Dreamplug with box

The Dreamplug is the most recent incarnation of what are known as 'plug computers' - so called due to their small size, not much larger than a standard power supply unit.

A plug computer has several advantages for low-powered uses like web serving or file sharing: it's silent, small and draws very little power. And despite its size it can run a media server or PBX (phone system, more on this soon) without trouble.

More information on plug computers:

Anyway, it turns out this post is around 6 months later than it should be. I first bought the Dreamplug in mid 2011, and spent several weekends working out how to use it as a PBX for our office at work.

It's behaved swimmingly since that time but since a power failure earlier this week my Dreamplug gives a kernel failure and won't boot. I'm in the position of needing to re-install the operating system and the PBX software, update it and recreate the settings I spent several weekends on last year.

This time I will write down what I'm doing as I go, and I will mirror the flash card as a backup once I'm complete.

If you stick around you can follow along.
