After having read about the board a bit and getting courious, at LinuxTag 2008 i could try the real hardware for the first time. They had a demo running which showed a full Enlightenment desktop and everything seemed quite fast. I would guess the performance is similar to a P3 1GHz. The demo was based on OpenEmbedded, but with a system that is as fast as a few year old desktop system, i would of course prefer to run Debian.

I've just booked my plane tickets for my first DebConf and if everything goes according to plan, i'll be there for the whole camp and conference. During the camp i'll work on getting E17 into unstable and on kvm/libvirt integration if there's still time left.
Some of the E17/EFL libraries are currently available in experimental. E-DBus and Efreet are next, then we can upload E17 itself.

Today i've recieved a mail from James Troup saying that my Debian account has just been created! This means my NM-Process took about 16 months (6 months in "Awaiting DAM Approval").
I'd like to thank Christoph Haas as my long term Sponsor and Advocate. He has been a tremendous help with all sorts of Debian and packaging releated questions. I also want to thank Christoph Berg for being my Application Manager and making that part of the NM-Process fun. :)
My first upload will be for BitBake to include a patch pull from upstream SVN.

The 22C3 in Berlin is coming up and after helping a friend convert his notebook to dm-crypt/lvm, i'm ready to try it myself :) It was not quite straightforward, so i'll describe the necessary steps here.
When i'm done, i'll have two physical partitions (hda1 and hda2). hda1 is /boot and must be unencrypted because it contains the kernel and initrd. hda2 is an encrypted LVM physical volume which contains / and all other volumes.
Before we begin some packages need to be installed: yaird (to build the initrd) cryptsetup-luks (supports a partition header which containes the encrypted key) lvm2 (to manage volumes) yaird and lvm2 are in debian and cryptsetup-luks is avaible from http://luks.endorphin.org/ (a debian repository is at http://einsteinmg.dyndns.org/debian/).

If you're running Debian unstable and have updated recently, your eth interfaces may be numbered differently now. This is because udev is now started earlier (at 05) than module-init-tools (at 20). If the order in /etc/modules is different from what udev detects, you get changed interface numbers.
So what can we do to prevent this from happening again?

We (ATekoN e.V.) have just received three 300GB SATA disks and a 4 port controller for our mirror. We'll install them in the next days and migrate the data away from the old SCSI disks.
We'll have about 400GB available after removing the old disks, so we'll probably mirror all debian installer images again. This is also good for the Kanotix project, as they will have more space to store beta releases.
The disks are Maxtor MaXLine III 300GB and the conroller is a Promise SATA 300 TX4, which should work well with Linux.
