Thanks for sharing.  I had the exact same questions.  I followed your guide and upgraded to 2.6.30.4.  Everything seems to be working so far.

ok, I found this issue is discussed in http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/New_Plugger_How_To

I followed everything in the guiide but now my time is off:  Mon Jan 26 18:10:17 UTC 2009
even though I added /usr/sbin/ntpdate-debian to /etc/rc.local

I can run /usr/sbin/ntpdate-debian from the command line it sets the date properly.

I ran created the /var/cache/apt/archives/partial directory and ran apt-get update.  After that the openjdk installed fine.  Should I be installing packages as root?

Any ideas on what is going on?  It sounds like others are installing packages without any issues.  I just got the plug and running the default os. btw, I'm logged in via ssh.

20  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / USB Stick/SDIO Card on: August 07, 2009, 11:25:50 AM
Just got my sheevaplug.  I'd like to get started by installing some apps (java, tomcat etc) but there's not enough space in flash memory.  Do I need to configure the SD card as the root filesystem, as described in this guide http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/SD_Card_As_Root_File_System or can I just plug in the card and install apps to the card instead of the flash memory.  Second question, is the procedure for using a USB stick the same as a SD card?  Thanks.
