I just looked at the Web site you mentioned in post #3, above, and it's clear from that site that the XLinux
distribution is primarily intended for installation on Vortex embedded processors, and that it uses Busybox
as its shell. Almost all the documentation on the site assumes
that you will compile your code on some other system an import the resulting binary to the Vortex-based device. (And they do provide fairly clear instruction of how to write such code.)
, but don't recommend, that, if you want to work exclusively on a Vortex based system, that you install a Puppy
Linux version, in install the necessary tool-chain under that.They do provide source code for drivers you might need to get Puppy
to wag its tail for you.
They do explicitly state that they do not
provide a tool chain for XLinux
can be installed on a USB drive, so maybe you could do that, and see if you could boot your system from the USB port.
