Submission + - Porting linux to device 3

aust.petrol writes: Hello — I'm getting an old Symbol PDT 8146, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to reverse engineer Linux for it?

I've tried looking for premade distributions, and nobody has done it. I've been programming for years, some C, no Kernel coding though.

Does anyone have any experience with this? What are the major hurdles? How does one test the builds on the device?

The version of Pocket PC that comes with them is too old for my purposes, but it's basically a little PC with a barcode scanner and wifi, which is exactly what I'm after for my project!

Thanks!
