I got my Soekris net5501 today and immediately started checking it out and installing OpenBSD on it. The short story is that they couldn't deliver the hard disc mounting kit until next week, but it works flawlessly so far.

I wrote some things about it on my blog - in Danish! but I guess you can recognize the dmesg output and the openssl speed readings anyway.

  Two other boards that I happen to have here using the same AMD Geode LX-800 / CS5546 combo work fine as well: The WebDT 186 and the PC-Engines ALIX.1B board.

Not all devices are supported, though, on AMD Geode LX systems, eg. the wathdog timer.

AMD Geode LX is supported since OpenBSD 4.0-stable (4.0-release will not boot).

  Just made a dmesg using the GENERIC kernel, not the install one! soekris-5501-dmesg-GENERIC.txt

  Would these be able to saturate a 1Gbit ethernet connection if acting as a simple home router?

  Any reason soekris 4801 is way faster compared to 5501 on openssl speed benchmark?
I get almost identical to 4801 results on my WRAP, so hifn is not the reason.

  Geode LX compared to AMD K6-III 400? (mod -4/38)

  I can't find any absolute performance numbers for the Geode LX. How fast is it compared to a K6-III?

  SATA port (mod 0/34)
by Julian Leyh (68.33.104.179) (julian@vgai.de) on Fri Jun 22 22:43:46 2007 (GMT)
  I received my Soekris net5501-70 with case today and I must say, I love it :)

The only thing I don't like is the SATA port... It's unusable with the case, because if you put something in it, it's higher than the case :(

Does anybody know how I could solve this? Maybe a short cable that has a tiny plug?
