I found this today :

http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/unsta...ollie/20070422/

Which seems to be a one day old new angstrom distribution for the Collie. They are in the form of a few files I am not familiar with. I can't find a "how to", can anyone shed any light on how to test this new toy??

You don't need this on collie. Just rename the files and flash with reset+CD as usual.

I noticed that there are new Angstrom images that were posted earlier this month. Are any of these functional? There is an X11 and a glibc test image. Could any of these be used with current Angstrom software?

Anything that is not working is documented in the bug tracker taking the collie as an example. Support really varies greatly by device. Anything C3x00 has been in daily use by a number of devs for many months or even well over a year. Angstrom targets a lot of devices, some are fully usable, others not at this point in time.

Rolf, or whoever can answer;

I have been watching the Angstrom page, especially supported devices portion. Under the Collie portion, it says it is ready for users (I assume this means for end-users). Yet, when I click on the ZaurusCollie link on the supported devices matrix, it shows nearly half the functions in red. The supported device matrix was last updated recently and the ZaurusCollie page was updated a month ago. Also, it has a question mark under "bootloader" category. So, what does this all mean. Is it [the Collie] ready for casual use? Also, is the Collie classified as ARM-OABI or ARM4V? What is the distinction?

Thank you for your help.
