It's great to hear that these are pretty well supported now.
In standby, with NetBSD running and a Sandisk 4GB micro cruzer usb
device plugged, it uses around 11.5 W. It's ok, still I expected a bit
less from this device. I've read great things about the Sheevaplugs
using just 2/3 watts, so I thought this could be as good as the Sheeva.
I was wrong. Anyway, it's ok. I've then decided to do some more tests,
and I installed Debian on the same memory device. Same conditions, using
Debian, the Dockstar requires 9 W. So 2.5 W less than NetBSD. Is there
anything I am missing or is it just that Linux has a more complete power
What's the power consumption of the Dockstar when the CPU is utilized
100%? If Debian goes up to 11.5 watts but NetBSD doesn't change, we know
what it is.
