Anyone on this list have a SheevaPlug


#1

I just saw on slashdot an announcement of a interesting device,
SheevaPlug, which is roughly the size of a large wall-wart, and
boasts a 1.2GHz ARM9 like CPU, 512M ram, with 512M flash, USB 2.0,
and a GbE port.

Anyone on this list happen to have one?

No, but the ARM9 has no floating point support. Get a Beagle/Overo :slight_smile:
It still might be interesting to run Gnuradio on, but it will take lots
of work to convert the floating point to the ARM9 “dsp” instructions.

If you are still interested, I’m pretty sure Angstrom is running on it,
and I explain how to get gnuradio running.
