Hi all,
after some work there is finally an improvement for the most critical  
missing parts for the JZ4730 based MINIPCs (available under different  
brands e.g. Letux 400). We have fixed:

* missing touchpad button driver
* issue with RTC / i2c bus driver
* device did not power off after 'shutdown -h now'
* correct bootstrap of Debian Lenny base install (no X11 predefined  
but apt-get install is your friend...)

The kernel & rootfs can be installed on a two-partition SD Card and  
can (only) be booted from there (it is not yet ready for permanently  
flashing). More fixes will come to make it bullet proof and user  
friendly (e.g. LEDs should indicate caps/num lock etc.). Please also  
note that sound is not working correctly.

To keep things systematic we have two separate projects

a) Kernel

Hardware Infos:

b) Debian Lenny

Participation is welcome.

BTW: CDC Ethernet/USB connection of an Openmoko Freerunner works out  
of the box following instructions at [1]
