Re: Official image and QEMU?

FYI. I'm running Debian in qemu which runs in Debian which runs in Virtual Box which runs in Windows XP... It works except the mouse, so I have to use keybord shortcuts instead if I use LXDE.

Running qemu in Debian directly the mouse works.

If you don't have one yet, you'd better take one of the SD cards reported to work.

That will be easy to do.

Using Debian you can use debootstrap to get a minimal image (no GUI only terminal access), then install the packages you want (apache2 / ngnix, mysql, php...) using apt-get.

Eventually they will agree, and as some mentioned DeviceTree is part of this effort.

Linaro and Ubuntu plan to have a unified ARM Linux kernel, that is one binary that can run on any ARM (Cortex) boards, by 2014/2015.
