OpenCPN on Beagleboard

Hello all,

I have a system setup on a Beagleboard (rev C4), with a Lillyput high brightness small LCD w/a touchscreen (eGalax). I have it up and running with Ubuntu 9.04 and it worked good, but I never could get the touchscreen going. Next I decided to upgrade to the latest OpenCPN version (2.5) but needed to upgrade Ubuntu to 10.10. This turned out to be WAY to slow, and the touchscreen never worked.

So I am looking to install a Linux version that supports a touchscreen (i.e. Angstrom), is faster, but also will allow me to compile OpenCPN.

Does anyone have any suggestions!? Has anyone got OpenCPN working with Angstrom?
