Right, at last development has commenced! We have decided to base it on Debian, and at the moment we are experimenting with Debian Potato 2.2r5.
It seems to work perfectly OK, and a few of the scripts have already been made. The first kernel has now become available, and it's main feature is the introduction of a 4bpp framebuffer, oh joy!.
It seems that a member of the PsiLinux project has managed to get X working on the Series 5's big brother, the 5mx, but memory constraints are too high on the 5 for this to happen, so if a GUI is put on the 5, it'll definitely be either PicoGUI or Microwindows. Also, due to the processor not having enough juice in it, the Qt/E and Qtopia ports have been cancelled.
So, we present eTux 1.0 Alpha 1 (version 0.1) to you in the form of a root filesystem (that is still heavily reminiscent of Debian), and a kernel image.
Note - this distribution is at the moment ONLY for Series 5 users.
