I'm enjoying hacking my Chumby One. However, I'd prefer if I could run PHP on it. I have
Does anyone know if I can compile PHP for it or if there is a ready made distro for Chumby that includes PHP?
PHP packages exist in Debian armel at least. If you install Debian, you should get php, properly integrated, as usual. There may be missing pieces or other traps, of course. I'm sure Netwinder/qube users and other arm boxes have run php.
It seems Debian has been a second class citizen only (chroot) in Chumbies. I've been hoping to do a full native install some day, but haven't had the time to try yet.
I looked around and found: Cross-compiled THTTPD server with PHP runs fine, but no PHP.
I'm not sure if it will work on Chumby, but it should provide a start since you are aiming to run PHP on an ARM processor and this person successfully got it running.
