Thats right. And I would really like to do so. But unfortunately there
is not much information around about the hardware. Since the box
originally runs a wince system, this project is more like a _free time_
projects of some Linux enthusiasts.

You can get a overview about this here: http://www.t-hack.com/wiki/
There is also a forum, but unfortunately most posts are in German ..

Ok, there is not much information about the smp8634 out there, which is
really a pity. I know that Sigma is not really interested in publishing
there specifications. Even the gpl part is not published, but I am sure
you already know this :-)

Do you know how to get some more detailed information about the smp8634?

Ok, there are some parts that are not equal, like memory and flash! But
this is a SoC, so most parts are the same.

Ok, thanks, so we can cancel this on our todo-list ..
