RE: [SLUG] Linux on Iphone


As a Linux guy & an iphone owner im confused as why you need to install
linux on a iphone ? ..

What are you trying to do, it already runs a BSD based deriviant, I have
SSH, Samaba a console and everything else I need, I can install apache
and any dev tools I need.

What are you interested in doing ? chances are it does it.

I can see if it had 3.5g a decent camera, real gps and ran Linux I would
go
for it... But there are linux Phones coming out that are more open, or
run
Linux by default these are the better options.
