What is Best OS for PC for NSLU2/debian/arm development?
I've been trying to install debian on my PC for the purpose of
cross-compiling NSLU2/debian kernels and developing NSLU2 applications.
Unfortunately, all the PC debian installations died three months ago so I
shelved the project. I just downloaded debian etch 4.0R0 and tried again and
go the same kernel panic on my PC.
Knoppix, Ubuntu, SuSE and Fedora seem to install fine. Are any of these
