Just bought a SheevaPlug!!

Post by mgillespie » Fri Jun 05, 2009 6:27 pm

Need to downgrade from a fullblown MiniTX system, but at the same time did want to inherit the limitations and 3rd party dependencies of a NAS, so have invested in a SheevaPlug, which I intend to use in conjunction with my WD MyBook Mirror (2TB) and Twonkymedia ARM version... (Bizzare that Western Digital make me choose between having a smart device with a media server in it, OR having mirroring options - they don't do a product with both...)

I'll let you know when it arrives and I get something working. Will make a very nice server methinks... Its the same size as a mains "wall wart", but has 1.2Ghz processor 512MB of flash (for the OS) and 512MB of DRAM, and there are numerous flavours of Linux or BSD that go on it.

If anyone has any experiences of the Marvel SheevaPlug, please post!!!!

The SheevaPlug eventually turned up on Monday (this is a VERY popular item right now, and leadtimes are very long).

Anyway, I'm REALLY impressed with it so far. It's an incredible bit of kit for $99. It's pretty simple to get Twonkymedia running on the plug, and it performs very well.

I have detailed setting up Twonkymedia on the plug, on the plugcomputer.org Wiki.

http://www.openplug.org/plugwiki/index.php/TwonkyMedia

The plug is running other stuff nicely, lighttpd web server (with PHP), samba windows filesharing. and I have some other plans for it too. I'm currently using 30% of the space in the flash, which includes the Ubunut 2.6.30.4 kernel and Ubuntu root filesystem with the apps I mentioned above. Stuck my 1TB Western Digital MyBook mirror into the SheevaPlug and I have all the benefits of NAS (low power consumption, small form factor), but without the limitations (what it runs is exactly what I want it to run...), it's also has considerably more horsepower than most NAS boxes too...

If someone is looking for a NAS without the limitations of NAS, then I would definitely recommend one of these.

The Sheevaplug uses the Marvell Kirkwood ARM platform, and I have been testing some builds nicely provided to me by the guys in Berlin.

The builds have all been performing very well, and I just got an email from Reinhard in Berlin, to say that as from 5.1 RC6, the Kirkwood builds will be published automatically along with the vast number of other platforms that PacketVideo build binaries for.

You can pick up a the first Kirkwood build from here: http://twonkyforum.com/unsupported/5.1- ... ta-237.zip
