Sent an email to NewIT, and got a reply. Apparently the latest batch of plugs have a "slightly different processor" (no details given), and that has meant them having to make adjustments to "the images they supply on the units and SD cards" (a modified Ubuntu 9.04, etc). So I should get it next week. Fingers crossed. I don't know how or if this change to the processor will affect installing ARMedslack. It's a wait and see situation.

A Little Addition To The Hardware Family

Posted 08-17-2010 at 05:55 AM by brianL

I bought a netbook yesterday. Cute little buggers, aren't they? I would have liked an ARM-based one, but there are none (decent ones, anyway) readily available. Intel Atom has a monopoly, it seems. So I got an Asus eeepc 1001HA for just under 200. It's got XP Home preinstalled, and I've put Ubuntu Netbook Edition on it. I don't know how long this arrangement will last. Not keen on the XP, after all I've got XP Pro on my laptop, so that may have to go sooner or later. UNE is OK, so far. We shall...

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.
