1  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Dreamplug v0101 support on: September 19, 2013, 04:22:35 PM
I have an old dreamplug (0101 is on the sticker on the back).  The model number is 003-DS2001.  It was running Debian and I ran an update via apt-get, which failed half way through, and now the OS is corrupt so I need to rebuild.  I have an SD card reader/writer so I don't have to mess with updating via UBoot.  I've tried the old (v1, v2) Debian and Ubuntu distributions on https://code.google.com/p/dreamplug/downloads/list and both seem to be out of date.  The debian version also sometimes hangs after reboot.  I haven't diagnosed why.  Neither is able to successfully 'apt-get update' and neither appears to be exactly what I received from the factory.  I also downloaded and tried v9 and v10, but neither worked properly.

Question 1: Is dreamplug compatible with other plug computers?  Should I be looking for content for sheevaplpug or guruplug or something else?

Question 2: Is is possible to get a newer or more current Linux distribution running on my dreamplug?  I don't care which distro it is as long as it works.  I'm also willing to update UBoot, if necessary.

Any instruction is grealy appreciated.

Thanks!
