Building Embedded Linux

filed under Project

I'm currently in the starting phase of my honours year project on "Building Embedded Linux".

Project Description:
This project looks at how to automatically build a small linux distributions, this means both the kernel and the rest of the OS, given constraints on the hardware platform. The reason for doing so is because embedded systems are usually constrained in terms of memory and storage. They may also not require the full generality of a distribution.

This project is motivated by an industrial partner which would be able to supply a development system for specific embedded target platforms. Related work is for example the Embedded Debian Project which makes use of the CML2 configuration system. However a more powerful system is envisaged for this project.

There is also an opportunity to be able to work with several players in the embedded arena such as Proxim.

I'll be posting my project activities on this blog, so that a project timeline can be drawn up easily when needed. As a start, I've been reading Robert Love's Linux Kernel Development and hope to finish it by mid-July.
