  • Better ARM support has been added to Linux 3.7. I see that there has been some discussion about the IXP420: http://linux-kernel.2935.n7.nabble.com/Re-PULL-REQ-IXP4xx-changes-for-Linux-3-7-td368783.html Does anyone have more information about using the 3.7 kernel with the NSLU2?

  • I have a silly number of Slugs (using SlugOS and OpenWRT). I also have a SheevaPlug, a DNS-323, and a PogoPlug v2. I only know my version of the PogoPlug, but it cost $20 new (yes, new) and installing Arch Linux was easy. Of all the devices I have tested so far, it's the one that I favour to replace the Slug. I still like my Slugs, though. >>> quoted below...

  • The AC adaptor for one of my Slugs has failed. By swapping adaptors, I know that the Slug itself is still good. If you have a spare that you will not be using or want to sell, please contact me.

I'm running over 15 plugs and slugs and the ones running Optware have no problems with installing or upgrading packages Fifteen! You have me beat. I thought I was doing well with a Sheeva and six Slugs. Are you using OpenWRT on any of yours?

It's too large for my taste. For the same money (but used), I prefer something like the DNS-323 or the Sheeva Plug.

  • "Ralph & Maria Finch", I think these are the points in favour of using a Hitachi microdrive: - the size (4, 6, or 8 GB) is just right for a boot disk; a second disk could be a Flash stick for storage of large (mostly static) files - I don't have to fiddle with the OS to reduce writes to disk; the OS runs as intended - I don't have to guess about a Flash drive's quality or ability...
