Success, Linux kernel running on ZT-180 10" ARM slate

Hi All,

 Long time no chat.

 I've been working with a colleague to get a Linux distro running on a 10" ARM slate called the ZT-180.

 Last week he actually made a custom Linux come up on the slate.

 We have been working with the OpenEmbedded and Angstrom distro's.

The ethernet and wifi are working fine, now we need to get the video working and the rest of the distro built.

The ZT-180 is a 1Ghz ARM with 10" touchscreen slate, at about $200 US it's been a fun project to understand how to build Linux for ARM.

I would like to ask if you wrote the entire kernel from sratch or you just created a suitable rootfs working with the kernel from zenithink, like many others on web ?

No, we built our own kernel.

We have moved on to an Nvidia Tegra 2 tablet now.
