Still waiting for my SheevaPlug. The website mentions the 11th of August as the delivery day, so with a bit of luck I should get it by Friday...maybe. Not sure what I'll be using it for, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. If I can get ARMedslack running on it, without totally screwing everything up, I'll be happy.

They (whoever "They" are) say it's a virtue. Not that I've ever been keen on virtues, but I am more patient now than I used to be. Which is ironic, really. The older you get, the less time you have left, so you should be less patient.
I'm sat here like a kid waiting for Christmas, waiting for two parcels to arrive: my Slackware T-shirt + "official" DVD, and my Sheevaplug. If I could wear my Slackware T-shirt while installing ARMedslack on the Sheevaplug, that would be...

After screwing things up, I tried mounting the .img file and editing /etc/inittab, and it didn't work out. So I started afresh, deleted the /export/armhost directory. And began the installation process (see here, from about 4.1) at about 9.20 AM. It is now 3.15 PM and it's just got as far as the t package series. Let us all pray that I do it right this time. Amen.

When I first read about the Sheevaplug months ago, I thought it looked like a useful little gadget. Then recently I read this interview with Stuart Winter, and got even more interested. So, without considering the fact that I can't swim, I dived in at the deep end. I've ordered a Sheevaplug, and while I'm waiting for it to arrive, I installed ARMedslack in QEMU. I haven't exactly timed it, but doing a full Slackware install on a HDD takes around 30 minutes, ARMedslack in QEMU took about 7 hours....
