This is my first st on the subject, I’ll try to avoid silly questions. That means I’ll do my homework first. Got several good books “Mastering Embedded Linux Programming” by Chris Simmonds seems to be a good one and has a reference to 96Boards in there.
First a recap of what I have so far:
- Grabbed a fresh DragonBoard 410C and installed latest Debian distribution.
It took me a while to figure out which one of all these is the correct one (a readme file explaining what are those files would be great):
Downloaded the full install (non developer) version for SD installation and burned the image into SD card. The first attempt to load it didn’t work, I got some errors and command line but not GUI. I try to reload it but it seems that SD card image gets destroyed during the OS installation and needs to be reloaded before each install. So, I burned it again in the SD from the downloaded image and the second time I got the graphical environment. The target is ready needing only some libs but I found help on how to do that in this forum.
I downloaded the latest distro of Fedora and loaded it into VMWare virtual machine. It worked as a charm out of the box. now I need to install the toolchain there.
Can someone tell me what I need from all this and how to install it in Fedora?
again a README file explaining what is the purpose of the contents in each of those directories would go a long way.
That’s all for now.
