My first try didn't success because of outdated status of the sources on
It's now fixed and I have the deb source of debian installer up to date
to play with.

I have read curvedbrain.org/2009/03/10/install-debian-dns323/ but I have
take another approach with qemu-binfmt and polystrap.

I will give a try with a cross build.

The device is the IcyBox IB-6220-B.
The factory u-boot annouce it as a DB-88F6281A-BP LE.
Its a sheevaplug like device with 256 MiB RAM/NAND only.

It was cloned, bricked, unbricked, tortured and still alive !

I also found a bug to report to the u-boot list, and another
configuration error which make openocd unusable.

Now I have to take some times to share all I discovered with and about
this device.

Serial u-boot recovery, jtag rescue tips, security troubles, customizing
and leaving the factory firmware, and its hidden vpn feature !
