This is a good news!
Myself is the boss of myself, and in these project I'm responsible of the software platform at all while my friend / project partner done the hardware project based on my idea, based (2nd level) to the ea3250. The starting point is that the board I am working to develop is those of embedded artists, but it is too expansive against a low cost software and hardware integration platform. I have several product projects to develop on the new board as I am ready with the linux + graphic environment.
So, I need to be sure - reasonable sure - that the choice can be a long term choice. I took a look to your Pengutronix development platform and as I read it seems interesting because very open. As this toolchain has the problems you mentioned, ltib has other problems. If you plan to start with tests on this, please tell me, so I can save at least the time I already spent for silly problems. But blocking. As you know, I imagine, all problems on embedded platforms are silly when you discover why the occurs.
Well, the last thing I have not yet done is to test the ltib alternative as discussed in lpclinux.com.
At the actual date (to be precise in this moment) I have finished to flash the last build with Xephyr X11 server and twm as window manager. The board has a 320x240 fb screen with touch. I see the penguin when the platform start but - this is the actual problem - I am searching on how to configure some file that probably is missing because when I launch startx or xterm or twm or Xephyr I obtain always the message that the display :0 can't be opened.
I think that it can be a hardware problem because /dev/fb0 is present in the device list.
I am thinking to something collaborative with you if you are interested, later I write about, let me the time to think exactly on how this can be structured. If you like, obviously :)
