I have incorporated VncPlug into GuiPlug. If a Usb Monitor is detected at boot it is used and if a monitor is not found VNC Server is started instead.

I have included all the latest Debian Squeeze updates and it now uses kernel 2.6.36.2
Update: version 2.4 uses kernel 2.6.36.3

The image is available for download here.

http://www.newit.co.uk/drive-images/Sheevaplug/GuiPlug/ 

Anyone with a NewIT Multiboot Sheeva can use the image by simply decompressing and using the DD command to copy it onto an SD card which is at least 4Gb or it is available preloaded from the NewIT shop.
Any of the NewIT Usb monitors can simply be added and will be configured automatically.

I have tested quite a few SD cards with this and I can recommend the Transcend 4Gb SLC, Micro SD's and Kingston Class4 SD's.

Booting from an eSata drive is by far the quickest way to use the Guiplug and I have documented how to do that here: http://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,796.0.html


Instructions for using a Vnc connection can be found here.

Will it work with Sheevaplug?  I have already set it up to boot from SD card.

Hi twinclouds,

Yes it does work with the sheevaplug.

I have uploaded a new version (2.4) as squeeze has now gone live, included kernel is now 2.6.36.3
If you wish to use SSH you will need to add openssh-server, I have left this out to prevent key duplication.

I bought the eSata Sheevaplug multiboot with a SD debian squeeze. I installed other software and already configured it for my needs. Is there a guide to what have you done to the SD debian squeeze to make it a GuiPlug SD? What software have you installed? For me is to costly to start from scratch using the new image.

Thanks
Matteo

Hi James ,

Seem that the V 2.4 doesn't work with the Transcend 4GB anymore ?

I used with V 2.3  , and all the bytes are the same with Transcend , but with V 2.4  , data bytes have changed .

could you tell me which SD card you are using with Huh

Thank you very much .

Penny2524,

I have based the image on the 4Gb MicroSD card which is the smallest we sell at the moment. I would recommend you try the Integral Endurance SLC cards which are extremely fast and also being SLC are very reliable.

Just a question James, when I ordered my GuruPlug Server Plus, I've also added one 8gb card, if I dd the 4gb image, how can I use the space left off the dd process?

is it possible from parted or any other partition editor? or some other strange plugy-way!?

You can use 'gparted' or here is a link to do it manually.
