Linux Distribution: Freepia
Url: http://www.freepia.org/

Freepia is a small GNU/Linux distribution designed to run on Via Epia-M Mainboards.

About Freepia
It currently runs on the M-9000 and M-10000 (ezra and nehemiah cpu) but with some modifications like kernel and X11 modules it should run on others too. (if someone has get it running on other Epia┬┤s let me know). The main motivation behind this project is to build a full featured, low noise media box to play movies/mp3s/images etc. For this it uses freevo but in the future there maybe support for others like mythtv or vdr.
