C++ Development on Embedded Linux
I wanted to develop C++ Application On Embedded Linux.We are expecting some project on Set Top Box And Mobile Application.

I never worked On Embedded Linux So far.I have developed c++ application on Linux but not on Embedded Linux.

Is it possible to install Embedded Linux on PC.If it not possible to install please guide me hoe to learn embedded Linux.

i've never done this myself but it might be easier to use a 'cross compiler' to develop and do the compiling of the application you are writing on a different system, then install the binary on your embedded system, just a thought, gcc i believe can be used as such.

Hi -


Q: please guide me how to learn embedded Linux.
Suggestion - consider buying either (or both) of these books:

1. Embedded Linux Primer, Christopher Hallinan

2. Building Embedded Linux Systems, Karim Yaghmour, et al

Depending on your project's needs, I would strongly urge you to consider Linux for your development platform. Two benefits:

1. Better access to better cross-compilers (IMHO)

2. As you familiarize yourself with Linux as a development environment, you'll
also be familiarizing yourself with Linux as your embedded target environment.

Two birds with one stone :)
