Very minimal system without GUI. No network connection.
Usable system without GUI. Can connect to net via BT/WiFi/USB. Should
handle devices connected via CF or USB Host.
Like console image but with X11 environment.

Its symlink to x11-image.

Summary images will mount faster but takes a bit more space. I suggest
going into them if space allow (c760/860/1000).

In OpenZaurus times many people used altboot (or other tricks) to boot
from SD/CF/USB-Storage. Thats what for tarballs are - you can extract
them to card and use as rootfs. You can also use tarball to see what is
inside of rootfs which we provide (mounting jffs2 require more work).
modules-2.6.xx.tgz contains all kernel modules built for device. For most
of users it is not needed - some of developers use it instead of
installing kernel modules packages.
