Ruby on gumstix


#1

Looks like I will have a chance to play around with a small fleet of
Gumstix (http://www.gumstix.org/). Does anyone have any experience with
ruby on them? (They have linux 2.6 on flash, Intel XScale processor, and
gcc 3.4 toolchain, so it seems hopeful…)

Duuude. I’m drooling here.

If I had infinite time, I’d be sticking Linux add-ons to my
toaster and coffeemaker.

You don’t need infinite time but something easy to port :slight_smile:

That thing is no ADDON. NetBSD is driving the toaster. And oh yeah.
Ruby
should run on it, too :slight_smile:

Well, to answer my own post, it looks like ruby is buildable, and may
make it into the standard set of tools:
