 Subject: 10 August: Getting working GNU/Linux installs on embedded board: IFC6410
 Coming Sunday a few hackers (including me) will gather at TechInc to install
 GNU/Linux on some IFC6410 embedded boards.[0]
 I already have an IFC6410 with a proper GNU/Linux install, but we ordered a few
 more and I want to document the process this time. We'll be with about 4 or 5
 The IFC6410 is an interesting board because it has an open driver for OpenGL and
 OpenGL|ES and is generally quite powerful. Or at least, it was, about a year
 ago. ;-)
 If you have another ARM embedded board that you would like help with (not:
 Raspberry Pi ;-)) then I'm also happy to help out, if I can. I'm very familiar
 with Allwinner devices (A10, A20, cubieboard, lime, etc...) and I'm also
 interested in seeing an NVIDIA Jetson K1 board. ;-)
