Title: Building Linux Kernel, Root Filesystem and Toolchain - SAM9-L9260
Post by: notronrj on September 21, 2013, 11:14:55 pm
NOTE: Willing to pay $200 USD via PayPal for specific detailed help/instructions.

Hello Everybody,

I've used the search engines. However, for buildroot, OE and Angstrom I can find generic instructions for using the systems, however it is unclear to me how to build the various parts ( kernel, toolchain, filesystem ) specifically for AT91SAM9260.

I'm having a hard time putting all of the pieces together. I was able to build a root filesystem using buildroot, but I *don't* want to use uClibc.

I am willing to pay somebody via PayPal $200 USD for detailed instructions on how to build the kernel, toolchain and root filesystem for AT91SAM9260 ( Olimex SAM9-L9260 ) using Angstrom/OE. The reason I am willing to pay is that I am working on project and I don't have a lot of time to figure this all out. I'd love to solve it on my own, but I am on a deadline....

Anybody willing to help me out?

You should be able to build upon another c library using an external toolchain, also take a look at this commit:
- http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=8d29893893fe25461abef645bfd38bf2f49c59a4

which enables to use eglibc in the buildroot toolchain backend.
