    Ah, public is informed now, too.

    My new SD isn't here yet and after holidays I have to work for University and learn for exams.

    Don't know when I will be able to test it.

    It's a great application, even if I can't test it for now.

    Tested in real situation again. Works great.

    I did some corrections, and changed some stuff in the build system to allow SOLEIL to be installed in SL4P.

    No one tried ? :/

    It can work with a straight one, depending of your adapter and/or PC.

    Could work if I connect the pandora to a Ethernet switch?

    Flawlessly. In this case i think a normal cable will be ok.

    You can even boot multiple computers.

    Lovely!

    This sounds like a dream for me - seriously, I dreamed a lot of time with having a handled device which I can connect to other computers and use it all the time --

    I want to try it out, but I don't have any usb-to-Ethernet adaptor. In order to get one which works, would you mind to give me an advice of which one to buy?

    Well, can't really recommand one looking like this [​IMG]

    because it consumes more current than the Wii one.

    I'll soon have brand new from Japan. Will report them here.

    Thanks for the info, 

    I think one with more wire at the usb part is better.

    Is that one yours?

    Yes, you can't use this one on the Pandora without a cable.

    I have three adapters.

    The third is this one [​IMG]

    And it's a piece of crap.

    Something like this belongs in EDs shop.

    I will test the Japan ones soon, maybe tomorrow, but seeing the new trendnet, maybe it's a better choice.

    Working a bit on the "SL4P converter".

    I'll see how things goes this way, but i think i'll have to provide a separate image anyway. Some stuff on the exported NFS rootfs have to be done on a x86. I can provide sub-images for these parts, but it's duplicating even more work.

    I'm also setting a proper way to enable/disable SOLEIL functionality, reverting to SL4P whenever SOLEIL is unneeded.
