How to start learning Embedded Linux ?


Hi,
I have experience of working on Linux for the past 2 years now and I am in intermediate stage.
Now I want to work on embedd linux as I am looking to shift my career towards embedded systems and I feels that it will really help me if I CAN DO ONE PROJECT ON EMBEDDED LINUX.

Can some one tell me how to get any help on this ? from what kind of project should I start ? will sourceforge be helpful in this ?

Regards
Thanks

Strong recommendation: buy a copy of this book:

"Building Embedded Linux Systems", Karim Yaghmour; O'Reilly

It discusses all kinds of issues: starting with the toolchains you'll be using, through how you'll download and execute from your development to your target system, through how to tailor the kernel and the system to your particular needs. It covers a wide variety of architectures (from ARM through our old friend ix86 to other, more exotic, platforms). It covers a wide range of applications (industrial control, kiosks, etc). It covers design, it covers debugging. It even talks (frequently!) about "busybox".

If you're considering an embedded system with Linux, you absolutely need and want this book.

Sincerely .. Paul Santa Maria

HI,,
i am also new to Embedded linux , and i have the book which u suggested and it is excellent.
My questions is: i got a board with ARM9 to start embedded Linux. the chip itself is preloaded with Kernel 2.6.
The steps needed to build the tool chain as explained by Yaghmour, has the first step "Kernel Headers setup" .
Can i skip this step and use the one already in the uC ?
or i have to do this step?
thanks
