    Hello, I was wondering if you guys would consider having a meeting that talks about how to compile you own custom version of the Linux kernel and then drop the newly compiled kernel code into an embedded device storage so that it can boot and run.

    By the way, I am very new to Linux so I have no idea what I am talking about here, I may be asking for something completely irrational.

    All I really want is to get an idea of what it takes to manually build an embedded Linux OS instead of using some stock OS image.

      Hi Rene,

      That should be a simple and relevant topic.

      In the mean time, you should definitely checkout the Yocto Project. It is a Linux Foundation Initiative to standardisze the build issue of kernels / file systems / custom-distros in embedded systems. It is now being extensively used by lots of embedded systems.


      But specifically, BeagleBone Black is an excellent low cost choice to try this out.

      Below are a few links:

      More importantly, here's an excellent video that gives the overview of the OpenEmbedded/bitbake build system.­=...­

      Hope this helps.. See you at the next dfw-linux-meetup.
