Iyonix ARM Linux install CDs availableBy Chris Williams. Published: 11th Aug 2003, 16:39:58 | Permalink | Printable
Debian install also caters for RiscPCs, Netwinders and othersPeter Naulls has made available today a set of Debian install CDs for ARM based systems. The CDs can be used to install complete working Debian Woody GNU/Linux systems on Iyonixes, RiscPCs, Netwinders and similar hardware. The installed Linux kernel is version 2.4.19, 2.4.19-rmk7-ds2-pn2 specifically.
Users intending to install Linux on an XScale powered Iyonix should first make themselves aware of the status of the Iyonix Linux project.
A single install CD can be purchased which provides a basic system or a full six CD set can be ordered. A month's worth of email support is included in the pricing of the CDs, telephone support costs a bit extra.
Peter informs us that the support documentation on the Iyonix Linux and Debian ARM resources websites is "undergoing revision" and it's expected that the sites will be updated in the next few days.
Don't forget that when installing Linux, you'll need a separate drive to install it on or alternatively, you should back up your data prior to repartitioning. Also, we're told CJE Micro's can prepare a harddisc for the ARM Linux install in new machines - contact them for more on that.
