Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce that the latest erlang R10B-5 has been ported to run 
on linksys nslu2, complete with SAE and openssl support, but with HiPE 

For those unfamiliar with this device, see the following links:

It's basically a tiny XSCALE based network appliance (266MHz CPU, 32M RAM) 
that allows you attach USB devices, with very low power consumption and 
completely silent.

I'd think it's a perfect little node for Erlang. The packaging erlang.mk and 
associated patches are checked in


and binary ipkg will be available as soon as it's built on the official 
build machine.

The next step is try to get it cross build as the complete native 
compilation took about 10 hours.

Does anyone know what it takes to port HiPE to ARM? And how much performance 
gain can one expect?
