Thanks for the offer, but not sure it would help: GlobalScale is
backlogged on the production of both SheevaPlugs and GuruPlugs,
so I doubt a new order would arrive any earlier than the 20 units
already coming -- plus the local builders are connected directly
to the hub by GigE. (Update today: GlobalScale says the plugs
will ship the last week of June).
I told our Marvell contact about this this morning, and he immediately
drove over to us to drop off a loan of three SheevaPlugs and a GuruPlug;
we can put them online behind Gig-E on MIT's network and give out access
if it'll help tide things over until your units show up. (Kudos to
Marvell for the fast loan!)
We used qemu-system-arm to do initial feasibility testing last
semester. On a decent Intel box, it runs at about 10% of the
speed of a Sheeva/Guru when executing build tasks.
*nod* That's a shame.
Perfect, thanks! Looks like there are a few dozen packages you
use that are missing in F12 ARM.
Ah, do you have the diff to look over?
