Quote from [link]

QUOTE: The Barracuda module runs Familiar Linux. Familiar Linux is a derivative of Debian Linux. Debian Linux has been ported to several ARM platforms, including bast . The reference platform for bast is the Simtec Electronics EB2410ITX Evaluation Board [SNIP] It seems that Reciva used the 'bast' ARM architecture as a base for their own development.

"Bast is a modern ARM 920 board with a 266MHz Samsung processor. It has integrated IDE, USB, Serial, Parallel, audio, video, flash and two ethernet ports. This system has a good bootloader which is also found on the CATS and RiscStation systems."

(bast, cats, and riscstation are evaluation boards by Simtec Electronics) ENDQUOTE
