I have an Android dev phone 1, which I am using it for all purposes other than calling :-) It is ARM arch.

I want to build and install standard linux (linux kernel + GNU user land software stack) on it. Gentoo seeems to be good choice for this. Where should I start? Any right place to start this with?

If not Gentoo, let me know any where else I can start?

You just need to get a kernel and then a way to put a stage3 in storage and boot from it...

What processor does it have? And what do you use to access the console?

1. Processor :
The processor details are given below
Qualcomm® MSM7201A, 528 MHz Supported Instruction Set(s): ARMv6 & CPU Core: ARM1136EJ-S
http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=cpu&id=a7201a&c=qualcomm_msm7201a

Can I use any ARM cross-compiled linux?

2. adb is the tool provided by android project for client-server based console access, adb client is running in dev system.

I am new to this kind of low level build and please point me to right place.

Okay...

Yes, you can use whatever you crosscompile...the important thing is that YOU are able to crosscompile a package. As in, for example perl, has some issues crosscompiling.

Since i don't know anyone running Gentoo on that phone, and you said you're new on this kind of thing, i would suggest using debian: http://www.saurik.com/id/10

Thanks for swift reply. I too lokked into that Debian solution, I just want to try some thing from scratch like http://trac.cross-lfs.org, which has good documentation also, but I don't find ARM cross compilation.

Thanks for your support, let me google more on this.
