Differences in Debian arm versions for NSLU - homework for LUG talk
I appreciate this is cheeky :) I've to prepare a talk for my local LUG
for Tuesday next.
I've got a couple of NSLU2's here - I've installed OpenSlug and Debian
armel a few times on Slugs before. I've read the nslu2-linux.org website
a few times and looked briefly at the Debonaras pages.
Can anybody help me to explain in more depth the differences between
Debian versions? Is armeb effectively dead or did it just morph into
one of the versions needed for Debonaras?
Can anybody explain in words of one syllable what the EABI change means?
[I've now got two nslu2 again so would be willing to participate in
testing installs and so on :) ] Is the EABI version installable easily
The latest Linksys firmware apparently understands NTFS and may include
an lpd - so there is arguably less point for a complete newbie to decide
to re-flash his Slug and the need for Unslung is possibly no longer
there. Comments, anybody?
This talk is to a technical audience - I'm going to make the point that
the Slug is an ideal embedded system to practice on and a deal easier to
find than a specialist board from the usual suppliers.
It's also a good introduction to ARM in general and it's _literally_
cool to have a fanless, silent system running at about 3.5W consumption
Can anybody help with the more detailed/Debian specific aspects of my
homework please? :)
