A developer's review of leading embedded Linux toolkits

Author: JT Smith

Anonymous Reader writes, "In this special feature, software developer
Jerry Epplin examines the most prominent Embedded Linux
toolkits. In order to gain insight into the use of each toolkit
from the developer's perspective, Epplin builds Embedded Linux
OS images for several single board computers using each toolkit.
Each toolkit is then evaluated against a common set of criteria
which include ease of use, overall toolkit architecture, methods
of package management, diversity of platform support, and
openness of the source code. In the first installment, Epplin
takes a close-up look at Lineo's Embedix SDK 2.0."
