Nice, I\' we got my fingers crossed for CPT. I can\'t wait for something like that to hit the mass market. I\' we been flowing pixel qi, liquid vista, color-eink and mirasol displays for some time but prices are way to high, and user products are almost non-existent.

Re: OpenSUSE

I don\'t know about ARMv6, but I know they use pandaboard (OMAP4430 Cortex A9) and efika (i.MX515 Cortex A8) for upcoming openSUSE arm port.

I doubt they will port suse studio images to arm as well. But if they do, this would be best tool for creating Linux images for arm.

I don't know about GLES but I do know (free)GLUT and is pretty easy to use even for beginner programmers. Someone should take a look into it and check if freeglut library compiles on arm.

Re: ARM Repositories

Many Linux distros have some sort of official or non-official arm port. So armel repros are quite common. But unfortunately many of them only support newer cpu-s like arm cortex a8 and a9.

It might be good idea to create some kind of library of free Linux and programming (for beginners) books ripped to mobi format for kindle and pdf for similar devices.
And maybe some sort of downloadable offline reference site (similar to android docs)...
