It's strange to read about the gumstix here. For a moment I thought

I happened to have the cross-development environment already compiled,
and it only took a couple hours to get R10B-8 running, following your

It takes 70 seconds to start erl over NFS and Bluetooth, but then
the shell feels very responsive.
