The link I posted has detailed instructions (which we could just link to off of the plug wiki). I haven't been able to try it myself due the shortage of Sheevaplugs. I was never successful in making a console cable to work with my PogoPlug and I am afraid I'd brick the thing and not be able to restore it.

I didn't see this posted anywhere else in the forum so...

Now Slackware is also on the plug :-)

I can see one possible benefit of this (if it can be made to work) as a way to network a very popular media player device, the Western Digital WD TV Media player.

the device itself is fairly open and a lot of homebrew apps and firmware have appeared:

If you can access the Sheevaplug as a NAS to put files on local storage, and then change modes so that it appears as mass storage to the WD TV, presto, instant networked device.

I own this one:

And it works well in Windows, Mac and Linux. Haven't tried it yet on the plug, but I believe the chipset is supported.

I'm going to see if I can give it a try tonight or tomorrow. Installing on a Pogoplug though, not a Sheeva.

I am able to see the attachment correctly. I had to open it in another tab in my browser to size it correctly though...

I actually called GlobalScale today to see if the 4 week estimate is still valid. They said it was for both the Plug and the RD Client. I asked when they thought the drought might be over and they said maybe by the end of June.

Ironically, the PogoPlug website was updated today stating they were shipping in 24 to 48 hours:

I think this is the same unit missing the JTAG board and SD slot. But judging from this post:

http://www.pogoplugged.com/forum/thread/11515/Need-mkfs.jffs2-and-other-tools/

It looks like at least console access is still pretty easily had. Wonder if GlobalScale will just sell the riser board for development separately...

I installed Asterisk 1.6.1.0 in my plug and it is working perfectly for SIP. I'm just facing some problems with chan_mobile, the audio through bluetooth is only working on one way. I have the same setup in a x86 and it works. For some reason the bluetooth drivers in the plug are not working properly. The received packets are not properly parsed. I'm trying to investigate this bug.

Thanks for the success story. May I asked how you installed, package or source? Any particular issues, or did it simply just work? Thanks again.

Anybody ever get Asterisk running on a plug? I haven't gotten a plug yet to try, but I saw this device today that makes me more anxious to try:

http://sangoma.com/products_and_solutions/hardware/analog_telephony/usb_fxo.html

A simple USB dongle to add to FXO ports. Sangoma has good reputation for quality and open drivers, so the combination of these two might be interesting. Ironically, the device seems to be going for about $139 USD, making it more than the plug itself. But a fully functional two line PBX for about $240 sounds pretty sweet, considering it could be extended fairly easily with a hub and another dongle.

Hmmm...I wonder if Hylafax will work...
