How to port openCPN to ARM

HI, All

I want to port OpenCPN to the ARM processor. My board is S3C2440 based ARM 9. But the CPU is low, only 400MHz. The SDRAM is 64MB. The FLASH is 64MB Nand Flash and 2MB Nor Flash. The linux kennel is At all, the board is low performance.

I has compile the OpenCPN codes on the windows and Fedora 13. Now I want to port it to arm.
In the forums, I saw that somebody has ported OCPN to ARM cortex A8 successfully. But no details steps are in the forums. Now I try to do this work.
And there is my first to port codes to ARM platform. So it is difficult.

At the first, I only hopes that it can work on the arm. The performance is second issue. If port successfully, I want to cut some feature and reduce S57 map.

Somebody, Could you give me some helps how to port to ARM? Some details steps or documents.
Thank you for your consideration and I will be looking forward to your reply.

Re: How to port openCPN to ARM

Well, until you have wxWidgets ported there is not much you can do with OpenCPN. So I would say to start working with getting wxWidgets compiling and running.

For that job you will probably get much more knowing help over at the wxWidgets forums.

(Others have successfully ran OpenCPN on the Rasberry Pi, so it is possible!)
