Embedded Linux Quick Start / Tutorial Videos

Free Electrons recorded some videos from the Embedded Linux Conference Europe, in Cambrigde, United Kingdom on October 2010 by Chris Simmonds, the founder of 2net Limited, a UK company providing training, consultancy and custom software for Linux and other embedded platforms.

The videos can either be downloaded in webm HD format at http://free-electrons.com/blog/elce-2010-tutorial-videos/ or you can watch them in HD format below.

The PDF slides for the three parts and the lab notes are available at http://elinux.org/images/c/cc/Linux-quick-start.tar.gz

The first video (53 minutes) deals with the following key points:

  • Genesis of a Linux project
  • The four elements: Tool chain; boot loader; kernel; user space
  • Element 1: Tool chain
  • Element 2: Boot loader

The second video (1h19m) focuses on:

  • Third element: Kernel
  • Fourth element: User space

The last video (1h07m) is more practical as it shows how to use embedded Linux on an NXP LPC3250 Stick (ARM9):

  • Description of the hardware
  • Installing the tool chain
  • Compiling the kernel
  • Configuring the U-Boot environment
  • Booting up
  • What to do next

If you want to try what they did by yourself on LPC3250, the USB stick (69 Euros) can be purchased at http://www.ehitex.de/p_info.php?products_id=373 and the COM board (69 Euros) at http://www.ehitex.de/p_info.php?products_id=310. eHitec is just one of the suppliers, you may also find it somewhere else.
