Which linux distribution for gcc beginner
I’m an experienced embedded software developer but I’ve never
used Linux or GCC. Which Linux distribution would you recommend
for a beginner? I expect to be able to dual boot with Windows.
I was planning to buy the Red Hat Linux 9 Bible but Red Hat has
moved on to newer versions. Is there something else that would be

Hello Friends, I am working as Embedded System Designer with 4 years of experience in C programming(C51, PIC, ARM, AVR) up to 32 bit. Now i want to learn embedded Linux programming. my query is ==gt from where, I am starting with Embedded Linux? ==gt which starter Kit is useful for better experience on Linux? ==gt Friendly ARM board is better or not for beginner? Thanks amp Regards, Ghanshyam Rajsthan - IndiaI have order a Rasberry PI and my delivery time in Canada is between mid April to early May. I have an old Windows XP machine that I would like to convert to a Linux machine to do some practice and to gain an understanding about Linux before my Raspberry PI arrives. I see from this forum that Fedora seems to be the "supported" platform; assuming I am correct then I would want to learn this one. When I go to fedoraproject.org I see that there are 4 different downloads: 1. Fedora Desktop -- GNOME-based 2. KDE spin 3. LXDE spin 4. Xfce spin Which of the above ...Hi, I am trying to boot Linux on my development board and it stucks somewhere, -- I do not see log in prompt on my Hyper Terminal. I am new to embedded Linux stuff, and not sure how to debug this. In standalone mode, I usually start GDB to trace the software and see on which code is the problem, but how should I do for Linux? I was told briefly that Linux turns on MMU in the very early stage which makes it very difficault to debug kernel. How true is it? I wonder if ...Hi friends, I am beginner to Operating system. I want to port linux on my LPC3180 board. How can i get the images and boot files for linux or U-boot? and can I install the linux or u-boot using Keil or ULINK2 debuugger. your comments will be highly appreciated.I'm going to be working on a PC/104 (x86) embedded single board computer for an upcoming project. I'll be running an embedded Linux distribution for the target operating system. I don't want to have to compile on the target, I'd prefer to compile on a host development machine with more horsepower. Under what circumstances is a cross-compiler required? The development host will be running either a standard Linux distribution (probably Mandrake 9) or possibly Cygwin. If the host and target machines are running different versions of the Linux kernel, or libC, is a cross-compiler required? If so can someone point me to ...I'm designing an embedded Linux board for use as a web-based controller. It will be based around an Atmel AT91SAM9G20, which uses an ARM926EJ-S core. Anyone have particularly good or bad experiences with bootloaders? More broadly, how should I go about building/choosing a Linux distribution for this board?Hi, I am finally reaching the end of my patience in trying to keep Test code running under DOS/Win98 etc. It is fast becomming a situation where I am spending 10 times more time trying to get my test app going on a PC than I spend coding the embedded app in the first place. I am thinking of using a "Real Time" linux on a PC for hosting my test apps.

I mean without the Linux on the Grashopper. Can I build standalone applications and load them somehow into the board without using a JTAG programmer. Maybe U-Boot can also load binary images? Is there a sample project somewhere which shows the way it goes? You may ask why I want to do so? For me such OSes like Linux (Windows also) made it all much complicated, especially to a non-Linux programmer like me. The AP7000 chip features much nice hardware.

Infact, as we can see here: The minimum system requirements of MpLabX, is for an 800 Mhz CPU and 512 Mb RAM size, but the Beagle one has a 720 Mhz CPU and 256 RAM, so apparently BeagleBone can't plays full distribution of MPLabX itself, now my question is: is possible ...Of course there is a linux version of the CCS compiler. It seems to lag the windows version a bit. As of today the linux version was at 4.107 and the windows version at 4.112. Today I successfully got the windows version of the compiler to work in LINUX. I was using WINE 1.3.1. I had to add the devices and drivers directories (from the PICC folder) to the project file otherwise the compiler couldn't find them but everything otherwise worked perfectly. I made a build.sh file that directly calls the CCS compiler from right where it resides on the ...Hi, I'm looking for a device that will fit in a 5.25" drive bay of a PC. It should have an LCD display, and a few buttons. The goal of this is to allow network configuration of the PC through the device. The PC will be running a custom distribution of linux. If you have any pointers, send 'em my way. I know that I've seen this sort of thing before, but don't remember where.

So all of you (and us) Linux lovers can now put down your Virtual Machines to rest, and enjoy all the benefits of Linux-native mikroBootloader application with your favorite PIC-Ready1 or Xmega-Ready board. We know that multiplatform support is very important aspect of every modern software, and lot of us here in mikroElektronika use different platforms: Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Mac and Android. Diversity is always an advantage.*** The Pic Boot Loader (PBL) Project *** I wrote a bootloader for midrange pic parts using the CCS compiler, and also wrote PC application programs which work in concert with it. All of the source code for the bootloader and application programs is available on my public source code repository here: http://qrvc.com/viewvc/projects/misc/picbootloader/?root=svn The source code and windows executable can be downloaded as a tarball from the above URL. I wrote all of this to solve the shortcomings I saw with currently available bootloaders: 1. No source code available for the PC loader application programs. 2.
