Distribution with framebuffer drivers, network drivers, and little else
I am looking for a Linux distribution with the following properties:
1) Runs on i586 compatible systems
2) Fits in less than 32MB of (flash) disk space (uncompressing to RAM is okay)
3) Has network drivers
4) Has framebuffer drivers
5) Is available in pre-built form
I intend to run a single application that pulls data from the network, formats it, and displays it. I have a few embedded x86 boards I would like it to work on. I can get a list of the graphics cards and network cards that would need to be supported at minimum, but I would prefer a system that just works with any reasonably common card that's out there.
I would prefer to avoid having to build the whole thing from source. Something I could just install, configure, and add my files to would be much easier. I've tried ttylinux, and it came close to meeting my needs, but the i486 version didn't have the drivers I needed, and the i686 version didn't boot (no cmov).
