  • Linux on the BeagleBoard, Part 1 – Introduction

Running Linux on the BeagleBoard is fairly simple. There are tons of images floating around with all kinds of Linux installations. However, if you are like me, you will at some point want to know how it all works, and build your own system from scratch. Doing so might seem hard to begin with, but it’s actually quite simple.

In this article series I will try to guide you through all the steps you need to take to get a basic Linux system up and running on the BeagleBoard. I will start by explaining how to build your toolchain, then move on to building the Linux kernel itself, and finally demonstrate how to build a filesystem containing applications which run on top of that Linux kernel.

To follow this series, you need to have some basic understanding of Linux and how to use the shell. You do not, however, have to be some kind of Linux guru!
