Not exactly a distribution, but you can simply use the optware/cs08q1armel feed on various rootfs's. I've tested that the feed works fine on DevKit rootfs1.0, and ubuntu.

The setup instruction is at http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/HomePage

For web server, subversion, git server and all sorts of headless applications, you don't need a full distribution. There's also native toolchain in the feed. There's a squeezecenter package, however it needs some more testing (squeezecenter on other feeds are known to work).

We plan to have a kernel-image/kernel-modules feed open soon.

Cheers,

Hi Brian,
I had used your optware feed for slugosbe, from its very early days, including some beta testing.  I am about to order the plug.  Before getting my plug, how can I view the pkgs of this stream from my slugosbe?  I do not have any other *nix os.

Not that knowledgeable about the contents of these pkg streams .... I assume this stream is different from the ones you had for slugosbe?

To take a look at the packages in this feed, just use a browser and goto
  http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/cs08q1armel/cross/unstable/
  http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/sheevaplug/cross/unstable/

The kernel feed is specific to kirkwood SoC, and with SATA as kernel module, it's specific to the sheeva plug. So you cannot install these on other device.

To look inside any ipk, you can wget the file, then tar -xzvf ipk_name, then tar -xzvf data.tar.gz

Brian,  The feed above will not work with initial rootfs that comes with the SheevaPlug, right?  I think it is Debian.  I just got the Plug.
