I had the idea of running linux from an iPod shuffle. I did a quick google seach (run linux on an iPod shuffle) but nothing came up. I then thought I'd find the answer at shufflehacks but nothing. I was wondering if you knew of any site where I could make this possible. I do not want to run linux on the iPod shuffle but from it. That means I can plug the shuffle in and I can have linux boot up from the shuffle. I am not looking for somthing like ipodlinux.org.
Anyone got any ideas? If so please post them in the comments. Off hand I think there are a few Linux distros built specifically for USB jump drives. Perhaps one of these could work. Comments anyone?
