Didn't find this here yet, but I didn't really search, so forgive me if this is a repeat post. At best, this might renew some interest.

http://www.gumstix.com/


It's got everything we would need at a reasonable price AFAIK ; not much documentation however. If anyone has done this already, maybe some links/notes/screenshots could be posted?

I haven't really seen any screenshots of Xorg running yet, but it's supposedly in one of the available ROM images. with matchbox/kdrive

EDIT: gumstix was mentioned way back here over two years ago along with the coLibri module which has been upgraded now to the pxa320 @ 806MHz, but doesn't come with OpenEmbedded.

The main thing that's stopping me from buying gumstix I guess is a general distaste for xscale compared to x86... (thinking mini-ITX, 'cause I still haven't gotten one yet)

EDIT2: mini-ITX is too big. (saving to buy a robostix combo)

I was vaguely thinking that a mintyboost could be hacked to power the gumstix, and a large altoids or camel cigarette tin could be used as a starter case for the complete mobile setup.

At a glance, all that would need to be done is change the usb port to a 4mm coaxial, or buy the $10 converter. I've been kinda busy, so finding the parts on http://www.digikey.com/ hasn't really panned out just yet.
