SheevaPlug

The SheevaPlug Development Kit, as sold to me by NewIT in the UK ( http://www.newit.co.uk/shop/products.php?cat=5 ).

  • Marvell Kirkwood SoC 88F6281
  • Marvell Feroceon ARMv5TE 1200MHz processor
  • 512MB DDR2 RAM
  • 512MB NAND Flash
  • Marvell Fast Ethernet controller
  • 1x SDHC slot
  • 1x USB 2.0 port (for adding USB peripherals)
  • 1x mini-USB 2.0 port (for serial access to SheevaPlug)
  • Reset button
NewIT sold the SheevaPlug with Ubuntu 9.04 on an 8GB SDHC card.

Here I describe what I did to make the SheevaPlug into a router/firewall... SheevaPlug:Ubuntu Router/Firewall

Follow the instructions here to add the JTAG board as a USB serial device. Note that the OS X 10.6 (snow leopard) drivers work in 10.7 (lion) too:

Once the FTDI drivers are loaded I can connect to the JTAG using screen:

screen /dev/tty.usbserial-FTT0GSKVB 115200

Simple screen commands:
  • Quit screen: Ctrl - a + k
  • Detach screen: Ctrl - a + d
  • Re attach to running screen session: screen -r
  • Serial port status: Ctrl - a + i
