Hm, I’m building a similar system, and have been looking at the gumstix-directfb-image here:


I saw MicroSD booting here:


For parallels, I like gentoo because of how customizable it is for dev, etc.

While I am waiting for my first verdex XM4-bt system to arrive, can anybody tell me which build I should flash to get the LCD + bt + wifi + i2c active? l


Also, since it has only 16Mb on-board, is it possible to either boot into or use systems files from the micro-SD card?


Finally, I plan on putting together a finely targeted Linux Parallels bubble for my development, so it does not need all the desktop stuff but does need everything for cross-platform development. Which distribution is best for that - any suggestions? Anybody already got a reference bubble?

Just ordered a verdex400-bt, and was wondering if the list of prebuilt software that's available via ipkg is online anywhere?

(planning and whatnot)
