OK, My linux box blew up (literally the caps on the MB went boom) about 6 months ago. I don't have the cash to rebuild it and don't really have room on my family PC to set up dual boot. So I am considering building a knoppix type Live CD with zaurus toolchains, kernel source, and whatever else development I can get my hands on.

As I was considering this it occurred to me that there may be other users who this could benefit. So tell me would you use this? What can I add to it to make it more useful.

If there isn't interest I won't bother in making it polished and well laid out.

Also If I do complete it and need to distribute it, does ELSI have enough storage/bandwidth to accomodate a 200-700MB image? Could anybody else host? Or would I be better off soliciting the $1 or so cost to burn/mail a cd?

If anything else fails, I'll host it for you smile.gif

As for the question, I don't think you can fit the whole of OE on it, so I don't have any use for it. But maybe you can make that a DVD? Probably a tad much to DL for many people...

Cheers

That's cool! I never knew that existed. I'll take a look tonight and see if it's what I need, may need some updates tho.....

I hadn't even looked at the size of the OE stuff yet, but if necessary I can build a DVD. If the DL is too much to host I suppose I can start a bittorrent link, or if desired I am willing to burn/ship DVDs for the cost of the media plus shipping.

I am more interested in contributing to the community that has kept my 5500 alive and kicking.
