Camargo says he succeeded in getting Debian Linux to run on his board, and he has published an interesting paper (PDF download) describing the process. He first used Harmon's loader and dataflash patch, both modified to suit his board's hardware addresses, to copy U-boot 1.1.2 and a Linux kernel to flash memory. The kernel was based on 2.6.14 sources, patched for the Atmel processor, and built using GNU tools and Dan Kegel's Cross-toolchain. Camargo next used Debian's debootstrap program to download the ARM-Debian distribution, which he then copied to an SD card for use with the board.
