o.k. the last bit first ... It all depends on it you are running from a SD card / Hard drive or the internal nand.
The internal nand is a little too small to install x windows on, so I will assume that you will add a SD card or hard drive to the mix . Then yes ... x windows and vnc works well with limits.
I would get , and have two Esata versions of the sheevaplug .

It all depends on if you want to play with your plug installing a operating system on it , or want to get a fully made appliance.
And think the sheevaplug as more ram than the  TonidoPlug and PogoPlug ?

what happens to the green and blue leds on top when it goes dark ?

Like all computer problems you have to work out if the problem is hardware or software , looks like hardware to me.
I would say it MAY be the psu , but not heard of that problem with the psu.

I wouldn`t be able to cope with it having a fan !!!!
The whole point of my plug is that it`s got to be, no noise , low power use.

FATs doesn`t have Permissions ( user rights )

I`ve made transmission download to mnt/share with any type of format and not had a problem.
what is the user rights / Permissions is on the (/media and /media/usb0/downloads) folders ?

Hi , Have you looked it this:-

Windows on ARM !!!!

If they leave it too long the door will shut behind them, and become a file server , android and windows tablet.

I can`t fully see what point you want answering, so I will give my comments based on your real-world experiences with the plug over the last 10 months.
First I got my plug to replace a hacked Buffalo Linkstation pro which I used for a couple of years downloading torrent and serving them via it`s file server.
Over the last 10 month my plug as been constantly acting the same roles with a couple more too.
( torrent server , web server , dlna server , file server , music player(alarm clock))

The problems I`ve had are all been due to hardware , my SD card , PSU driving the USB hard drive Enclosure , the plug psu. I not had any software problems yet , and learnt the hard way.
( 1 ) if you can boot from the hard drive ... use the SD card or nand only for testing, not long term use.
( 2 ) Get the Esata version. More stable than adding an usb drive.

I would say the limit of disks you can use on a sheevaplug is the same limit you connect to with any computer running Linux, the problem is with the Esata port whether it has port multiplier support in the kernal.
I think the sheevaplug can run any Linux software if you can get it to compile, but the sheevaplug doesn`t have hardware floating point just software.

I had to include this patch "http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/2.6.32.21/source/linux-2.6.32-sheeva-sata.patch" to get it to work with Esata.
41  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Dropbox -> How to upload files from Guruplug? on: December 16, 2010, 08:58:14 AM
there is no linux ARM version !!!!! , but there is a Android version in the market,  which runs on ARM.
So I guess the no ARM version, is not fully true .

Hi , I`ve been using a sheevaplug for about 9 months continuously for the role of torrent server amongst other roles.
One thing that stops fires is fitting the right fuse !!!!!
43  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Round #1 - Your feedback required. New SheevaPlug concepts. on: September 27, 2010, 03:16:34 PM
I am a owner of 2 esata sheevaplugs , and did order a Guruplug but converted my order to a esata sheevaplug. Due to the heat problems and not been able to use the second Ethernet port at full speed.

Plug form factor not important to me as long as it`s not bigger than a hard drive enclosure. 
( My order of importance )
Must have the highest processing power available (vs. lowest price/performance) - But more ( power efficiency vs performance )
Must be quite and doesn't include any moving parts
Must be in the price range $100-$150
Must be packaged within an enclosure (vs.  bare-bones)
Must have slick design and look.
Must be in red and have go faster stripes

Nice ideas would be to have USB3 , and extra Ethernet ports without overheating the design or having to need to install a fan.
44  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Sheevaplug or Guruplug: what to choose? on: July 16, 2010, 07:51:36 AM
Answering the main question, which is better the sheevaplug or the guruplug .
I`ve given up on the Guruplug completely, so I may be a little biased having 2 sheevaplugs now.
If you don`t need the extra Ethernet port or the built-in wifi , blue tooth I would go for the Sheevaplug.

If you need it for file sharing, ( adding a hard drive ) I would also recommend the Esata version of the Sheevaplug.

I most agree with feffer on the subject of Globalscale, I have got both of my plug from NewIt , which I can unbiasedly say have the best after sales, But could do with finding a better product to sell.
People like myself who pre-ordered the Guruplug spent months having Globalscale putting back the delivery date back after ever , so don`t have any trusted in Globalscale at all.

You are not on your own looking for alternatives, but most of what I`ve seen are normally lacking in memory, mostly 64meg or very costly compared to the sheevaplug.

What package adds udev rules ?

While booting I`m getting messages that it can`t read a few udev files.
 My udev directory only contents 4 files compared to 20 with my pre-built tarball.

/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
/etc/udev/links.conf
/etc/udev/udev.conf

Thanks in advance  Peter
