Dear MIPS People,

I couldn't resist buying a NanoNote
(http://sharism.cc/products/ben-nanonote/).  It looks quite fun but I'm not
a great fan of OpenWRT, which it ships with by default.  Can I install

I thought I would find some discussion of this here already, but it seems

http://www.emdebian.org/ may by appropos.

Well it has 2 GB of flash, which should be comfortable for a regular Debian installation I think. The 32 MB of RAM is more of a constraint, as Stefan pointed out in his message, though I have a number of NSLU2s that function satisfactorily with the same amount.

I'm going to see if I can debbootstrap it i.e. with its existing OpenWRT-derived kernel first. If anyone has any thoughts about that i.e. issues that I might run into, please let me know. I'll report back if I'm successful.

Thanks,  Phil.
