Presentation: Choosing an Embedded Linux

Apr 24, 2002 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

This is the slide presentation given by John Lombardo (author of Embedded Linux, published by New Riders) at the Embedded Linux Expo & Conference (ELEC) held in Reston, VA during November, 2001. Quoting from the introduction . . .

“Once you have decided to use Linux in your embedded application, now you need to choose how to assemble your kernel and applications suite together into a bootable image. Two years ago, the choice was easy — roll your own. Now there is a vast array of embedded Linux toolkits from companies like Red Hat, Lineo, and MontaVista. There are also several Open Source projects like PeeWee Linux and Midori. The question is — how do you choose the right toolkit? Find out about the current state-of-the-art in Embedded Linux toolkits and how to choose among them.”
