I’m new to gumstix and linux and am muddling my way through setting up eclipse on my redhat development pc to build drivers for the gumstix.  I am now at a roadblock because my gumstix Overo Fire sitting on a Chestnut43 board does not have /etc/gumstix-release

 

What I have achieved so far is

-         created a bootable microSD

-          setup my build environment within redhat 5 running in VMWare on a Windows PC

-          installed eclipse within redhat 5

 

what I want to do is create a toolchain for the gumstix that eclipse can compile against, however to do this I need to complete a Buildroot which in turn needs the gumstix release number that my gumstix does not have. 

 

What to do?
