I have three different brand of SD cards all ranging from 4-16 gigs I have tried and failed with various file systems - both the one you provided and ones I've created.

Ended up having to go out of town this weekend - can't test the ext2 until I get back on Monday.

I've now uploaded the image of my SD card to http://www.dt309.com/assets/trimslice-debian.sd.bz2

For the benefit of anyone else who wants to try this image, write it to a 4GB+ SD card with these commands:
Code:
bunzip2 trimslice-debian.sd
dd if=trimslice-debian.sd of=/dev/mmcblk<n>


If that doesn't work, then I suspect it must be something else such as uBoot and/or its configuration variables.

Thanks for sharing again - downloading this new image to give it a go. Will report back in the next few days.

This image works! Whats the login information for it?

OK - so I've got Debian booting to a TTY and I can login, still not getting any video out of the HDMI though (not a show stopper really, I just need to SSH into the little guy, video would be nice though).

I installed the three .deb packages in the trimslice repo onto the Debian ARMEL, installed Xorg/E17/nodm and I copied over the xorg.conf from the maverick install.

Anything else I am missing to get a GUI out of this thing?

On arch, I installed these
xf86-video-fbdev openbox xorg-xinit dbus
Then I would start with
xinit /usr/bin/(in my case lxsession)

I'm glad this later image is working for you.

Sorry for not getting back with the login info for that image, but I'd rather not share any passwords. I would suggest using the init=/bin/bash kernel parameter trick so you can reset the passwords.

SSH should be installed, and will probably be configured to only accept DSA public/private keys for non-root users. Getting the public key into the keyring (~/.ssh/authorized_keys) should be really easy if you have your null modem cable connected.

I'm not bothering with video as I'm primarily interested in using it as a low power email and web server.

No worries, I already got in and reset all the passwords - thanks for sharing the image.

Like I said, I don't really need a GUI for personal usage, but if I can get it working I'd love to prepare an easily installable, fairly generic Debian image for other people to use.

And here is a relevant snipped from the above mentioned log file:

Something wrong with the drivers I have going? Am I not able to simply install the xorg packages from the Trimslice Ubuntu repo? Shoudl I be using something else instead?

I don't know if you installed the fbdev I suggested, or if it works.
If you copied the uBuntu xorg, you may hard float drivers

Are you hardfloat? Probably.
Look in the Developer's private zone area.
