I have made a perfect (as I think) Linux ARM system for Raspberry Pi 2. I call it RaspEX. It is based on Debian Jessie (upcoming Debian 8), Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (upcoming Ubuntu 15.04) and Linaro (Open Source software for ARM SoCs).

Aye, aye, My Pi!

Posted 01-28-2013 at 08:45 AM by brianL

Been having tons of fun with my recently acquired Raspberry Pi, and a few ounces of frustration. So far I've got three distros to play with: Raspbian (based on Debian "Wheezy"), that came ready installed on an SD card; Arch Linux Arm, and SlackwareArm, which I've installed on SD myself. It's a bit particular about SD cards, the Pi. Some work, some don't. That was a source of some of the frustration. Another was because Arch has changed to systemd, which made some online info obsolete....

Thought it was about time I had another go at trying to restore my Sheevaplug to its original state, but with the same results as last time. Included a screenshot this time.

Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

Hey! What's Happened To The SheevaPlug?

I wish I knew. I've had a few sessions with it since my last blog entry, but to no avail. I can get the Marvell prompt, but nothing else. Same results with the ARMedslack on an SDHC card as before. Tried to restore the original minimal Ubuntu with the sheevaplug-installer - no luck. And I still can't remember doing anything to mess it up to such an extent. So now it's stashed away in its nice white box in a cupboard, while I occasionally do a web search, looking for things I haven't tried yet. Ah,...
