VersaLogic Corp. (Eugene OR) provides Linux board support packages (BSPs) for two of its single board computers, the Gecko and Puma. The packages are based on the Debian Linux, which has been configured for installation and support of each board's hardware features.

The Linux install CD eliminates the need for O/S configuration and driver installation by the developer. The Debian Linux OS can be used during system development as a means of exploring the capabilities of the board, or it can be used as the base OS in the target system. The software is intended for engineers who wish to use the Linux operating system, but who are not familiar with the required setup procedures.
