You can use xvfb + VNC and run any X11 apps. I played Doom2 on SheevaPlug in such way ^_^
xvfb + VNC is most easiest way

AFAIK ndiswrapper is x86 only thing... (such as WINE)

Now I just updated to 2.6.37-rc1 from git and ethernet working OK.
P.S.
No need in non-mainline kernels, now we just download from kernel.org and it works Wink

Please, add adequate support of mainline kernels.
Of whom are you asking that?
I'm running 2.6.35.7 - which is the latest official release and the eth0 port works fine for me there
Who released "latest official release"? kernel.org or Marvell?
P.S.
Can't see any foreseeable reason for such forks as Marvell do, really... O_o

Hello!
I have simple SheevaPlug. I got Angstrom (my own build, stable 2009 branch) working on it from SD card. I've also built kernel from git - 2.6.36-rc7 version, it boots, SD and USB working, but ethernet not.

I also know about ioremap problem in latest kernel, and simple patch which allows it to work:

MV-643xx 10/100/1000 ethernet driver version 1.4
mv643xx_eth smi: probed
net eth0: port 0 with MAC address f0:ad:4e:00:05:eb

In my system I see eth0, I can configure it, but wireshark tell me that no packets going from sheevaplug...
I boot kernel 2.6.36-rc7 by TFTP, uImage successfully downloaded, it boots, but after this no packets...

P.S.
Please, add adequate support of mainline kernels. This is not convenient to sit on some exotic branches... It's important for me to use latest kernels, built by my own hands.
