Hi Marc,
            I meant bootloader or firmware. I guess BIOS is more or less reserved for PC in the common langauge. I want to know the following since I am pretty new to gumstix: 1) Which of the open-source bootloaders can I use to learn by making changes to the source code and understand: a)  the hardware design and interactions between different components at the lowest level possible without having to load ready-made kernel and write device drivers. b) Understand the ARM instruction set. 2) I need a tutorial which serves as a guide to the software development on gumstix and also details the hardware design.

Thanks in advance!
Nar

It looks like it has a parallel interface? If that's brought out to pins,
then you should be able to drive it using the Linux framebuffer.

Define what you mean by "BIOS". If you're thinking in PC terms, then
you're barking up the wrong tree.

Hi Craig,



Yes, the app does run fine under desktop linux, but as you must have
realized my desktop is an old system (linux-2.6.8 circa 2004) - I think I
should probably upgrade it prior to proceeding any further. Once I am more
up to date, I will try again and let you know the result.



What is the best method for rebuilding the buildroot from scratch - I tried
"make clean; make" but it failed before completing the clean step. Is this
just another symptom of an old system, or is there a better way?



Regards,

Steve

If you're getting a segfault while using threads, my best guess is bad code
in your app. B Does the same app work on desktop linux?

Subject: [Gumstix-users] console st and PHP







Hi,



I am trying to use a connex 400xm, console st and netCF. I think this is like a NetMMC pack except with CF instead of MMC.



1. It doesn't seem to boot with both the console st and netCF cards connected. It will boot with the console st removed. Is there some way to make it boot with both cards?



2. I would like to write PHP web scripts but PHP is does not seem to be installed. I have spent hours trying to get the buildroot working (my friend's unix machine doesn't have ncurses or bison and I spent some time trying to get my Mac to do it but failed with something called "quilt".) Is there anywhere I can download a PHP binary that I could just copy into my filesystem?



Thanks

George
