THLinux and Gumstick Gentoo Updates

As per my THLinux announcement, I have created a homepage for it. Now, don't laugh at the formatting of the page please. Remember, I'm an engineer... not a graphic design artist! But there are some basic gotchas and download link. Right now, the safest thing to do if you want to just try it out is to execute "#./build_thlinux; ./install_thlinux /dev/sd{a,b,c,d}1 {-g}"

sd{a,b,c,d}1 is your thumb drive device that you'd like the rootfs directory dumped into, and the {-g} will install and setup grub on the thumb drive(provided you have grub-install on your host computer).

THLinux TO DO:

  • Add build/install support for "nslookup" as it is broken in my busybox build (will come from bind 9.4.0)
  • Add elinks/lynx for web browsing
  • Look at adding TinyX and Matchbox for GUI support
  • Investigate Cross-Compiled installs... (this could get very interesting... )

Gumstick Gentoo TO DO:
  • Create THLinux-like build scripts to construct Gumstick Gentoo with a simple build script
  • Investigate the experimental uclibc-based Gentoo for shrinking image even more.
