To Alex, James, and others,
I managed to successfully create the OE environment and build the
omap3-console-image successfully by following these advices provided by
"Do you want/need to build/compile your own os image to go on the gumstix ?
You will probably want to install linux (fedora or ubuntu) in a virtual
machine (virtual box or vmware workstatiob ) or on a spare pc.
Need to make sure you have enough hard drive space and ram.
A vm to build console images needs around 65GB and desktop type images
120GB hard drive space.
Then install the required packages and then the build tools.
Once you have installed ,setup and configured linux
then install the required packages for the linux distribution you are
using , instructions here
Then next follow the gumstix instructions
There are many images available for Gumstix:
(bitbake x-load MLO (OMAP3 bootstrap loader)
bitbake u-boot u-boot (boot loader)
bitbake virtual/kernel linux kernel
bitbake omap3-console-image Gumstix console image
I am kind of confused for which image I have to use. Is any image used for
a specific application? or it doesn't matter which image is used? To be
specific, I am going to used my Overo Water COM to implement image
compression and would like to be clear if the image used for Gumstix has to
be chosen according to my application.
Your suggestion will greatly be appreciated,
