I've been (unsuccessfully) attempting to set up a machine definition
for a TomTom GO 910. I think the task was too daunting for an Angstrom
initiates first try, particularly as I am trying to get bitbake to
download, patch and build the official TomTom released code.
I haven't heard of the Iris before, but how similar is it to the
Zaurus? If it's not too different, and a more experienced dev hasn't
already stepped up to the task, I wouldn't mind trying my hand at it
as perhaps an easier introduction into the Angstrom world.
Let me know if it's still available, as well as the size + weight of
the unit so I can investigate shipping costs to Australia,
