Hello there!

It's with great pleasure that we introduce to you GoboLinux 003 for
ARM CPUs. This is the first ARM release compiled entirely with our
Bootstrap tool, which uses the infrastructure offered by
ChrootCompile.

This version has been compiled entirely with soft-float, meaning that
there are no floating point instructions in the executables: all the
hard work is left to GCC libraries. Optimization has been done for
Xscale processors (armv5te), but it should work on other processors of
the same family with no problems.

This release is being shipped in two parts: a simple initrd and a more
complete environment with a graphical desktop and end-user tools.
Follows a description of the packages included on each of them:

We're still setting up mirrors for the ARM port. For now, the
distribution can be downloaded from our major ARM source at
http://gobo.calica.com/gobolinux-iso-arm .

Some initial explanation on usage, installation and customization can
also be found at http://embedded.gobolinux.org .

Again, I'd like to take the time to thanks the guys at Tecnequip in
São Paulo/Brazil for offering their platforms and making this port
possible.

Cheers!
