Fun times with Linux on ARM tablets
By David Clack on May 24, 2011
So it's been awhile, still here.
I'm working with a group of engineers to test Java SE Embedded for ARM on the latest tablets.
We have been working on the process to actually create both the Linux kernel and XFCE desktop, both of which are actually installed into the NAND on the tablet device, not just running from a CF card or SD card.
We have got the process down pretty well now.
Right now we are working on the ViewSonic gTablet a 10.2" Nvidia Tegra 2 powered device with a nice little desktop dock.
Our aim is to just get to a Linux kernel supporting all the hardware, Xorg and a Java aware browser running.
