  1. What embedded linux distro is good for newbie and has build environment ?

    Hi,

    I'd like to get started in embedded linux. I'm using Suse 9.2 on desktop and
    would like to work on it, but I guess it's not so popular in embeded world -
    although quite some of guys use Suse rescue system as barebone base for
    Asterisk (great open source PBX) embedded instalations - does anyone have
    any experience or more info on embedding Suse ?

    So I wonder which distro would be recommended for newbie - good docs, build
    environment to compile custom apps, etc... ?

    Any sites for embedded linux newbies ?

    Thanks in advance,

    regards,

    Rob.

    What processor? Does it have a MMU?

    Hi,

    thanks for response. I guess your question has got me into thinking that
    maybe I'm posting to wrong group. I'd like to do barebone minimal distro on
    my own, with no special target embedded HW - it can be general P4 PC. Is
    this group right to post such topics, or should I post some where else (like
    setup ,...) ?

    Regards,

    Rob.

    ..hardware or .setup might be better.

    In any case, for building small systems, I like gentoo. Boot the cdrom; create
    your partitions manually, copy the cdrom stage files to the HD. Then build
    the kernel and get it bootable. From there, have it compile the system and
    you're ready to go. As small or big as you want.
    I used gentoo for a remote tvset computer; built a kernel to mount an nfs
    partition and had my big desktop do all the compilation work by chrooting
    to that partition.

    Well, I am trying to talk my new employer into trying out an ARM-based
    embedded system.... Something along the lines of the TS-7000 from
    embeddedarm.com...

    Any guidance for newbies on that one?

    BitBake and OpenEmbedded (http://openembedded.org) provide a distribution independent
    buildsystem and a huge metadata repository that can get you started in nearly no time.

    We build the embedded linux distributions Familiar Linux, OpenZaurus, OpenSIMpad,
    OpenPsion etc. using these powerful tools.
