1  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Has Anyone Built A Live CD for Development? on: August 03, 2009, 11:34:11 AM
I've build a system using this CD, but can't seem to connect using minicom. I don't see /dev/ttyUSB0 or something similar. What am I doing wrong? Or what else should I be doing?

Thanks,

Ken

I downloaded it again, got the right md5sum this time, and installed just fine.

Thanks,

Ken

I'm having trouble with the file. I ran an md5sum on it and got:
f5cf081d4361ea32230449226efebec6  ubuntu-8.04.2-desktop-i386-sheevaplug.iso

When I check the actual iso, I find that three files don't match the internal checksums. Two of them are manifest files and should not matter. The third is ./casper/filesystem.squashfs. I'm sure that does matter.

I was unable to burn a cdrom of the iso file. I suspect that it is just a hair too big. I burned it onto a USB key instead.

Questions:
1 -- Is the md5sum for the overall file correct?
2 -- Has anyone actually successfully booted from this disk?

Thanks for all your efforts.

Regards,

Ken

Yes. Mindbender has it just right. Everything should be configured and ready to go. The cross compiler should be in the right place, the path set correctly, etc.

Yup. The whole thing. Add a machine, stir and go.  Wink

It would simplify things if a developer could just boot with the CD and have everything ready to go. Connect the target to the USB, connect an ethernet, and you would be all set.

Ideally, the arm kernel would be setup with the common modules. Just select the ones you want, type make, etc.

The beauty of a live CD is that it can be booted on most any machine and be ready to go in a few minutes.

Installing the development environment can be a pain. Installing openocd requires libusb and libfdti which requires... Installing gcc requires proper paths to be set up, etc.

It would be neat if someone build a Live CD with an Ubuntu (or whatever) distribution containing everything needed so that we could do stuff out of the box. The live CD I'm familiar with (EMC2) lets you run directly from the cd, or do an install. I'd be happy with the requirement to do an install, but either way would work just fine.
