Hello Ash,

Thank you for your reply,

Now I am convinced that I will stay with the overo line :-)

I appreciate !

There is woefully little about the development environment at this
point but the primary focus has been on getting a kernel that works
well with the duoVero: http://gumstix.org/access-source-code.html
At this point, I'd recommend DuoVero COMs for those who are
comfortable adding their own meta-layer to a oe-core build for DuoVero
or those who specifically want the OMAP4430.
Better software support is underway!

The Yocto Project is an umbrella project that includes OE.  A lot of
the technology is the same between oe-classic and the
oe-core+meta-layers version currently in use.

Yes---native compilation works on DuoVero too.

For the hardware guys, this is the best source so far:

It is definitely possible to compile on the duoVero COM.
