After playing around with my Z for only a few weeks Im now looking for a way to dive into developing.
Gobolinux http://gobo.kundor.org/wiki/Main_Page seems similar to gentoo. they have announced an arm port of their distribution http://gobo.kundor.org/wiki/GoboLinux_Embe...g_GoboLinux-ARM
complete with a seemingly nice toolchain. Is there a HOWTO or something to build/use a kernel for my zaurus 860 with this distribution. Or should I let my fingers away, if I need a HOWTO for such an experiment? :-)

Perhaps I can combine this question with a more general one: I've successfully build some applications in my cacko/Xqt setup but the 2.4 kernels seems to get old and Id like to have a 2.6er for the reports of snappier operation. What toolchain and distribution would you recommend?

Waiting for the next pdaxrom? Angstrom? They seem to do a lot of things "the right way".
Something else like gentoo/gobo? Is there any way to streamline repositories, so that say a packages compiled with softfloat can easily be recompiled as a hardfloat one and can be used in different roms?

Any pointers to documentation of the current status of Z developement with respect to setting up toolchains and roms are highly appreciated.

And by the way: Thx to everybody in here! The Z community is a nice place to be.
