ia32 embedded board for Linux / *BSD

有冇師兄用緊 Linux 在 ia32 embedded  board,
例如 PC engines ALIX, PC engines WRAP, Soekris 4501, Soekris 5501 .... 或其他。

What do you want to ask?

Those IA32 boards are plain normal PC, with perhaps some kind of SSD (or CF, SD) disk, network port, some I/O (say GPIO) etc.  So, installation of linux / freebsd should be easy (as long as the size of the SSD, RAM size and the speed of the processor is not an issue for your chosen distribution).

One point bear in mind, those embedded board is not server board equivalent, I mean, the remote control capability on BIOS (pre-boot) level.  So, you have to install your OS properly, and do your administration task remotely through your OS.

My 2 cents.

多謝你的分享,這裡資深 SA 和玩家多,所以我想找找有沒有師兄用 / 玩埋  linux / *BSD 落呢種 IA32 embedded board。

8 月電腦節時,見有間網絡公司 sale 呢 D board 佢對象是公司客(hardware + software + service),當然不適合玩家。

想交流下:
本地 / 深圳有冇零售...
對某張 board 一些使用心得或評語
embedded VS atom ITX 做 router / vpn / firewall 兩者優缺點

玩 embedded 好少用 x86,多數會用 ARM/MIPS

Pixel Magic 的 Crystalio 第一代是用x86的.

有個x86 distro 叫voyage 係由香港developer Punky Tse maintain.

good point .. 我真係井底鞋,找多些 arm/mips 資訊先。我估應該有師兄會用 embedded linux 。

我想用 embedded board 換走個 現成 router

你個 router 本身已經係一個好好嘅 embedded linux 練習場,睇下 openwrt.
