LiMobile - Linux SDK for iMobiles

The distribution LiMobile - Linux SDK for iMobile believe to be the first image (appliance) GNU / Linux distribution based on openSUSE created with the formidable tool SuseStudio. Designed exclusively to provide freedom to develop applications for Apple devices (iPhone, iPad) without the need to get a Macbook, Mac OS X and Xcode. Special thanks to Scott Jackson for parties Erisvaldo Gadelha shorten my learning and all that made possible the birth of this project.

The main objective of this initiative is to provide the composition of the rapid development environment for mobile devices from Apple even for users with little knowledge in GNU / Linux platform. As the main focus is to avoid inconvenience of installing packages and incompatible versions. Compile gcc to generate instructions and to IPAD iPhone does not need much special technique, because it is based on the Cortex A8 core ARM11 ;-)
