Embedded Linux on ARM Platform

Started by Buzz Berry June 23, 2004
Hi,

I have ARM Platform evaluation board (ARM integrator/CP & ARM 920T
Processor) in my office.

I am a newbie in this area, so just wondering if I can utilise the
above platform to be operated under embedded linux OS. (ucLinux or
others).

How to upload the embedded linux OS to the above platform ?

FYI, the platform is connected to my PC using multi ICE interface. I
use this interface to upload all of my C Code to the platform.

Anyone can direct me to some useful URL ?

Thanks.

Best regards.

Buzz

With an ARM920T I believe you should be able to run full Linux - ucLinux is only required for processors with no MMU/MPU.

Usually with afu.axf or bootfu.axf IIRC - both come with the ARM Firmware Suite. This may have come with your multi ICE (if it's an ARM multi ICE?), more info here: http://www.arm.com/products/DevTools/FirmwareSuite.html

http://www.arm.com/community/os/806.html should have some more useful info on prebuilt Linux binaries for that platform. HTH, Pete
