Thinking about buying a Sheevaplug..

Could I install Ubuntu 9.10 and manage it via VNC/Remote Desktop ?
Install Wine and Mercury32 Email Server ?

I'm currently running Mercury32 on a windows 2003 server, but if it would work on a Sheevaplug.. I'd move across.

Comments and suggestions welcome Smiley

Many Thanks

it makes no sense to manage an embedded system with a graphical desktop.

* use ssh and commandline tools
* if you realy need graphical stuff install a X11 Server on your Desktop and use X11 forwarding
* linux has a lot of fine MTA (mail transport agents). i suggest postfix + dovecot
* i have no idea if wine compiles on ARM. But i'm sure if it does it will be slow as hell

... and according to previous threads specific to this point, Ubuntu 9.10/Karmic Koala is not supported on the Sheevaplug's ARM - but other distributions including Debian and FreeBSD, upon which Ubuntu is based - are.

Thanks for the replies.

The reason I want mercury is I have it very well configured and it does things that I've not been able to find on linux platform.
The main one being transaction filtering.

Thanks.

Wine runs the windows apps natively, and simply provides the libraries and such that those apps are expecting. As such, x86 apps will not run on an ARM CPU..
