How much disk space is really needed on a director? Could we set up a micro dist that would include enough to work as a director and still fit in < 128 meg?
There are some mostly working BitBake receipies for the orbiter, that somebody was doing up to have a Zaurus as a director, so maybe Open Embedded would work as a starting point?
I know, I know.. Do it myself...
On that note... What are the critical packages that need to be installed and working for a MediaDirector that can still stream media. But, don't hold your breath waiting for me to roll it :-)
I have a couple of RCA RM-4100 (AKA MSNTV2) boxes that are in the process of having LinuxBIOS ported to them, that will soon be perfect for MediaDirectors, They have 1Meg of
BIOS memory to play with, and come with a 64meg CF card, that can be replaced. To give you an idea.. One of the LinuxBIOS folks has installed a complete working Linux with an X Server in a 2 Meg BIOS chip.
