Posted by WCD on July 06 2006,06:23Hi, im new to this forum so if this is in the wrong place i apologise,
Ive seen alot of people talking about DSL running off of SD cards in various pieces of harware, including an N-Gage!!. I was wondering if anyone has tried to boot DSL of a memory stick.I have a hunk o junk UX50 running crappy palm OS i was just curious to know if anyone has tried DSL from a Memory Stick.

Yes. It's possible.

Posted by dslfool on July 07 2006,21:50Are you talking about booting the CLIE from the memory stick? Can PDAs such as this one boot other OSs from removable media? I'm certainly not an expert on such things, but I've not heard of PDAs doing this before. Also, I'm guessing the stock Linux kernel in DSL wouldn't boot a system with a Sony CXD2230GA processor without recompiling?
Posted by WCD on July 08 2006,18:15you could very well be right, but i shall give it a go there are certainly a lot of sites that claim theyve got linus to boot onto the NZ series of Clie. as i say i shall have a go anyway.
