Thanks for the responsess to my earlier post. I do think using the ipk package manager is the way to go. I have a verdex pro xl6p with a tweener and GPSstix so I do not have network connectivity. I was thinking I could just download whatever ipk files I need to my micro sd card and then install them without network connectivity.
I found the packages I need here: http://www.gumstix.net/feeds/2008/ipk/glibc/armv7a/base/ but it does not look like these are the correct architecture for the Verdex Pro XL6P... could someone tell me where I could find them built for the right architecture?
