The GuruPlug Plus uses a Marvell Kirkwood 6281A1, 1.2GHz processor and the Sheeva runs a 1.2 GHz Marvell Kirkwood 6281. The former is billed as an "ARM-compatible CPU (aka Feroceon)".

I am trying to install BT5 ARM on both the Sheeva and Guru Plus (just for jollys) but can anyone see any reason why it will *certainly* fail on either of these two processors? I haven't invested much time in doing this yet, and before I actually start to care it would be good to know if it is outright futile.

Thanks for any thoughts. Naturally I will post any positive results.
