I have a verdex xm4 with a netmicro-SD and console-vx boards. My
console vx does not have the connector for attaching an lcd panel. The
footprint for the connector is there, does anyone know the correct part
number for the connector? (digikey, etc.) As an alternative, would it be
possible to connect a serial graphic display using one of the 8 pin
serial connectors on the board?
As far as operating systems go, I use linux on my desktop at home and am
getting to know my way around it fairly well. That being said, I dont
really know how to "use" the gumstix. I would like to connect a screen
and keyboard to the gumstix, but dont know what to do after that. This
is the first micro controller project I have messed around with, so I
apologize if my questions are hard to understand. Can I install a small
footprint linux distro on an sd card, and just direct it to use the
kernel image on the gumstix? or would it be possible to flash a small
distribution directly to the gumstix itself?
