How different are all these Arm7 opensuse distributions?
They're not different at all from a "distribution" point of view. All
packages are the same basically, except maybe the kernel.
I'm a bit lost why a Beableboard differs from a
Because we're creating ready-to-go SD card images. Beagle and Panda have different
firmware (u-boot) that comes on the SD card. Because u-boot can only support one target at
a time, we have separate images.
As soon as the kernel is booted, they are essentially identical though. In fact, beagle
and panda even share the same kernel.
Now I get that some arm cpus lack hardware floating
point, so I can see hardware FP and software FP being a dividing line.
That's what the whole armv5 vs armv7 split is about
armv5 == soft float
armv7 == hard float
With those, packages on your installed system will differ. For image flavors of armv7
however, packages will be identical.
