Ok linux fans, my current server is getting a bit long in the tooth and definatly taking up WAY too much power than it should. So in the name of saving the planet im going to upgrade it this will also give me somthing to do on my time off from work. What i want to use is a "guruPlug* "(when it becomes avaliable to buy) however it runs a Maxwell ARM SoC (system on chip). Now i know that i can install Debian on it (my current distro of choice for the server) but im a little stumped about what exactly the ARM flavour of Debian is. Is it, A) a version of linux with a mystical install procedure but once completed exactly the same as regular X86 debian for installing and configuring packages (such as DNSMasq, BIND, IPTables etc.) or B) so blooming complicated im going to need to learn Assembly in order for it to power on. Id really like it to be A) as then ill have a very low powered gateway with an external HDD set installed on it for the media server! Assuming of course i can get the eSATA port multiplyer to work AND the little beast has enough guts to run SAMBA + QoS packet shaping at the same time. * GuruPlug is the next version of SheevaPlug but with 2x Gig Ethernet, USB, eSATA, WiFi, Bluetooth and an SD reader (where id install the OS) and sipping the miniscule power of 5Watts! http://www.newit.co.uk/shop/proddetail.php?prod=GuruPlug-ServerPlus Thats not an advertisement, i just like the idea of it and to give you lot a sence of what the hell im talking about!
