Dear Gumstix users,

As J suggested, I'd really love to build my gumstix environment from scratch. But before doing so, I would like to take your advices before buy a new machine (Mac Pro). Will it be okay to have a Mac Pro (Apple) then install Ubuntu 10.04 in it so that I could choose which OS to use during the boot system? I'd really like to use Ubuntu on Mac Pro (Apple) for the overo build environment if possible.

I am looking forward hearing from you,
Gutembert.

Yes J,

I believe that will be the right way! I will buy a new Laptop then install Ubuntu 10.04 and start from scratch. More advices on Laptop's make, Ram, Processor, etc and Ubuntu 10.04 32/64 bits are welcome.

Thanks J,
Gutembert.

Just a quick verification: did you also follow the steps from here: http://gumstix.org/how-to/70-writing-images-to-flash.html or http://wiki.gumstix.org/index.php?title=U-Boot ?

In my case, I did not; is it part of preparing for the SD Card booting process?

Thank you,
Gutembert.

hmmm I did not run into anything like that..but I guess when I did it I started from scratch. I followed pretty much all the steps on the gumstix.net tutorial but checked out a different open.embedded. Did you make mods to the angst-2008-perf-versions before hand? I made changes to the 2010 one I think..for the TI stuff.also why are you changing autoconf? what does that do? The only mod I made was to the local.conf adding the preferred version of 2.6.34..what i would do is check the recipes folder under linux folder and see if there is a linux-omap3-2.6.24 folder. If the checkout went well there should be one.

- On a side note I have not yet been able to boot the 2.6.34 image..its driving me mad! I just deleted my tmp folder and rebuilt it again to see if it will work..I'll let you know how it goes. I might revert back to the 3.0 kernel

I personally find Ubuntu 10.04 to work the smoothest for the overo build environment.
