I had shelved my old gumstix project a while ago, and I was just
going to pick it back up, but I when I visited the website earlier today
I noticed that my board is no longer available. I have a basix 400bt,
the one with a an MMC slot and on board bluetooth, is it supported by
OE? I put the project down just as gumstix was switching to OE. All I
really want is to use bluetooth and gpsd, most everything else its doing
is talking to another device, crunching some numbers, and logging data
on the MMC card. Can this be done under OE with my board, or am I stuck
with guessing buildroot numbers again?
As long as you have a gpstix, you should be able to connext the gpstix to it
via the 60-pin I/O header.
Why do you have to guess the buildroot number? Can't you find out the
buildroot number by:
$ cat /etc/gumstix-release | grep RELEASE
You could send the basix board back to gs to be reflashed to OM, but I don't
see why buildroot can't do what you need to do. In fact, most of the s/w
available on the web (such as gpsd) can be used to run the gpstix via
basix/connex using buildroot. My suggestion is stick to buildroot.

I guess I was really trying to see if anybody has had trouble with
the combination of items I had mentioned earlier (bluetooth, gpsd,
SD/MMC, and such) while using OE, because I would prefer the
environment. The guesswork I was referring to was meant as guessing
which buildroot version number has the best support for all of those
items combined. I don't have the board here at the moment, so I
couldn't tell you what buildroot revision it has on it, although I want
to say it was something like mid or upper 1300s. I guess I should just
try OE, as I have reflashed the stix myself several times without
incident in the past.
