Hi all,

I'm new to Linux, but learning stuff all the time...

was just wondering how difficult it would be to port all/most/majority of Backtrack
to the XScale ARM Machines SL-Cxx00 ?

has anyone thought about doing this ?

I would guess the firstmost consideration is storage space:

a) develop 4Gb SDIO driver for whatever kernel is chosen

then proceed with the creation of the software:

cool.gif choose a kernel 2.6 based ARM OS and install it
c) remove any excess software baggage from this install your not going to use
d) load cross-compiler environment into an x86 Machine running a distro like x86 SUSE.
e) load ARM GCC equivalent of your cross compiler to your destiantion Computer
f) setup kernel source tree on your destination computer
g) ARM patch and cross compile kernel for ARM and install on destination Computer
h) obtain all tarballs for all important programs running in the x86 CDROM version
and cross compile them for ARM, then IPK them ready for installation on destination Computer

As you can see, I have an idea of the process, but I dont know how to go about exactly doing this.

this would be ideal, as the Sharp Pocket Computers offer such a lot of portable power in such a small package ?

what say you good people ?

You can build your own images here:

It's easy to do and takes something like two minutes.

If you need to contact the Angstrom folks, use their mailing list. They don't check the forums much/at all.

Hope that helps.
