So got already the first problem …
Using VMware and installed a Fedora image through it.
Every time I put in the my SD-Card –nothing is appearing, nothing at all.
Now in the manual I read to put unmount my device:
$ sudo umount /dev/sde1
How come that I can`t even find sde1 in my dev-folder??
What should I do?
Is there any command with which I can get the SD-Card-Device?
*cough*Ubuntu*cough* ;) ...just kidding, it’s personal preference mostly.
Do have a read about and look for people doing similar work to what you want to achieve. There are nuances and compatibility with different aspects of the build tools which don’t get on with different distros depending on what you’re doing. If you have no previous Linux experience, make your decision based on those...
I see, thank you Ben!
Going to try it with the virtual machine –fedora.
Windows doesn’t natively give you enough control of the SD card file system to make a working bootable card.
If you want to make a bootable image, but only have a Windows machine with no option for getting a dedicated Linux box you can:
-Get a bootable Linux CD (Live CD, but this isn’t persistent and not much use for development)
-Use CygWin (A Linux abstraction layer like WINE in reverse, but this isn’t ideal)
-Install a virtual machine host like Virtual Box, then create a virtual Linux machine inside it (This is what I do)
If you want to develop for Gumstix, you are really going to need a Linux development computer at some stage... I’d suggest using Virtual Box, have a Google for it.
Dear Members, dear helpers,
I am trying to find a manual to create a bootable MicroSD Card on Windows?
I thought maybe you already got some information or a tutorial online about that, which I just can`t find.
Waiting desperately for an answer…
