Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I download the Emdebian distribution?

The project is still working on tools, mechanisms and infrastructure to build a distro, but we do now have a couple of minimal working distributions you can try.

EmdebianSlind is a pure dpkg-cross based system, where the built filesystem is NFS-mounted on the target to complete installation.

The other is a distro which uses scratchbox for the cross-building: [http://stage.maemo.org/ Ed Bartosh's work]. Emdebian is in the process of deciding which of these approaches to use, or combining their good bits if possible.
