Porting Askozia to ARM (general discussion)
« on: June 02, 2010, 11:02:41 AM »
Hello folks!
Let discuss the general procedure how to port Askozia to ARM architecture.
Let compile together different bits of information and let start from kernel.
What kernel to take? This http://www.linux-arm.org/git ?
Or this one? http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/khilman/linux-davinci.git;a=summary
Or what?

The kernel will depend on the actual target device. Most manufacturers deliver a patched kernel source and a custom configuration for their devices. Porting to ARM will probably not allow a "generic arm" image which will run everywhere so a specific device must be ported to. I'd like to start with the sheevaplug since it seems to be quite popular.

A lot of people is waiting for this... Please, let me know when ready to betatest ;)

The Raspberry pi is out now and should have enough power to run Asterisk.
Anybody working on this allready?
Raspberry Pi is only 25€ and I would like to make a remote office Askozia on it.

Much of the horse power in Raspberry Pi is inside the GPU so it shows a quite good experience for multimedia applications but is not not so good for a server-like appliance, e.g. average audio transcoding performance are really worst than an alix board... a video phone on the TV may be a better choice  >:(

However some people, me too, already tried to ride that challenge:
