You're welcome. I don't know much about the OpenRD nor about the
SheevaPlug, but are they able to run the -marvell kernels? What was the
last version of the kernel that worked for you?

What filesystems do you use? Do you use any (para)virtualization? What
about addon hardware that you have? Any USB dongles? Anything that you
can think of? Sound?

Do you use NFS? (I do) What kind of compressed ramdisk do you use? The
loaded modules that you have with lsmod would be nice to know.

There's no guarantee, but I may try. Very low probability, but not zero
