where does it belong ?
By your bed: Fall asleep to a favorite internet music station; wake up to a zen gong, a news podcast, or Pandora Radio.
In the kitchen: Consult your Google Calendar in the morning, check the weather, and cook to streaming internet music.
On your desk: Watch your photos stream by, follow your friends on Facebook or Twitter, or get alerted to that craigslist find you’ve been waiting for.
The first thing that I would like to do is to install Linux on this nice and little device. There are two ways to accomplish this task :
1) get Debian Lenny running in a chroot with X-Windows and touchscreen support. Here there is a detailed tutorial :
2) leave the current Chumby setup 'untouched',booting into Linux from Linux. This is how it can be done :
And this is definitevely another interesting tool that reboot.pro members should knows.
Bootload allows booting of Linux and other OS kernels from within Linux itself on any TS-7000 ARM computer.
