I've got someone here who'd like a meeting with Debian ARM developers
in the Cambridge area. The topic is somewhat close to what Wookey
mentioned on the Debian ARM list a while again regarding his meeting
with ARM. That is, potential sponsorship of Debian projects.
It will be a very much informal affair, probably in some Cambridge pub
sometime next week (weekend is not out of the question), and although
the focus is ARM, anyone with a general interest in Debian development
would be encouraged to also come.
If you're interested in coming, and there's any day/time you can't
make, drop me an email, and I'll see what I can do to keep everyone
Is this support for Debian-arm based PC and PDA's only, or will the support
include many of the arm cores, that are now available from a myriad of
such as microcontroller manufacturers, System on Chip vendors and IP
core vendors for FPGA?
My interests are more aligned with Debian-arm for development tools and
of building kernels and applications for embedded systems, particularly
Arm as recently acquired Trisend, a company that offers a System On Chip,
including an arm-7. Will support for this product line be included as
part of the
debian-arm effort? We, have several products out on this SOC, but,
support for the Microsoft based tools are very weak, to the point that
get customer's to risk a new product design on that processor, currently.
Any infomation Arm wants to provide on that SOC, and hundreds of other ARM*
offerings, for Embedded support, via Debian, is most welcome, in addition to
a roadmap for Arm +2.6.x embedded kernels.
Transient commercial tool offerings, are not very reassuring to
are considering ARM Projects. ARM+2.6_embedded_linux_kernel+Debian
would go a long way to atrracting more converts to the arm families of
