just that I was thinking of a more secure application, enterprise-grade so to say, with dedicated ethernet interfases for both the intranet and the evil-world-outside(TM).  But, by all means, go on!

Sweet.  Thanks!

Yep, popon posted the url to this super SheevaPlug:

wifi + bluetooth + 2 ethernet ports!  ideal for Veeshnu, don't you think?

Hi!

I really like  the idea (and the witty name :-).

What I really miss in the SheevaPlug is a second ethernet port.  That's why I was considering getting an Open-RD client, which provides two.  But recently I saw a CES 2010 video where they showed a new SheevaPlug with two ethernet ports.  Let's hope that they release it in the near future.

Happy hacking!

jMy main concern is to get a fresh kernel whenever some security problem are fixed.

1) In the default /etc/apt/sources.list, there is the following repository:

# Orion repository
#deb http://people.debian.org/~tbm/orion lenny main

What is this repository for ?
Do i need it if i want to get automatic kernel update (if there is such a thing. I am wondering if i am supposed to follow what is going on at kernel.org and recompile one myself each time a security issue is fixed).

Lenny does not support the SheevaPlug, so you won't get any kernel security updates from the main repositories.

For that, you can either uncomment Martin Michlmayr's orion/kirkwood repos line (the one you mention)
 or use the backports service at http://www.backports.org.  See http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions there for instructions.

Hope that it helps.

Cheers,

Hi!

For some reason, your build
http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1134.0;attach=221

does not work for me:
Marvell>> boot

The build that pingtoo provided previously in this thread does work nicely, though:
http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1134.0;attach=201

Note that I tested your build twice, resetting the environment upon bubt.

If you need me to perform some tests, just say so.

Hope that it helps.

Happy hacking,

pancho.
