      Hi ,
      One new pogoplug arrived this morning.
      I tried to install Debian Wheezy, but the installer seems broken, so I installed Squeeze and
      upgraded to wheezy, Installed cups , but the available print resolution is very limited, and no
      foomatic or gutenprint available.
      So I thought I 'd try Arch , downloaded the tarball untarred it, rebooted and it just sat there
      doing sweet nothing, the partition was made bootable.
      So I went back to squeeze thinking if the foomatic and gutenprint package was available for a NSLU2,
      which cant handle it, it should be there, but alas it isn't.
      I Tried to get raw printing with the NSLU2 working but again the resolution is limited, |OK for a
      page of text, but I do occasionally throw a high resolution pcb negative in the print queue.
      What distros are available for a pogoplug that haven't reduced the available print drivers.
      the epson drivers in the cups package just produce a solid black patch about 1cm x 3 cm on the top
      LH corner of the page.
      BTW its not pink and grey, black and clear, but still a V2
