I just purchased a gumstix basix for use in a fixture I am designing
to test a board we have designed. As I was expecting it to arrive in
the mail sometime yesterday, I arrived at work at about 8:30 and said
to myself, "Gee, I should probably get started on the software
component of the test fixture." So I grabbed the latest buildroot
from subversion, configured it to enable python and to disable
features such as wireless support of which I have no need, and fired
off the make, knowing it would take some time. By the time I had
finished my lunch and received the board, I was able to download the
new root filesystem, boot the board, download my python scripts, and
demonstrate that they worked on the basix by 2:30 that afternoon.
It was quite gratifying to be able to run the same python scripts I
have been using on my x86 Linux host on an 80x20mm basix board.
Thanks to Gumstix for such an excellent product, and to the community
for excellent support.
