Open Hardware


Well, looks like openembedded has really sorted out my install/setup nightmare for this eval board... thanks you guys. In the last 4 hours, i've gotten more done with this board than i have in 6 months.

I will try and add an smdk2410.conf machine file to the setup soon... not that i expect it'll be useful to a lot of people, but i'll try to at least document it so that other machines can be supported easily enough.

Well I just got OE set up and I've been really impressed so far.

OE takes all of the hassle out of cross-compiling.
