Here a pretty cool looking Arm Cortex dev kit, which
run Ubuntu:

Thanks,

I have cross compiled 621 packages for the beagle
http://tinderbox.dev.gentoo.org/embedded/beagle/Packages
cd .. ; for the binary pkgs if you want those.

It all works fine using the following toolchain combo and
"sys-devel/crossdev-wrappers".

cross-armv7a-softfloat-linux-gnueabi/binutils-2.18-r4
cross-armv7a-softfloat-linux-gnueabi/gcc-4.3.2
cross-armv7a-softfloat-linux-gnueabi/glibc-2.8_p20080602
cross-armv7a-softfloat-linux-gnueabi/linux-headers-2.6.27-r2

Thanks! I'll check that out. I notice "softfloat"... so does that mean
there is no support yet for the hardware floating point?
