my sister bought a 7 inches netbuk preinstalled with Windows CE 5.0,
she wants linux os on it. may i know what is best linux os for ARM AK7802 CPU, 260 MHz and 128 MB RAM. maybe ubuntu distro? i mean specific download link for images. i search it in google but im confused when it comes to choosing arm cpu versions.
thanks salasi for the tip, then i will rephrase my question.. may i know how to install any linux distro ported on ARM platform that will work in ARM AK 7802?(link to tutorials) ,my sister just want to surf the net using linux. the reason for this is that windows ce 5.0 pre-installed in her netbook does not support her usb broadband kit, but i had it working in my ubuntu linux just by installing udev-extras, wvdial and changing some setting in wvdial.conf. so i thought if linux can install on her netbuk maybe i can set it to work on usb broadband.
Running on ARM is no problem.. the problem is installing on embedded devices. For this reason many people go for dedicated embedded distributions that may (or may not) have images tailored to specific devices. Perhaps have a look at angstrom. http://www.angstrom-distribution.org.
