SheevaPlug in my hand

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Which Plug Computers are supported by Debian?

There are many different Plug Computer models. The SheevaPlug is the original one and it is well supported. Please check which other models are supported.

How much space do I need to install Debian?

A normal installation of Debian (i.e. base system plus standard components) will take about 400 MB, so a 1 GB USB stick or SD card is enough (even though more is recommended).

Can I buy the SheevaPlug in Europe?

Yes, the SheevaPlug is now also available from New IT in the UK.

Will the SheevaPlug work in Europe?

Yes. The SheevaPlug will work with 110v and 220v. If you buy the SheevaPlug from the US, you can simply remove the US connector and then connect a so called "figure 8" cable. However, NewIT in the UK offers the SheevaPlug with EU 2 pin and UK 3 pin power adapters.
